OOH I'm in love with digital images...

and I do have a fondness for Halloween images too so when I saw this image on Mo Manning's site I just had to get it along with a few others I used copics to colour her in and found a backing sheet I'd made with bats and webs on it. I just distressed the edges a bit and added a moon.

Image:Mo Manning digital image
Inks:momento, black soot distress ink,copics to colour

I just loved this set when I saw it in the catalogue so had to have it as I am with the majority of the stamp sets I see from Stampin Up (there is no hope for me I think )

Supplies: by Stampin Up

Roll on tuesday for some peace from sponge bob and chowder Ive had a play with my copics again and my PTI sets looked forlorn on their new shelf so I had to get them out too lol.

When I saw this stamp set in the SU mini catalogue I knew I had to have it as I think it makes fabulous men's cards.
