Halloween time at Crafty Calendar

It's back to work for me this morning after a great week off, I've really enjoyed my break and it couldn't have been better timed because of the fabulous weather we've had this week :o)

On Thursday evening Neil and I went to an open evening to view the brand new visitor's centre at Rosslyn Chapel and to listen to an update by the stone and glass conservators who have been working on the chapel for quite a number of years now - the improvements they have made to the fabric of the building has been tremendous and although they will be continuing with their painstaking work for a bit longer the chapel is looking stunning with it's restored stained glass. Neil has his first full day as a guide for the chapel today and although very nervous is looking forward to his new challenge and sharing the fascinating history of building with visitors from all over the world.

October's theme at Crafty Calendar is Halloween - not a theme that I particularly like as we don't really send Halloween cards in the UK so I never really know what to do with the cards I make. However it was an excuse to use this fantastic Mo Manning digi again, I so love Bronte dressed as a cat - hilarious! The image was coloured with Promarkers and I added a little stamped spider and web which are long retired Stampin Up stamps.

I do like this digi but as you say what would I do with it, I'm trying to be good so I will just admire you creation instead of buying it!

Oh Jenni, what a great card! I love all things Mo, and this image is just perfect. What a sweet grey glow around her, and the spider in the corner is perfect. Adorable blog design too, it looks like fall but at closer peek has snowflakes and such! :) Thank you for joining in on our Hats Off challenge at Raise The Bar this week!
