Well it's the school holidays where we stay, so Colin is at home with me for the next two weeks.  We haven't really got much planned, just days here and there and catching up on odd jobs.

Today however is new challenge day over at An Oldie But A Goodie and Helen has chosen

(Please also use an item older than 6 months on your project and tell us what it is. )

So here is my spooky card...

Sponsoring us for the first time this time are Sk Digi who very kindly gave us DT gals a stamp of our choice and who are offering our winner some free digi's.  Check out their store, they have loads of fun stamps.

Back to my card, and it uses an old crepe bandage, an old ribbon - used it last year too! and a great Sk Digi image called Little Mummy, available here.

A really simple card to make, with just a touch of shading on the bandages and some glossy accents on the eyes.

Cards For Men - Halloween - This will be going to my son to remind him that his Mummy expects him to keep his flat clean and tidy!
