Pollycraft Monday Challenge #116 Spooky Goings On

Good morning all!  It's another beautiful autumnal day here in Athens and the garbage in our street is finally being removed!  Yay!  I can't help but think that they have created a lot of extra work for themselves though as the bins were full weeks ago and people have been dumping rubbish bags in the streets in the general vicinity of the bins instead.  

It's time for a new challenge at Pollycraft Monday.  We had loads of fabulous entries into our Girls Girls Girls challenge last week.  This week it was Mary J's turn to choose the theme and in honour of the upcoming Halloween celebrations she chose:

Spooky Goings On!

This weeks prize is a very cool 10 digis from our very own Pollycraft!  

My teamies have once again created some fabulous projects for your inspiration.  Head on over to the Pollycraft Monday blog for a look!

For my card, I decided to use Lil Spook from the Swings and Slides collection...  He's just so cute!

I have followed this week's sketch from Sketch Saturday (a tricky one I thought) and added a cobweb in thread over the top.  The papers are a mixture of Webster's Pages, Crate Paper and Cosmo Cricket.  The buttons are by Jenni Bowlin and I have inked the edges around my image with Memento Tuxedo black ink.  The sentiment is made with Pollycraft sentiment stamps and Doodlbug rub ons and googly eyes.

Hhhmmm.... and now that I see the picture, I can see that one of my black pearls has fallen off from the far right of the card.... I will have to have a hunt for it and glue it back on!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday: Week #178

And here's a close up of my Lil Spook...

Have a lovely week!
