DT Post - Lexi's Creations meets several challenges ...

The weekend seems to have flown by, and it is wet Monday again!!!  I image my dear BIL is going back to work today very unhappy - he is a golfer, and as his daughter lives virtually on top of Celtic Manor in Wales, she got him tickets for his birthday for the practice days and  match days for the Ryder Cup, and the majority of the time it has been totally awash down there.

So, Monday is also the day for Lexi's Creations, and the theme is Spooky. 

This week our Sponsor is the fabulous Joanna Sheen

The winner will receive a £10 Voucher to spend in her Online Craft Shop.



I have used Vamp Girl from Lexi.  She has been coloured with copics, with some sparkle given to her Wings and Boots.  Don't you just love those holey stockings.  It certainly takes me back some years!




The orange wash background paper has been stamped with a spider, and just below the lace I have stamped a cat, which is trying to look a little scarey.  As I do not have a cobweb punch I used a lacy one to make it look a little webby, though I know it won''t fool most people.  My sentiment is computer generated, and I have added a flower from Prima, which has been in my stash for white a while. 

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes #38 - Something from your stash - mine is lace, flower and gems..
Cowgirls Sunday Stampen' Challenge - Anything goes
The Crafty Pad Challenge #91 - Spooky
Gingerloft Challenge #3 - Glitter or Bling - I have both
I did it Creations Challenge 24 - Spooky Special
One Stitch at a Time Challenge 33 - Spooky Special
Stamp Scrap and Doodle Saturdays - Anything goes
Baby Bud Designs Challenge 1 -  Fall or Halloween
Sew Many Cards - Anything Goes



Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments.

  7. Hi Val, Sorry I've not visited again for a while and boy have you been busy! I seem to spend my life chasing my own tail at the moment. Real life is interfering with my crafting life big time, Lol!

    I love this card (and yes, I remember those stockings too and the holes,Haha!). Lucky you having those Stampotiques. I think they are my two favourite stamps in their catalogue and every time I decide I'm going to buy them they're out of stock, Lol!

    Hugs
