Well it's getting closer to the day now - I went to the allotment yesterday and collected more pumpkins - hopefully I will show you some carved ones soon...

I had taken the little barrow down to transfer strawberry plants from Mum and Dad's
 - it seemed a good place for the pumpkins! -
 and the other picture is some of the Autumn Harvest back home with Mum...

So back to my 31DOH Album...

My Box album contains 6 sleeves which have been decorated front and back -
 I am now working on my last sleeve!

Each sleeve has two 'postcard' makes,
 made back to back to slide in and far you have seen these...

Today I am adding one using a 'Smeared Ink' image to the collection...
this is another of my favourites!

This is Dead Dancer Falling...the image was printed on water colour paper on to which I added a variety of Distress inks.

Behind the image is black card matted with some Graphic 45 paper.

I also added a Corner Gargoyle from Delicious Doodles coloured with Promarkers.

Then some metal butterflies...

Finally I added a Viva Las Vegas '31' stamp stamped with Versafine on white card distressed with Scattered twigs and matted on the same papers as the main card.

I will link this to the Butterfly Challenge Numbers

Today is also the beginning of another challenge at Left of Center

 sponsored by Limited Runs 'Use your Skull'

This ATC is a sneaky peek of my 'pink page' inspired by the Challenge at
The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - Pink Halloween
I will link this ATC to the Challenge but there will be more to see in a day or two!!

I used  Deadly Cupcake coloured with Promarkers. I found various pink and sparkly papers in my stash, a cupcake banner, and some pearls...
I will link this to Fresh Brewed Designs Sweet Treats

Hope I will see your make at LOC!

Happy Hopping!


  1. I don't do Halloween cards myself but I do like the card you have done here. I love the ballet dancer pose and the butterflies are a great addition and work well with your theme. Thankyou for fluttering by my#41 hugs Mrs A.

    1. Thank you Mrs A - we have always done Halloween as it is my sister's Birthday - we have always had special parties! I didn't think butterflies would really go with Halloween but somehow these little gold metal ones just seemed to look right! Thanks for your kind comment!
