Have a Spooky Halloween with Last Minute Manda

Hello everyone - wishing you a lovely Saturday ! I hope you have all had a good week. We went out with friends this week to celebrate 5 years living in Spain permanently.

It was lovely to share our special day down on the coast having a delicious meal at one of our favourite restaurants - if anyone is ever in Nerja I can highly recommend going to The Curry House The food is wonderful and the staff are so friendly and their attention is always second to non.

I'm back today with my second Halloween card in my mini series for Last Minute Manda.

Todays card again is using the oh so cute  Ghostly Good Time digital stamp set .
Just a simple card layout with a little stencilling on the background panel.

I forgot to mention last week - the black sentiment strips I have used on all of my Halloween cards is created by me using a Halloween font downloaded from CreativeFabrica

The main image again has been coloured with my Promarkers (see below for colours used) sticking with the Triadic Halloween colour palette which was perfect for the strip of designer paper that I used from my stash.

Ill let you into a little secret - I had to google the little cone shaped sweets, to learn what they were and how to colour them too ! - apparently this is candy corn and very popular in the US.

Have you had a chance yet to have a look at the new Last Minute Manda store ?

There are some wonderful digital stamps for colouring and did you know there are pre-coloured images too if you prefer not to colour... why not head over and take a look...and if you fancy a bit of shopping if you use my DT discount code Wendy25 you will get 25% off your shopping !

I hope that you like my card today and you'll enjoy the next cards I share in this series.

Hasta luego ­čĹő 

Enjoy the rest of your day !
