A Fun Filled Halloween!

Happy Tuesday! It is another warm and beautiful Tuesday here in New England. No sign of Fall yet though the they say by the weekend it will feel like Fall finally. I think I am glad because with running the AC at home to compensate for the heat everywhere else I am now battling one whopper of a head cold, way too early for it I think. Oh well what can you do but let it run it's course.

Being Tuesday it is time for another great challenge over at
                                       Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.
This week our challenge is all about the girls. So create a card or project with "It's A Girl Thing" as the theme. The ladies this week went all out on their creations to inspire you, so be sure to check them out. We also have a fabulous sponsor this week The Digi Garden. Their cute digis are so much fun to work with. I chose Maise as the cutie for my card. Be sure to stop by and check out all their other cuties in their store!

One more shout out, my sister Peggy and I have been panicking over the loss of some of our favorite colors of SU CS being retired and never to be seen again. We were especially sick over Lavender Lace and Lovely Lilac. On the hunt to find new purples that we would love we found  Mark's Finest Papers purples and yeah we love them!!!! As well as some other great colors like the aqua that I also used on this card. It matches perfectly with the free Halloween DP the Donna at Bearly Mine Designs is giving away right now. So if you miss the perfect purples like I did check them out!
