Good morning everyone - I'm here with a (just past) mid-month post for TTPH.   Our theme this time is Halloween/Magical.  So, if you aren't into Halloween you can make a 'Magical' card for our challenge.  I made a card for 'All Hallows' Eve' with this wonderful Glamzombie digi from The East Wind.  They are our sponsor for this challenge and are offering the lucky winner some digis.

First of all I looked up the meaning of All Hallows' Eve on the internet and it states that "It initiates the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows)martyrs,and all the faithful departed believers.  I have some gorgeous papers from Tim Holtz and amongst them I found this grey striped one which complimented her skirt and there was also a page full of these little vintage pictures.  They really are old pics and I felt they represented remembering the departed.  Of course being Halloween I had to add a couple of cobwebs and a bat!

I hope you can enter our challenge this month - remember if you aren't into Halloween you can make a 'Magical' card so there's lots of scope on this one.  I love those colours together so what about a magical card in orange purple and black - oooh yummy!

Thank you for popping by, I hope you are all well - I know it's the time of year for the 'flu so avoid those germs!!

Big hugs to you all

Love  Sue xxx
