Hi there everyone in blogland - this should have been posted on Saturday so I must apologise to our leader - Sue J (Ollie's Mam) - I have to 'compute' when I don't have me new lenses in (the left one is blurred and the right one is only slightly better so I'm struggling loads).  Fortunately I go back tomorrow (Tuesday) having been wearing them about 6 days - I wasn't allowed to go swimming in them, according to the optician, though as everyone should know by now I never put me head under water and always keep me hair dry!  lol!

Anyway - stop waffling for a second - this is my card for the Crafty Calendar Challenge and we want to see Halloween cards or Halloween colours on your cards.   We've been sponsored this month by All Dressed Up and I just love this image I was able to use from Wendy.  There's a wonderful prize for the winner of our challenge and ...... when we reach 1000 followers we have a really special prize on offer for our 'random' winner!

By the way, you may wonder why I have pumpkins on me sparkly web - the answer's simple - I can't put eight legged beasties on there 'cos I would be sick!  Oooh there was one in the bedroom the other night and not only could I see the colour of its eyes, I could tell what size Doc Martins he was wearing (size 10!).  Thankfully my Knight in Shining Armour came to my rescue - after hearing a very very loud high pitched screeching plus heaving, he said (duh!) "Is something wrong" - didn't take him long to realise that my gibberish meant "HELP"!!!  Bless him, at least he got rid of it!
