Papertake Weekly...Black & White Plus 1

Morning all, we lost our internet connection last night and according to Virigin Media it was the drivers on my PC that were causing the problem, I argued that I didn't think it was and hey presto the internet is back this morning....why is it that they always argue its not their fault lol!

Today's card is for this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge with an added piece of news to go with it! I was bowled over to receive an email from the girls at PTW last week asking me if I would like to join their DT and would I like to think about it.....are they mad?....what's to think about lol! There are three other new DT members and you can see all the exciting news over at the PTW blog! So here is my first DT card for PTW and this week the theme is BLACK & WHITE + 1 and my plus one colour is red! PTW are sponsored this week by Simon Says Stamp and one lucky winner will get to spend $25 on their website including free shipping!

I chose the gorgeous papers from Summertime Designs...she has just released this kit (for free) and its called 'Fangs 4 The Memories' it's chocca with design papers and some fab elements to go with it! The cute image is a digi download from the LilyPad...designed by Kate Hadfield and the set of images are called 'Trick or Treat' its a pre-coloured image but I went over it with my PM's just to sharpen up the colours! The bat and the spider were cut on my Cricut and the little pearls are from my craft stash!
