We're getting all kinda 'spooky' at OSAAT!!!!

Oh firstly I just want to say, I am sooooooooo sorry I have neglected all my blogging buddies this last week, today is the first time since Tueday I have got out of bed (& I hated it!!) I had gastric flu, which I have never had before, well I've never had flu before & haven't had a cold for years...its just typical it only happened because I go into hospital on Thursday for major surgery, well I hope I do. If this cough doesn't go then I won't be arghhhhh!!!!!
Hopefuly be a bit more back to normal this week, well for a few days anyways!
I'm just thankful I had this card made weeks ago for todays challenge at OSAAT, because I've got 3 crafty parcels sitting on my craft table that I just haven't bothered with, I think its because I'm so weak having not eaten properly since last Tuesday!!!

Yeah I know its only the beginning of October, but we are getting
ready for Halloween early over at OSAAT!!!
There are lots of pictures of this card, because I just love it!!!

Look at the spiders googly eyes!!!

I just love this image she is such a classy witch....

After I had distressed my insert, I asked Nige to draw me a spiders web in the corner. Well this is what he did for me...I think its fab!
