Care for a bite?

Hello all!
Hope the sun is shining where you are today. I'm back with a new card for a new day and although it's still summer here (yay!), there's a Halloween feel to my card..........  I am trying to ignore the fact that summer is coming to an end as I'm really not a winter person!  Having been born in Cyprus, I think I was imprinted with the need to feel the warmth of the sun, even if it was only for the first 6 months of my life!  That's my excuse anyway - I just do not like the cold :( 
         
     So, on to the card which is done using a Simply Betty digi called Vampiress Tilly.  I kept it fairly simple again as I find that a whole lot easier and quicker - I don't mind spending time on colouring the digis but I do not enjoy spending hours trying to put the whole card together!  For the cobwebs, I inked through a Tim Holtz mask, the spider is just a black brad and I drew the legs and the sentiments were done using my Dymo labeller -



You have to admit, she's a very cute and sassy vampiress!  I would like to enter this into the challenges at http://jacksonsdigitalexpressions.blogspot.ca/, http://lollipopcrafts.blogspot.com/, http://madformarkerschallenges.blogspot.com/ and http://simonsaysstampandshow.blogspot.com/ .




Thanks for stopping by :)

P.S. I hate the cold, too! That's why we moved to AZ from MN! But, I would far rather live on a tropical island somewhere! The desert gets too hot in the summer! Always somethin', huh? :^)
