Moving Along With The Times 'In The Dark' Challenge

Good morning all, how are you all today? well I hope and if not please get better soon.

We took ourselves off on Sunday to visit our little grandson and wow how he has grown in just a couple of weeks, he is really getting his own little character now. He had his 6 week check last week and his hearing is now within normal range and they believe the initial problem was due to the amount of time he was stuck underwater during his birth and got all his airways and such blocked. His little face as you can see is now all nice and pink no bruising or signs of distress. 

Here is just one of the photo's I took!

Whilst we were there one of my son's step children was not happy because her mum and my son wont allow her to go trick or treating and this is what gave me the idea for my card today. I have made three of these, one for each of the children all slightly different to send to them in a parcel with a gift box and tag so they can have their own Halloween trick or treat night at home. I will show you the other items soon.

So this week at Moving Along With The Times Lisa set us the challenge of 'In The Dark' so that means either dark colours or things that come out in the dark!

I made coffin cards that open to reveal a great Bugaboo image, talking of Bugaboo they are our sponsor this week and gave us all the really great images to use plus a voucher for one of you to win. 
I cut the coffin, the lettering and the layers on my cameo. 
 I also printed my image and then cut that out on the cameo too, I love this feature as I hate hand cutting images.
The sticker on the left says 'Trick or Treat'.
