There is a new range on the block.

And I would like to say "Welcome to 31 Spook Street" . And the residents of this street are The Strange Family. I am soooo super excited and lucky to have had a sneaky play, and teased you all with a sneaky peek, with this spooktacular new range from Sarah Hurley.
I had a play with the Digi Kit to make this card, and a couple of the stamp sets are winging their way to me.  As soon as I saw them, I knew I had to have them, especially when I saw the really cute cat, owl and ghosts wooooooo. Though best of all is this little chap that I have coloured as he is called "Malcolm Strange" and I adore him, nothing to do with the fact my hubby is called Malcolm ;-) The digis in the set are coloured or black and white, so ideal if you want to make a quick card, or like me want to create a scene with one or more of the characters. I popped Poe the Owl and Muffin the Cat in, just so Malcolm wasn't alone.  You may have noticed the awesome skulls and bones on the background paper, that is also from the set and is featured in different colours, and they all work perfectly together.
