Too Cute 2 Spook

Hi Bloggers,

 Sorry for not being around, the last few weeks have been awful for me, Sadly i miscarried 4 weeks ago, I didnt know i was pregnant but it was still very hard, Then on the 16th my very Dear Nanna died at the age of 93, She was a huge strength in our family so it had such a tremendous impact on all of us, She will be sadly missed but will live on in us all...
This post was hard for me to write as i dont tend to share problems as i think people dont come online to hear others woes but i felt i owed my Fabulous followers an explanation as to why i havent been around, I would like to thank everyone who sent cards and best wishes to my family, i am very proud to have such amazing friends...

Anyway, over at Scrapbook Stamp Society we have a fantastic hop going on, "Too Cute 2 Spook"
The fab Sherri and Heather have brought out the most gorgeous new digi's that will blow ur socks off, i want them all they are truly beautiful, I decided to use Vampire Susie for my card.
Why not nip by the store and check out the new arrivals, You dont want too miss out on these..

So heres my card...
