halloween Rocker

Papertake Weekly has an All About the base challenge.  I had been wanting to make this before Halloween but  time just  didn't allow me to get to it until today. I want to use it in the Paper take challenge.  Crafty Time Challenges also has a Shaped card challenge.  Cup Cake Challenges has a Black and Orange Stars Challenge as  their  photo inspiration.  Hiding in My Craftroom has an Any Holiday  challenge.

Morning Coffee

Pinspirational Challenges has a  Coffee Challenge  this week.  I do not  drink coffee  so had decided to skip this challenge until I saw the coffee cup trio.  I love these  trio cards.  They  are easy to put together and look really good when they are done.  I snapped the  picture before I added  my sentiment. It says "The  first Cup is on Me!"  We are  going to travel with friends in a  few  days so I will leave it for them to  find with a starbuxs gift card.

Breast Cancer Ribbon

Simple and  girly enough  for all to understand.  This is for the Tuesday Thrown down You've got my Support Challenge this week.  Crafty Gals has a ribbons and flourish challenge also.  In the Pink always has  pink  challenge.  3  Girl jam has an Anything Goes/ribbon Challenge.


Today was a white on white kind of day  for me.  I just love this little ghost. He's just too cute.  I used a new embossing  folder I just bought.  This  should work in the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge this week. Lawnscaping Challenges also has a Too Cute To Spook  Challenge.  Addicted to CAS has a Spooky Challenge.

Happy Halloween

Today I dug out my  pumpkin shaped Spellbinder and a  Happy Halloween embossing folder that I just  purchased.  I used both with my  Cuddlebug to make this cute card for the Cuddlebug Mania  Challenge this month.  Through the Purple Haze also has a Halloween Challenge I've over looked.  Pile It on has a Cute Or Spooky Challenge.  This one could go ether way!  Di's Digital Design has a Pumkin challenge.

Silhouette Kids

I needed one more  quick card for today. I've had these kids cut out for a few days and just hadn't used them yet.  I decided they were so cute I  didn't need much to go with them.  I did  use glitter on the letters to give it a more festive look. This  card is for the Sparkle and Sprinkle Anything Goes with Glitter. Paper Shelter has a trick or treat challenge.  Dies R Us has a Ghoul Friends Challenge.  613 Avenue Create has an Anything Goes Challenge.  Connie Can Crop had a Going Batty Challenge.

Ghost and pumpkins

Both the image and the sketch can be found at From the Heart Stamps. This sketch is one of their I {heart} sketches.  I always enjoy  doing their  sketches and it earns me a dollar credit to their  store to get more images.  Creative  Card Crew has a ribbon challenge.  Fan-tastic Tuesday has an Anything goes with Black and Orange.  Crafty Calendar Challenges has a  Halloween challenge.  Your Next Stamp has a  color challenge with a  sketch.  I chose to do the  colors rather than the sketch this time.

Pink Teddies

This  card  is way too Pink for me!   It  isn't entirely the way I Envisioned it but it sorta maybe works. Crafty Sentiments has a  Pink Challenge. I guess this  will work even if I didn't include a sentiment.  I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning  Sketches. I cut my  patches too small and that threw the whole thing off for me  but my stubborn self  says "oh no  you will not waste that  paper."   So I did! As You Like It Challenges has a Brights or Pastels Challenge.  I do a lot of both but I  do prefer Brights over Pastels. Brights are some  happier and more encouraging to me.  Give a Crafter a  Cookie Challenges has a  Photo inspiration challenge with a lot of pink!

Ghost Pins

I was pretty determined to get these  done today.  I actually have  3 different sets I want to do for Halloween.  Maybe tomorrow I might get  the other two sets done.  I think these  are really  cute to wear to work or just anywhere.  These  should work nicely in  the Crafty Sentiments Halloween Decorations Challenge.  613 Avenue Create has an Anything Goes Challenge.  I  cut these  out of a glittery shimmery paper to give thema  glowing effect but its  real hard to see in the picture.  Glitter and Sparkle has a Halloween Challenge.  Clear It Outs challenge is White and one other color. Well I  guess Black is my other color.

Edward's Pumpkins

This image is from BugaBoo.  Edward is one of  my favorite characters from their line.  I used him for the Stella Says Sketch Challenge.  I'm also hoping he's  old enough to be considered and Oldie but a goodie  because I want to use him in that challenge as well.  Through the  Craftroom Door has an Anything Goes Challenge.  Fantastic Tuesday has an Anything Goes with an Autumn Colors Twist.

Batty Girl

Your Next Stamp has a  Color and Sketch  challenge.  This sketch was pretty easy to work with and seemed to fit this cute  batty Gal.  Pile It on has a  Funky or Freaky challenge.  I'm thinking this could go either way since it's a  bit odd  to see sucha  sweet girl dressed as a Bat.
