Sweet Stampin' - Halloween

I'm a bit late posting this - I did a promarker demo today, so I've been busy busy busy preparing for it... hopefully normal blogging activities can now resume!

Our new challenge at Sweet Stampin' is 'Halloween'... Now I must admit I don't really 'do' Halloween, and I wouldn't really choose to make anything for it, but I know lots of you do, so hopefully this will be an easy one!  This very simple little card will probably get popped in one of the boys' lunch boxes... hmm, that means I have to make another one doesn't it?!  We're sponsored by Letraset who have a fab pack of pens for our lucky winner, and Joanna Sheen is our monthly sponsor with a £10 voucher prize.


Items Used
12cm square card blank - Craftwork Cards
Digi stamps - Trick or Treat Mummy - Halloween Characters set - DigiStamp Boutique
Spooky Cat - this month's freebie - DigiStamp Boutique
Colouring - promarkers & prisma pencils
Memory Box Party Lanterns die - MCH
MeiFlower black gems - MCH

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Cards For Men - orange & black
Simon Says Stamp - eerie inspiration
Papertake Weekly - fright night
Sassy Cheryl's - orange & black
Divas By Design - something spooky
Crafty Catz - Halloween

I had a great time demoing, but I'm soooo tired now - looking forward to a takeaway and an alcoholic beverage or two!  Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Nah, I'm not a Halloween person either. Your card is lovely though. It would make a great little decoration if you popped it in a frame and put it at the door for the "trick or treaters" to see when they arrive! I love the cat's face!

Hand going up here - I'm another one who doesn't 'do' Halloween, though I'm being forced into it by SWMbO! She's getting really excited about the whole business.
