Trick or Treat

Happy Halloween! Mum has been busy growing pumpkins in the garden this year for the kids. I had a try but had no success. This year I had to do another of my pumpkins carvings. As I had Blue at home this year for halloween (he's a massive transformer fan), I decided to make an autobots carving as well as a haunted castle. Hope you like. Michelle

Last Halloween Card For This Year - Boo Hooooooo

Whoop woooo! We finally managed to get some Take That tickets - well my friend did after trying for about 10hrs!!! So I'm not going to brag on about but I sure am excited. So as my title says this is the last of my Halloween cards this year, and only because I found this stamp stuffed at the back of my 'stamps drawer unit' and completely forgot all about it, and I've not even used it before.
I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Paper Play Challenge - A Haunting We Will Go
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Halloween Colour Challenge
2 Sisters Challenge - Anything Goes
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Halloween or Purple/Black/Orange/Green
I've kept it simple and coloured the image with Promarkers and decorated with a few simple embellishments. Happy Halloween my sweeties!! Ha ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaa.....

Cheeky Monkey

I recently bought a set of clears stamps which are called lil Monkey and how cute are they. So here is one of the first of the images from the set which I shall be entering into two challenges and they are:

Moving Along With The Times - Card for a Child

A Matching Pair

At Charisma Cardz Challenge this week is - Match Master so I've chosen to enter matching note pad and a sticky note holder.

Treat or Treat - It's Soon To Be Halloween

Well I completed my card tonight for a challenge which I couldn't find again and when I finally did it was closed! Aaarrgghhh but nevertheless I did still have a couple of others in mind and they are:
Peartree Designs - Halloween
Raise The Bar - Orange, Black & Purple
I've used 'Witchybella' which has been coloured with Promarkers, used the edge of my ink pad to make the cobwebs and added glossy accents to the pumpkin which looks like it has an air bubble in it but it's just the reflection of my lamp. Hope you like it. Jeanette

Christmas Card With A Difference

Over at SSDS Challenge this week is Xmas with no red or green so I chose blue and at Papertake Weekly the challenge is Sparkly and Bright.
The image has been coloured with Promarkers and added some glitz to the hat, edge of coat and the snow flakes. Hope you like it.

Christmas Stamping All Year Long Challenge

Don't you just love this PB image - it's called Xmas Troupe. As soon as I saw the photo to inspire you at CSAYL I immediately thought of this stamp. I think it's all the colours and the Christmas tree.

Hope you like it. Jeanette

Cup Cake Challenge

I bought this stamp from a lovely lady that I've got to know at the Canford Cliffs Craft Fair. It is so cute. From LOTV he fits in just right for the Cup Cake Challenge - Boys and Their Toys. I've used Promarkers to colour but not happy with the colour of the skin, too orange looking for my liking. Hope you like it. Jeanette

It's A Happy Haunting & Lots Of Challenges

I love this Penny Black image called 3 Headed Monster. I can just see Lucas my grandson doing something like this. My very own little monster! It's a simple image which I coloured very slightly with pencils and on the edges I used my ink pad the make it look like cobwebs. Isn't the paper fab, its from My Minds Eye and called 'Creepy Crawlers'. I hate spiders but they do make them look sweet and cheeky. I've used glossy accents on all the eyes. So I'm going to enter is card into several challenges that I found this week, and they are:
Pear Tree Challenge - Free For All
My Time To Craft - Ghosties, Ghoulies and Long Legged Beasts
Bee Crafty - Halloween
Crafts & Me - Halloween
Creative Inspirations - Halloween/Fall
Creative Craft Challenges - Trick or Treat
Polka Doodles - Something Spooky
Creative Cottage - Halloween
Stamp With Fun - Halloween

I'm Back!!

Well yes it has been sometime since I last posted but there have been some trauma's going on and I needed to deal with those first. So at the moment I'm in a place of 'calm before the storm' so I thought I'd try and enter some of my favorite blog challenges and hopefully will not be away too long next time. So here is the first.

I'm entering this card into cow girls sunday stampen challenge which the theme is girly and pearls.
I do not know who or what the image is called as I bought it last year from ebay and this is the first time I've used it. Background paper from DCWV Rose-Tinted Christmas.
