A rare Sunday post!!

I bet you are all wondering what is going on – why am I posting on a Sunday!!  I know its a very rare occurrence these days but as I have the week off next week I can afford to be a little more relaxed this weekend – which means more crafting for me *yay*.  I did say to myself last week that I wasn’t going to make any more halloween cards but my last order came from elzybells (so sad that it’s closed now) and I just had to ink up my new stamp.  Here is my card:

Isn’t she just so cute?  However I have spent the most part of the afternoon looking for a suitable sentiment.  I cannot believe that I don’t have a simple “happy halloween” stamp (wishing I had got one from elzybells now).  Luckily after searching through what seemed like most of my stash I stumbled upon these wooden “scrabble” tiles which actually work quite well I think.  I was aiming for a CAS (clean and simple) style card and didn’t want to overload my card too much with embellishments – do you think I succeeded.  It’s just when I make these sorts of cards I always feel they don’t look quite finished. 

I can enter my card into the following challenges:

Corrosive challenge – halloween (or orange and black colour scheme)

OSAAT challenge – any celebration

Order of the opus gluei challenge – wood (my tiles are wood)

The crazy challenge – halloween

The pink elephant challenge – brown and orange

Stamps & fun = creativity challenge – halloween or autumn

Creative craft challenge – trick or treat

Crafts and me challenge – halloween

Creative belli challenge – pumpkins and/or sketch

Creative cottage challenge – halloween

Let’s craft and create challenge – halloween

Cute card Thursday challenge – sketch

Digi doodle challenge – keep it simple

Hanna & friends challenge – halloween

Paper cutz challenge – halloween using stars, circles, diamonds or crescents (my paper has circles on it)

Stamp magic challenge – sewing (mine is faux using a white gel pen)

Stampin’ for the weekend challenge – celebrate the time of year (halloween)

Totally papercrafts challenge – stick a number on it (there are numbers on the letter tiles)

2 sisters challenge – anything goes

Crazy 4 challenges challenge – halloween

Crafty purple frog challenge – anything goes

I am definitely saying that this is my last halloween card for this year (and besides I need to get a wiggle on with my Christmas cards).  I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far.  I will be back tomorrow with my DT cards for stamp with fun challenge and cupcake craft challenge so please pop back then if you can.  Thanks for stopping by today.
