Digital Tuesday and By the Cute and Girly DT cards

Another Digital Tuesday Challenge and the theme our hostess Amy has picked this week is Boo! - Halloween! I love making Halloween cards but unfortunately where I live nobody sends Halloween cards so I have no use for them. I love Halloween and like getting the kids all dressed up in their cute little outfits and taking them trick or treating but we don't really take them around our neighbourhood because the neighbours are all grumpy and most of them don't even answer the door to the kids. All the kids in our neighbourhood come to my door because I always have loads of treats and I have a bit of fun with them. That's what it's all about right? I think I might make up some treat bags to give the kids who visit but I'd better get my bum in gear because I will need a lot!
On to the card then.
This photo as usual is pants and doesn't do my card justice but never mind. The papers I have used look really light here but in real life they are darker and look more black than grey.
The embossed paper at the top is out of a handmade paper pack and I have some of it in my blog candy give away. The dp is from Aries Crafts.
My cute image is "Emma The Cat" from Fred She Said (click on link and it will take you to all Tracey's Emma images, this one is at the bottom of the page). I just had to use this image after Rhianna getting her teeth out because it just reminds me of her lol.
the flowers I have used are a mix, I have used a Prima, some faux suede flowers which I also have in my blog candy and one of Rhianna's flowers that she got from Lorraine for her birthday. Sorry Lorraine, I just had to pinch one! I did give her some of mine in exchange for it though because she wasn't going to give me it lol. The purple buttons are papermania and the orange one was from stef (thanks hunni mwah). Finally ribbon is by Craft Works.

I also have another DT card to show that I made for By The Cute And Girly for this months "Autumn Glory" challenge.

The image is Sugar Nellie and was a rak from Jane. Paper is Basic Grey and the border is some handmade paper with the leaves in it. Flowers are Primas. Button and lace from my stash.
If you would like to join in with the challenge, you still have loads of time because it doesn't close till the end of the month. So come on girls lets see what you can do! Remember you can enter with a card, lay out, any other papercrafts, cross stitch, knitting, even a food dish as long as it fit's in with our Autumn theme, you can make anything you like, and you can enter as much times as you like with a different craft. If you haven't been over to check out the challenge yet, you just have to go see the DT's samples, there is loads of them and loads of different crafts too and if that's not enough to tempt you, we have 3 different prizes for 3 lucky people to win and they all are great prizes!
So what you waiting for? get your bum over there now!!
Actually before you go, you could scroll down to see my card for the Sugar Bowl that I made at about 2am this morning lol.

oh boy Lori, you have been so busy. love the cards that you have made and the sugar bowl one... 2am!!!
you asked me about E000 and if there was a reason for me not using it in recent skin tones...nah no reason i just swap and change me mind what colours i like to use...haha..
i am using E00, E01, R20 and E11 for skin tones now... I use them in the order i have wrote them down.. you don't have to use the Ell but i just like to use a little to give the shadows a bit of depth... i use the R20 for the cheeks too. hope this helps sweetie.xx
