Spooktacular at By The Cute and Girly.

If you are looking for my Fred She Said blog hop post, it is below this one :)

I am a day late with this post (what new! lol) and I have to apologise to Lisa who set the challenge at By The Cute and Girly this month, because I only got 1 card made for the challenge because me and the kids have been ill this last week, but I hope to get something else made and will add it later.

So the challenge is Spooky and we have our usual fab sponsors this month and 2 new guest designers who have made some fab samples for us, along with the rest of the fab design team who always have loads of samples to inspire you.

I have to admit that although I don't send Halloween cards because nobody here does, I love Halloween and love to make Halloween cards and goodies, so this challenge was great, just wish I had more time last month to get everythign made in time!

Anyway here's the card i did manage to make.

 I did write down where the digis came from, but I have lost the piece of paper as I made it a few weeks ago, so I am afraid I don't know who makes them, but I think they are all from different places.... I know that's not a lot of help lol, so if anyone knows where I go them from, please let me know.
I coloured the pumpkin with Promarkers and on the Mummy, I just used grey Promarkers for shadows and left the rest white.
Thr stripey paper and the little piece of green are from last years Bo Bunny collection and I have no idea about the black spotty one because I got it from a friend (thanks again hun).
I distressed all the edges then went round them all with black ink, which is something I have never done before, I have used loads of different coloured ink to distress with but never black, but I like the look of the black on this kind of card, so think I might try it again.

Right I am away to try get something else made for the challenge! Hope you will join us this month at By the Cute and Girly

Lora - feel better! Loving the cute Halloween card - your comment reminds me about CrazyKims comments on Halloween. She loves it too but they do not celebrate it in NZ.
