Wanna Scare?

Halloween…Now I am not good with scaring things but I have been known to go Trick or Treating 😉 Well any excuse to get big bags of sweeties I say!

The challenge this week over at the Cupcake Craft Challenges blog is a recipe:

3 Buttons, 2 Papers, 1 Ribbon

And *Shock*Horror* I’ve got it right! (I usually miss something out on recipe challenges – Tee Hee!)

The prize is a fabulous £10 to spend over at Quixotic Paperie – Wahoo! (Mmm – I wonder if I change my name I could sneak my entry in?)

So some details for the card! The paper is from the My Mind’s Eye Boo To You paper stack and the cute Witchy Owl, spider, web and broom are all from the Hero Arts Owl-Oween Stamp Set. I’ve used my Prismacolor pencils to colour the Owl in.

But you might see a touch of Shimmerz Paints Coal on the hat and clock! Oh, that is so one of my fav Shimmerz colours!


A little bit of sewing, add some buttons, some distressed ribbon and a little bat and hey-presto a scary card 🙂

Elaine has been very busy loading some new products into the shop so here are a couple of teasers from the Halloween section:


And what a fab stamp from Alota! Also whilst you are there check out the very cute oven stamp – would look yummy with the new season Magnolias… 🙂

Have a Scare-free Friday
