Hooked on Halloween #11

Hooked on 'Halloween'. This week at Hooked on Craft we are having a Halloween theme.
But really! How can I go dark and scary with this super cute little teddy who by the way I have named "Milly" cause she just looks like a Milly dont you think!
Maybe in her dark days - she was MiLLicEnt!!!! (You have to say that with a scary voice to get the effect).
Check out what the other girls at Hooked on Craft have to show you.
Also don't forget to check out the Hooked on Craft On Line store for fabulous flowers, stamps and embellishments.
And keep practicing that scary voice.

I am entering Milly in the following challenges:

Cherry Pip #93

This week at Paper Sundaes we are sponsored by Funky Kits and we are making Bookmarks.
The girls over at Paper Sundaes have created different types for you to see and to be inspired by.
I recently purchased a few images from Sugar Nellie's Sherbet Pip Home Grown range.
(In my world 'a few' = 5 and then again it can sometimes = 8 or even more and very rarely it can = 3. Actually come to think of it - it never = 3).  
I was thrilled to be able to use this little cutie called "Cherry Pip".
I have made a magnetic bookmark which is a bit tricky to photograph cause it looks like there is a big black blob inside my bookmark - but trust me - this little bookmark slips into your pages and stays nice and snug with the help of those magnets.
Doesn't work so well with my Kindle tho' :)

I am entering this cutie into the following challenges:
Partytime Tuesdays #39 Anything Goes
Creative Craft Fancy Edges
Bearly Mine #22 Anything but a card
Crafty Purple Frog #27 Sparkle
One Stop Craft #155 No Sentiments 
Card Makin Mammas #32 Cut it out
The Squirrel and The Fox #4 Hats or Flowers
Dream Valley #19 Anything Goes

Hooked on Spooky #10

Over at Hooked on Craft this week - we challenge you to make "Something Spooky".
The winner this fortnight will receive a $10 gift voucher from Hooked on Craft on line store.

I went through my stash of stamps to find something scary, frightening or spooky and came up with ..... nothing!
I discovered - very quickly - that I don't do 'spooky'.
BUT, I can do 'cute' so this little bear from Hooked on Craft was perfect for me for the challenge. I think that he is way "too cute to spook" and he was really fun to colour in. 
Check out the rest of the design team here, for their spppoooooookkkkkkyyyy creations.

Paper Sundaes #91 Halloween

'Halloween or Fall' is the theme this week over at Paper Sundaes and there is a $15 gift certificate from our sponsor - Simon Says Stamp to be won.
I have been really wanting to try the "distress ink around a circle moon with an owl on a branch and a spider" technique thingy.
You know what I mean.
I decided that this card needed to be plain and simple.
Unfortunately I was under the misguided idea that this also meant quick and easy.
Not so! (Not happy)
But sometimes you just have to go with your instincts - take a chance - risk it all - have a go - run out of time to make another one!
I decided to combine both theme choices this week  ... this is my 'Halloween' card with a spider who looks like he is about to 'fall'. (he he)

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Scrapalicious Black Orange and Purple
Paper Crafting Journey #21 Black White and Orange
Fussy and Fancy Fall or Halloween
Crafts 4 Eternity #41 Orange and Purple
Card Makin Mammas #31 Halloween
One Stop Craft #153 Halloween
Dream Valley #18 Halloween
Cupcake Inspirations #132 Photo inspiration

Just popped over to the Paper Sundaes website and saw all of the amazing creations that the girls have made this week. Ohhhh - they are fabulous! Check them out.
