Mrs Wonka Does The Triple..........

Well I have really gone for it today.......I have made 2 cards which cover 3 challenges. Both of the cards are for the Penny Black Challenge, they are looking for a new DT member and as Penny Black stamps are my fave then I had to have a double bash at it! (I am under no illusion that I will bag the place but you have to be in it to win it!) The first card is for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge we had to use this sketch for inspiration: I was really excited because I got to use my new release Doodlebug Halloween papers.......

I have used my "Dressed to Scare" image that was lovingly stamped for me by Treacle.... and my yummy glitter stripe & argyle Halloween paper from Doodlebug. The big spider is a really old Halloween embellishment made by Paperbliss that I have had in my stash for 567 years and the flowers are all Primas secured with a black sugarcoated brad. The spiders and the webs are from the coolest Halloween peel offs ever! I think they are by Woodware. Finally the greeting was created using Doodlebug & American Crafts rub on letters.

The next card is for the 2 Sketches 4 You challenge blog, it was to do a Halloween card following this sketch for inspiration:I have gone for a more contemporary card this time using my new KI Memories Halloween papers. (I must apologise for the pic, the light was so bad this afternoon.)

I know I have said this before but I really wish that my camera had a glitter function as you can't see the glitter on this "Witchy Mouse" image at all! I have added a QK scroll and scallop edge (using my SU scallop border punch) and wide stitched ribbon to create this far more simple card.

Finally I hope you all have a Spookytastic Halloween tomorrow and thanks for stopping by my blog.
