Halloween time with Penny's challenges

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

It's Wednesday so you know what that means, right? Yep, it's time for another challenge at Penny's challenges. This week, the challenge is to make something Halloween. Pile it On and One Stop Craft Challenge also want to see something Halloween this week. The challenge at Whimsy Stamps is to use embossing. Lastly, Crafty Calendar wants to see something autumn related.

***Supplies***
Patterned Paper: CTMH Enchanted
Stamps: CTMH Month Blocks
Other: Marvy scallop punch, Cuttlebug, CTMH brads, prisma glitter


If you look real close, you might be able to see the glitter on my pumpkins. And I super love the look of the swirl embossing folder with this card. It just seems to go with the pumpkins. Who knows though? Maybe I'm imagining that it looks good? Anyway, my plan, and I use the term plan loosely, LOL, is to make up a couple more of these cards and send them to my nieces and nephews for Halloween. Hopefully my "plan" works out like I want it to.
I was also asked by Jeanne about the card I posted on Monday with all the challenges. Her question was, do I make the card and then hunt down any applicable challenges or do I already know the challenges I want to incorporate into my card. My answer is both. For Monday's card, I only had the sketch and color challenge in mind when I made the card. After the card was made, I was blurfing and came across all the other challenges. How fun is that?
Make sure and pop over at Penny's challenges to see what the other fabulous DT ladies have created for you. And then we'd love to have you join us this week.
