Crafty Calendar Challenge - 7 October 2011

Can I let you into a secret?  I should be putting my thinking cap on for a few commissioned cards.  I have all the papers printed off but just need to think about how to actually make them before starting to stick but decided it best to leave them to the week-end and instead have had a play at some Halloween cards over the last few days.  Think it must be the big kid in me.  I only wish I lived in America to see what they do for Halloween.  Over here in the UK it isn't celebrated as much.  We sometimes have people come to the door so we'll get sweets in for them and the cards I make I give away to the children.
Over at the Crafty Calendar Challenge Blog the topic is "spooky" - well if she isn't spooky what is????  For my card I have used freebie papers from Bearlymine and also Summertime Designs and stuck with the colour scheme of orange, black and purple.  The image I have decoupaged up and was a freebie I think from Andy Carolan.  Cor look at those teeth.  I have finished the card off with a sentiment off the computer and some buttons.
