Halloween 17!

Good afternoon on a very changeable Autumn day. Bit like my mood - very up and down - I have enjoyed making this card and it has taken my mind off things.
I have used the sketch at A Spoon Full of Sugar which is shown below, good one Debbie.

I have finally got round to using some images I bought from Bee Crafty here called, strangely enough, "Halloween set". I coloured them using my watercolour crayons.

The papers and sentiment are from a freebie at The Creative Cottage called Spooktacular - it is still available until the end of October - so don't hang about!! The other paper I have used is one from Summer Driggs and is called Fangs for the Memories.
 Now her we go, I think I have managed 17 challenges - not so difficult as you may think as over half are Halloween themed.

Everbody Art - Halloween,

Digital Tuesday - Things with wings ( I have a bat),

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Things that go bump in the night,

Allsorts Challenge - Furry Friend (there is a cat and the bat and monster look furry),

Crafty Creations - All Hallows Eve,

Cats Corner - Halloween and a cat,

Kaboodle Doodle Challenge - Spooky,

Stampin' for the weekend - A Haunting Good Time,

Rainbow Lady's Challenge - Halloween,

Penny's Challenge - Halloween,

My Time To Craft - Halloween colours,

Tuesday Taggers - Things that go bump in the night,

The Corrosive Challenge - Spooky Times,

Pile it on - Ready for Halloween,

ABC Challenge - F is for flying (I have a flying bat)

Creative Inspirations - Halloween,

So add on the sketch challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar and you have 17, phew.

Please say what you think as I really want to know. Have a great day.

Way to go girl - beat me!!!
This is a fab card and I agree the sketch at A Spoonful of Sugar is a good one this week.
I don't think I will be able to top 17 this week as I have quite a bit on with one thing and another. Great card - love it!!

Brilliant!Love your makes with these lovely papers. Shame, I've been trying all week to download them but it says it'll take twice as long than a movie to down load just one! and after half an hour I get the 'this file is corrupt' pop up and then it stops! But I will keep trying!
