Aud Sentiments Challenge #12 Halloween Sentiment.


Do you know what - it's been like pulling teeth trying to get this post sorted out - blogger is playing up big time and I am getting just a tad frustrated.

Anyhooo onto the reason I'm here!!!! - it appears not many of you were "cheery" over the last fortnight so we are hoping that a Halloween sentiment will get your creative juices flowing. Oh and you could do the optional extra of making a treat bag or box to go with it. Check out who won at the Aud Sentiments Challenge blog.


Our sponsor this fortnight is The Cutting Cafe.

.........................and the winner will receive three sets of their choice - how cool is that!

Here is the card I made...................




........................and a little treat box too. The template is from The Cutting Cafe as is the sentiment on the top of the box and on my card plus the Boo sentiment on the card.



I have a lot of fun making Halloween cards - spooky really!!! The Haunted House has been embossed from core'dinations card which has been sanded and torn as are the circles, from the "Boo to you" embossing folder and then using Tim Holtz dostress ink - Black Soot.
I made the paper on the right with the houses on using a Daisytrail kit called Spooktacular.
Please check out my team mates creations for some fantastic inspiration - their links are in my sidebar.
I am also entering the following challenges:-

Sentimental Sundays - Dimension,

The Crazy Challenge - No buttons or ribbon,

Simon Says Stamp and Show - Sanded and distressed, and

One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes.

Ingredients


Design papers - Summer Driggs Happy Halloween kit.
Tools:- Cuttlebug embossing folders Haunted House and Boo To You, Tim Holtz Distress tool and Distress Ink - Black Soot. Sandpaper.
Sentiments:- The Cutting Cafe and Summer Driggs Happy Halloween kit
Box Template:-The Cutting Cafe. Tag made using a kit from Gunhilde at Cats III with a Cutting Cafe sentiment.

Thank you for your visit.

Hugs
