World Card Making Day

Yay,it's the weekend! We are having a mini heatwave in the UK,so it's another gloriously sunny day here. We will probably have snow in a couple of weeks!

Just want to say a big 'hello' to all my  followers, new and old. Isn't blogland amazing? Thank you my friends for all your lovely comments.

I am off to rebuild part of my front steps and point the garden wall this afternoon when my labourer (hubby) gets back from hockey. So after watching the World Cup rugby first thing I decided to make a card for World Card Making Day.

I had a couple of challenges in mind(surprise!) when I made this card.....

Owl cut at 3.5" from Wildcard
Witches hat and layers cut at 3" from Happy Hauntings
Sentiment - Mixed Holiday Sentiments from My Creative Time
DP twilight Collection from Pink Paislee
Tim Holtz vintage paper distress ink
White chalk ink
Black enamel accents
3D foam pads

All edges inked  and owl's feathers doodled and curled for dimension.
Witches hat attached with 3d foam.

Challenges I am entering this card into....

Whimsical Wednesdays - Anything goes
Cardz TV - Hootie Halloween
Cricut Blog - World Card Making Day

Over at My Craft Spot , Kimberly is having a design team call. I decided I would enter this card to try for a place. Hit the link to find out more details if you are interested too. It's a great blog and you will find lots of inspirational projects there.

I love how this turned out. Last year we had a huge Halloween party and I crafted myself out.Lol!!
I ordered Happy Hauntings from the US and it arrived the day after the party,so this is the first time I've used it!!

I hope you have a terrific weekend.
