Ok, I lied! I said I was only going to make 1 Halloween card, but here's my 2nd.
People don't seem to celebrate Halloween much around here, and last year I didn't get a single trick or treater! I had to eat all the sweeties myself!!

I want to thank Mandi for pointing me in the direction of a 'new to me' challenge Keep It Simple
Well, with my blog name I had to join in, didn't I ?   This week their challenge is to add a charm to your project.
I didn't have any Halloween type charms, so I made this little bat. I got this guy from the internet last year, but sorry, I can't remember who made him. I printed him out and layered him onto card. I punched a small hole in him, to add the split ring and then covered him with glossy accents.

Challenges -
Keep It Simple - 'Charming' - Add a charm to your card or project.
A Spoon Full Of Sugar - 'Boo!'
Fab & Funky - 'Things that go "bump" in the night'
Creative Inspirations - 'Spooky!'
Creative Cottage - Halloween

The witch is a digital image from this fabulous Halloween quotes collection here. It's only available for a limited time, so be quick if you want it.
DP is Hot Off the Press, Earth's Pallette.    Pearls were coloured black with a Copic.
Ribbon from my stash.  'BOO' letters cut with Slice, Fa La La Design Card.

Love the clean lines and that image. Love that little bat even more....he's gorgeous (and inedible, which is unusual for this blog! Hurray I leave your blog tonight without the urge to rumage for choklit....having said that, now the thought is in my head, there are seven choklit buttons on my car dashboard that i confiscated off BD earlier when he dropped them on the floor.......!
