Halloween challenge

There's some spooky goings on happening at
It's the Halloween Challenge

Do you dare to have a go..... there are prizes  for the winners 

Ive used the image More for my contribution

and I thought ooooh chocolate wrappers ideal for that Halloween treat
I used a large Galaxy bar for my template (well the little bars are not enough) and removed the wrapper and measured it to get the correct sizes
If you want the sizes they are :
width 15cm, length 21cm then scored at4cm and 7.5cm (of longer side)

I stamped bats,webs and spiders from a PTI set and a Waltzing Mouse set onto the sheet and distressed the edges, a bit of dst and it was back around the chocolate
awaiting the topper
I coloured the image a little with copics and distress the edges and mounted onto orange and black card
The only thing is now I don't think this one will last til Oct 31st somehow
My kids and hubby have been eying up the slab
while its been waiting to be photographed lol

Check out what the other DT members have been doing and hop over to
for  more details of the challenge

Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge 95

I have been honoured with being a Guest designer for this week theme
Woohoo Im so excited
Thank you
Sankari and Brooke

This challenge was a difficult one for me as the movie High Noon is not one
I'd seen all the way through.
So I called on Hubby's expertise,he's a bit of a western movie buff and filled me in on the plot
and after some random googling I found an extract to watch.

Well the movie is in black and white so colour scheme sorted.He's a sheriff so a star is needed,
High Noon a clock is needed and its a Shoot out so some guns are needed.
So with all my elements chosen I set to work,distressing, stamping and printing out my sentiment
The guns and sentiment are fonts as I don't posses any gun stamps
(must find some for future reference)
The clock and clockwork workings are SU stamps as is the background.

Hope you will join in with the challenge you could have loads of fun.

Catch ya Later

Dont lose your head

I nearly did with this challenge over at
Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge
The theme is to be inspired by :
Sleepy Hollow and to use a Halloween tree

I had to recap on the movie he he
Well ....Johnny Depp(swoon) does it every time lol.
I was amazed at the amount of blood that tree spilled,so I went with drippy blood
and spooky trees from the wood
then added a bit of lace for hubby's benefit as he likes the ladies
Christina Ricci and Miranda Richardson.
I tried to keep it quite dark as the film is very Tim Burton ,he just does dark and quirky to a tee.

oooh did you see.... did you see....
I was honoured with the Audrey award woohoo for my Annie card last week and have been asked to be Guest designer on the next challenge
So come back soon and see what I created for the challenge

Catch ya later

I couldn't resist this image of the mummy
