Challenge #135 - "Halloween" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Everyone, well its only a day away from Halloween and we decided we would again have this as this weeks theme so I do hope that you are not all Halloweened out just yet and to add to it I have actually created two cards for you to see. I stupidly made one then made another later thinking that I had not done so, well now you will decide which one you like the best or at least enjoy them both.
As always our sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30.

But as always we expect you to use on of their products on your card, but even if you dont you will still be eligable to 3 digi images of your own choice, but if your quick you can still get hold of one of their Halloween images at a reduced prize as they have a sale on at the moment and you will find them here, so do go and visit their website and see for yourself what stunning images they have on offer and treat yourself while you can at a brilliant price.
And now to show you what I have been upto, as I said I have two cards to show you, I do hope you like them.

This is the "Halloween Spirit" and you will find her here

And this is "Incantation" and you will find her here

For the papers I used for the top card "Happy Holigans" from Nitwits and I also used Nestabilitie Pumpkin Die for the mounts and Die-namics Pumpkin dies and stamps for the die cuts, I also used a Martha Stewart pumpkin border punch on one of the papers. I also used some Halloween charms around the mount.
For the second Card I have used Sweetshoppe papers I cant remember which ones as they were some that I have left in my stash which I thought went well with my image. I have used Nestabilitie dies to cut her out and mount her, a Memory Box Spider corner and Spider. I have also used some more Halloween charms to add around the image. The sentiment is one from my stash, I should also say that around the edges I have distressed it with the Tim Holtz distressing tool.
I do hope that now youve seen my cards that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and that you will want to take part in this "Halloween" Challenge.

I am finally getting some commenting done. I have been fighting RA in my wrists. It has been so bad this last few months that typing and coloring has hurt terribly. I have so new medicine and hope it will help. Love your cards. I am always in awe of your coloring and feel like I need to study each beautiful detail! You do inspire me.

Jill said...

They are both great again Shirley - the colouring on the pumpkin in particular is brilliant.
