Hi, there! Here's something I've never seen before -- a Halloween challenge. Call me crazy, but I thought it sounded like the most fun, so I applied to the design team and now here I am to help kick things off for the October Jumpstart.
It's the Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge (tee hee, love the name), conceived by Darlene and Diane who also own the Double D challenge blog. After this month the challenges will start on the 2nd of each month and run till the 28th... just go to the challenge blog to read what the Two Old Bats have to say about it.
We have an inspiration board for fun and creative spark , but the challenges are always anything goes.
This is what I did:
Halloween isn't for everyone, but for me it's all about the memories. I don't have grandkids, so now the card making is my way of carrying on the fun. When our son was young there were a lot of good times with school parties and carnivals, costume parades, trick-or-treating. We made quite a spectacle of it at work, too, and afternoons the place just about shut down as what seemed like every kid in town came for candy. They were so cute!
My card today uses all oldie-but-goodie stamps and papers... still just as cute as ever, I think. Coloring was done with Copic markers. Apparently something went wrong with the witch's hocus pocus -- oops! Does it look to you like the cat and the spider are laughing at her? Just wait till she gets out from under that hat!
You know... I retired from the challenge teams I was on, seeing as how we expected to be road tripping most of the summer, but COVID happened and now we're home. You know the sentiment, "Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we might as well dance". Well, let's dance!
Enjoy your day!
