I've used Mechanic Ted available at Di's Digi Stamps, coloured with Copics and a coat of High Gloss to the headlights. Paper Crafting Journey wants us to Use Halloween Colours too, so I'm entering there, 4 Crafty Chicks has Crazy About Wheels and The Male Room has Transport and/or Travel so I'm entering there too.
I've used the sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp, it lent itself to the "cut away" front that I find myself using regularly - the lazy man's way of decorating the front of the card while decorating the inside, lol.
I used digi papers on this card, fabulous freebies from Shery K Designs, they print up a treat :-)
The card itself is from DCWV and the black matting is from my stash.
The Card Candi on the front is from my stash too, as are the pebbles on the "inside" of the card (from Scrappers Must Haves the aptly named "Boo" collection) and the spanner charm that I have placed over a spanner that is in that position on the image. Craft Your Passion have "Heavy Metal" for their challenge so I'm entering there, The Paper Shelter have Charm Us, so in there too and Totally Papercrafts have 1 image 2 papers 3 embellies (Candi, Pebbles and Charm) so I'm in there too.
The sentiment is something else I've had in my stash for ages... it came with Happy Birthday inside, I changed it to Thank You and altered the colour (in Word) and have had it sitting in my printed folder (I use as much of the space on a page as I reasonably can when I print images, having small sentiments available is handy!) Clear It Out have Thanks as their theme with a Left over sentiment, so I'm entering there.
I cut and embossed (not that it shows in the pic!) the image panel with a new set of Crafts Too dies I bought from Scrap Dragon... I like the way they cut so I may add some more to my collection. The sentiment is cut with a Fiskars lever punch that I've had for-eva! Paper Creator Crafts has Dies or punches as their challenge, so I'm in!
I've got quite a few layers here, it's a bit hard to see in the pictures, but as I do have at least three I'm entering the Divas by Design 3+ Layers challenge.
Creative Craft Challenges, 2 Sisters Challenge, Stampin' for the Weekend, Oozak, and Through the Craftroom Door all have Anything Goes challenges so I'm entering them too.
Well that's about it for today's card... sorry it's been posted a bit late in the day (it's 1am here - I scheduled it but clicked the wrong time so only discovered it hadn't gone live when I checked after coming home from an evening out, ah well you get that sometimes lol) Check out the rest of the teams creations at Di's Digis Challenge Blog, I hope you get a chance to enter the challenge too - as you can see it doesn't even have to be a Halloween card, just the colours. We're sponsored this time around by
Markerpop... with a fabulous $10 store voucher - you can buy Di's images there in rubber form; CandiBean Stamps. Don't forget, as always, if you use one of Di's images on your entry (and there's plenty of gorgeous images to choose from) you go in an extra draw to win 2 digi images of your choice from her store, what are you waiting for?!
I have quite a few cards made now just waiting to be blogged - as soon as I get time I'll be back with one of them. Life is still a bit busy, but in a good way - my son Matt started back at work full time this week, he did two days last week but his foot swelled up like a balloon, it's not as bad this week. I do the paperwork for his business so my time in the office is ramped back up - my other clients have been very understanding, but the time has come to get back to work.
I've got to say I've never been so glad to be snowed under with paperwork, it means Matt's life is back to normal (or close to it, he still has some adjustments to make, he finds it difficult to do some of the climbing that earthworks involve as he has no forefoot to use as leverage, but he will adapt I'm sure) I'm back to helping his wife with the babies a couple of times a week, and even though it was soooo intense when he was off work for so long I miss seeing them every day. Until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna
