Anita Be.....Back

Anyone who knows Antia Be Stampin' knows the challenge blog has been on holiday; well as of today.... it's back, and guess who's invited on to the DT for three months? Can't guess ....it's ME!!!
In case you haven't worked it out the challenge theme this week is "Spooky Halloween Themed Projects".
I've used the digi image Tabitha for my creation, pop over to the blog and check out my teamies inspiration ...they're using a couple of new-to-digi images Broomhilda and Frankenbride that were so popular as rubber stamps.
You need to use an Anita Be Stampin' image (rubber or digi) to enter the challenge, if you don't have one but want the chance to win you can always join the Anita Be Stampin' Papercraft Planet group where members have access to a free digi image, also for a limited time you can get the Batty digi image free at Anita Be Stampin' - perfect for this weeks challenge.

To celebrate starting up again - and to thank you for your patience -there's a super prize this time....a $25 ABS gift certificate.  All the details are on the challenge blog, so go check it out - you've got until 8pm (CST) Monday to enter.  There's loads of Halloween challenges out there, so you could (like me) get real value for money out of one ickle ol' card, lol.
I coloured Tabitha with Copics. Cupcake Inspirations has this great photo inspiration this time and Craft Your Days Away has Halloween Colours so I'm entering there. Stamptacular Sunday Challenge has Black Orange Purple and Scary... not sure how "scary" little Tabitha is, but I'm entering there too.The base card is from my stash, the fab designer paper is called Oogie Boogie...love it, but I am down to scraps and its discontinued :-(  I can't complain, I've made quite a few cards from it and I only bought one 12" sheet!
Paper Play Challenges wants us to use black, the base of the card is black and my lovely glittery paper is black...just with green glittery dots on! The corrugated card, which I mounted on orange cardstock punched with my Fiskars Apron Lace punch, is black too...so I'm in! Totally Papercrafts has Layer Upon Layer, exactacally what I have; I'm in!
The "Boo" are letter stickers, and the little black cat-looking pearls on the corners of the image are in fact little tulips, I got them at Perth's big craft show earlier this year, and as soon as I got home I thought...what the... am I ever going to USE these? Answer is yup!!
I just bought the orange buttons, well I bought a bag of buttons and these were in it, lol and the twine is from my stash.
Once again I have finished the inside of the card very simply. I forgot to take a photo of it, so this one is a bit dark, oh well. I added Card Candi to the corners of the jotting panel and little googly eyes (which I've had literally for years, close to twenty years, who says I'm a hoarder? lol.
These challenges have Spooky as their theme so even though Tabitha's not that spooky she is going there; Pollycraft, Divas by Design, Stampin' for the Weekend and Crafty Calendar. The other challenges I'm going to enter all have Halloween as their theme, they are Digital TuesdayAllsorts ChallengesThe Crafty Pad and Addicted to Stamps.
That's it for today, I'll be back in a day or so with "something other than Halloween" (don't know what it will be yet, but I do know what it won't be, lol).
Until then, Happy Crafting, Dee

Luckily Morgan's narrowly missed out on a black eye, but he's got a big scrape and bruise all down one side of his face - it's a shame it's not Halloween until Mon, we could have built it into his costume lol. Lisa x
