Monster Mash Mania....The Male Room #21~Halloween, Wanna Sketch #21, Simon Monday Challenge~Anything Goes, Simon Wednesday Challenge~Kraft, Lawnscaping Challenge~HALLOWEEN or Color Combo

Hello - hope you're having an excellent Sunday.

"Somebody" is crushing over and smitten my her new Lawn Fawn Little Monsters stamps and Monster Mash dies. Sorry, but I can't help it. They are tooo cute! I'm using them today for Halloween cards...such spooky monsters they are. *grin*

I'm sharing them at Lawnscaping Challenge: Halloween or Colour Combo


and  Simon Says Monday Challenge: Anything Goes,


 as well as a few others, as you'll see along the way.  Ready to be scared??

Here's card #1, heading off to Wanna Sketch #21


I moved the strip behind the panel to the banner across the label...
          


My second card was inspired by Yainea's absolutely darling birthday card found here.  I cased hers, using a Halloween-theme. Gahhh...these little guys make me giggle.

 

Card #3 was modeled after this card at A Blog Named Hero (here's the link to the how-to), and it's heading off to The Male Room #21~Halloween  Flying purple monsters and googly eyes?  Yet another card for my nephew, so I'm claiming 'young guy' appeal (hopefully) on this one.



 Cards 2 and 3 are going to Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Use Kraft


One more day (give or take....) of 'whatever I want" card-making, then it's time to start my Christmas card only diet.  I  have plenty of those to make, as I want to give a whole bunch to my mom, for the Christmas Bazaar and Bake sale at the seniors' residence where she volunteers (and has been doing so for 35 years!).  Fingers crossed they'll sell and the proceeds go to my mom's volunteer group for their seniors' needs purchases.  I'm also hoping to make extras...I want everyone in that residence to have at least one Christmas card. This is my personal caring hearts card drive; just thinking about it warms my heart.  I'd best get crackin'!!

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!

  30. Okay, that does it! Each card is cuter than the next one – how is one supposed to pick a favorite? I don't even know what I should complement you on first: The excellent color choices, the amazing coloring, the incredible creative card design, or your use of the white space? I guess mainly I'm jealous because I look at your projects and think: why didn't I come up with this? :-)

  31. All your wonderful Halloween creations have been perfect for what I think Halloween is and should be - a cutesy holiday for the kids NOT scary and gorey!! These little monsters are adorable and I found myself smiling a whole lot as I read through this post and saw these awesomely designed cards!!!
