Pez-A-Doodle Designs & some Challenges

Good morning. Well this card was supposed to posted yesterday but it literally took me all day to make it. Of course most of the day it was finding the energy that was the problem,  but once I finally got started I just went with it and was pleased with how it turned out. Being sick sucks when you're solo parenting 4 kids for the week. Roll on Friday when hubby will be home.

Anyway, onwards and upwards.. My card today is for...

2) Magnolia Down Under - who asked for Halloween
3) Friday Sketchers with their fabby sketch.
4) Papertake Weekly - with their theme "The Dark Side"

This month on Pez-a-Doodle Designs the product focus is grungeboard and inks, so I've used both ;) I coloured my Tilda image with TH distress inks and inked the grungeboard lamp post with Black Soot, then I added Black Diamond stickles for some dimension (and of course some sparkle). I also gave Tilda a black sparkly bow. 

OK, so you've probably noticed that Tilda is not of the Halloween kind, lol. I didn't have any Halloween Magnolias *shock* so I had to do some improvising! I thought the sentiment with this particular image tied it all together to make a 'cute' Halloween card ;) I made the sentiment using the Dymo label maker, I love that thing but keep forgetting I have it!!

Papers: BG Eerie
Image: Magnolia Tilda with Cat
Grungeboard, black satin ribbon, black & orange adhesive gems, 
Nestabilites oval & scalloped oval, cuttlebug, dymo label maker
Brad: Imaginisce

Well that's it from me for today but I will be back tomorrow with another challenge project. I hope you all have a very pleasant Wednesday :)  I'm off to blog hop....
