Vintage Halloween

Tick Toc fall is here…
A fun card with a TON of Challenges attached to it… I am trying to do as many as I can on one card… YIKES… I really went over board today… now to link them all.. that is what will take me so long… but it is so great to see all the work of other artists… 

First off… the Pumpkin is from Pretties by Bonnie..  where you can find other fun digitals… I have been adding digitals that I find useful… and these pumpkins are fun to play with… as there are two and you can make them in any size desired.. take a look at them.. I also love to cook and wash veggies fresh from the garden… so I have a colander too.. love them.

The Sketch is one of the five sketches available to celebrate Verve Stamp release of their newest fall stamps… check it out… anyway I am going to try and use all five of these this week… they are all wonderful sketches… Love them.

The Shabby Tea Room week #30… Vintage Halloween Theme… along with a picture to inspire us… I love the chandeliers… but didn’t have a stamp of one… so I used the background of Kassies to show the time era… also used the vintage Halloween print… love the cat in that picture…

Simon Says…. Show your numbers… I embossed them on the right side of the card… I used tissue tape behind the pumpkin.. and also have a flower made by Tim Holtz Floral template… I most likely will create another card using some more of these things… as I really enjoy this energy… thanks

Flourishes #86… use the colors of Green, Brown, Orange, Russet and cream.. I have all those colors there … that is for sure…

Creative Cottage …. To use BLING… I used Antique Linen Stickels on the flower… and there is tons of it on there…

Creative Belli… use old and forgotten embellishments… so I used the face of the watch… and also the vintage Halloween picture…

Cute Card Thursday challenge #132  is to use a Tic Tock… which is there…

Sentiment Sundays wants Fall colors… or card… I think this is really fall in colors and feeling… I love it for this time of year…

Also Really Reasonable Ribbon Fall card with ribbon…

Oh Alice…. Use Text on the card…

Paper Sundaes  Something from your Stash… the whole card… but one thing that is really from my stash… the brown background paper is an Anna Griffin paper… it must be over 7 years old.. maybe more… ??? It was a stashed item… that is for sure..

Crazy 4 Challenges  Color challenge… orange, green, yellow, brown and black.. all are there…

The Crazy Challenge… go green RECYCLE something… the watch face!!!! Of course.. 

Artful Affirmations a very vintage ATC was the inspiration… and this is right in the fitting of that…

Pile it on… okay… they want more than three challenges.. I think I have 16 challenges so far… and then they request that we use 4 different embossing folders on the card… which I have … the background, the area on the right where the numbers are… and the Lacey circle and the little circle next to it… all are embossed…

Okay… The only other thing I have not told you about is the orange paper I painted with H20’s… and the pumpkin was done in markers, h2o’s and a little stickles… now you have it ALL….

Hope you have had a wonderful FALL day… it is chilly here… and I am truthfully very comfortable at this time…

Thanks for stopping by… and hope that you had a nice stay here..
Love, Light and Peace…Bonnie
