Pumpkin Girl

I've not had a lot of time to do Halloween cards this year.  Fall is  my favorite time  of  year and it just seems  I have too many projects and not enough time.  Tonight I threw this quick card together to enter into a few challenges that will close soon. 

Crafty Gals has a Halloween Colors Challenge.
Paper Play Sketches  has a color challenge this week.  Black Orange and Gray.
Through the Craft Room DoorPenny's Paper Craft Challenges and Craft Creations all have an Anything Goes Challenge.
Simon Says Wednesday has a  Halloween or fall Challenge.

Small pumpkin boxes

I often  visit  nursing home where there are a lot of patients who have no family to visit them.  My daughter and I made  40  of these small boxes and filled them with candy.  I plan to deliver them to the nursing home next week for those patients.  These  small treats  will surely  brighten their day.  Die Cutting Divas has  a RAK challenge this week.  This  should work real well there.  Give a Crafter a Cookie and CAS on Friday both have a Halloween themed challenge.

Pumpkin Cart

For his  cute  guy I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I don't  always have ideas on a layout when I start so it is nice to be able to use a sketch.   Aud Sentiments has a Die+ a Sentiment challenge. I managed to  pull out my Spellbinder rectangles to cut pieces for this card since I couldn't get to my silhouette.  Both  Inspiration Destination and  Through the Purple Haze have Anything Goes Challenges.  Di's Digi Challenges has an Add a Sentiment challenge.

Ghost with Sign

Well it has been a while since I made three posts in one night.  For this one I used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Crafty Sentiments has a  Fall/Halloween Challenge. Crafty Gals  has a  make it Spooktacular challenge.  Fab and  Funky has a word art  challenge.  Penny's Paper Craft challenge is Anything Goes.

Autumn Shadow Box Card

Today  I made this  shadowbox card for the Glitter N' Sparkle Fall Challenge.  I really like these cards but I  did  think it needed more color so I added the fall leaf patterned paper  to the  back flap.  I used a  sugar  glitter fine  paper to cut the  word Autumn for the front.  Through the  Craft Room Door has an Anything Goes challenge.

Halloween Treat Boxes

Today I made this collection of treat boxes.   I like to have a  few  on hand so that I can give them out to people I meet along  my daily travels.  I filled these with jelly beans. I  hope whoever receives them enjoys them as much as  I enjoyed making them.  Simon Says Monday has an Anything but a card challenge.

Happy Haunting

I  finally found  a few minutes of  peace and quiet so of course I sat down in the craft room.  because I'm on limited time I needed something simple.  This sketch is from Little Tangles.  it seemed to just  fit for this image I colored a  few days ago.  Cupcake Inspirations has a Yellow Orange and Black Challenge. Jo's Scrap Shack and Crafting From the Heart both have an Anything Goes Challenge.  Hiding in My  Craft Room also has a Halloween Color Challenge.  Crazy Hazelnut has her usual Patterned Paper Challenge.
