Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! Today is the start of Challenge #11 at Hooked On Craft Challenges and the theme this fortnight is 'Halloween'! I am so excied for Halloween and I just adore all the Halloween themed stamps at Hooked On Craft. For my card I have made a spooky graveyard scene! I used my Cricut and 'Happy Hauntings' cartridge to cut out my Frankenstein, graves, and skeleton. My background house was cut out on Cricut as well with my 'Pumpkin Carving' cartridge. I inked my edges with distress ink in 'tea dye' and 'walnut stain' to give it a kind of darker feel.

Please join is at Hooked On Craft Challenges for our 'Halloween' challenge! Can't wait to see all the fabulous creations!

Hope you get to eat lots of lollies and chocolate today! (Well, at least I will be! At the bottom of this post is a pic of yummy Halloween cupcakes I made!).

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

- Secret Crafter. Challenge #158; Spooky or whimsical
- Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge. Challenge #106; Halloween
- Glitter Geeks. Challenge #21; Ghosts and ghoulls. spiders and spooks

Here is a pic of some Halloween cupcakes I made too! They have spooky yucky body parts in them like ears, feet, teeth and fingers! Don't worry though, they are made of sugar so I still have all of my limbs! They are white chocolate mud cupcakes with mango icing; yummo!:
