Did you pop by One Stitch At A Time Challenge yesterday and played the game with us? If you did you would have also seen that the theme for today challenge is ... yes, HALLOWEEN !!! Still some time for that, but I'm already thinking of what to wear for a party I'll be going, he he :) ... I love parties where I can let go and have fun!!! Did you see the photos from my party last year ????

This is my card for today... my FIRST Halloween Card ...

For my card today I used Happy Halloween Pumpkin from Hope Jacare, which I coloured with my promarkers and for my papers today I decided to make my own. To do that I used my Inkadinkadoo Clear Stamps and stamped various circles with black, red and and green ink and also some stars randomly with another stamp. I also smudged around the paper and drawn some black lines ... I had so much fun doing this and really loved how it turned out.

For the border I used my Cuttlebug circles embossing folder and then cut the edges with a fancy cut scissors. The bats I cut those myself as I didn't have anything halloweeny in my stash, and these I stuck to some acetate so they are really popped out and look as if they are really flying he he :0
