Trick or Treat at Cards for Men

It's been a long time since I've managed a project for Cards for Men but this really was a quick one.  The sponsor is The Paper Shelter and the beauty of the digis from them is that you get pre-coloured included for free!

I chose to use a pre-coloured sheet of tags and toppers called 'Trick or Treat'.  You get 2 A4 sheets for $1.75 (usually $2.50) with lots of different ideas.  I quickly printed out a sheet, added the tag to a piece of folded card and stuck it to the top of my goodie bag.  Easy Peasy.

Take a look at the full blog post over on Cards for Men where you'll see some wonderful ideas from my teamies plus all the details of how to enter.  You've got to be in it to win it.

Tag ... You're It

That's been the most common sound in my house lately with the school holidays.  But for the challenge over at Cards for Men we're looking for the Tags of a crafting type.  Either a Tag or a card with a tag on it, is required to enter.  The prize on offer is a $10 gift certificate to spend at Fresh Brewed Designs.

I made a tag to go with a Trick or Treat sweetie bag and also a small card to go with it.

Pop over to the main post at Cards for Men to see the fabulous ideas from my team mates and to see the full details of the challenge.  Good Luck.

The witching hour

As I write this post, it's almost midnight although quite a way from Halloween yet.  Over at Simply Betty Stamps, Betty is mad about Halloween though and has set a great Facebook Fan Challenge.  If you're early enough you can get an image free to use but you must use it in the challenge, only fair I think.  The image is now available to buy, Mercedes Witch, and the challenge runs to September 13th.

Here's my card:

I've coloured the image using promarkers.  The background paper is Basic Grey and I've used a bit of web ribbon from my stash.  The sentiment is computer generated.

BINGO - I've won!

This week at Cards for Men we have a BINGO Board challenge and here's my DT card:

 I'm not sure what the stamped image is because I bought a few of these stamps second hand.  The background paper is from Fancy Pants and I've coloured my image using my promarkers.  The twine, tags and ticket punch/stamps are all from Stampin Up and the charm is from Whiff of Joy.

Please pop over to the main challenge to see all the rules and the wonderful cards from the rest of the Design Team.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
