10/10/ has to be Spooky Quirky!

Well, with the date being the 10th of the 10th 2010, it had to be spooky didn't it! As it's something that's not going to happen again for a very long time. (Ok...but will 11/11/11/ be spookier, I wonder?) I was going to put this up at 10 to 10, but thought better of it. Well, I don't want to tempt fate as I've already had my car break down three times this last fortnight. First, the gears changer thingy went 'crunch', which meant no gears. Just got that fixed when the long bit with the bolt and spilt pin came undone, leaving only third, fourth and fifth gears, but no reverse or first. It's surprising how many right hand turns on hills that suddenly appear when you're trying to get home! And then, yesterday....the exhaust fell off...I sounded like a boy racer. Fabulous!! (but very noisy!) So, that's the three, hopefully no more please!! Oh, I forgot, yes, it's still drenching me in water every time I go round a left hand bend...
So as you may have already guessed, it's that Quirky time again. Quirky Craft's new Challenge has started over on the challenge blog.
This time round Caro has set us a sketch.. and here it is. Nice and easy! So, all you have to do is make something crafty, anything you chose, (it doesn't have to be spooky!) anything from altered art, atc's, tags, scrapbook pages, to journals and of course cards, as long as you follow the sketch, (or there abouts!) then pop over to Quirky Crafts and join in. This week Caro is putting up some Crafty goodies for the winner!
My DT card it's approx 8x8 and is for a young friend who has a birthday right at the end of October, so she just has to have a spooky card. (will add inside pictures later) I've used mostly Pink Petticoat papers and fast becoming my favourite Halloween Penny Black stamp (as it's the only one I've got!) "Trick or Treat" Coloured the image with Promakers and did a bit of decoupage and!!! used my latest MS buy, a bat corner punch, which was half price! (sorry, there was only the one!) I added three black eyelets and then tied some black and purple eyelash wool through them, not sure why, it seemed a good idea at the time! I wrote the 'Boo!' But the font I used for, 'Too Cute to Spook' is a freebie, it's called Horros (you even get a little duck with it!) and you can download it HERE and for loads of other lovely horror fonts go HERE
I still think the card needs something else, maybe a bit of Stickles glitter?
That's it for now, thank you for stopping by... I had some challenges in mind, but seem to have missed most of them! (boo!) but here's a few more I found...

  1. Ah 10/10/10 - not spooky if you have a birthday on the same day as the month umber (I do) so it just kinda feels special! I love the card you've made from the sketch - I've almost completely missed out on Hallowe'en preps so far...really must get on and make some efforts!

  2. Lol, I didn't get a pop up on your blog but I did get it when I clicked to leave a comment :P
    Love your card, and come on, spill the beans. where has MS punches in for half price? I'll have to wait 'til payday anyway but if they have any left it wil be something to look forward to :P
    Love your card, it's totally spookalicious, and there was little boy in Leicester who became 1o years old at 10 to 10 this morning, lol, so it's pretty special for him :D

  3. Great card Lyn, I'm sitting on my hands and not making anymore until my Nesties come :)
