Anything But a Quirky Card!!

 Hi guys! Hope all are well and fighting fit! And those who aren't please get well soon. It's that Quirky Time again when I wonder if it really is Sunday or am I still dreaming and it's Monday morning and I've forgot to go to work... (I did do that last week!) Anyway!! We have a new challenge starting over on Quirky Crafts challenge blog, sponsored by Robyn's Fetish. Don't forget to read the post! Loads last time didn't and missed adding 'stuff' to their fabulous creations, so couldn't really be counted! This fortnight  it's Caro's turn to set the theme and she has chosen...
A.B.C. which means Anything But a Card using Autumn Colours!!
Here's my make.  I've done a bit of recycling and used a black bag I had some pressies in. Cut it down a bit, and then covered it with some orangey/browny Halloween papers (by Bearly Mine, a mixture of bought as well as freebies,and made a Trick Or Treat Bag. Find them,  HERE and here... here and here (although they may all lead to the same place) On the front of the bag I've added BearlyAPumpkin   by our sponsor, which is  on sale at the moment $2.50 now $1.63 (Not sure what that is in pounds) and some punched out Tags using up some scraps, one of those is a PinkPetticoat  paper and the Boo paper is by....ummmm? Linked it's a card I made using the Boo papers HERE and the freebie papers can be found HERE That should keep you busy for a little while!
 I've added eyelets and eyelash wool to black cord handles and a little silver coloured metel clip to help keep it closed. 
The Font is a freebie. It looks like bones and is called HeadHunter download it HERE
Hope my Trick or Treat bag gives you some ideas. For more just pop over to Quirky Crafts to see what the rest of the team has come up with!
