First Saturday Spotlight Challenge and Simon Says Challenge for Paige!!!!!!!!!!

Well it's finally time for the first Saturday Spotlight Challenge!!!! So I'm very excited to share my first card with you! The challenge was to create a Halloween card without using a Halloween stamp! Pretty tricky huh? The gals came up with some amazing ideas!!!! I decided to use a Whimsy Stamp since they are our generous sponsor this week. I used Knight Connor, he looks all ready for trick or treat doesn't he? I also used Christmas papers!! Head on over to Saturday spotlight to see what the rest of the ladies have in store.

Fred she said is also doing a world cardmaking day challenge with a 25$ gift cert. up for grabs...more details to follow!

Challenges for this card...
Scrap, stamp and doodle.....Halloween
The pink elephant....polkadots, tag and punch
Stamp with fun....sketch
Whimsy stamps...the eyes have it

Lols from Simon Says challenge blog contacted me to see if they could make their special World cardmaking day challenge in honor of Paige. I was very touched and said of course!!! So their theme for today is a girly card that you can mail to Paige or post pals. I used the sketch from sketch Saturday for this one. I also used one of my girliest images this gorjus girl. Big hugs to the Simon Says challenge team for thinking of Paige today. And thank you to all of you who take part in the challenge. Just email me for my address. Also my blog candy for all cardmakers ends Monday, so be sure to check that out as well.
Thanks for stoppin' by!
