Simply B Stamps 13 Days of Halloween: Day 1



Over at Simply B(etty) Stamps it's all about Halloween year round!  But during the month of October the fun really begins!  You already saw the fab goodies I received as part of their Secret Pumpkin Exchange.  Now are you ready for the 13 Days of Halloween?  That's right - 13 Halloween themed challenges over at Simply Challenged Challenges designed to keep you crafting all month long!  There is a prize for each challenge, but the grand prize for one lucky crafter who participates in all 13 challenges is a spot on the SBS Simply Challenged design team for 2013!  You don't need to use a SBS image to play, but you do to be eligible for prizes.

The challenge for Day 1 is Trick or Treat for a Tot.  Betty and the DT ladies want to see Halloween projects created for a child.  It can be anything - a treat holder, a layout, a card - as long as it's for a wee one.  I decided it was a good time to make a Halloween/birthday card for my friend's son.  He'll be 5, and I think he'll really enjoy this cute image of Batty Jude from the 2012 Teen Scene Halloween collection!  Jude is colored with Copics, fussy cut, and popped up with foam squares.  The sketch is from Crafting When We Can (#28).  Papers are leftover from last year's DCWV Midnight Spell stack.  For the corner element I used the Nested Bat Nestabilities from Spellbinders.  I also used the Pumpkin Circles Nestabilities.  I added a few black pearls and a fun sentiment from Studio G.  






I can't wait to see what the theme for Day 2 is!  I love Halloween!  My decorations are already up and costumes are being planned and created!  I love to bake too so I'm planning "bloody" cupcakes and creepy finger cookies along with my homemade pumpkin bread!  Yum!

Thanks for visiting!  I'm off to get my small man ready for bed and then I have more crafting to do.  Have a fabulous evening!

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, EOO, E23, E31, E37, E79, R20, R32, W4, W6, W8, W10, V12, Y35, YR04, YR07, YR15, YR18).

Fantastic card. Having Batty Jude on foam squares so he is lifted makes all the difference! I am sure the young man who receives this will be very batty about it! (sorry for the pun!)
