Whoooo knew lol

Here we are and it's October all ready, gosh all of a sudden time seems to have picked up speed. Anyway a new month meant a new challenge over at CCAYR and this month the challenge was


 'So...  your Christmas cards this month need to have at least one of what are considered Halloween colours (orange, green, purple, black).  We'd also like to see a punch or die cut somewhere on your card and this can mean regular punches, Spellbinders dies, border punches, something that was purchased pre-done, etc!'


So here is what i came up with...






I introduced green as it seemed the most appropriate colour for both Halloween and Christmas and fortunately i had these lovely stickers which i think i bought from a £1 shop and had never used along with the metallic paper clips which would have been wasted for fastening things together but add more of a festive feel and finish off the cards nicely. I have used a punch on the papers although i suspect it should have been what was punched out rather than the shape which was included but penny has only just dropped lol. Anyway if i do say so myself i love these cards, the colours and the simplicity and it helped me use something that would have otherwise stayed in the draw. Here's to the festive season and all that follows :) Don't forget to stop by and see all the other lovely creations made by my fellow DT members :)
