Halloween ~ Scary or Cute?

This is my card for the October Challenge Your Stash group on SCS.  This is our 10th month of de-stashing!

The premise is to create a card or something else that uses only items that are in your own stamp room--nothing new is to be purchased.  The hostess each month posts their challenge to the group and the card is due to be posted on the 28th. Each person in the group creates their card with their own image, their own papers, their own embellishments with their own supplies--using up items from their own stash!  The card can be for any occasion and each person is encouraged to send the card on its way to someone so it can be admired.  It is a way for us to step out of the box a bit and create something that follows a challenge--isn't that what a challenge is supposed to be.  And--no money is spent as all items are to be already available in each of own stamping spaces.

Jody posted our October challenge--Halloween--scary or cute?   Jody mentioned that she has a disagreement with her son about how to decorate for Halloween.  So--we were to create a card that represents how we decorate for Halloween in our home.  I guess you can see, I am on the Cute Side!  I do have a number of Halloween stamps, so more of a challenge was to decide which one to use--so of course I pick Whipper Snapper Designs!  There is a bit of sparkle on his nose and cheeks, along with some black sparkle on the spider!

Here is the inside of my card:

If you check some of the blogs on my sidebar, you may find others who have posted their cards today or in the next day or so.  There may be more posted in the thread on SCS, so you might want to check out the link here.  We also have a keyword for the SCS Gallery--it is CYSOCT.  You might see many cards there is you do a search.

I hope you enjoyed my card and I know I am excited to check out what my other hoarders, I mean stash reducers have made!  Thanks for stopping by today!  For November, Vickie is up and I cannot wait to see her challenge.  Be sure to check back to see what we create!
