My very first Halloween cards!

BOO! Here are my first ever Halloween cards! I`ll submit them for the Caardvarks "Take a bow" challenge and the Paper Crafts October gallery challenge and the second one is for the Hero Arts "paper piecing" challenge, too. Wow, so many challenges! For the first card I used my Nestabilities, some felt and some fun ribbon to create this hairy spider:




For my second card I used Papertrey Ink paper/cardstock/button and the Hero Arts digi kits "Jack-o-Lanterns" and " WORD ART - dictionary page" and some fun ribbon. The sentiment is computer generated using a free font called "Destroyed". I paper pieced the pumpkin with Papertrey Ink paper and BoBunny paper. Fun technique!

I hope you enjoy my spooky cards! Have a fun Thursday and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa
