Spooky Fun Challenge Starts Today

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, at least when it comes to crafting. That's why I've chosen the theme of Halloween for our new challenge!! Papers, images, embellishments--give your project a Halloween theme and come play with us for your chance to win five free digis from our guest sponsor, Ike's Art.
"Hi there – I am Ike, a nickname that I got hooked with many years ago due to my surname, and in my profession at that time . They just loved  to give nicknames. I live in Greece and have a passion for kitties. I am a complete nutter or should I say I have a very strange/sick sense of humour and I must admit I spend a lot of time talking to myself. !!  Well, I get more sense out of me!  I reckon in a few years I shall be known as the “crazy cat lady.” 
I am an artist and have a strange mind when it comes to creating my art. I either go completely true to life… right down to the last hair… or I go totally surreal. I have a passion for all things horror/Gothic, etc. I’ve always loved horror films and books and I guess that’s why it creeps into my stuff/. I started my Blog a couple of years ago and although I love crafting, my real passion is drawing, and now I just love making digital images.
My SHOP is IkesArt found at
My Blog is Ikes World and is at
My new Challenge Blog is
Exclusive designer for Smeared Ink"

Thank you, Ike! Now, in order to have a crack at winning her fabulous prize package, you'll need to put your spooky on and show us what you got by linking your card, tag, layout, altered art, d├ęcor, party handmades, even canvas!!
Here to inspire you is our design team using images from Ike's Art!  Don't forget, it does not have to be a card -- your choice in art work!

VIRGINIA M.  Virginia used digi image "Witch 2" and framed it by ripping a "hole" in her patterned paper for the image to peek out at you!
HOLLEY B. used Genie with some cute little skellies

JOYCE G. using Witchy on a black and white background with a swinging style to her.

PAT M. used Genie with a funny sentiment inside:

LINDA W. using
IKE'S ART VAGUELY GOTH with spooky colors

 LINDA W. also used
IKE'S ART WITCH 2 on fun Halloween papers

Here VIRGINIA M. also used digi image Witchy and crinkled her background paper for an aged look.
Now it's your turn to scare us with your projects!!! Mwahaha!!
