One Card - Nine Challenges!

Afternoon all, and what a damp one it is in this part of the world. Just got back from an interesting "Hallowe'en" party - a friend of ours is 60 next weekend but as he and his wife are having a weekend in London, the family and friends party was today and disguised as his grandson's Hallowe'en party - ghosts, ghouls and witches abounded in plenty! So, armed with plenty of inspiration and stuffed full of cocktail sausages I got stuck into the challenges.

I don't as a rule do Hallowe'en and only own about three images. This card has been made for the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday No 74
Penny Black Saturday Challenge Week 72 Hallowe'en
Creative Inspirations No 32 Hallowe'en
Pile It On No 19 Ready For Hallowe'en
Stamp With Fun No 29 Hallowe'en
Cupcake Craft Challenges No 62 Things That Go Bump In The Night
Stamping For The Weekend No 21 A Haunting Good Time
My Time To Craft Challenge No 82 Hallowe'en Colours
Everybody Art Challenge No 62 Hallowe'en

For this card I have used:
Penny Black stamp "Apprentice" coloured with ProMarkers and worried (not quite distressed) around the edges with VersaColour lavender ink
Papermania and DCWV papers
Bazzil and DCWV cardstock
Sentiment is computer generated using "Eddy's Bones" font
Cobwebs and spider are drawn by me (hence spider's slightly manic expression)

Thanks for popping by to see me, hope the rest of your weekend is a good one.
Hugs, Squirrel xx

Hi Squirrel, I don't believe you (Penny Black Queen) only have 3 images suitable for Halloween. I am sure you could find some more in your stash. Having said that this card is adorable and well done on finding all those challenges. Good luck with winning one (or more) of them. Hugs Debs xx
