Calendar Girls October Challenge

WOW!!!  The challenge for this month, from our hostess, Tami...was incredible!  I wasn't sure I would be able to create a card with all the requirements but I think I did!!!!  And I was able to use a couple new stamps from Whippersnappers that I just got.  Thanks Barb for shopping for me at Creative Pals!  We don't celebrate Halloween and I normally don't make Halloween cards but I just had to have this stamp and sentiment because my youngest just LOVES candy!!!!

So here is Tami's challenege:

We are all about the month of October! I have three little challenges for the girls this month.

It is the tenth month of the year, so please have exactly ten ( 10 ) items on your card. No more, no less! The ten items do not include your card base. Your image stamped on a piece of card stock is counted as one item.

Our due date is the 28th. So, that is going to require two ( 2 ) circles needed on each card and a minimum of eight ( 8 ) different colors

So....I have two circles.  I counted the colors in my DP (white, black, purple, orange, yellow, pink, and green) and then I used some gray on the hat, giving me the eight required colors.  For the ten items I have...my designer paper, my image, the sentiment, a web punched border, web embossed layer, ribbon, brad, photo corner punch, arrow punch and my spider on the inside.


Thanks for stopping by.  Please check out all the Calendar Girls creations.  Their blogs are in my sidebar.  Enjoy the remainder of your weekend!
