Little Monsters at Card Cupids

Yesterday began a new challenge Card Cupids (November 1-14), sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs. Our theme is "Happy Fall, Ya'll!"

Heather from
FBD gave our DT several fun images to work with (you can my find my cards featuring them here and here), and I liked this fun Monster so much that I made two cards!

Here's a simple circle card that practically screams "Happy Fall, Ya'll!":

I'm entering this little cutie into the following fun challenges:

Celebrate the Occasion #86: Fall
Crafting for all Seasons: Falling Leaves
Fresh Brewed Designs: Thinking of You
Scrapalicious: Fall

I cut out the Hello Monster, ran the pieces through my sticker machine & covered them with sparkly fluff from Our Craft Lounge. The leaves were cut with a Spellbinders die, and were actually extras from my Fall Fence card.

Here's a Halloween-y card I also made using this cute Monster image:

I made the banner with an SP & Company set and an eyeball from a Recollections set. I replaced the "Hello" sentiment with a digi from TLC Creations, and used another TLC sentiment for the inside:

I hope you'll join the challenge and send in a card (it doesn't have to be the card you enter in the challenge).

Update: I won the monthly prize at Celebrate the Occasion! Whoop!

Thank you for visiting,
