October Challenge

OK, we all know that there's another "holiday" in October and that's Halloween. So... your Christmas cards this month need to have at least one of what are considered Halloween colours (orange, green, purple, black). We'd also like to see a punch or die cut somewhere on your card and this can mean regular punches, Spellbinders dies, border punches, something that was purchased pre-done, etc!

***Remember if you do 5 cards this month following the challenge, your name will go into a draw for a prize at the end of October! (This challenge CAN be combined with any other blog or forum challenges that you do this month.)

Please upload your cards to your blog, a gallery, or photobucket and remember to give us the EXACT links to see them. You can do 5 of the same cards or 5 different ones (as long as they follow the current challenge) If you do 5 of the same, please show us a picture of them altogether. If the linky isn't working for you for any reason, just post your link in the comments! Thanks!

Colleen and Lesley

Noticed a few entries so far that the halloween colours seem a bit few and far between! I don't know about anyone else but I feel the colours need to be bold for halloween!! Hoping we get some more SPOOKTACULAR cards. x

Great DT samples. I hope I'll be able to upload card #5 very soon and I promise I will use a bigger punch/die for this one, lol.

Fun challenge in trying colors outside of the Christmas box! I've posted 5 cards for this challenge and had a great time doing them. Thanks for all the DT inspiration pieces. They're all lovely!

Brigitte said...

Awesome challenge!!! I finally finished my fifth card!!! Love your inspiration!

Marianne said...

Just uploaded my fifth card. Maybe I will try to reach ten this month. Christmas is approaching fast. ;-)

Brigitte said...

That was a hard challenge! I really tried to have a lot of the colours. I entered 7 cards, so if some of them seems not acceptable, I put some extras. Thanks for the challenge!

My cards are also posted. I enjoyed the challenge this month... it was something a little different, and I really had to think about how to use the colours so the card didn't end up looking like I'd made it for the wrong holiday!

Not sure where to post, but I managed 6 this time. Looking forward to another month of cards!
