BBTB2 Halloween Witch Challenge
Oh my! Halloween is almost here. Are you ready? We gals at BBTB2 sure are. My dear and talented friend, fellow MSU Spartan and DT Sister Susan, has chosen any witch from any cartridge as our challenge this week at BBTB2 and there are lots of them from "witch" to choose. LOL Since Goliath has been terrorizing the backyard, the critters are up in arms and have called upon the powers of this cutie from Happy Hauntings. They've asked her (him?) to conjure up a spell to make them all invisible to cats. Best of luck! I'm sorta sick of scooping up body parts from the back porch.
It's a shaped front card, welded in DS. The "EEK!" is also from Happy Hauntings and the big ol' moon, just a circle from George. Not sure why, but I also seem to always favor a rounded rectangle for the back. Softer look maybe, or just a creature of habit. And I can't tell you how thrilled I was to find BLACK Alpha Beads. BE STILL MY HEART! There a a few little details, like wire whiskers, a bit of doodling and a fuzzy nose. The teeny bats are from K&Co.
Yup, she's layered up, alright. If I'm gonna do it, I'm gonna do it right, which brings me to an apology for not participating last week. I'm really not a "work ahead" kinda gal. (wish I were but...) Of all of my DT's, BBTB2 is the most difficult and time consuming for me (but also one of the most rewarding). I've been on the team for a long time and have been asked to do some of the same challenges over and over. Since I really put my heart into them, sometimes I just can't come up with a new idea. I just can't get past a favorite project from before, or like last week, I wrack my brain and come up with something, and it just doesn't pass muster. I've been having a bit of a crafting crisis lately and rather than post something I'm ashamed of, I just can't post at all. Sorry, it's a matter of personal pride in my work, especially if it's for a DT. I really appreciate the fact that probably the majority of my followers come here for Cricut inspiration, so that's a bit of an added pressure. Sometimes though, I want to try new things, explore different mediums. I hope I don't let you down.
I'm also entering this in the Moving Along With the Times Too Cute to Spook Challenge, the Scrapilicious USA Halloweenie Challenge, and Crafty Creations Halloween Spooks.
