CAS-ual Fridays

Yay for Fridays!
This week's CAS-ual Friday challenge was my least favorite though. *pout*

I LOVE celebrating Halloween (we call it Samhain here) and we usually celebrate in a big way around our house. We like to do lots of nature inspired craft projects to remind us of the end of the harvest season.
So why don't I like this week's challenge?

Because ORANGE is my all time favorite color and we were asked to create a Halloween project that didn't use ANY orange! *sniff sniff* 
Not one speck. Nada. Zilch.
It was SO HARD!
 I'm not joking here friends. 
This was not easy for me.

Our sponsor is Clear Dollar Stamps and I think they have a really amazing sale going on right now.

In my card above, the skeleton, bats, and the spiderwebs are Tim Holtz stamps, the sentiment is PTI.
I really hope you'll join us for this week's challenge because I can't wait to see what you come up with. You are all going to make me seem like a crybaby, aren't you?! 

Thanks for stopping by,

Hahaha! You're not a crybaby AT ALL!! I love orange, too, but I love what you did with the challenge even MORE! Those images are spectacular - that skeleton is awesome!! For someone who hated this challenge, you surely knocked this one out of the proverbial park, girlie - this is amazing!!
