card and collage

Hello Everyone. Here I am a bit late today but we did take advantage of the sunny weather and went for a walk. It is the annual scooter rally here in Bridlington this weekend so there are thousands of people and hundreds of scooters all over the place. The smell of the fuel they use is heady and takes me back many years to when I was a teenager. Thank you for visiting Jumbled Crafts and for all the wonderful comments that I receive.

At Collage Obsession this week we are asked to do something Eerie and there is a photograph of Boris Karloff as Frankenstein that you can use.

My collages always seem eerie--I think I go into Eerie mode when I see the word collage. Heaven knows where this one took me.

The theme at Speed Craft Challenge this week is Halloween. I would like to thank the team for choosing my tag as the winner there last week

I have made a card to give to the children a few doors away together with some goodies I bought today
Stripes using Promarkers, Nestie shapes and a hand drawn spider for the medallion, a bit of orange ribbon behind it, Distress ink edge and white pen for hair and teeth. Forgot to say I punched out a couple of flowers as a bit of extra interest. It all took just 10 minutes--not my finest make but fun for the kiddies who will be receiving it I hope.

This is what I got ready before I started

This is after 5 minutes and the finished card took the 10 minutes to make. 

Hope you have all been enjoying what ever you were doing today

Love Chrissie x
