Sneak peek 2 and a Halloween card

I'm still catching up with stuff after my holiday but am gradually getting round to visiting you all. Thanks for all your lovely comments, you certainly loved the granny card and welcome to my 2 new followers.

Here's a second sneak peek at the new SWALK 2 collection from Crafter's Companion. If you are looking for the blog hop you can find it here. Yesterday's card featured Granny and today it's Grandpa's turn. The papers and border are all from the SWALK 2 CD. I cut up one of the borders and mounted it on card to make the squares. I used the MS zigzag border punch on the border.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Creations Show a number
CES Male Birthday card
Cards for men Happy Birthday
Cupcake Boys and their toys

I have a friend who loves Halloween so I always make her a Halloween card. This week there are a lot of Halloween themed challenges and this card fits them all. I am so grateful to Paula at Pollycraft for giving away this fab freebie a couple of weeks ago. I bought a pack pf mixed charms from Quixotic and was lucky enough to get this fab bat charm as part of the pack. I used Crafter's Companions spray and sparkle on the image. It gives a lovely sparkly effect to the image, which doesn't really show on the photo.
