Boo-Frickity-Hoo


Hello everyone....hope all is well with you!!! We have had some beautiful fall days here...the temps are in the 70's (a real cold wave for Central Texas!!). We went to Plano yesterday to see the house that my niece rented....she has a job now but not sure of the start date. She will find out all the details tomorrow....yeaaaa!!! It's been a crazy month for her but I think it will all come together soon!!! We will miss them and the 5 little pups when they move out....I may have to get a dog so I don't go into withdrawal...LOL!!!! Anyway.....

It'd my turn to host the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast this week and guess what...it's #400 challenge!!! Yup....we have had challenges on Splitcoast for almost 8 years...WOW!!! We should have a drum roll or something a little festive to announce the challenge.... my challenge is to "cut it up!!

You can:
1. Stamp an image and cut it into squares, circles, rectangles, etc. for a blocked background.
2. Color an image ( it can be stamped or a digi) and cut it up into squares for a blocked background.
3. You can cut the image in a random pattern for a crazy quilt pattern
4. You can even cut the image into a quilt pattern
5. The cut up image can be used for a background or for the main image ...I used mine for a background.
6. There is only one rule....you have to use an image of some kind, not patterned paper!!!
7. Have fun!!!!

My card features stamps from Rubbernecker....the bat image from Rubbernecker's Halloween Set 1 and the Haunted House were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black, colored with Copics, cut into squares, and adhered to black card stock. The little Dragon Boy was colored with Copics, cut out, and adhered with foam dots. The sentiment is from the Halloween Set 3 and the twine finishes it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Come and Get It Challenge - Halloween
2. Dream Valley Challenge - Halloween
3. Eclectic Ellapu - Halloween
4. No Matter Which Challenge - Halloween
5. 2 Sisters Challenge - Cute and Creepy

Thanks for stopping by....I hope you have time to join us on Splitcoast for this weeks challenge!!! I would love to see what you create!!!!
