A Spooky Challenge over at Bugaboo


Oh yeah, it's challenge time once again at Catch the Bug, the Bugaboo based Challenge blog, and this one is right up my street. It's to create a 3D item/card ready for Halloween. It could be a treat holder, a stepper card, easel, decoupage - anything as long as it has a 3D element. I have made one of my treat holders again which encloses around a Freddo bar but I'm sure other items would fit too.


I've used the Mummy image from the new release from yesterday which is a FANTASTIC collection of Bobblehead Halloween characters. If you missed the release news, check out THIS post and visit the Freebie section over at the BUGABOO SHOP to pick up one for free. Remember, if you use a Bugaboo digi image in your project for the challenge you get TWO entries in the draw.


I used my PTI stamps to create the background on the orange (SU Pumpkin Pie) panels. It's really simple but I think it's a great one to use for many occasions as it adds a non distracting background when you want the image to do the talking. The sentiment was printed on the computer and punched with the SU window punch. It was printed on white card but looked too stark so I scribbled over it with my Blush Promarker.


So are you inspired to join in? Well if you do, then you have the chance to win up to 7 Bugaboo images. For all the details you need, visit the CATCH THE BUG blog. If you like Halloween as much as I do and want something ready for Trick or Treaters, then please check out my Blog Candy HERE. You have the chance to win all 7 Goofy Ghost digi images from Bugaboo and a load of pieces ready to make some treat holders to give your little spooky visitors. As there's only a few more days left, I am going to ease the rules and enter everyone who comments on the post into the draw - NO NEED TO FOLLOW THE RULES OUTLINED. Just one comment could win you a batch of things. Go ahead, have a go!

I'm going to enter this project into the following challenges too:
Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
Ai Factory - Anything Goes
Stampin' Royalty - Anything But A Card
Stamps R Us - Halloween

Oh I do love it Paul ! This looks so cool and I adore the image, so funny ! I have got a question, it might sound stupid but as you know I am french and there are some expressions I am not familiar with yet, so what does it mean when you put TFS at the end of a comment ? Thank you ! Lots of smiles from Catherine
