Challenge #102 ~ Halloween

Hello my friends and wonderful followers!  I have some news that I need to share.  This challenge will be the last one for CC&CC in 2015.  Some of you are aware that I am VERY busy at the moment!  I am getting ready for an estate sale of the contents of my family home, packing, packing, packing and selling the home, and at the same time doing a "long distance" build of a new home in Oregon.  THEN, I have to move to OR from AZ.  I have so much on my plate that I need to deal with, that I have decided it is necessary to take a blog break until sometime after the beginning of next year.  But when the time comes to return, it will be Chocolate, Coffee & Card Challenges and business as usual!

Speaking of business as usual, lets get to it!
For a lot of you Autumn is upon us.  This is my favorite time of year for so many reasons.  One of the fun things of this season is Halloween.  Fun for children as well as adults - we get to dress up like we did when we were children!  Time to create a card that is full of scary ghouls and things that go bump in the night!

Our FAB sponsor Rick St. Dennis has some of the most awesome and out of the ordinary images; especially for Halloween!

Rick does the most incredible art work.  Be sure to go have a look at his amazing digis.  Our lucky random winner will will receive their choice of either 2 free digis, or a discount coupon to their shop.  So get crafting and join in the fun and a chance to win this great prize.

The gals have made some FAB cards using Rick's digis!  Have a look and get inspired to do your own.  We can't wait to see them!

I want to thank my WONDERFUL DT for being so dedicated to CC&CC and for all of their support to me.  Ladies, you are THE BEST!  I look forward to returning in 2016 and hopefully with all of YOU!

Happy Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas to all of you and a very 
Hugs, Joanne
