Zombies and Betty's Birthday card

We're battling down the hatches for tomorrow, Hurricane Ophelia is coming to visit - she's supposed to weaken to a storm by the time she gets to us so we'll see how that goes.  Needless to say our weathermen are beside themselves with excitement - something different to the usual rain or showers forecast!   Having said that, it's been a lovely calm day today, I actually managed to get out to the garden and get some cutting done and  pots cleared for winter.

I'm just scraping in nearly on time for my Naughty or Nice card reminder ;)
This month's is a spooky theme - hope you'll play along and link your card over at the NoN blog

My stamps are oldies from The Alley Way Stamps, now sadly closed.  Coloured with watercolour pencils and popped up on foam pads.

Other challenges:

And this one's just a wee quickie for my SIL.  I've used this cute Penny Black stamp and my never-ending pink Birthday DP stack.  
I added sparkle to his apron with my clear glitter pen, and then clear gloss and lots of glitter to the icing.  I used a snippet of the darker pink cardstock for the sentiment - it was a bit lost in the snazzy DP but looked better when I cut an extra set and stuck it on top.

I love both your cards. The Halloween just made me laugh. The image is funny, but the sentiment is even funnier. Your birthday card is sweet, and I'm sure your SIL will love it.

It's a really pretty and made a very feminine card and perfect for our Think Pink theme at Allsorts, many thanks for joining in. Your first card is such fun as well.

Two brilliant cards, I love the sentiment on the first and the images are fantastic - that bat's face! I'm here to thank you for sharing at Cardz 4 Guyz but popping another hat on for a minute (not a witch's hat though) the card would also fit our "Zombies" challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers

I heard about H. Ophelia coming over to Ireland - so sorry to hear about the loss of life. Hope your power is up! It's been a strange year, that's for sure. But anyhoo... your adorable Halloween card is wonderful. We appreciate you playing in our challenge Retro Rubber during this time and hope you will be back in our gallery soon.

Sooooooo cute! Hope you were OK in the end? Mother Nature is a real BITCH WITH ATTITUDE at times! - Sigh.

Lovely to see you in the Playground as well.

OMG I have wanted this stamp set for EVER. I love the sentiment, it is a long running joke in my house that I would totally do this to my Hubby... I love the background splatter you have created, making the card feel a bit graveyard grungey! Thanks for playing with us at Retro Rubber. Claire DT
