Halloween fun and games!

Simply Betty Challenges are having a Halloween card-making challenge in which the DT will pick the cutest, the funniest and the most original entries to win. My "cute" cards are not really up to scratch, so I decided to make a couple that I hope will be suitable for the funny or original categories.

My first card uses Valentine Emo Christian from Simply Betty and papers from the Eye of Newt set at Crafty Chaos Designs. I'd like to enter this one into the following other challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - sketch
Fab n Funky - monochromatic
Creative Inspiration - use text somewhere other than your sentiment
Top Tip Tuesday - masculine
Cards for Men - anything goes
Sketchy Colours - shades of blue
Hooked on Crafts - things with wings
Do You Stack Up - man or boy

And my second card uses the cute little kitty from the Witchy Wednesday stamp at Simply Betty. I'd like to enter this one into the following other challenges:
Triplicate Trials Tuesday - sketch + red, eggplant, taupe + fun and games theme
Making Halloween Cards - black cats and or banners
Pile It On - sweet treats
Craft Your Passion - sarcastic or funny sentiments
Ooh La La Creations - no patterned paper
Crafty Creations - animals
Totally Gorjuss - cute and cuddly animals
Crafty Emma's Store - banners/bunting
