Two (or four) of the 12 Days

Here are two pieces I made for the 12 Days of Halloween at Simply Betty.
This first one is an ATC using a freebie Betty gave away on the Simply Betty Stamps PCP group, and papers from the Poison Punch set at Crafty Chaos Designs.

These are the challenges I'd like to enter with this one:
Crazy Challenges - scary lady plus sketch
Simply Betty 12 Days of Halloween - Day 10, Ten ghouls a-groaning. I hadn't realised before, but ghouls are essentially what we think of as zombies. George A. Romero - Night of the Living Dead - called the creatures in the film ghouls, although they became the prototype for our modern zombies. So, in this piece, I have 1 zombie ghoul and I've included the number ten in the sentiment. It also makes me smile that I could enter this one into days 7 (seven pumpkins) and 4 (four skulls) as well, although I have already entered both of those.
ATC Challenges - anything goes or vintage (I'll try to do a vintage one next)
Gingerloft Challenges - Halloween or Fall
The Crafty Pad - Halloween
My Time Made Easy Pretty Palettes - Pretty Palette 32, black, orange, purple, green
Creative Stamp Friends - Halloween
Going Grey with Scrap Creations - going digi
StempelSonne - Halloween
TimbroScrapMania - Halloween
Delightful Sketches - purple orange green black
Aud Sentiments - make us laugh
Paper-Crafting Journey - use a digi

And this second creation uses five Steampunk images, all from Simply Betty Stamps and a graveyard scene I created around them.

These are the challenges I'd like to enter with this one:
Simply Betty 12 Days 0f Halloween - Day 5, five scary spooks
Take A Word - black and white
Hooked On Crafts - something spooky
Crafty Boots - Halloween
Art With No Boundaries - Halloween
Pollycraft Challenges - spooky goings on
Magical Monday Challenges - Halloween
Simon Says Stamp and Show - just one colour
Simply Create - shades of black
The Stamp Man - Night Time
Gingersnap Creations Challenges - 124, black and grey
Crafty Sentiments - no designer paper
Little Miss Muffet - clouds
