Simply Betty 12 Days of Halloween is Back!!!


I had so much fun playing along in this challenge last year and was very happy to see it back again this year. Each day there is a new challenge to play along with. I love, love, love Halloween so these challenges are so much fun. It's not too late if you want to play along, info is here.

On the first day of Halloween......My true love gave to me an owl in a rotten oak tree. I decided to use Zombie Christian for this challenge. The tree is a die cut using one of my favorite Sizzix dies and the papers are from K&Co. and The Paper Studio. The grave border punch is from Martha Stewart. I have three organizers full of Halloween papers, embellishments and ribbons. And almost no owls! Honestly, I think I have more Halloween supplies than Christmas supplies. It took me a while to find an owl to use and finally found it in the last bin in a pack of K& Co. Halloween stickers.

So that's my first day of Halloween Challenge card! Thanks for stopping by today.
