It's Halloween Time at Dude Time Doodles

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well on this fab Wednesday.  Love Wednesdays as it marks the half way point of my working week.  Only two more days to the weekend.  Wednesday also sees the start of a new challenge over at Dude Time Doodles.
Our theme for this week is:


Create and upload any project that follows the theme.  Remember that you can use humour, innuendo, be a little sarcastic, naughty just as long as your project is Masculine.
The winner of this weeks challenge will win a prize from our sponsor Patties Creations.

There are some fabulous images at the Dude Time Doodles store and I used Pumpkin Head Hal for my project.

I decided to make a twisted easel card.  It is ages since I made one of these but do like them.  The image was coloured in promarkers and I distressed inked the edges using my distress inks.  The large pumpkin image on the base and both sentiments are also from Dude Time Doodles.  I won the netting fabric in some candy from Sassy and thought it looked a bit cobwebby.  The tiny pumpkins and spiders were some stickers from Tesco.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Craftymess - Anything goes
Fussy and Fancy - Easel card
Hooked on Craft - Halloween
Cards for Men - Orange and Black
Crafty Catz - Easel card
Crafts 4 Eternity - Ugly Bug Ball
