Creak....groan....slither...bump.....scream.....what is it?  It's.....HALLOWEEN!  Now That's Scary!  And that's our theme for our current Cards in Envy Challenge!

Yes, we want to see your most thrilling, scary or fun, fabulous Halloween card...but remember... it must be flat enough to fit in an envelope for mailing with no extra postage AND it must be an A2 card (4.25"x5.5").

Our Designers ramped up their  craftiness to bring you some spooky, ooky, scary, eerie, fun Halloween inspiration...

Danie wishes you "A Merry Halloween" but don't let that sweet sentiment fool you!  Creepy Jack-o-Lanterns and a black cat are sure to scare you on a dark Halloween night!

Debbie, Scrap Enabler 
Oooh! Arsenic Poison! If you're not careful, someone might try to put it in your food and that's scary!  Debbi's fabulous card design leads you through a paper maze right to the frightful warning!

Boo! Lurking ghosts! Now that is scary.  Denise's black card with the stark white creates a spooky background for this super scary ghost!

Karen's Halloween card warns's plain CREEPY!  Lots of fun and scary halloween images can be found in this card...spiders, bats and a general creepy vibe!

Kristie's card brings to life a fear for many...SPIDERS!  Cobwebs and the crawly creatures lurk about on this card that says BOO as a warning to keep you away!

Lisa conjured up a frightful card featuring a crow, tombstone and bat.  Definitely "spooky" while encouraging you to "eat, drink and be scary!"

Marilyn's haunting scene is full of scary things...cobweb, ghost, tombstone, spooky fence and trees plus a big bright moon that  casts an eerie glow on the entire scene!

  Patricia, Thinking of Inking
Patricia's adorable Halloween black cat wears a scary witch hat and tells you to "Eat, Drink and be Scary".   A fun, cute and "scary" card all in one!

  Sandy (Challenge Host), Sandy's Crafty Creations
Sandy's cards is not for the faint of heart....evoking thoughts of Edgar Allen Poe and other things that go bump in the night-- a ghostly, creepy skull and evil spider! SCARY!!
