IDIC Forum Halloween Madness Crop - first two projects

I'm having a great time at the IDIC Forum crop. We've made two projects so far and I thought I would share them. I'm not sure how long I'm going to make it up.

Our first project was a matchbook candy holder. I used a double sided sheet of Basic Grey. This is the front side. The images are from my stash. I stamped them a while ago and didn't write down where I stamped them from. The one with the hippo is for my brother-in-law to hold his gift card for Christmas.
Here's the inside. The sentiment is from a Cardmaking and Papercraft freebie. It turns out these will also hold gift cards, so I'm adding them to my Christmas pile.
I'd like to enter this project in the following challenges:
1. Cards for Men #22 - anything goes
2. Bah! Humbug! #42 - presents - I'm not sure if these count, but they are presents.
3. Crafts and Me #16 - make a Christmas gift

Our second project was to make a card using a freebie provided by Robyn - this sweet scarecrow. I got out my DCWV fall stacks and went to town. Here's the front:
Here's the inside:
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Papertake Weekly Challenge - sparkly and bright
2. Crafty Creations #91 - Halloween or perhaps autumn
3. Polka Doodles #43 - autumn

Don't forget my blog candy!

Happy Crafting!
