Trick or Treat!

I managed to get some crafting time this afternoon whilst hubby was watching football.  I made these goody bags for my three boys for halloween.  The images and sentiment are a free set from Scribbled Kidz which will be available until Wednesday.  The photo is not so great but the haziness maybe adds to the spooky idea.  The images have been coloured with promarkers and the backing papers are from Stampin Up.

A Card for my Niece

I've made this card for my Niece whose birthday it is tomorrow.  I think I'm safe posting tonight because I don't think she follows my blog :)

The cupcake in the middle is a decoupage set from Craft UK and they really do well for last minute cards.  It's actually an easel card but I couldn't get a good photo of it in the time I had so I just got the front.  The spotty paper was from some freebies that came with a magazine.  Hopefully, she'll like it.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Fussy and Fancy - Anything Goes
Fat Pages & Cards with Attitude – Anything Goes

I've coloured the image with promarkers, the backing paper is from stampin up and the mesh ribbon was in my stash.  I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

It's time again for another challenge over at Digi Galore and here's my card for the DT.

The theme is Halloween and the sponsors are the ever-wonderful Bugaboo.  We have a great prize of 7 digis for one lucky winner.  Pop over to the main post to get all the details and to see the rest of my teamies ideas.

I've used a few images from Bugaboo - Silhouette Skull Tree, Halloween Brat Dracula & Halloween Brat Pumpkin (on the inside).  The Skull Tree was printed on acetate, with hindsight I'd print it bigger, but we live and learn.  The other images are coloured with promarkers.  The Cobwebs and spider were cut out on the Cricut from the Mini Monsters cartridge.    The backing paper is from Stampin Up.  Here's a picture of the inside:

I hope to see you joining us over at Digi Galore over the next two weeks.
