Awesome Candy Alert!!

Been round a few blogs that are advertising this candy this evening soooo just had to go and have a nosey for myself.  There is tons of fabulous stuff HERE.  It's the Kort And Godt's blog and it's well worth a visit.  They are closing the candy on 30th November so you've got loads of time to enter....and I'm sure you'll think it's well worth it when you do.  I've got my fingers, toes and even my eyes crossed for this one! lol

The Witching Hour

Morning all, it's lovely and bright here today...a bit like my card lol.  Took my inspiration from the challenge over at Cards For Men where the colours are Black and Orange.

I love Halloween, especially when the kids come round all dressed up.  I've been busy making and freezing cake pops this week, bought one of those new silicone baking trays - it's taking a bit of practice but most of them came out the right shape lol.  They're still to be decorated but will do that nearer the time.  Pumpkins are bought and in storage ready for carving and the decorations have been dug out of the cupboard! 

The rest of my day will be busy today, got a few cards to make.....good job my new Wellington DVD came, think it's going to be getting some battering today!  Enjoy, whatever you're all up to xx

Falling For Autumn

Evening All, hope you've all had a good weekend! It's been pretty quiet here, bingo Friday night (with a nice wee win) and a lazy day yesterday. Had a birthday card to make for nephew's G/F and found these lovely papers in a set from Shabby Princess and knew the perfect stamp to go with them. Just love the colours in this set.

Been to the cinema today, watched Taken 2 and then Paranorman, enjoyed them both and Paranorman had some really funny LOL bits in it! Saw the trailer for Nativity 2 as well....and it also looks as funny as the first one. Hope whatever you've been up to that you've had fun too! xx
