Too Cute To Spook!?

Morning all, wonder what this week will bring.  Been invited to a Halloween Party next weekend and as everyone seems to be doing Halloween cards at the moment and our latest challenge at Stampin For The Weekend is Something Spooky I thought I'd get in on the act.  We were requested to use an LOTV image if we had one and as I'd just bought this one which I've been after for ages I thought the timing worked quite well.  I'm giving my card to the party hosts to say thanks for the invite, I'll try and get plenty of pics and post a few on here next weekend!

Recipe :
Backin Paper - Bearly Mine Designs - Freebie
Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug Skeleton Scroll sanded.

Well I've got here at last.  I kept meaning to get this posted and kept forgetting to get a picture.  I've eventually got round to getting one so hope it's worth the wait!  Some of it is freebies that I know I'll never use and some if it are bits I've bought and again never used.  Not going to ask you to be a follower...I know I'm guilty of not getting around everyone's blogs with things the way they are these days but I would like you to leave me a comment so I can pick the winner (I'm not too technical with those linky things lol) and I'd be grateful if you would pop a picture and link on your sidebar of your blog (if you have one - again another reason why the comments are so important - means those without a blog have as much chance!).  Will leave it running until Friday 22nd November when I will then put the names in a hat and draw a winner.  Good Luck!

Candy Consists Of :
Bottle Of Stickles
6 Packs of Mini Trimits Buttons - Various Shapes And Colours
Fairies Of The Season Stamps

Baby It's Cold Outside!

Morning All, hasn't the weather has really changed now? We've had a plumber in at work all week changing radiator valves and fitting a new boiler....great week he picked, my poor wee fingers are finding it hard to find the right keys as it's so cold!!

That's why my card is apt again today. I used Mollie Winter from our sponsers The Stamp Fairy over at Stampin For The Weekend. Our challenge this week is an Anything Goes Challenge so I'm looking forward to seeing all your fabulous entries. I coloured her with Promarkers and added a bit of Liquid Pearls in white opal to resemble snow and also for the fur on her jacket (see close up for effect :-) ).

Anyway off to wrap my hands around the kettle and see if I can get warmed up.

Change of Season

Hello!  Hope you're all ok today.  I've had hubby at home over the last couple of weeks as he had a bit of an argument with a forklift!  Thankfully it was just bruising and he's fit to go back to work, unfortunately there isn't any work for him at the moment so this change in the weather to dull and darker is suiting my mood again this week  :-(

I've managed to get a few cards done though so that's a bonus at least  lol.  The card today is for a friends birthday.  I loved these papers from Nitwit Collections and thought they fitted the image really well, I love the Autumn colours that are starting to come on the trees, there are some beauties enroute to work.

I'll be back on Friday with another post and as I keep promising candy I'll also make sure the details are added for that too!
