Halloween Time Challenge 145.

Hi There,
over at it is design team sister Peachy's turn to choose the challenge and this time around she has picked "black magic" no I don't mean the box of chocolates either lol. We have to produce a card or project with a Halloween theme.

Now this is a first for me, I have made a 8 sided cup filled with a sachet of hot chocolate, a bag of chocolate shapes and a stirrer with a happy balloon flying witch. Now truth be known I saw this on the TV and just had to have a go at one.

I used heavy black card as the cup but added Kaisercraft 13th hour paper which I inked. The base is made up with a burnt orange paper and yet more black. I used my Cricut to cut the Boo and SB dies to cut the top of the stirrer. The bag of sweets are from Marks and Spencers and came with a plastic spider. I also added a hot chocolate drink to the cup too. The handle is strong enough to lift the cup up totally filled.
Now its your turn to give it ago, show us what you have come up with for Halloween.

Happy Crafting

DH thinks this photo is more atmospheric, what do you think?

Autumn Abundance Challenge 144

This time around over at it's Marge's turn to choose the challenge and its another great one. This time around you have to make a card/project using "Fall" items we see everywhere right now. Things such as leaves, acorns, fruits of the season, pumpkins etc.

I decided to make a card this time around using a sentiment stamp as the focal point and added lots of leaves around it.

The card is 6x6 and a placed a sheet of paper I have had in my stash for ages, its from a paper pack and I made the strip and the mats for the sentiments from little bits I had left over from the pack. The leaves have been stamped with various sets I have then hand cut. All have been raised on Pinflare glue.

Now pop over if you haven't already to see what the other girls have made then link up your own project with us.

Mum's Birthday Card

Here is another card made using the sweet bunting banner my good friend sent me for my birthday. This time I used it on a card to celibrate my Mum's birthday yesterday.

I made a 6x6 card blank and using all papers from Kaisercraft and this lovely P.G. tip Bestie I created this card. My mum is what we call a "tea belly" hardly ever drinks coffee and almost always has to be her favorite tea "P.G.Tips.
I trimmed up a little off the side of the card to add the stripe paper, the flowers on the bottom left are raised up on foam dots over the top of the same flat paper. I ran the top left and bottom right through an embossing folder and inked with marmalade.
Hope you like it.
