Halloween Sweet Treats

It's reminder time over at Bestieschallenge. and we are still enjoying our theme of "spirits bright" which can either be for Christmas or Halloween! You can of course do your own thing as we are a Anything Goes challenge.

Here is what I have made,

I have used this cute little witch found here at the My Bestie Shop she is called Broom Hilda Boo there are lots of other image's there to choose from too.
I coloured her in using my Promarker Pens and matted her on to a Spellbinder mat. The greeting is from a sheet of Graphic45 paper and I added a couple of mini bats too.

The sweet treats are sitting in a little basket I saved from a gift which housed mini soaps. I painted it with mat black by Kaisercraft then added a Verve boarder strip. Then I added tiny dots of perfect pearls in orange,green and purple. Once dry I stuffed in some tissue paper and topped it off with a bag of M&S Halloween chocolate balls covered in foil with either pumpkin faces or eyeballs.

Thanks for stopping by again today, if you like what you've seen please leave me a comment.  Don't forget there is still time to join in the fun and get your chance to bag a prize or two.

Welcome to the world


Today I am sharing a New Baby card which I made for my friend to give her long awaited Grandson. He was born yesterday 8Lb 4oz and mother and son doing well. I didn't want to share till the happy event happened.

This card is a big A5 size in a bright white card base and on to that you can see I have added baby blue polka dots. Then I cut out that beautiful white frame. I used this fab stamp from Verve along with the cute Emery Plain Jane stamp which is on offer at the moment for under a $. As you can see I paper pieced him.
I stamped and cut out the baby in the basket and various other images from a Sue Willson die set called Pitter Patter. The addition of a few gems some lace, buttons and a bow and we were done.
My friend wrote her own verse for the inside of the card (something she likes to do) which was lovely.

Thanks for stopping by today, leave a word or two as its nice to know what you think.

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.


Well today is a special one as I've been asked to join the fun Design Team over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends The blog has gone back to the original owner after a well cared for break by Lynn.

We have two great sponsors this time around and I have chosen a image from Fabrika Fantasy.com called the dancing-squirrel isn't she so cute. They have generously given the winner 3 digis from their store.

For this card I have removed a slice off the front panel so the image sits above. The card is a 5x7 bright white card stock.
The papers are from my stash, I have had them for quite some time and they came out of a magazine so cost me nothing! I covered the inside back with the owl paper and the front with leaf vellum. As you can see I have cut her out and matted her on to a stitched mat in a pumpkin colour.
The flowers are from my stash and I added a couple of brads to the centers to pull all the colours together. I added a few open leaves and a button along with a few drops of stickles glue.

The sentiment strip is raised up and the sentiment itself is one from Verve from their Simply Amazing set .

Here is a little side on view.

I do hope you will come on over and join in the fun, we are as always a "anything goes" challenge so come and share your makes! Pop on over to visit with the other girl on their blogs to see what great things they have made.

I am entering this card in the following challenges

Spirts Bright

Hello there,

Today I'd like to share a little card I made for my Mum this last Christmas. Yes I know it's well past but realized I never got to show it, so here goes. Also being the first of the month it is new challenge time over at Besties challenge blog and for the month of October we have a theme of "spirits bright" now this could be taken as Halloween spirits or Christmas so as you see I've gone for the later. You don't have to follow the theme as we are a "anything goes" challenge.

This cute card I made using a dusty pink card blank, adding this lovely dotted paper after I had stitched around the edges using the green thread. I put down a simple mat for her again picking up some green and I inked the edge of the top one with red. I used this darling Christmas-bestie-img380 which I coloured in using Promarker pens. I added her to a scalloped oval in a darker shade to pop her out. 
Then to finish off I added a couple of Christmas trees which my friend Sandy sent me and a few snowflakes and the sentiment I printed out.

Thanks for stopping by today. Don't forget to share your makes with us as prizes can be won.
