Happy Halloween

It doesn't seem a year ago that I took the girls out trick or treating! It's a sign of old age you know when the years go by quickly, either that or a sign that you lead a humdrum boring life where every week is like another!

Anyway, the girls have decided the don't want to go out this year. I am so going to miss that round, it was one of the highlights of the year! What is better than a couple of hours walking from door to door in the freezing cold? But we always miss most of the callers because we are out there ourselves so this year the girls decided that they want to be at home to greet callers with spooky faces and lots of sweets. We have decorated the hall with unimaginable horrors and will be doing the same outside before tonight.

As they are not getting their "treats" I have of course compiled a selection for them. To go with the goodie bags I made this card for them.

K&Co Light Ideas Halloween. Quickutz Silhouette Haunted House, Karen Foster Halloween paper, and black and green Bazzill. Fibre is Basic Grey Mellow, ribbon is Doodlebug Ric Rac. Eyelets from We R Memory Keepers. I think that's it.


I had an order in from Lush (the makers of the most lucious bath products) and instead of the normal void fill packaging they used popcorn! What a fantastic idea! I always use environmentally friendly void fill but this really is the ultimate! Not sure how cost friendly it is though and I had noticed that the actual product prices had increased quite dramatically since my last order, so this is obviously where they recoup the costs, but certainly to be applauded in terms of "making a difference".

Moving swiftly from popcorn to Daring Card Makers. There's a little mini challenge there so I decided to have a go. This was the challenge:

The ingredients you need to use on your cards are:
4 brads/eyelets
3 circles
2 rectangles
and lashings of ribbon!

Oh crap! Just seen it says 4 brads/eyelets, I only used 3. Oh well, I made up for it by using 4 circles instead of three. ;o)

Extra Hour in Bed...

Well that didn't happen for me. I have the most annoying cough going and finding it hard to breathe when I lay down, so I got up early. But the extra hour is still there of course so I decided to make another Christmas card.
This one is kinda cute I think :o)
