Halloween card for my eldest & a cupcake card.

Hi all, just a quick post tonight before an early bath so we can get cosy to watch The Middle on Sky 1 - have you seen it??? We find it sooo funny.

Thought I had better get my finger out and make another halloween card and diaper fold pouch to put some sweets in for my eldest - the youngest is sorted - except we need to refresh the sweets - erm don't know who ate them - cough!!

Sorry for the terrible photo - it was a bit of a nightmare to take - I have die cut a circle out and then restuck it onto the inside -the spider and vampire diecuts are MME as is the paper - I have some new stickles that I have put around the die cut circle - but they havent shown up too well in the photo. Hope you get an idea of how it looks.

I would like to enter this into craftfairies - die cut/Halloween challenge.

Lastly this is a card I made for my next door neighbour to say thank you for making my youngests birthday cake:

I have used the Magnolia cupcake stamp coloured with promarkers and also popped little beads on the top and also coloured the lovely chef in promarkers. The paper was in my stash I think sent from Sarah aka Rainmac and then put organza ribbon at the side.

I hope it is ok to enter this into the fab n funky challenge - yummy, yummy, yummy.

Thanks for looking xx.

  14. Hi Ali, thanks for the comment.
    No, sadly and worryingly the smell is still lingering. The car looks (or should that be looked) like it had been valetted but when you open the door it still stinks like a dishwasher that hasn't been put on for a couple of days. I think there might be something dead hiding out in there. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww! x

  15. your Halloween card is fab Ali and your Tilda is so pretty and girly I love the ribbon...hope you enjoyed your bath oh and your programme of course
