I am soo glad Friday has arrived so I can show you what I have created as a Guest Designer for the Stampin for the Weekend Challenge which this week is 'Halloween' and is being sponsored by
Donna is giving away this fantastic CD to the winner this week. If you havent seen her CD's before check them out Here you wont be disappointed, Donna's papers are gorgeous.
I have never made Halloween things before and I guess you will be able to tell I had great fun and maybe got a little bit carried away!!!!!!!!!
Sending Halloween cards in the UK is not the norm, but every year we have a couple of little chinese girls trick or treating in their withches outfits and they are so cute, so I thought I would make some special treat holders for them.
The treat holders were made from patterns which I got from Martha Stewart.com and altered just a bit. I found the gorgeous little girl witch at Digital Ink Co. called I Wanna Go Too isnt she just adorable. I coloured her with Copics and attached her to my small treat holders.
The sitting witch, and ghost are from Victoria Case.
Sweets are from Sainsbury's and I am going to try and be good and not pinch them!
I then got completely into the Halloween 'Spirit' and made a card anyway.
Once again I used 'I wanna go too' and the backing papers and insert are from Designer Extreme III. the added cat and bat I cut out from another sheet of Donna's backing paper.
The haunted house is another digi image by Victoria Case and the Boo is Digital Ink.
I have to show you this last photo as I had this great idea that the treats would look really good if I took the photos with a lighted pumpkin, so I made my Baby Boy (he's 24) carve a pumpkin for me, which looked brilliant in the dark, but the treats didnt show up as well as I hoped, but after all his work I felt he deserved the recognition.
Thanks for looking and I am really looking forward to seeing what you all come up with for the challenge.
I going to enter the card into the The Play Date Cafe Challenge which is a colour challenge and the holders into the Saturday Spolight Challenge which is treat holders and the The Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge which is Orange and 1 other colour.
