Well I've got the pumpkins to carve this afternoon so hopefully I'll post some pictures of them tomorrow! I had to get Adam a new costume as his cute spider one is way too small for him, so a trip to Tescos got us a very cute vampire outfit! He's going to look so cute, so what that it in mind I've decided to go with a Vampire pumpking and a Spider!

Look what I've got!
My wonderful husband subscribed to Papercraft Inspirations Magazine for me and the subscription offer at the time was this yummy forever friends celebration set. It came in the post yesterday and I can't quite bring myself to take it out of the box! it looks so nice. On top of that are two more Forever Friends stamps I picked up when I went to hobbycraft on Sunday. I only went for a browse and ended up buying these! Its the first time I've seen them in there! This is the first card I made with my new stamp. The inspiration was taken from one of Michelle's cards. I've used my Whispers pens and paintbrush to colour the image, but its not quite right. I just dont seem to be able to get the colour right. Any handy tips for colouring these gorgeous bears would be gratefully received! The only other things I have are my watercolour pencils or ink pads and I dont seem to have the right colours in either.I've used the same colour scheme on this one but tried to go with a slightly different layout. The background card is part of the Bon Bon Trio by Doodlebug, I think its called Sandcastle but it matches the colour of the bear lovely.A couple of weeks ago I took delivery of some more Doodlebug papers, Ribbon and card to use for my Christmas cards. I picked up a set of the 99p stamps by Dovecraft which is what I've used to create these two Christmas Cards. I've added to touch of Glamour Dust to the santa hat to give it a bit of sparkle.
