and a Vampire! well its supposed to be! it does look more like a vampire in the daylight.
And for my gorgeous little Vampire! How cute is he? I know I am a little biassed cos he's mine!
I told him he was supposed to look scary!
So far we've only had a couple of kids round trick or treating and I have a great big bowl of sweets sat by the front door too! I have been complimented on my pumpkins though which I'm quite pleased about!
I think I will do a little party next year for the kids (adults)!

The floral paper is part of a DCWV scrapbook stack and the yellow card is bazzill. I've added glamour dust to some of the flowers, Fifi and the number 2. This is the first time I've used my Glamour Dust and I'm really pleased with the effect. Although it's not one of my best cards, I'm sure Sophie will love it.
I would like to thank Erin for passing on two awards to meI will have a look around later to see who I can pass this onto and catch up on some blogs at the same time!
I have received this award before and have passed it on already, but I'm very happy to have received it again and will proudly display it here. Thanks again Erin!
I'm looking forward to Halloween next week. I seem to be the only person I know that loves Halloween and now I have my little boy to dress up. This year I've bought him a spooky spider costume. I'm not sure I'm actually going to get him to wear it but I'll have a good try and see if I can get some photos. I bought 2 pumpkins yesterday for carving. I think I'll have a go at a spider this year and maybe a funny face too. Last year I did a ghost which turned out quite well for my first go! I really love all the Halloween images and stamps out there at the moment and would love some, but just wouldnt know who to give them to once I'd made them!
Well I suppose I'd better get on with all my jobs for the day! I'll be back soon and hopefully I'll find my mojo and get some more cards made!

This is my first card using one of the Pink Petticoat christmas images. I've been looking forward to making one since I bought the kit back in the summer. I've coloured her in to match the paper in two tones of green and red. I've decoupaged the tree for a bit of extra dimension and added some embossing powder too. The paper is Jolly Doodles by Doodlebug. I can't get enough of Doodlebug when it comes to Christmas! I love it! I have the Snowy Doodles set too which I used a lot last year. All the red card is Doodlebug Crisscross too so they co-ordinate perfectly.
This is another Pink Petticoat image, and again I've decoupaged the shopping bags for a bit of extra dimension. The holly paper is by Doodlebug. I printed the sentiment directly onto the card. And for this one, I've recoloured the paper in paint shop pro as I have it in the blues but everywhere was out of stock already in the red and green! It took me a while but I got there in the end! This is a layout I used last year too.
And finally, I decided to have a go at this card after seeing a preview of Kath's card on her blog recently. I haven't got a holly punch so I just drew a leaf and made a template of my own. I cut out the leaves from doodlebug card and scored a line down the centre. I then glittered the edges and stuck down with foam pads. The berries are punched from a sheet of adhesive glitter card. The Holly paper is again from Doodlebug!

And to keep it in, I made a little wallett/envelope from vellum, using my scoreboard. It was so simple to make and I think its really effective. I think I've about mastered the art of tying nice bows at long last!
