Papertake Spookly :)

Yes we've gone all 'spooky-doos' over at Papertake Weekly and we're inviting you to join us over at

The Dark Side

And as I said yesterday, we have someone verrry famous as our special guest and it is non other than Joanna Sheen!!!!
(yes Vic, you were so wrong, my lovely lol xxx.

Joanna has made a card for us, we have 2 brand new GDT peeps AND there's lots and lots of fabulous cardage to feast yer eyes on. So nip over and check it all out if you get a sec xxxx

I thought this fabulous image of Milly on her broomstick from the very wonderful Janet at Pink Gem was perfect!!!

The original image has little stars round it - you can see it here - but I cut her out cos I wanted it to look like she was flying.

Just a note to say that Pink Gem will be closing from 16th to 25th October so if you want any goodies, best get them now lovely peeps xxx

Naturally, I used PMs and lots of blingy Glamour Dust. And as Milly is a very special witch, I gave her a glittery frock.

I think she looks fabulous!!!!

I cut the bat our using the Cricut - shock horror, it has been used twice in as many weeks - and I stuck it on a piece of acetate so it sort of floated over the card. I wanted to make it look like it was flying round Milly.

I have to say that IRL you can hardly see the acetate but of course, awesome Annie here with her marvellous editing skills has made it really stand out.

The papers and sentiment are all from Pink Petticoat's Happy Hauntings collection. I am loving this collection - the papers and colours are stunning.

And BTW, have you seen the new PP Fairy Lights collection? Check it out here - it is just awesome, AND it is on offer :)))x

So there's the old card.

As Halloween is approaching and we will no doubt be inundated with all sorts of little horrors asking us if we want a trick or a treat, I wanted to make something to put the 'treats' in.

And then I remembered this tutuorial over at Liz's blog.

It's a little sour cream container.

They are just perfect I think. They are soooo easy peasy, they only take about 1 minute to make and you get 4 from a single piece of A4 card. You could really go to town decorating them but I've left this quite plain so you can see it better. I'm sure you all saw them when Liz first blogged them but I thought I'd put it on here anyway. I am going to make loads for Kyla to take to her nursery Halloween party to give to her little pals.

So that's me done for the day.

But before I go, I have to say the biggest CONGRATS to my lovely blog bud Marcea. She's only gone and got picked for Magnolia's Design Team - wooohoooooooo. You can read about it here. I have had the pleasure of meeting this sweet girlie and this could not have happened to a nicer person. I am THRILLED for ya sweet cheeks (I am also dead jealous as well lol xxx) but well done you xxxxx

Have the fabbiest of days and hugs to all xxx
