Witches and Broomsticks.......!!

Hi everyone, as you can guess this post is to show you my Halloween makes. I managed to get them made yesterday as I really needed to post them today. Then I had to get a passport photo done. I'd rather go to the dentist than have a photo taken but needs must!!

This is what I made for Poppy, managing to use her favourite colour, green. I can take absolutely no credit for the treat bag as my friend showed me how to make it. She also stamped me a couple of witches as I thought Poppy might like a witch. Unfortunately I don't know what the make of the stamp is so if anyone knows.....?

DP :- MME.
Sentiment :- Penny Black.
Image :- Magnolia (card), ? (treat bag)
Colouring :- Distress Markers - bag, Promarkers - card.
Glitter markers on card :- Spica glitter gel pen.
Candi, Stampendous aged black embossing enamel.

And this is Oliver's bag and card.

I used :-
Image and sentiment :- Penny Black.
DP, Promarkers, embossing enamel and Candi as above.

I sent Catriona a text to say that I'd posted the parcel and if the children didn't like the sweeties she might have to eat them. She says I've got her wrong but I know what a sweet tooth she has, like me! The little spider sweeties are just chocolate but the eyeballs and brains have popping candy in them!

Well I'm off to try to do some catching up now. So much for my day off. I've achieved nothing apart from making a pot of soup and some stew. And the photos!!! I'm off out to the Guild in an hour to hear about a trip to China. Should be interesting. 

Yesterday we were very lucky to have a guest preacher at my church. The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland was preaching as part of the celebrations of 1,000 years of churches in our parish. We were joined by members and clergy from the Congregational and Scottish Episcopal churches in the parish. Afterward we had a buffet in the church hall and the opportunity to have a chat. There was also a celebratory cake donated by a local baker. I think people will still be talking about this tonight. The Moderator is a very enthusiastic and charismatic man and I think everyone was impressed by him.

Thanks for looking and we're not usually late at the Guild so I might manage to do some more catching up.

Oops now it's Tuesday evening and I forgot to add the challenges I was going to enter! I've already had to change my mind about one as it's finished already.

Penny Black :- Sketch. Second card.
Creative Inspirations :- Happy Halloween. First card.
Crafty Creations :- Halloween Spooks. Second card
Cute Card Thursday :- Something Scary. First card.
Charisma :- Don't be square. First treat bag.
Totally Papercrafts :- Spooky Halloween. First treat bag.
Cupcake :- Witches or Pumpkins. First card.
Created with Love :- Happy Halloween. Treat bags.

Hope I've got this ok now!

I heard from Catriona this morning and the parcel has arrived and she's trying to stop Oliver from eating everything! He loves chocolate and he thinks the popping candy sweets are funny lol.
