Happy Halloween

Seeing as I've got all the sweets and my lovely little cauldron I thought I'd better carve some pumpkins to let people know we've got treats for Halloween.  Believe it or not I've got to 41 years old before tackling a pumpkin!  But with the help of my eCraft it was a doddle.  I cut out a bat and a pumpkin face and used them as templates.

Such fun.  We've had lots of trick and treaters, all of them dressed up, so I've happily handed out lots of my spooky treats.  A few left for us too, even better.

With so much spooky fun there's just one little card to share with you tonight.  I've gone completely clean and simple, but I'm loving the touch of felt that I think lifts the whole card.  I love the fact that the dies and the stamps work so perfectly together.

Supplies used:
Card - kraft (PTI)
Stamps - delightful dahlias (PTI)
Ink - true black (PTI)
Dies - PTI

Inspired by challenges at:
Daring cardmakers - fantastic felties
Stamptacular Sunday - borders and frames
Clean & Simple stamping - #164
Charisma Cardz - anything goes

As I'm off the the NEC for the craft show on Wednesday it might be a quiet blog week for me but I'll update when I get back if I don't get chance whilst I'm away.

Love Ginger

Gorgeous CAS card Claire. The felt flower is lovely.

Your pumpkins look fab! When my kids were little we couldn't get pumpkins easily so I used to carve turnips! So I've got to 53 without doing a pumpkin!

Have a great time at the NEC.
