When things go bump in the night

It's Halloween tomorrow and I sure that there will be some doorbell ringing from the local children. I have given my little Halloween gifts to our children.
These were fun gingerbread men  skeletons from  the bakers
It's been another mild weekend  and I cut the grass yesterday, probably for the last time this year.

And as  promised I am revealing the contents for this year's goodie bags for my Big and baby Children and their partners.


Cadbury's ghooost eggs....
Smartie pumpkins

Daisy has her Funnybones book to unwrap.

So here is my final Halloween creation to share for 2016. It is a card, a variation of the witch one I made for Dotty's.
I used an old Nicecrane digi image...I still love these vintage images.

The background was made with several Distress inks and and I added stencilling and remnant rubs. The sentiment is Tim Holtz and the the dies are a mixture of MB, Sizzix and Spellbinders.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

A Vintage Journey make it spooky
Pixie's Snippets playground #253 I used so many snippets for my die cuts, it's a total snippets card!
Dutch card lovers 1/3 photo/words inspiration I was obviously inspired by the words Pumpkin Pie and also all the warm could make several pies with all the pumpkins on my card!
Paper Creator anything spooky
Simon says stamp Wednesday anything goes
Deep Ocean Halloween
That's Crafty Halloween

I hope you have a fun spooky day tomorrow and that hopefully not too much does go bump in the night.
We're all set up here ready for Halloween in our porch...I hope they don't frighten the locals ;0)

Take care and thanks as always for your kind visits and comments.

Back soon,

Bye for now,

  9. Mrs Christmas is moonlighting for the day and turned into Mrs Halloween! Lots of yummy chocolatey treats for the big and little children in your life! No doubt I'll have plenty of knocks on the door later, so it's a quick trip to B&M for me to stock up on supplies before the witching hour begins! My 'not so little man' is wondering whether or not to join in with the festivities - being a teenager is such a hardship?!
    Love your spooky card with all it's lovely layers of inkiness and fabulous die cuts...wishing you and yours a Happy and hugs, Lisa x
