Halloween approaches

Only a few days to go before Halloween....... and there is plenty of fun inspiration in  the shops.
 I spied some gorgeous chocolate creation in Harrods recently.

I have found some yummy goodies of my own

don't you love those corny jokes!

I still have a couple more Halloween creations to share so here is one for today. Another of my tags holloween tags for my "babies" treat bags. I got out some spooky coloured  Distress inks
 and blended them together.
 I added some stenciling and Tim Halloween stamps which I embossed as well as a fun die but spider and ghost. This one is for my daughter and we do love spiders..as does Daisy who calls them Biders...bless.
 and finished off with a remnant rub spider..
