Santa, Little Monsters and Halloween Candy......

 Here's a little Santa card made with an image from the Magical Winter CD from Polkadoodles. I took this first photo at an angle so that you can see the glitter....


Very simple, but it took me ages to colour him! This will be Monty's Christmas card this year...


Here's some Halloween candy for you - I have had a much needed tidy up in my craft space, and since I have been on Craftwork Card's design team for some years now, I have gathered a huge amount of the gorgeous card Candi that they make, more than I could ever use in a lifetime - I have sorted an assortment out, some of every collection ever made and I have a bag to give away to TWO of you......



Again, probably more than you will ever need so you can probably spread a bit of sunshine among your friends as well....

 Just leave your name under this post, and on Friday, I will pick two random winners from all those names, I'll let you know on Saturday who won

Some happy mail for me today, I had a parcel from Blitzy, some of the few distress colours that I don't have - I love the pink and the peacock one. Have you tried Blitzy yet, I love it. It's a sale site, based in Chicago, and when you join you get emails with all the latest sales, their prices are fantastic, and even with postage costs, these ink pads cost me £15 less than the cheapest place I could find them online in the UK. You can get extra discounts too - highly recommended


Here are Max and Milo getting ready for Halloween .........




and trying their outfits on for size - I enlarged this photo when my daughter in law sent it in my mail, and underneath those monster faces you can see two pairs of very blue eyes peeping out. Cute...


Mind you, Halloween may be a bit of a trial for four year old Milo, who is going through the waking at night saying he is scared there are monsters under the bed stage.......with immaculate logic, when his parents tell him that there are no scary monsters or burglars he asks 'well if there are no burglars, why do we have a burglar alarm?' Hmm, answer that one Dad!

No photos of Kiki and Monty yet, but she informs me she is going to be a cat and Monty is Gangman Style! I'm rather glad we didn't have all this dressing up malarkey when my kids were small, I think it would have driven me to distraction - I found it hard enough to get three gym kits in the right bags on the right days

See you tomorrow x

  10. Wow! what a lot of candi.

    Love the photo of the boys in their outfits.

    Seems like Halloween has taken-off more this year but I don't think here in the UK we do the 'door knocking' to the extent they do in the USA...it seems to be more kiddies (and grown-ups LOL) parties.

    Love the Santa card.
