Jack O'Lantern.........

Images- Jack O'Lantern.
Morning everyone!! 

I'm in for you today with my Dream Team make of the week and boy oh boy did I have fun with this one!!

If you peek very closely at the bottom left corner you can just about see the acetate card base for my spookily cute card today! 

I used Just a pumpkin as my background and then merged the super sweet new little Jack O'Lantern just on the top so he looks like he's escaping from the mouth of the background pumpkin! I carefully cut out the centres of the background pumpkins eyes before adhering it to a cardbase I made with acetate so it looks like the whole thing is floating! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek! I love it!!!

Yesterday The Daubney Trio went out to have a lovely walk around one of my Nana and Grandad's favourite places, Clumber Park. I decorated a little stone with a photo of them and sharpied on a little message and then gave it a good couple of coats of decopatch glue to keep them safe. We all found it very comforting to carry them round and take a few photo's of our walk before we found them the perfect place to stay. 

We also wore our new walking shoes so we can get them bedded in nicely before holiday fun walking time comes up in a couple of weeks. I am ever so pleased with mine, they are quite comfy with the gel insoles that the man suggested too. We spoke to him when we were trying to choose my shoes as chemo has left me with quite sore feet and a few bruised and loose toenails so I want to keep my feet happy in any new shoes!! It was all good yesterday tough whilst walking and a good 4 milewalk with no oucies in a brand new pair of walking shoes gets a big tick off on the Fabulous List for me!! he he!! 

Right, time to pootle off! I've got banana bread to take out of the oven and a few little bits I need to get done before the school run later! Thank you for popping in, huge hugs Lou xxx


  1. This is sooooo clever Lou! The way it looks like it's floating above the wood!! You are such a free thinker chick. Love that about you and it comes through in your creations! Love the awesome die you used to create the 'old paper' edge too. So cool!! Little Jack escaping the pumpkin's jaws is fun too. Creepy but cute!! Glad the walking shoes are behaving so well. There are so many 'little things' they don't talk about with chemo, but it really does give your whole body a nasty knock! So you're wise to give those feet a little TLC. I saw the stones in IG I think and they were awesome hun. Such a beautiful way to honour your grandparents. Sending love and hugs, Wends xoxo

  2. Fab card, love the little pumpkin head coming out of the mouth :) What a wonderful idea to make the stone with your nan & grandad on it
