He he !!!!! 2 posts in one day!!!!! must be all that sunshine out there spurring me on!!!!

This fabby image is one of Tiddly inks new gothic sugar and spices and I lurve them all, soooo much!!! you can buy each one singly or get a pack of 4 together. I am a big lover of halloween so I just had to play with this one as soon as I got her. 
I coloured her up all spooky, I love how she is dressed up ready with her candy handbag ready to fill with sweets!!! and I love those orange boots!!

Then I distressed all my spooky dookie papers and the green card base. I used spiced marmalade and forest moss distress inks and then gave them a run through my distezz-it-all just to make sure they were definitely feeling distressed!!! romfl!!

I added some ribbon and card candie's too.
I am popping this little spooky creation in for these 2 challenges......

Papers- Craft the year away from funky hand.

Morning peeps!!

how are you all today? great  I hope. its a fabulously sunny day here today and lovely and warm. Little Mo pootled off to school in his shorts again today ( pleased I held off putting them in the loft!!) He has navy blue tank tops this year for school as he gets so hot, even when its cool he gets hot!! He looked really cute this morning!His parents evening last night went really nicely, I am so proud of him and so so very thankful for him going to an awesome school with even more awesome teaching team. I hope they all know how very much that means to parents and how safe it makes us feel knowing our children are with them? I hope so.

Ok, onto my card for today!! a friend at work asked me for a card for her nana's birthday. I wanted to make it have things that her nana liked and asked her for her nana's fav colour and anything she liked. She came back with lilac and a black and white cat, awwwww. Luckily I had this magnolia kitty that my BF stamped for me years 3 years ago!!!! I coloured it up  and added some little patches of white with my gel pen.

The lilac's and purples bit was easy. I chose 4 papers from the 'November Rain' colourway and printed them out, job done easy as they all co-ordinate with each other!! yey!!! I chose the tree's to add a touch of autumn, I love that tree paper!!

The 'nana' is cut on my cricut and then everything got silicone 'd on to make it pop out from the card a bit.
A nice sunny day = piccies taken outside !! I love the red bricks on my garage wall against the grass, it looks so pretty.

I'll be back in a minute with another new Tiddly Inks image!!!
