Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Going out with a bang (or maybe a boo!)

Happy Thursday and it's time again for a new challenge over at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges! Sadly this will be my last Dt post, out of necessity not choice, if you have been following my blog you will know I was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I will be going back to my full time job sometime soon and something has to give..I may end up dropping my hours. I will miss my lovely teamies and the support we all provide for one another..anyway back to todays make!

This weeks challenge is to use Autumn colours, I knew straight away I had to use one of the 7 dwarfkins, available here. I love all things halloween so decided to make a very straightforward treat bag.
Papers are SU! pumpkin pie and basic black and the bulldog clip is also SU! Promarkers used for colouring, MS zigzag punch and ribbon from stash.Die cuts are nesties. Googly eyes from stash.

The sweet bag is stapled to the back piece of card so the front is not damaged when a choc fiend tries to rip the goodies out!
Don't forget to visit the blog to see what everyone else has created! So lets see your Autumn colours and don't forget if you use on of our images, your entry is counted twice!

I will be entering this project into the following challenges;

Lexi's Creations - autumn
Digital Tuesday - celebrate the season
Creative Inspirations - anything goes
Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
PaperPlay Challenges - punches and dies
CES Challenges - make it magical or spooky
Quirky Crafts - anything but a card
One stitch at a time - anything goes
Addicted to stamps - anything but a card

Great bag. You did a fantastic job with your coloring and putting everything together. It definitely doesn't look handmade. Hugs, dj

Fabulous idea Debbie. I'd love to make up wee packs like this for the wee ones but for some reason we dont get kids coming to our door. There doesnt seem to be many kids in our wee tiny cul-de-sac which is a shame because I'd have great fun making something like this. Really terrific little bags. Lee xx
