My Lovely Followers

Tuesday, 7 October 2014


Good Morning, it's been quiet misty here in Yorkshire and now we have drizzle...... yes I think Autumn is here!!  I do love this season though as 'Mother Nature' sends us the most glorious colours to feast our eyes on... I love the gorgeous hues of reds, and oranges....

Debs and I went to the Harrogate show on Saturday, I was  a little disappointed though as it seemed much smaller and there wasn't as many of the big names there... I suppose it clashed with the Port Sunlight show and people can't be in two places at once lol! Still I got to see one of my bestest blogging buddies and also Debs came up for the show too, also bought some nice goodies... not as many as I normally do but that gives me more pennies for Paula's Which Craft show at the dome in Doncaster in a couple of weeks so it was a good week-end.

It's Tuesday so time for another lovely challenge over at 'PAPERTAKE WEEKLY'.. this week it's ANYTHING GOES... with the option of making a Halloween treat box, but as you know it is only an option, we also have a lovely prize up for grabs from LOTV who are our sponsors this week....

I have made a little treat bag, I don't have a lot of Halloween images but found this lovely pumpkin stamp which I won in a challenge, quiet a while ago...   I have used it as a tag for the bag... the stamp was quiet big, after I had stamped it I cut it in half and coloured it with my distress ink pens and Bob's your uncle lol!! The papers were from Lidl which I've had forever, and the spider I got from Asda last year and still have quiet a few left!

I think these little guys steal the show lol!!!
There was a Mummy pumpkin and two more babies
but is was too big for a tag... I think they are sooo cute!!

I can't believe she is two weeks old already!!!
