happy halloween!!

As you can see from the halloween bounty i have been busy this week, but i do love this season.
not sure what to do with all the cards,
had bit too much fun making them and
got carried away with numbers!!

these were using tim holtz distress inks, halloween silhouettes stamps, matching emboss folder, and alterations movers & shapers bat and skull die set
to make it into a birthday card for a friend
i added a birthday stamped message from stampin up! and used stampin up! punches to mat& layer
i also used stampin up! products to make this card for my little cousin's, 
i used tim holtz distress inks and stampin up! googly ghouls stamp set, for the background stamps i used inky antics halloween hijinx clear stamp set.

for these cards i used the inky antics halloween hijinx clear stamp set and tim holtz distress ink
little else was used to make all the cards other than basic pre-scored card blanks (black/white) black card and black ink and a few pro-markers
chocolate & vanilla pumpkin patch cupcakes

royal iced vanilla & almond cookies
today i had a little helper in the form of my cousin lucy (6), who came to the house to help decorate the cupcakes ready for the bun sale at her school.
she did very well at making the little pumpkins, but little hands make nice little balls i always say
so thumbs up lucy !!

and the countdown begins...

well with only 85 days to go christmas is almost upon us, the shops are starting to put out their stock and online you can already order your christmas shopping so its about time i made my christmas cards.
i am normally well oraganised, by this time of year i would have been at it for month and all the cards are made and in order ready to be written, but sadly not this year.
but im sure it will all get done in time...
i have however made my 1st christmas card so i have at least made a start. 1 down,64 to go...
(kraft card stock, lili of the valley topper, stampin up punch & message stamp, papermania bakers twine, 6x6 paper <i think was from a forever friends xmas paper pack> tim holtz distress ink pads)
i will try not to over load you with christmas card but with sooo much lovely craft stash about, plus the fact that i generally love holidays, im sure more than a few will slip in, plus i can feel an idea brewing!!
