Halloween - and half term!

Hi there to all of my crafty buddies! I hope you are well and enjoying the start of your weekend - mine is looking busy today with a kids party in the middle but not much planned for tomorrow so hopefully we'll get chance to relax a little.

Yesterday was the first day of the holidays - and my little munchkins both made a card for the CYPKids Fall challenge - so here they are:

The top one is by Penny who is just 4, and the bottom one by Lucy who is 6. Both of the images came from a win over at the Poodles Parlour - thanks for that!!!! They both coloured their images with regular felt tips, I cut them out and then they made their cards up with Penny doing a little embossing and Lucy choosing patterned paper. I think they've done really well.

These are both being entered into the CYP kidscypkidscrafts Fall challenge.

My offering for today is my final Halloween card - and this is an invitation card I made up quite a while ago - Its strange that I will be attening a party at these times at our village school - should be fun!!!!!

The digis I have used are both by Morgan Fitzsimmons  called Halloween7 and Halloween 11 from the scrapbook stamp society and you can get them here and here.

I would like to enter my Halloween invitation into the following challenges:

Creative Inspiration:cinspirations Happy Halloween
Sisterhood of Craftersthesisterhoodofcrafters: Halloween
mymumscraftshopchallenges: So spooky
thepapershelter Halloween
MAWTT:movingalongwiththetimes Cute Halloween
craftpunked Halloween
TPCtotallypapercrafts: Spooky

Have a fabulous Saturday and I hope to get some card making done at this party later so I'll hopefully be back tomorrow with a goodie!

Big Crafty Hugs and thanks for visiting!
