Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!

I like Halloween, I'm a bit too old for Trick or Treat, but not too old to have some fun pumpkin carving.
We had our 1st go at it last Halloween and were quite impressed with the results, so it's now become our new tradition.

This time I decided to do the Angry birds character

and my partner did Sonic the hedgehog.

It's also the time of year we get to craft together, even though there is quite a bit of competition! lol

Halloween and pumpkins also mean its time for pumpkin soup. Mmmmm. My favourite.

Arrrrrr on 2 counts. Arrrrr in pirate tone for our challenge this fortnight, and Arrrr in a slightly different pitch because I'm in a bit of pain this week.

Firstly our challenge over at Aud Sentiments

we are so excited to have Sassy Studio Designs as our sponsor. 

Here is a little bit about them...  
Sassy and Sexy!  Those two words really sum up the wonderful images that are to be found here.  SSD produce a great range of images and are always on trend and current.  I just love their storybook characters and they have some wonderful Sassy Halloween images.  All the images come in JPG, but, if you email them, they are happy to send you other formats too!  Hows that for service? 

OK, now onto the challenge. We want to see your projects or cards with a storybook theme.  So your sentiment (which you must include!) will be either from a story or something a storybook character might say!  
For this project I used Sassy studio designs 'Pirate Penny'. I think she's lovely.
So I got thinking and talking in Pirate mode, as our challenge is to use a sentiment from your Character. 
Arrrrr, I thought
These are my ideas I came up with for this project, feel free to use them in your projects:-

Arrrr, Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday Matey
Shiver me timbers, You're how old?
Yo, ho, ho & a bottle of rum.

Bottle of rum I thought! Perfect birthday gift, and opportunity to make a quirky drinks tag.

(I have a small confession, this isn't the actual bottle of rum, I'm yet to go out and purchase that one, this one is for illustration purposes only.....and sampling! lol ;)

My 2nd Arrrrr is due to me being in a little pain this week. I'm currently doing up my new home, but this week I've done something to my neck/shoulder whilst stripping the ceiling. I'm currently drugged up on paracetamols and smelling beautifully of deep heat, renovations are on hold on my part as I'm struggling to move my arm :( I'm hoping its going to heal quick. The quicker I finish my home, the quicker I can get back to crafting and blogland properly! 

I'd like to enter the following challenges

Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge - Masculine (it's for a Male friend)
Ladybugs Crafts Challenge - I need a P - Pirate

Trick or Treat

This fortnights challenge over at Aud Sentiments is Halloween.

This fortnight we're sponsored by Stamp Fairy who are offering a wonderful $10 Gift Certificate to Stamp Fairy Store. 

Here is a little bit about them...

"If you are searching for cute, whimsy digistamps - you have come to the right place! Everything you can find on this site has been hand - and mousemade with love and lots of creativity."  

You must take a look, there's lots of gorgeous digi stamps, and some cute freebies so you can try before you buy.

This is a quick post from me as I have just purchased a new home, that requires a lot of love and attention, but this challenge is ideal as it won't be long before the trick or treater's will be knocking on our door!
So I've taken this opportunity to make some treat bags up ready. I've used Stamp Fairy's Barry, isn't he gorgeous?, coloured with my promarkers and his hat duplicated a couple of time for some growing pumpkins. 

I love pumpkin, it make lovely warming soup ;)

So come and join in our challenge, just don't forget to add your sentiment to your Halloween project!

New Home :)

This is the reason for me being a little quiet on Blog Land. My new home, and a new major project.
