Thought I had better make the grandchildren something for Halloween, so searched and found tutorials for these on various blogs......The peek-a-boo packet has a chocolate Ghost in it, the bats have Chocolate lollipops inside, the pumpkin also has chocolates all from M & S.
Looking forward to tomorrow as we are all off to Monkey World....I just love it there and so do the grandchildren.......

Another butterfly.....

This time I used the butterfly stamp from the Touch of Nature SU Set. Stamped it onto blue card and then on to cream cut it out and again left a border of cream around it and stuck tiny beads down the centre of the body. Punches used were, SU Scallop, and SU Ovals, SU Eyelet punch ( I really like this new punch)
Card and backing is from stash as well as ribbon and pearls.


Having been to Jenny's SU launch party I was inspried by her lovely butterfly cards so decided to fish out my butterfly stamps and punches.

For the blue card :I uesed a 'dotty' stamp and stamped onto blue card with a dark ink pad, punched out the butterflies using a Family Treasures punch then stuck them onto white card and cut around leaving a white border to make them 'pop'. The backing paper is a K and Co one, SU eyelet border punch and SU scallop circle punch as well as some of the nesting circle punches. Ribbon from stash.
