Halloween is hoppin' at Tiddly inks

I've had loads of fun making this card and project for the Tiddly Ink blog hop today. (I just hope I've got my timings right as we are 6 hours in front... I think...)

I've made a card and also a treat bag (Lauren Meader around town tote) I've used Betty Belfrey as my image and the free little pumpkin from the pcp group (thank you hes so cute) For my card I used the friday sketchers sketch, bg papers (periphery) SU not quite navy card, the swirl stamp from whimsical wings and lots of stitching and black ink :) The gems are prima.


My treat bag came to be because I chose the wrong size on the printer for my image but I thought she looked too cute not to use. i've attached her behind some acetate in the corner of the bag and decorated it similar to my card. (The sewing machine wasn't too happy with the acetate though so some of the stitching is done with felt tip.)

Heres both the projects together. I've coloured the images with my promarkers using the cool greys and the black and blender pen.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the "hop" :0)

Lovely card and the treat bag is a great idea - us crafters just can't throw our "mistakes" away can we? Love that you came up with something for your big image. x
