I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Dinky Dots Den Challenge #1

Hi,

Today is the launch of another fabby challenge blog. This time from Dinky Dots Den. The first theme is Halloween so I thought would be great chance to use my "Wizard AJ" and "Witch Lulu" from Dinky Dots Crafts.

I decided to make sweetie boxes for my two nephews and niece as my two say they are a bit old for Halloween now as it's not "cool".

The images are coloured with promarkers and backed with green and orange card, cut with nesties on my cuttlebug. The green circle is also put through cuttlebug with circle embossing folder. The papers for the box were a freebie from Funky Fairy with the box template from Cuddly Buddly.
