BOO! It's Halloween

I don't really 'do' Halloween. Plus, I don't normally 'do' scrunching and inking and I rarely 'do' distressing.  I do however, 'do' die cuts, I do 'do' cute images and I do 'do' colouring - so I guess that I actually do 'do' what I said that I don't do. 
One thing that I know I definitely 'do' is that I don't resist super cute images like this one from Sassy Cheryl's called Wicked Witch of the West Charlie . 

I will enter this card in the following challenges: 
Moving Along with the Times Too Cute to Spook
My Time to Craft #194 Halloween
Craftymess #20 Halloween
2 Sisters #115 Halloween or Fall Colours     Winner!
Cupcake Craft #216 Witches and Pumpkins
Top Tip Tuesday #88 Halloween

Sweet Stampin' - What's Cooking!

This week over at Sweet Stampin' our challenge is "What's Cooking/Something to Eat".
I thought that these papers from Kaisercraft and this Mo Manning image were both a perfect fit for the challenge. 

We are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps who are giving away 5 free digis of the winners choice and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen.  

Luckily for me, I enjoy cooking ...  and I have a partner and a son who both love eating. Can you actually ever fill up a man/boy? Do they have a cut off point? I know that I often hear the words - I'm hungry/Is there anything to eat/How long will dinner be? But, I don't recall ever hearing "I have had enough. I just couldn't eat another thing"? So to all those mothers of young boys - remember ... it will only get worse. (lol) 

Thank you to all of my lovely followers for your support and much much much appreciated comments. 
Have a great weekend all.

Happy Birthday Sis

My sister had a birthday recently and I am so confused. I always thought that she was 21 and has been 21 for a number of years now. That would make me 19 - not a bad age. 
But not long after her birthday we celebrated her sons 21st birthday. See ... confused! 

I realised that you know you are getting old when your children turn your desired age. Bugger! 

So, I will start again ..... My sister had a birthday recently and she turned 30 which makes me 28 - not a bad age - and that is how it is going to stay for at least another 9 years. :-)

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Perfect Sentiments Happy Birthday
Card Mania #5 Happy Birthday     Top 3
Lollipop Crafts #92 Happy Birthday     Top 3
Sentimental Sundays #124 Black/White and another colour     Top 3

Sweet Stampin' - Autumn Leaves and Trees

This week over at Sweet Stampin' we are having an Autumn Leaves/Trees challenge. We are sponsored by Lily of the Valley as well as our monthly sponsor, Joanna Sheen, both with vouchers to give away.
Of course, here in Australia we are in Springtime but luckily for me, where I live, in Melbourne, we can have often have four seasons in just one day so it is no problem for me to imagine Autumn. Just this last weekend, we had the hottest October day in ... lots of years and then last Thursday it was 13 degrees C (55F). 
See what I mean - we are prepared for anything here.  
So wherever you are and whatever sort of weather you are having, join in our challenge. 
If you are looking for some inspiration, head on over to Sweet Stampin.
I have used Sassy Cheryls digi image - Jeni's Ladybug and Basic Grey - Picadilly paper pad.
I will show this card to:
