The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Trick or Treat OR Something Sweet.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Oh my,Witch’s Broom by Crafty Sentiments¬†Designs is just too cute to spook isn’t she?!She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.I’ve seen these charming picnic type baskets around for a while and thought I’d make a Halloween themed one to go with her.The papers are quite pretty but have the perfect colour palette for this time of year,well at least I think so ūüėČ Once assembled I fussy cute the little sweetie¬†out and adhered her to the side.To decorate I added a couple of paper twine threaded buttons,a paper raffia ribbon bow (love how you can fan this stuff out) and a tag tied to that with more paper twine.Seeing as this is a picnic basket I had to add some of these ‘exceedingly good’ Halloween themed cakes – LOL ūüėõ Sorry to any folks from outside the UK who don’t know what I’m talking about and this may seem like the ramblings of a madwoman – mind you,you may not be that far wrong – LOL ūüėÄ

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Bingo!(check blog for board).We have the fabulous Aurora Wings as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Here’s the sweet and adorable Candy Corn Fairy with Hat and Wand¬†by¬†Aurora Wings.She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers and of course,as she’s a fairy,the obligatory glitter in the form of Stickles this time.After seeing a hexagonal box made on a Candy Punch Box Board,which I don’t have,I wondered if there would be a way round that?!With much fiddling with dimensions to get the size I wanted and a long reach heart punch I managed it.I stuffed it with some yummy Halloween sweets ūüôā¬†Even tho’ we give away goodies to the Trick or Treater’s that come to our door I usually make a little something extra for my own kids.Altho’ given the angle the photo has been taken at the tag with the fairy on looks very much larger IRL it isn’t!But I don’t mind as it showcases this lil’ beauty off a treat – or shouild that be Trick or Treat! ūüėÄ
