Crafting for all Seasons #87 "Too Cute to Spook"

Good morning all.

The weather was gorgeous yesterday although we had rain in the evening, can't believe it's October today! Hubby and I are off to Harrogate for the weekend to do a bit of sightseeing, we have been in the past to trade shows but never actually seen any of the sights. Of course I may just have to call into the Yorkshire Showground at some point to check out the crafts on offer....it would be rude not to wouldn't it!!

Today it's time for our next challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Too Cute to Spook". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. Our sponsor this time Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet who gave the DT images to work with.

A treat bag for Halloween from me.

I've used Candy Bear from Stitchy Stamps which I've coloured with promarkers. Dies from Spellbinders. Bag is made from an A4 sheet of paper printed on both sides with contrasting papers from Bearly Mine. Ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons.

Fabulous Sponsor 2014

  6. Hi Carol,
    that´s such a lovely treat bag and it´s so clever you have made it with just one sheet of paper. I bet one little Halloweenghost will love to feel it with treats. xx Bianca

  7. Fab treat bag Carol, love the sweet image and your papers, just perfect for trick or treat, Kate x

  8. Carol, it would indeed be rude not to check out any craft places. I know you won't be rude! And don't be rude for me too! How lucky you are to be able to enjoy the sights in Yorkshire. It always looks like such gorgeous country when I see it on tv shows. Your Halloween treat bag is simply adorable. Love the image and the spiderweb paper is very pretty with your plaid. Love the 2 colors combined this way. Some really cute embellishments on this little goodie bag as well. Hope you have a fun time sightseeing, and an even more fun time while you're 'not being rude'. And finding some good stuff! TFS & Hugs
