Trick or Treat

Good morning all.

Another very mild day yesterday although after rain overnight it remained dark and damp all day here. The intrepid travellers have mostly come down with a flu bug so have had to get medication. I've got two here with tonsillitis so I'm quite pleased Gary's not here too!

Treat bags to share today...all filled and ready for the onslaught this evening. I've just got the front porch to decorate now. The plain ones are the design I used for the 36 mass produced ones all card used came from my snippet busting session.

Dies from Spellbinders. I used DI to colour a moon. Trick or Treat stamp from Close to my Heart. The background on the middle bag is another attempt at alcohol marbling this time using darker colours and adding a little black to the mix.

Crafting by Designs - Halloween
