Last minute Halloween creations!

Oh I'm always rolling in at the last minute aren't I?!  But I did at last manage to make something for Halloween - these are for Dex to take into nursery tomorrow for everyone in his 'class'.  He's SO excited about taking them in - isn't it lovely how little things like that make kids so happy, I love it :o)



Sorry the photos aren't great, it was going dark by the time I took my pics and I think it's tricky to take pics of anything other than a card anyway... Oh, and I didn't actually make the cakes - they're available in trays of 18 for £5 from good old Asda lol!

I've used some very cute images from Pink Gem Designs, that luckily come with a line image and a pre-coloured version for those quick makes - I've used the pre-coloured ones as I've done 18 of them for Dex's nursery and then I'll be doing another batch tomorrow for the trick-or-treaters too... I'd never manage to colour all of them so these are perfect for me!  You can see Pink Gem's Halloween digis here.  I've printed them onto linen card and mounted them on black card cut with blossom nesties.  And then stuck them all on some jumbo lolly sticks that I bought from Hobbycraft.  Popped them in cellophane bags, tied them with baker's twine and that's it - one very happy child :o)

There are quite a lot of Halloween challenges around, so I'm entering the following:

Apologies if I've missed any of your challenge rules, I did try to read them all but just delete me if I've not followed any of them properly!
