A Bit Of A Turkey!

Good Morning all!
It's the last Wednesday of the month & that means it's time for the 
New Release Blog Hop at Dude Time Doodles!
The Dudettes & Dude, have all had fun creating with the new kids on the block!
If you're on the right track, you should have landed here from the awesome & very talented
NanaConnie if not,don't worry, the hop as ever is a circle hop so you can
 hop in & out whereveryou choose!
 If you get a bit lost just head back to Dude Time Doodles for
the blog hop order list!

Now, here's my little creation!
It's a Thanksgiving gift bag!

This is Fanny Thanks & she's here to make sure that your 
Thanksgiving is everything you want it to be!

Now Poor Old Fanny has a bit of a windy reputation, hence the sentiment!
Here's hoping all goes well for her!
Incidentally as it's still Ocotober &
Breast Cancer Awareness Month,
Fanny is dressed in her best pink dress!
I coloured Fanny with promarkers & matted onto some handmade paper.

I used a Papermania DP & did the same on a different colour paper.

I made a gift tag from a tag die & some of the papers.
I attached it using some bakers twine.
Added a few strategically placed buttons & hey presto!
At the moment the bag is filled with some bubble wrap but
I intend to pop something delicious in there real soon!
Not sure if you'll eat it or drink it but it sure won't be a turkey!!
Now it's time to hop on to the next Dudette, the wonderfully talented Ruth
Hope you have a fun time checking out all the new Dudesville residents!
I'm off to enter my bag in a few challenges

The Crafty Pad #144 Halloween

Good Morning all!
It's Sunday & it's time for a new challenge at The Crafty Pad once more!
This week the theme for Challenge #144 is Halloween!

We are kindly sponsored by the lovely 

who is offering a £10 Voucher to spend in her wonderful online shop
Here's my little project!

It's a little halloween treat holder!
I used some of Jak Heath's Freebie Spooky papers.
The first checked one was printed straight onto a piece of  A4 card.
The second, the orange batty one was printed onto matt photo paper!
I cut both out using a grand nesaibillities die then stuck the batty paper
 on the reverse side. I scored either side leaving a 1cm base & folded.
To make a little folder, a bit like a taco shell!

The image is called Halloween & is available at The Crafty Pad Designs
I coloured this with Promarkers, cut with a corresponding nestie & matted 
onto light weight black card.

I added a little Card candi detail

I punched two holes in each side & threaded with ribbon from my stash!
I tied the ribbon in a large knot & secured with a little pinflair glue to 
stop it slipping through the holes

You can just about see the pack of sweets peeking out at the top!
I hope you can & play at The Crafty Pad this week for our Halloween Challenge!
I'd like to enter my project in a few challenges this week!
