Challenges Part Deux

Hello Again
Twice in one week! I'm back with the second instalment of my entries for the ILWS design team this month. The lovely Karin set us a 'Halloween' theme challenge - to make an item/card for Halloween, which I know isn't massive over here, but I think she's missing home in Canada where it's a big thing.  Well i went off blog hopping, itching to do something a bit different, and found triangle treat pouches decorated as scary halloween characters, and so batty was born.

And finally, Sara set the challenge to make a project which didn't use any card.  Circle circus was sitting on my desk, still inky from Jim's birthday card, so I decided to have a go at melting wax and decorating a candle (it's fiddly, but quite easy to achieve!) so here is entry number one

Then I used up some scraps of the sweet peas DSP stack to create a treat pouch cover, ran a glassine bag through an embossing folder, and used it to make a co-ordinating ribbon gift pouch, decorated with felt sweet pea flowers, which are now sadly retired.

Well, that's all I have to share today - be sure to pop over to the design team gallery and have a peek at what the other lovely ladies have been up to!

until next time
