Orange and Black

Good Morning Everyone, 

How are you all, can you believe it is Friday already? These weeks are flying past. 

Last night our local garden center had their Christmas open night, seemed very strange to be going around looking at decorations before we have even had Halloween. 

Talking about halloween, it is time for a new challenge over at Patties Creations Challenge Blog. This fortnights theme is 



Now I don't normally do "Halloween", but when I seen Patties, cute Pumpkins I couldn't resist them. 

I used Pumpkin Patch from Patties store. 

I didn't want to make a card this time around and I don't normally give sweets out, but I decided to have a go at making my own little sweetie bag.

So I printer out "Pumpkin Patch" and coloured it in using "punpkin" promarker, I used a yellow for the inside of the pumpkin and a green for the top. 

I matted and layered this up on Orange and Black mats.

I took a food bag and filled up my bag with orange, black and green sweets. I fixed the "topper" to the bag which created the "seal" and then I cut my own pumpkin patch from my cricut and added it to the bottom of the bag. 

Not my normal crafty thing to do but I actually really liked the look of it. 

This year for Christmas I have LOADS of ideas of what I want to make, so doing this really got me in the mood to start my Christmas favor boxes for my table. 

The challenges I am entering this into are:-
DL.ART Thankful Thursday - Pumpkin - 24/10
Paper Crafting Journey - Halloween Colours - 24/10

I hope you like. Thanks for popping in and taking the time to read/view and thanks for the comments. 

I will be back tomorrow with a small tutorial.
