Boo!

Evening All,

I went to our village craft club this evening.

Wendy had two projects for us tonight.  One was a jam jar which we decorated with a tea light inside and this was the other.

It's the first Halloween card I have ever made and was great fun.

We tore strips of white card, inked the bottom of each one and stuck them onto a piece of black card, leaving a space for the googly eyes.

The spiders web, spider and pumpkin are all table confetti.

Not a very good photo, I know, but it was taken a short time ago underneath the lights on the kitchen cupboards.



It's been a busy day - no it hasn't, I lie.   I've been crafting for most of it.  Wendy and I went to a workshop today.  I'll show you the cards we made  when I've taken some photos.

So the plan now is a mug of hot chocolate, a bit of tele then off to bed.

I'm always stuck for Halloween ideas as I don't DO Halloween so I don't have any suitable stash, but I DO have googly eyes, so I must remember this idea for next year. Great card, lots of fun

Hi Barb,
what a brilliant design card.
I love the googly eyes peeking through, and the layers are fab.
Not sure about the spider though as I don't like spiders. LOL.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
