Good Afternoon!! Didn't plan on making anything today and had a nice day planned but sick kiddos put a damper on those plans! I was planning on meeting with Korin today as I haven't seen her in months and as usual something comes up and it doesn't happen!! LOL Such is life!

Anyways I have created a card/box with this adorable image from Belles and Whistles. She is adorable and I just couldn't not make a cute and pretty card with it! I have made this for a few challenges as, obviously, halloween is a big theme with challenges this week! The challenge at ROP is nearly Halloween and they want to see a card/invitation or treat bag. I bought some of this blackberry buckle candy corn specifically for this image because I wanted to use purple. I had a template for a card folder so instead of cards on the inside I put in a little bag of the candy.

The themes at Stamp with fun and Cute Card Thursday are also for halloween as well! There are probably more but I made it with these in mind!

Paper: Bo Bunny
Inks: Distress inks and twinkling h20's
Accessories: button and twine ~ stash, flowers and pearls ~ Prima, pumpkin on inside ~ cuttlebug, circle stamp ~ PTI and Boo is from an SU set!

Well thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such nice comments!! I really appreciate it!! I hope you are all having a wonderful day! I have to go and check on my angels now! I cannot believe that 2 out of the 3 are taking a nap! That hasn't happened in like 5 years!! LOL

What a brilliant job you've done. It's funny - I would never wear purple and orange together but don't they flow beautifully for halloween colours. Thanks for joining us at Roses On Paper. Peta
