Cute Halloween

Good morning! It's ages since I've had time to post a card! Been looking after my lovely Mum while my brothers, who care for her normally, are away on a much deserved holiday. I was a bit apprehensive as she is now immobile and totally dependant on whoever is caring for her, but we've been fine! She is the most amazing woman, her strength of personality and her optimism are inspirational, and she has kept her wonderful sense of humour!
Anyways, back to this weeks challenge at Delicious Doodles, the theme this week is 'Cute Halloween'. I decided to make a treat bag, so of course I had to make two (next year it will be 3 when 3rd granddaughter is big enough to want one!). I covered some plain kraft bags with brightly coloured and embossed cardstock, matted onto black cs. Printed out my two images
 and coloured them with copics, then attached them to the bags. The spider web die cuts are Memory Box, the eyes on the ghostie bag are hand cut. The spider and 'Boo' letters are from Hobbycutz. I tied some ribbon and tulle around the handles to finish. All that remains now is to fill them with treats :). I think the girls will like them (they'll definitely like the treats!)
There are loads more of these cute Halloweenie images available in the Shop, so why not pop over and have a look, they're perfect for kids makes!
We'd love to have you join us this week so just click here to add your creation!
Thanks for visiting!

Fabulous makes Chris, love the images and a great idea.
I wondered why you hadn't posted anything, your Mum sounds a wonderful Lady and so fabulous to here that she has kept her sense of humour.
