Happy Friday............

I hope you are all well on Crafty Catz Friday's a lot colder here today, still we are in to October.
This week we have Aunty Sue choosing the theme of  Halloween for us...... this is not  something I normally do.
We have two lovely sponsors this week who are
Bunny Zoe crafts
gif maker


Marianne who are offering the following lush prize.......

I really enjoyed making this card, I don't normally make many of my own backgrounds, but then again, I never make Halloween cards lol
The background was brushed with black soot, milled lavender, spiced marmalade and crushed olive distress inks, I cut a nestie circle to mask off the moon, the trees are from a selection of Pilkington woods and Inkylicious Windswept.........I have had the trees for 3 years and they have never seen ink I am ashamed to say.....The spiders are from a boxed set from Hobbycraft when I first started 7 years ago and again, most have never been out of the box! wooden spiders web with versamark ink, and covered in stickles
Tilda coloured with promarkers
Ribbon 5 years old from stash!
I can't be the only one to be ashamed of the stash I have never used, but that is going to change!

I am entering the following challenges;

4 krafty girls ------------ anything goes
CRAFT -------------- Autumn/halloween/thanksgiving
City Crafters -------------- Trick or treat
Stamp and create ------------ Halloween or fall
Totally Tilda challenge ---------- Halloweeen

The decorating is going well,ceiling and woodwork done Monday, Papering done Tuesday, Tip with rubbish and carpet ordered Wednesday, Carpet fitted Thursday, bed chosen today and shopping (unsuccessful) for bedding and curtains......... off on a mission this morning to hunt again before bed arrives at 2pm.(going lace, frills and girlie lol )

Have a lovely weekend and please join us if you have the time
Thank you for your visit and sorry it's a long post!

Hugs Tilly x
