Anyways on a brighter note, our new monthly challenge starts today over at The Crafty Addicts Challenge blog. The theme as always is 'Anything Goes' but you could try our twist of 'Non Traditional Colours'. With Christmas just around the corner this was so much fun to do. Sponsoring us is the fabulous Polkadoodles, who are offering 3 pre chosen images worth £6.75 to the winner.

Hi there Folks, can't believe that it's that time again for Halloween ... not sure on how many we'll get at the door this year, as having moved house. It's great when all the little ones get dressed up, but some of the older ones don't but still want goody bags!! Anyways, with Halloween in mind, I'm here to share with you this little spooky fun door hanger that I created ...
