Crafty Creations - Halloween/Fall

You can choose which theme to follow for this week's challenge at Crafty Creations -  Halloween or Fall. I have been wanting to use this fabulous Mo Manning image Trick or Treat for a while so decided to go with the Halloween theme for my own DT card.


I sat and coloured the image while my sister Gillian and I composed a potted history of Mum's life, so far, to give to her new carers, to let them know her background and what her interests were before she had problems with her memory. (I knew I shouldn't have brought my Promarkers downstairs though - Neil was horrified when he saw how many I had!)

The backing papers I used are so old I can't remember where they came from but I used a Stampin Up border punch on the orange cardstock and stamped some tiny cat silhouettes from a fabulous set of stamps I won at Mark's Finest Papers which just arrived from America this week. The stars are from a pack of Pebbles Chips I found at TK Maxx and I printed the sentiment off the Mac.

I am also entering my card for the challenges at:
Dutch Dare - Halloween or colour combo
Stampin for the Weekend - Halloween or Fall
Baby Bud Designs - Halloween or Fall
Ellephantastic - Halloween
Crazy 4 Challenges - Halloween
Cowgirl's Sunday - Halloween

Gorgeous image Jenni and such a fab fun card with all those cats and that gorgeous sentiment!
Glad you are managing to get your Mum sorted out - it does help when they know all about her - we had the same thing when my MIL ended up in longterm care but that unfortunatley didn't work out for any of us. Hope she has settled fine, Sheila:)X
