Just a quick layout using the fab new Stampin Up Halloween papers. Absolutely love the spider web doilies in the seasonal catalogue, and really did mean to cut my title "Halloween" out of the gorgeous new Black glimmer paper, but then I forgot !!!

There are some gorgeous samples out there of this beautiful stamp set. I am a sucker for trees and could buy every set that is released, but I have to resist, these are a few cards I have made at team training recently and also the middle one from the wonderful Amanda Bates at the Craft Spa. :)

and another thing I have been really busy with are these rabbits !!!! I haven't sewed (except for on the odd scrapbook layout) for over 30 years. Hubby was on a Stag weekend in Dublin recently (yes he really is a little old for all that), and so my lovely friend Kathy came to babysit me and protect me from any moths or spiders lol. Kathy had bought us a "sewing project" this little kit of mother and baby rabbit. Kathy was very patient and kindly showed me how to use my sewing machine properly, but it has taken me every half an hour here, and hour there, to finish these rabbits over the last three weeks. They really have been a labour of love, but I am so pleased I have actually managed to make something for the first time since I was at school :) Looking at them, I can already see all the rookie mistakes, but I am still really pleased with them and they are now sitting on the spare bed....
