Fun weekend.

It has been a lovely and happy weekend...Street dance followed by shopping, lunch and a fun walk through the autumnal woods yesterday, and then church this morning and a play area with friends this afternoon.  Perfect!
Crafting wise it is time for another Quirky Crafts challenge set by Cazzy 'Come to the Quirky Dark side' which means no cute images and using dark colours.  We have two sponsors this time so please go over and check the challenge out.  I was given 'Medusa' from the Stamping Boutique to work with so I coloured her with promarkers with the snakes in her hair coloured in red with sakura stardust added on top to make them 'pop' a little (it doesn't show up too well in the photo sadly). I used Hot off the press papers for the background, layered up to frame medusa. I then heat embossed red round the edge. I then added a black gem to the bottom left, and a tiny one on her sash and in the centre of the flower at the bottom. Finally I added the two 3D mulberry flowers and the ribbon. I am entering this tag into PTW 'flower power', and Crazy4challenges 'create a tag' challenges.
The next card was made for Less is More's 'hardware challenge', in this case the 'hardware' was a metal stocking charm.  The main image was actually a sticker from Bo bunny and the stamps were from Crafty Individuals. I am also entering this card into All sorts 'its a gift' as there are lots of gifts featured on the card and Penny's challenge 'Anything goes'.  That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone.
Love,
Caro

Hi Caro
glad you like the chocolate wraps. It's a great idea for all ages and a good fundraiser too. I'll write all the details and send you the templates later on. Don't want to burn the fish!!!
