The second card is similar to the card I made this week for Friday sketchers. I used a Friday sketchers sketch, K&co Hopscotch PP, ribbon from stash and computer generated sentiment.

Hand stitching using Aida threads in back stitch.
The image I used is one of the Halloween cupcake's digi stamps, which are available HERE.
Oh well will just have to keep playing! lol!
The 3 pumpkins is an image from the pumpkin set, printed in 2 different sizes, coloured with watercolours again and glossy accents. The effect on these was better, unfortunately couldn't get a good shot to share.
For the little treat bag, and it really is little! I used an ATC poly bag to hold the sweets. The topper is 2 sizes of labels nesties with an extra layer of white cs between them, folded in half. The image is one of the new 'spots' I am working on. The image has been coloured with watercolour paints and finished with glitter glue.

Oh my word I just found this post sitting in the drafts!!! This is my September mini book for the C4E website challenges!!! And I know I have at least 2 challenge card posts that I have missed! How bad am I??? LOL!!
Ok This mini book will document My eldest primary school years, so it is not complete yet!
The photo on the front cover was taken at pre-school.
The PP is daisy bucket's In The Meadow collection, this was the C4E April kit this year. You can still get your hands on these papers and the April kit HERE.
The layout of the album is the same all the way through. The first page will have a photo of the school, when I remember to take my camera!! Then there is a photo page for first day in the year photo, an envelope for school reports.
And then a page to record the details, year, class, friends, favourite subjects, achievements. This page I designed myself to look like a page from a note book with teachers handwriting.
All titles and words were printed. The Base pages were made from white CS and covers are chipboard.
The very last pages are for the end of year 6, I plan to take a photo on his last day and write in where he is heading to next, what his hopes and fears are as he moves onto the next stage.

Hope you had a great weekend! It's been a bit hectic here the last week, seems like I haven't drawn breath all week!! lol! I was a bit late getting this week c4e recipe challenge posted (sorry) Hopefully it's worth the wait!!
This weeks recipe is......
1. use the sketch
The image has been coloured with watercolour paints. I have added funky foam detail (nose & ears) I wanted felt for this but didn't have the right colour! Finished with a little glitter glue.
Over the last month I have been working on a new product range for C4E called spots. Spots are a range of journaling, image and word spots. These will be available as pdf downloads and printed cardstock products. I have also started to add them to kits! The October kit and October crop kit both have some in. The great thing about these spots is that I am able to match colours to the kits!
If you would like to try some out there is a free try me sheet HERE!!!

I have used a 1" circle punch to cut out the CS buttons, attached a smaller circle of PP then added a couple of holes with a brad tool. To finish I knotted some ribbon through them.
The sentiment was punched with a circle punch.
