Probably Christmas Stockings - but maybe cute little socks for a new baby's feet or possibly even fishnets and garters!

Halloween Inspired!

Hello and Happy Daring Cardmakers Day!
Thank you for sharing your 'Wear it Pink' cards for Joanne's breast Cancer Aware challenge last week

It's Dawn here this time and as this weekend will be full of Ghoulies and Ghosties and Four-legged Beasties, I thought we could make 
Halloween Inspired
our starting point. So you could make a traditional kind of Halloween card, but it doesn't have to be ghosts and witches, instead, you could choose to use  Halloween colours (black, purple and orange) or Autumn things like pumpkins and apples, or creatures connected to the season such black cats, cute owls, or a starry sky.
 
I'm really looking forward to seeing your ideas but here's what the team have made to get you in the mood...

Wear it pink

Thank you for sharing your sweet creations with us in Svenja’s confectionery-themed challenge last week!
Joanne here with this week’s challenge. 
October is breast cancer awareness month and today is Wear It Pink day. 
Let’s mark the day by making a card featuring somebody or something wearing pink - it might be a woman in a pink outfit, a teddy with a pink bow, a child in a pink bobble hat, a dog with a pink collar… you get the idea! Baby pink, flamingo, raspberry, neon pink, any shade will do.
Here's some pink inspiration from the team:
