Halloween cards (theme thursday autumn)

k

I got out some orange paint today and made these autumnal backgrounds...of course Autumn includes Halloween. My family like Halloween as its the start of a busy birthdays month then of course its Christmas not long after. I dislike trick or treat though as I think its just an excuse for people to cause trouble...we treat Halloween as a time to meet the neighbours and share sweets and of course have a bit of fun decorating the house with pumpkins...it will soon be here as the nights draw in....be sure to check out the other cards relating to Autumn over at Theme Thursday. All stamps used are available from Scrollswork.

Oooohhh I love them both! But I really like the one with the raven. I am so looking forward to these colors being splashed all over the trees and the ground. Wonderful job!

Love the crow one.

I asked at the Broadford Rag Tag today about Chicken patterns & the pattern is £5 the kit £8. If you get a kit you have to take a pattern from the kit...go to the website http://ragtagntextile.org.uk & email, but I think you go thru to the Balmacara workshop so explain it was Fiona in Broadford thru me who quoted you. (confused?!!!!!)Maybe ask for a photo to see of you actually like the Chicken! (I couldn't see one on the rather new website.)Just an idea! ;)

The raven card is wonderful-- the backround textures have a great flow.
