A week to go....

...Hello there...Happy Wednesday! So this time next week it'll be Halloween...and then before we know it, it'll be Christmas time! Wow this year has flown by!

This time of year also means its almost my bosses Birthday.... I am very lucky, as my boss is wonderful and so I always try and make her a fab present for her Birthday. This year I am appealing to her sweet tooth with iced butterfly biscuits and fab chocolate spoons that I've made using chocolate moulds and then iced with Viv's name and random squiggles! The mould is fantastic and so easy to use...anyone with some chocolate can make their own chocolate spoons!
 The mould comes from the brilliant "Baked by Me"....a website run by the lovely Iris, they sell all sorts from delicious cookie mixes to a brilliant range of chocolate moulds, and lots of lovely china. The prices are really reasonably and the customer service is awesome too!
Here are the pretty butterfly biscuits...

Right, enough sweet stuff...time for a card challenge!
I've gone for another spooky card today...this time using a fab free image from "The Enchanting Art of Heather Valentin"
I love this image...I'm not sure if its the cute hat, the cat (which I think I've somehow made a bit evil looking!!) or the huge pumpkin....but I love it! Thank you Heather!
I've gone with typical Halloween colours - black, purple, green and orange. Using a combination of plain backing papers and ribbon. My image has been coloured using my Promarkers and I created the purr-fect sentiment on my laptop!
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Top Tip Tuesday - Halloween
Tuesday Throwdown - Halloween
Papertake Weekly - Fright Night - Boo!
Pop by all these fab blogs to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created this week!
Thanks for popping by today,
