Brrr...its a bit chilly....time for a quilt!

Hello there,

Well, if you are in the UK I hope you survived the storm on Sunday night! It was really windy here in Farnham and we lost two of our fence panels....apart from that everything else survived ok.

It's also been Halloween this week, so I hope you all had a spooky time! Last weekend I hosted a Halloween themed afternoon tea for my friends.....

 
 
I really love Halloween afternoon teas, you get to be so creative! For this tea we had snail wraps and skull cheese biscuits. We indulged in eyeball cake bites, ghost biscuits and cobweb millionaire shortbreads to name a few of the sweet treats!
 
 
To find out more and to see more scrummy photos pop by the Tea with Me and Friends afternoon tea blog!
 
So, on with this week's challenge from My Time to Craft...this week the weather seems to have got a bit colder and so you might have got your winter quilt out. To mirror the colder weather we'd like to see some quilting on your cards this week....all you need to do is make your background look like a quilt!

 
I've gone with a pink and brown colour combo that I love - I think it looks so sweet, especially when topped with a cake or two! My image is from Digi Stamp Boutique and I have coloured it with my Promarkers - adding a little sparkle with my Stickles. I've also added some faux stitching to the card and a printed sentiment.
 
Pop by the My Time to Craft website for more fab inspiration from the DT.

I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Thank you for popping by today!
