Trick or Treat



I love the colours of Autumn ... I love to see little children dressed for Halloween and enjoying the innocent fun of it all ... I still remember my own son as a little boy deciding on the last minute that he would go with his friends 'trick or treating' and Mum would have to come up with a costume of sorts ... I always anticipated and was good at improvising! I can remember his little face when one of our neighbours gave him some sunflower seeds and not sweets ... he thought he was being given poison!! 
That was all so long ago ...  trick and treat had just begun to wing it's way across the ocean from the US ... before that we just had 'duck apple' ...
My card today is for the JUGS challenge .. a sketch challenge and I sort of turned is on its side ... this is the sketch ...

I haven't had the time to join in their challenges lately so I'm glad I will get this in before it finishes ...











Made a little treat cup too ...






















Love making these little flowers .... papers are (green) My Minds Eye and a digital paper 'Dinner Party' courtesy of Shabby Princess  ...  image from The Print Shop  program ... the rest is from my stash 
Enjoy your day my friends ....
Till soon

Lovely pair Ros, especially the flowers, I just feel like running back to my craft room and make one right now! I have been away so much this week and I really have lots of work to catch up, but I can't help myself but visiting all of you and admired all those pretty work. I saw your post for me too, thanks, and I hope you like it and can't wait to see what you come up with, one thing for sure, it is going to be pretty I know!

Fabulous Halloween card Ros! I am itching to make one myself.
Such sweet memories you have of your son. I am sure you have bunches. :)
