Trick or Treat!

Earlier in the week I showed a little halloween card I had made. Well I have now made another 18 for the girls to give/send to all their little friends. Not much stamping involved but they still took a couple of hours to do! Popped a picture of them in too with the "Trick or Treat" sentiment. The images were purchased from Marieke's Etsy store.

Halloween isn't a big thing in the UK but my girls just love it and any excuse to dress up and eat more sweets! We have been lucky enough to visit Florida twice in October and also go to the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween event at Disney's Magic Kingdom which was so much fun.

And all the yummy treats to go with the cards!
Thought i'd show you this picture of the girls which was taken back in 2006. Wow, where does the time go and my little baby was only 7 months old in this picture.
and two years later....
Thank you to sweet Lolo for passing the Autumnal - "I love your blog" award to me. Also thank you to my friend Pops for passing these two cheeky chappies my way!

Now I am going to pass these two cheeky Monkey's to lots of Crafty Monkey's. This award is for you Zoe, Hannah and all the children who join in with their challenges. There are too many children to list but you all know who you are so get your Mum's to post it up on your blog. All of your gorgeous creations sure make me smile!

The girls are on half-term next week so I'll be around but probably won't be posting as often. Zoe and I are off to see the new High School Musical 3 film tomorrow which we are both really looking forward too.

Before I go I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all...... Thank you for taking the cute penguin from my blog and giving him a new home on yours but more importantly thank you for spreading the word and supporting Breast Cancer Awareness.

Have a great weekend and i'll be back Sunday with my card for the next High Hopes Challenge.

Update: As one High Hopes hop ends another begins... Can you find the Diva who has the yummy candy now? Click the links on the right to see if you can find it!

Wonderful cards and treats Nikki! I admire your staying power making 18 of them and in only two hours! I'd have been there all day LOL. The girls look great in the photos, they're so cute and I'm sure their friends are going to be so pleased with their treats. Chris x

Wow so much nice treats, halloween is not big in Sweden, we have never been doing that at all, but the stores are selling heaps of syuff, and some children are walking around and play trick and treat here!

Have a nice weekend,


Kristine said...

Hi Nikki! Those are all so cute! =) Our kids' classes won't be having parties or anything for halloween. I think they are allowing them to wear a funky hat, but no other costume. Anyway, that sure is a super cute photo of your girls! I have the same kind of photo from when MY baby was about 5 months old in a pumpkin suit =)

Great cards and treats. We don't celebrate Haloween but just like your girls mine take any chance to dress-up and have candy.
I used to watch Marieke's blog, but she has deleted it. To bad!
