Before we show you our cards let us just remind you again not to forget to call back tomorrow for the final day of the blog hop............

Now let us introduce you to 'Marvin with Candy Apple'!!!!!

Hi there, Emma here!

For my card I have used papers from Nitwits and I have distressed and glittered all edges...

...This gorgeous image is called 'Marvin with Candy Apple', he is so gorgeous, I loved colouring him! I have used Promarkers and chalks to colour this cutie....

...I made a banner from some metal letters I have had in my stash for ages!...

...I cut out my own stars and glittered the edges, and then I added some gems to the centres.

Thanks for looking!

Big hugs

Hi there, Susan here...

Well what a week, I hope you are all enjoying the blog hop and all the lovely cards you are seeing on each members blogs!

I have used an older sketch from Crafts 4 Eternity. My backing papers are from Bearlymine and Nitwits. All edges have been distressed.

What do you think of this little cutie, isn't he just gorgeous, we all love him to bits. He is called as if you don't know already 'Marvin with Candy Apple'. I have used Pro-Markers and chalks to colour him.

The leaves I punched out and coloured to look like autumn colours then put crackle glaze on the top. I think its very effective! The sentiment I made on the computer.

This array of pumpkins are from Nitwits.

My lollypops are from Nitwits and I have put crackle glaze on the top.

Thank you for taking the time to look at our cards, don't forget to come back tomorrow!!

Love Susan
