The Final Countdown

I'd like to start by welcoming my new followers and thank them so much for becoming followers, I will be round to check your blogs later if I haven't already done so xx

Yes its the final countdown, Harrison and Stephen (grandson and son) will be arriving later on today - yippee.  The final preparations have begun, lots of baking done - check, Halloween decorations up - check, Ball pool blown up and filled - check and cot up and ready - check!!  Ready and waiting.  You can tell by my excitement that I can hardly wait, I get really envious of people that have their grandchildren nearby (like my DH) and think it is the greatest thing.  I would love Harrison to be closer but that is not going to happen so I really do treasure it when he comes up here or I go down there.  I have made some cards for this week as I don't think I will have any time to craft until Friday or the week-end (no I'm not complaining) and I still would like to post something.  Here is one I made earlier, so to speak:

Its a little acrylic set I bought last Christmas and I can't remember who by.  I have coloured with my copics and added true snow and glamour dust.  Used my edgeabilities for the border the papers are nitwit and the ribbon and button are from a local haberdashery.  I have coloured and stickled the candy.  I will enter the following challenges:

Thanks for looking, take care xx
