introducing nicholas waternoose... oh and happy halloween

Introducing Mr Nicholas Waternoose he is a happy chappy who likes to daydream and tell jokes, his favourite treat is jellybelly jelly beans (green of course) and he hopes to one day run a rehab pond for troubled tadpoles.

here he is posing for a photo with his new friend Lopsy Turnbull. Lopsy has been waiting patiently for a friend to play with and i get the feeling these two are going to have some good times together. what adventures do you suppose they might get up to? when i hear 'bumps in the night' i will know where to look *^_^* now onto matters of all things spooky. i feel like halloween has already happened around here because of our blog party hosted by miss Vanessa, boy that was fun! i have a habit of giving the girls teachers presents throughout the year to mark things like valentines day or easter etc... we usually make cards and give little treats. here are some photos to show what i came up with this year. i used the skull and bat as templates (they came off a broken head band we bought for the party) i then glued them to the front of some brown paper. simple i know! the end product looked like this, only two designs i am no artist let me tell you! add some writing and a little sketch of my own....

add some ghoulishly gorgeous chocolates and we're done. what do you think? after looking at all the other bloggers out there who are so creative and artistic i feel a bit embarrassed by my ability but my heart and soul goes into what i do and that's all that matters. by the way, i would like to send big kisses to those of you who visit me but dont leave comments. thanks for popping in every now and then, it means the world to me. mmwwwwhhhaa rosey

Hi Rosey, Thanks for popping by. I darent think about what Mr Waternoose and Lopsy may get upto.. It will make me blush! But he certainly has good taste if he likes Jelly Belly Beans! I like your cards very much, and anything handmade whether you think its good or not is always appreciated by the recipient, but I know exactly how you feel as I think my crafting is never good enough. Have a great Halloween, I cant wait to scare the little children (only teasing!) Or am I? LOL!
