Just before i go.....

Bit of a long post so sit down grab a cuppa Well im all ready for the off being half term the girls and i are going to stay with dad ,and go visit mum,which will be nice as yeasterday suffered a fall and apparently has a face looking like she has done 3 rounds with Frank Bruno .Dad rang yesterday to say he popped in after she returned from A&E,he said if it was you or i wed be in pain and have huge headache .Because mum has alzhiemers they have given her pain killers regularly for next few days,As the staff keep saying to dad it looks painful and all mum can do when they look at is her smile and wave bless her .Hasn't unfortunately got a clue to what has happened didnt even know she had been to the hospital which is so sad surpose a blessing.They havent how ever showed her, her face and arent going to which is a good thing.But by the time i go visit on sunday im sure it will be out in bloom.
Well im all packed boxes of crafts to take down for the first Alzhiemers bazaar.
Then thursady eve just sat down with cuppa whilst packing stuff away my friend popped in with a couple of bits for me to take ,then asked if i could possibly make her a Halloween Door hanger and card to match for her son as hed love it and it is also his birthday on halloween.Just can't believe it 2nd time this week i have had to make the same card and project again which never normally happens as i do one off cards usually .So yesterday i got to work and before giving it to her yesterday forgot to take nice photo. (so the photo below is the one i previously made but exactly the same without the bag )
I would like to enter this into this weeks challenge over at Stampin for the Weekend Which this weeks theme is Fangtastic Halloween Cards so im going to enter this door hanger and card made for my friend Heide's son!Do hope you & he likes it.... hope so!
The door hanger i painted with good old Tesco acrylic copper paint this is great for craft projects and at a grand old price of 99p for bottle very good value these usually situated in kids crafts if anyone interested .The shimmer of the paint was ideal for my background for the black dracula decoupage that is then fixed to a tag.The door hanger itself is made from MDF.The card i used exactly the same decouapge tag design.the embellishments pumkins are from my stash from rak .
Well thankyou so much for all your lovely comments from my blogin friends i will this week while at dads hopefully have time to return the messages .As i wont have any crafting to do!So Will have to occupy my craft withdrawl with bloggin well my excuse im keeping to it!lol
