Trick or Treat Maggie

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Hope you are all keeping safe & warm in this awful weather we are having in the UK. We have it bad up here in the North East, a lot of people in Morpeth have had to be evacuated from their homes due to flooding.......again the river banks have burst. We have so many roads that are causing chaos, I even went the long way round to take my youngest 6th Form today to avoid the high winds on the dual carriageway. 

Anyhoo onto my wee creation today which is not a card, yeah check me out lol. I have this plan this year that I'm going to dress Payton up for Halloween & bake cakes for the tricker treaters & give them 1 of these each...............with sweeties in :0)
We dont normally do anything for Halloween but I thought we would start a new tradition for the next generation. These are tubes I've made to pop some sweeties or choccies in. 

This one is for Payton & the others that I make will be a little bit more simpler.
The witches shoes are from my stash as is the broom.

The chocs will get replaced with choc buttons for Payton ;0)
I have attached some cord for an handle so they can carry it around. The purple tissue were what my last lot of goodies were wrapped in from Dies To Die For.

I have used the sweet 'Sitting Witch Tilda' from Magnolia. I have 4 halloween stamps & I have only ever inked up 2 which was 2 years ago, my plan is to use all 4 this year.....lol.
She has been coloured with copics & prisma pencil. I paper pieced her hair ribbon & the band on her hat.

I have used purple & black card from my stash, ribbon & button is also from my stash. I used a Magnolia Doo Hickey Fence to go around the bottom.
The papers is also from Magnolia, I got it from Sir Stamp A Lot 2 years ago when I got the stamps but I cant find it on their website anymore :0(

I will be doing a tutorial for these within the next week if anyone is interested in making any. They are so simple to make & hopefully the wee kiddies will love 'em.

Well thats all from me my lovelies, stay safe & thank you soooooooo much for stooping by. I'm off to some hopping around now............:0)
Toodles mmwah xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Challenges I'm Entering..............
Magnolia-licious - Buttons (button on the bow at the top)
Chaos Craftroom - Paper Piecing  oops its paper piecing on animals, that will teach me to read lol
