Halloween witches and some cute cards (not mine)

Just thought I'd start with sharing a picture of my ehm... scary.... witches. They were going to a halloween party for the first time, and had a great time. And I don't think we'll have to buy them sweeties for a while.... lol... they were both over the moon with all the sweets people were giving them... they got so much they couldn't eat it all.
Maja was so thrilled when I told her that I'd found a card challenge for children. The greeting farm blog had no less than three challenges for those under the age of 13 last week. Maja entered the Colour challenge with this wedding card.
She chose to use the couple from the caketopper set for this card, but she really wanted to use Alice from the Wonderland set too, so she entered the Bling challenge with a card with Alice on.
She did almost everything herself... the stamping, colouring, choosing the papers and layout. The only thing I helped her with was cutting the papers to the right size and punching the leaf border on the Alice card.
Susie didn't want to miss out.... so I helped her stamp some images that she could colour in and gave her some pieces of paper. She did all the colouring and gluing by herself... she even punched the hearts out herself. She needed a bit help with getting the excess glitter off the card though... I think it turned out quite good for her very first card. She entered this in the Bling challenge.
Well, have to keep this short... I've left Susie downstairs watching a film... don't think it will be long until she notices I'm gone....

Litt skumle, men egentlig mest søte disse halloween heksene dine...hihi;-)
Veldig fine kort du lager, og med god hjelp av din datter ser jeg;-) Hun ville nok hjelpe deg litt..hehe;-)
Ha en fin dag!
Skal snart ned og passe barnebarnet, og "leke" med alle de nye lekene han fikk i går!

Nå ble mormor helt forhekset av to skumle hekser. Gotter ble det nok av skjønner jeg, og selskapet var vellykket.
De kortene ungene har laget var bare helt skjønne. Maja er jo en liten kunstner, det har vi jo sett for lenge siden, og nå har Susie også begynt. Koselig.
Nå er det tilbake til malerkostene her også. Men det blir ikke på papir,mere sånn på treverk.
Klem til dere alle.

Oh my goodness.. they look so cute in their costumes! LOVE that little Suzie.

They are really growing up in their mother's footsteps.. Maja's cards are perfect.. and her coloring is so nice! Is there a place where we can vote on her cards for the contest?

Love their costumes, they sure were perfect little witches! :)
Maja is a natural born card maker, her cards are fabulous! I especially love the mushrooms with Alice, great touch!
Susie's card is very glittery, she is also an awesome card maker!

Så kjekt at dere var fornøyd med pasta-ovnsretten! Ja en kan sikkert putte mye forskjellig oppi der...alt etter smak og hva man har;-)
Kjekt når det er noe ungene også liker;-)
