Halloween Invitations - Coffin with Severed Finger

here is a look at the invitations for i have made for Ashleigh's Halloween Party

I made the coffins using a coffin template found on Skip to my Lou's blog see here
and my very talented friend Anna made the severed fingers for me using white Craylola Model Magic which I aged using walnut ink. I got the idea for the fingers from who else but Martha Stewart see here for Martha's invitation.  I have just used crushed up leaves to lay the fingers on, giving the feeling of them being dug up ...
I just need to add the details which I will on a coffin shaped card to go into the lid.

here are all the fingers ready waiting to go into their coffins... don't you just love all those fingers.

 HERE are all the photos from the party

Happy Halloween to you all

WCMD - what a day!

I would like to start off by saying Thank you to all of the lovely ladies who joined me yesterday at ACP for our WCMD Marathon. What a fabulous day  - we had a very full day creating starting at 9am and going through until 5pm with a few breaks we had to keep our strength up with some yummy food including the very tasty cupcakes

so now that ourWCMD marathon is over here is a look at what we created. I am sure all of the ladies slept well last night i know i did after being on my feet for most of the day and with only 4 hours sleep (i hosted a crop at ACP the night before)

for more card inspiration please visit the WCMD site and see what card makers from around the world have created.
