Toffee Apples

Yuck - I can't think of anything worse - toffee and apples - NO in my house they do not go together - I never forget as a kid being at a party and them coming out - I was told I would like them - took one bite and ewww I still shiver at the thought!!! 

Anyway I can't believe we are at day 11of the 13 days of Halloween over at Simply Challenged Challenges - I have to say I really don't want this to end!! 

Simply Challenged Challenges

So the theme on this occasion is 'sweets' we either have to use the colours of candy corn (yellow, orange and white) or Caramel Apples (Lime Green and Caramel) - well tonight I have sat there and coloured a few images in using both options and I have to say I fell for the Caramel Apple!!! 

So some details - The paper is Halloween Grunge from Whimsy Stamps - I have to say I LOVE the designs but the papers are a bit 'shiny' for me - not sure how much I will be using them only because of the shine!  The flower was a free gift with some petals I purchased a while ago - I never ever thought I would use this colour!!! The lace is from my stash and coloured with my copics - I also tried to ruffle it as its always something that I have tried and failed at - but on this occasion it worked quite well (my little tip for this is if your using narrow tape put two lies of it down - it sticks better!!).  The goo across the top was sent to me by a very kind friend - I have been trying too get hold of the punch for a while and she sent me some just to help me out - I also coloured it with my copics!

Oh yes and I so had to use the Bride of Chrisenstein Betty  available from the Simply B store! - she is my all time FAVOURITE right now - I don't know why - maybe its cause she was my first one to colour with green skin?!?! Well I decided to keep this quite simple as I have a little plan to make something 'big' with her - but then again she may be on her way to a special family member in the morning!!! 

She was coloured with copics (as well as everything else that is coloured!)

E31, E33, YG21, YG25

Well I really hope you like her and I hope that more of you may play along with us over at Simply Challenged Challenges - I have had SO much fun once again with this challenge and although I can't wait for the next challenge I don't want this to end!!!
