Sketch Saturday #75 Happy halloween!!!

I'm up SO late this morning..... slept like a log!! my hubby left for work at 5 this morning, and I didnt notice he'd gone till about 8!! and let me tell you he is NOT quiet in a morning!!
Anyhoo now I've got to rush to catch up on a million and one things before the pumpkin carving I promised I'd do.....
good news is I'm off out tonight, so hubby can cope with all the lovely trick or treaters!! ha ha!!
If they are anything like last years I think he'd be better just turning all the lights out and pretending not to be in.....
we had this one group that came round, it was quite early in the night so we had plenty of mini sweet bags to go round..... then about an hour later they came back.... well by this time we'd had a few other 'visitors' so all we'd got left was crisps..... off they trotted a bit disgruntled but I suppose crisps was better than nothing.....
bugger me if they didnt come back AGAIN a bit later...well we'd got nothing by this time... so we very politely explained that they had already been twice, and that we really didnt have anything to offer them..... they wandered off mumbling to themselves, and we closed the door...... next thing we know half a dozen eggs have been hurled at the living room window!!!!! can you believe that!!!! little ****s !!
Trouble is my Son loves halloween, and we have to carve pumpkins and put them in the window EVERY year, and he stands there and waits for the trick or treaters!!!
any hoo.... as I said i'm off out..... hee hee!!
Sorry about the waffle..... lol!!
Here is my creation for this weeks Sketch Saturday The sketch is such a fun one this week... and we have a optional theme of 'HALLOWEEN'.....
As I'm not really likely to need a halloween card, I decided to make a little sweet tin, which we are going to take up to grannies in a bit..... (hope she doesn't think i'm making any 'witchy' suggestions!!)
Stuff: CC designs witchy emma
Coloured with promarkers
black and orange card stock
Stampin up ribbon
MM flowers
Chocolate Limes, and Blackcurrant and Liquorice sweets...YUM!

We are sponsored this week by THE CRAFT BARN... and the prize is a fabby cobweb embossing folder!!

I adore your tin and love how you got the sketch to fit within the design very clever,we had no trick or treaters because we live out of town but always get sweets just in case and then we have to eat them lol.
