Creative card crew something spooky

Hello everyone I hope you are all well! Here's a question for you... has anyone tried Zumba for the Wii? OMG it nearly killed me! I'm not the most coordinated of peeps so I looked like a complete idiot trying to copy the moves and failing miserably but despite all that there was no way I could even manage the 20 min beginner work out! 5 mins and I was nearly on my back exhausted! I guess it is all in the name of fitness!
Onto the more calming and restful side of me though, crafting (a much less strenuous activity!) our challenge for the next 2 wks at Creative card crew is something spooky and we are sponsored by the oh so fab Simon says stamp.

I have made a halloween treat bucket just ready for goodies! The bucket was one I got with some smellies in last xmas. I haven't done much to the bucket itself but I have given it a little floral makeover and made my fab halloween tag to tie on.

My gorgeous tag has been made with echo park apothecary papers and another one of those super fab digis from Krista over at saturated Canary. My lace, button, gems and ribbon are from stash and I have created my own charm and bead dangly with some bits I picked up on ebay. My image has been coloured with Prismas and my fabulous sentiment is one from the super waltzingmouse stamps again.

My dotty wired ribbon I bought from the local charity shop and my flowers are a flat one from stash inked and glittered and a black rose from wild orchids. My pumpkin charm is also from stash.
I would like to enter this into Hooked on craft challenges anything but a card, Pink elephants photo inspiration, Paper shelters halloween, Charisma black and orange, Fussy and fancy halloween, Stampin with the dragon fall colours, Challenge up your life halloween, 2 sisters halloween, Catch the bug halloween anything but a card, Stamp scrap & doodle round things, Quirky crafts halloween and sparkles forum halloween.
For those who wanted to see some evidence of our crazy work day on saturday....

Here is my boss dressed as Michael Jackson sampling in the street! He got pretty hot in that by the end of the day.

Here is me in the famous Cheryl Cole attire with my fab friend Khaled dressed as bob Marley!

And here I am with another work friend called Becky who also dressed as Cheryl but in the opposite colours so that was lucky! We were the Cheryl twins for the day!
Thanks again for coming by my blog folks, hope you can join us in our spooky challenge!
Hugs to all
