Hide Your Candy

This morning I was seated at the table, a mug of steaming coffee in hand, reading the morning news when I heard something curious. Coming from outside I could faintly hear “twiker tweeeeeeet.” This confused me as the Night of Sweet Delights was still a fortnight away. I threw on a cloak and went outside to investigate. Sure enough coming down the lane were two short figures carrying sacks. As they got closer I saw that they were not human. Checking to ensure I had a dagger in my boot, should the creatures prove hostile, I approached them.

This card was created for the reminder about the Just Some Lines October Challenge that is happening now! The theme this month is Halloween. Come play along with a JSL image for a chance to win a digi!

I started this card by colouring the Just Some Lines image “Voodoo Doll - Everyone Needs a Friend, using my trusty Prismacolor pencils. The candy pieces were cut using Create-a-Critter 2 whilst the candy border was cut using the Artbooking cartridge which I recently acquired in a Guild Raid last month. The sentiment I printed off my computer, earning me +496 technological exp points.

On the inside I printed the top sentiment from my computer again. The bottom one is a Unity stamp and the candy corn I cut out of a scrap of the patterned paper that I used on the front.

I stamped the envelope using the Dylusions “Further Around the Edge” set. Spooky. 
These candy kids will munch on into the following challenges:

It turns out they were enchanted dolls, escaped from a child’s house who had been dabbling in magics she didn’t understand. The child must have been talking about the Night of Sweet Delights to the dolls, who got confused thinking it was already happening. I invited them into the Guild Hall to see if we could find a settlement for the wayward pair.

Have you thought about writing a book? I was totally sucked into the story....that's a gift. I loved it and it had a happy ending, which is better than having to use that dagger in her boot, lol.

LOVE this voodoo doll image and the great design. So cute adding polka dots to the candy. Fabulous. Thanks for playing with us over at Loves Rubberstamps!!!
