Mid month inspiration at Imagination Crafts

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and enjoying your week.  I can't say that I am enjoying getting up in the dark.  I really hate this time of year when I have to get up for work and it is still pitch black outside.  The weather is not being that kind to us either.  It has turned really cold in the last few days.  Anyway, enough of my moaning and groaning.  

We are now halfway through October and time to share a little inspiration for our challenge over at Imagination Crafts Challenge blog.  Our theme for October is:
Don't forget you can join in with any halloween themed project but if you do use any Imagination Crafts products you could win a £40 voucher to spend at their on line store.  How great is that?  Just check out the challenge blog for all the details.

I decided to make a couple of little treat bags.  For the purple background I took a piece of white card and used distress ink in various colours.  I also used the honeycomb stencil to add a bit of a pattern.  Distress ink was then used through a Halloween stencil to create the little picture.  The cat was also part of the stencil but I used sparkle medium on acetate and then cut him out when he was dry.  Some glittery lettering, ribbon and gems finished the bags.  
Here is a closer look:
