Spooky Christmas

So here are the other two crafty bis I was working on yesterday. However first of all let me show you the completed autopsy lab rat!!
The mouse itself is knitted, and the organs are felted. I wish yo show this at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes

Now onto the papercrafting - first up is a glass decoration for halloween (it could also be turned into a hanging decoration). I do not send cards for halloween but still like to create for the occasion.

The image is 'Just an Apple' from The Stamping Chef. This was printed onto plain white card and cut into a scalloped circle. The two edges were torn and then this was layered onto another scalloped circle in dark mahogany card. The image was coloured using promarkers. Finally a ribbon was added to allow the decoration to be tied to a glass.
This is being entered for:

And finally the second of this weeks Christmas makes:
This is a very golden christmas card. The image is from Honey and Hugs Festive Frolics clear stamp set and was stamped using pretty colour black ink and heat embossed with gold Heat it up powder. He was then coloured using watercolour pencils (which were blended with the aqua marker blender). A thick gold ribbon was added to the centre of the card with the image layered over the top. Stars and the sentiment were stamped and heat embossed in gold.
This card is being entered for:
