SPooOOoooOOky !!!!!

Heather here :)
Smiling still without having her coffee yet.
Hopefullly that is a good sign to the way the day will work out. I guess we shall see. Regardless, I know who is in charge and who has me in HIS hand and that I have nothing to worry about :D!
and THAT is a wonderful feeling!!!

Remember back when I had that peek for you leading up to the hop...    well, I guess it is about time I share it with you, eh?

If you don't have a clue what I am talking about, then this will be your first time seeing it.
{Please} consider yourself warned as it is an extra spooky house. you never know who is 
lurking around {or} inside...... bwaaahahahahhahahahaha

as the door creeeeeaaaakkkkkkssssss open our heart starts to beat a little faster. Should we run? Should we hide? Whatever are we going to do? It's too late now....

The door has finished opening..... and there she stands... 






Candy Corn Girl {hehehe. silly me, she's not scary!}
I created this card by using some scraps of embossed black cardstock my mom had received in a folder a few years ago (it was not a crafting folder, but from a real estate agent or something ) I finally used it! :) I cut the shapes out to fit the corners and inked it with Ink it Up white pigment ink. The BG paper was bazzil solid cardstock. I embossed the lines using my score pal and then inked over it with black. The web is stitched using white and black thread together. I poked holes with a thumbtack and then sewed it on. Next time I will plan it better and draw it out first :). The I added the little brad spider. The door was created with a door frame matt, (the size of an ATC) then a folded piece glued to it to make the door. I added a kickboard to the front of the door, a handdrawn window and a jackolantern brad. the doorknob is simply a gold brad. I inked around the door with the white ink. The inside was framed with black. I used scraps to make the wall and flooring. I had a $1 chandelier stamp from the michaels bin (OLD) that I stamped in the background. I Took my Candy corn girl colored wtih prismacolor markers and pre cut, and gently placed (glued) her inside the door. VOILA! there you have it :D

When getting cards ready for the hop the girls and I chatted often. My friend Vanessa said that she had some cards made with her and was so excited. I sent her a peek of this card and she quickly emailed me back {laughing} because we made nearly the exact same card!!!!

Don't you just LOVE it?!?! Oh my goodness. That ghost is hilarious. I got online today and guess what I found? SUPER BONUS!!!!!SHE POSTED THIS CARD TODAY AS WELL!!! Be sure to stop by Vanessa's blog and check out the deets and the sweet photos (she even has a pic up my card too :D hehehe)
