Spooky Greetings!

I really need to get my timing sorted - it's not good trying to blog a new make when cooking the tea - if I dash off its 'cos the yorkshire puds are burning - lol!!

Here is a card I have made for one of the boys friends whose birthday is on Halloween:

You know when you have an idea in your head how you want a card to look and this is the closest I can get - I wanted it to look as if the house was up on a hill. The house is a digi from Spyder and have used basic grey eerie backing paper and then torn and layered black card across the bottom. The image is an Elzybells one (it also had a witch on - but I cut her off - just to show the 2 boys - to try and represent my sons). I have downloaded a spooky font and printed off the greeting and then distressed it. Phew - think I need a cup of tea now, sometimes I think tooooo much - lol!!! (p.s. - the sentiment is meant to be cut at a jaunty angle).

Hope you like it.

I would like to enter it into the following challenges:
I did it creations - spooky
Incy Wincy - anything goes
Paper Cutz - anything goes
Stamp Something - celebrate (birthday)
Catch the bug - anything goes.
Delightful Sketches- purple green & black (on the backing paper)

I think this is ok for Spyders challenge - if not Lyn just let me know - and I'll remove my link:-)

Thanks for looking. xx
