Using my Halloween card parts...

I always have a pile of card parts to use. Some have been in the pile so long that I have no idea where they came from! That's the case with these spooky houses. I think maybe they were cut with my Silhouette, but I'm just not sure. Anyway, I liked them, so I decided to use them this year.

I used a starry sky background die to cut the stars from some dark purple paper. The purple is actually variegated IRL, but it looks quite solid in the photo. I cut the moon out of my sky with a stitched circle die and then cut another circle out of pale yellow CS. After inking it around the edges, I adhered it into the opening.

I used some wavy border dies to cut my dark gray paper to create the area around my house and a small fence die (which was part of another die set) to finish off my spooky scene. The "Happy" was heat-embossed and "Halloween" is a die-cut.

On the inside of my card, I cut a deckle-edged panel and inked the edges with some purple distress ink.

After stamping my sentiment, I added a few die-cut bats and I was done.

I have been down and out with a bad cold the last few days, but I'm definitely feeling better today. The fact that it is warm and sunny out helps, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
