Halloween

I am one of those who loves Halloween and have done for years! I have lived in my current house for 8 years now and have had a Halloween party every year with my kids we love it! We will definitely be 'trick or treating' again on October 31st and it's a Saturday so it will be less of a rush to get organised for all the themed food and games!

Anyway, Melissa over on MSE set a challenge to make a Halloween or Monster card and I came up with this one today.

This is the recycled swing card from last months card swop on Crafty place that went really wrong! I managed to cover up all the awful mistakes and I actually quite like it now!! I would have been happy to send this one if I had come up with this card in the first place!

On the front is a ghost that was 'squeezed' for me ages ago by Choccy (thanks hun!), stuck onto a punched scallop circle (paper form a scrapbook set in poundland, with a little bit of doodling on the outline with a black glitter pen). I used a mixture of punched and bought paper flowers with a couple of brads. On the 'backside' I used another scalloped circle run through the swiss dots folder in the cuttlebug, decorated with 2 bats cut and embossed with the cuttlebug (hadn't used it for ages so getting my money out of it again today!)Now I just need to decide who I am gonna send it to!
