Ding, Dong! The witch is dead!!! HAHA

Hard to believe that October 1st is only a few days away!!! I've been seeing lots of Christmas cards posted lately on SCS and on everyone's blogs. I just can't go there yet so I thought I'd make some Halloween cards. My friend, Melanie, came over last Friday for a few hours and we got to play. I had already half made this the day before. I had gotten this little Spook Alley stamp set with the witches feet and I just had to do a Halloweeny Wizard of Oz card. I used to watch that movie on TV every year when I was little. I had these little chipboard houses by Maya Road and I was like "OMG, perfect!!!" I painted it black and stamped the web from the CTMH Creepy Cobwebs set in white. The little spider is from the same set and he's embossed with a black velvet marker and has rhinestone eyes (of course!). The web border punch was something I picked up at Michael's and the paper is from Basic Grey's Eerie collection. I have to admit that I messed up the bottom and I'm still not happy about it! I had punched the border out on front of the card and sponged it black so you could see the purple coming out behind it. Well, I adhered the patterned paper over part of the punched border and could not get it unstuck!!! I got pissed and cut off the border and then punched the back instead. I lost that extra effect and it looks kinda funny with the paper being all the way to the bottom but having a border on the top. UGH!!! The only thing I was completely happy with was my layered flower... but how could I screw that up? LOL I was having fun thinking of different sayings to go with this card like "You killed her..." on the front and "with your kindness" inside. I ended up with HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Original, huh? LOL
