BC236 - Let's Go Haunting

Happy Friday! - Today is way better then how last Friday started out. - I want to thank everyone who sent well wishes and prayers for my mom. She is doing much better. Her BP at her doctor's visit on Wednesday was 124/80. Praise God! - Atleast we know the medication is working. The doctor even took her off some of the stuff they gave her at the hospital and that made her feel good as she has never been one to take a lot of medication.

I'm slowly catching up with e-mails, commenting etc...although our Internet was off most of 2 days this week when the Fiber Optic lines were cut at a Construction site 50 miles out of town. Twice! You'd think they would have been more careful after the first time. - Anyway it's time to get down to business, mainly the Bloggers Challenge. This week Lisa gave us the theme: Happy Haunting. - Since I love Halloween this one was easy for me.

I used a similar layout with this same stamp a few weeks ago so if this look familiar that is why. You can check the other card out here:

This time I made a standard sized card, used different DP, Added ribbon, drippy goo punch, Baker's Twine and move the orientation of the Stars a little. I also added gems to the Owls eyes.

So now it's your turn to give this challenge a try. You can link up your creation here:

Happy Halloween!

I love your cards, Ida! And I mean ALWAYS! You do fabulous work. These papers and colors are wonderful and the image awesome. I don't know why I never think to use stars on my cards. They're so often, as is the case here, the perfect addition. I'm glad to hear your Mom's BP is under control. Sometimes all those extra meds do more harm than good.
