Welcome to BOO-ville

third in my Haunted house series
Got this file over at the Silhouette store

Design # 21539
ran the house through the
Tim Holtz embossing folder
Got this little bat stamp at Michaels
last year at the end of the season
it's by Craft Smart couldn't find a number on it
I stamped with versa mark ink then used
clear embossing to create the background
I stamped the bat and fussy cut it out some
glossy accents on the eyes and some
wink of stella on the body.
For the house it self I put some
silver glitter paper behind the windows
the clouds are a die from
the moon is a circle from
I inked this with Tim Holtz Distress inks
Scatted Straw and Orange marmalade
Sentiment from
You wouldn't believe
On All Hallow Eve
What lots of fun we can make,
With apples to bob,
And nuts on the hob,
And a ring-and-thimble cake.
