Happy Halloween!

Welcome to my  Haunted House!
Come visit it if you dare!    MWahhh ha ha!

Simon Says Stamp and Show  challenge is to show a house. I knew I had to throw together a quick haunted house today before Halloween had passed!

The house is made from Authentique pattern paper. I used tissue tape to hold together the seams and the roof on the house. Let's just say if the wolf came a knocking my little piglet wouldn't be safe. hee hee...

Then I stampe the tree and tombstones and cut them out.  (Hindsight I probably would have done my tree on acetate.)  The bat is cut out from black cardstock and covered in tissue tape.  The letters are from Stampendous clear set.

**** Edited to add the house with acetate tree****

The ghost is a cheerio inside of tissue paper.  (I was eating my honey nut cheerios this morning and thought it would work out!)

I added some fake spiderwebs from decorations around the house. I won't ever use this again... it is soo sticky and kept getting stuck on everything. :)

I hope you have a wonderful spooky fun filled day! We are going trick or treating later. I can't wait to see all the fun Halloween costumes. My youngest is a dead prom queen and her costume looks great! She is happy about it!  (A little glimmer mist, distressing, ribbon and stickers from mom!)

Have a spooktacular day!
