Haunted House.....

Fall is my favorite time of the year.......I love living in Chicago and experiencing 4 seasons each year. I get bored with being hot all the time.....and get bored of the cold. So spring and fall jump in at just the right time! I know some people think I am crazy, but I love it! Something about the cooler temps, warm clothes, and the coziness of the house just gets to me. I love the smell of the furnace when you turn it on for the first time and my scented candles. I love putting out my pumpkins, planting my Mums, and decorating the house for Halloween. So to celebrate my favorite time of the year, I have created a little Haunted House......ok it's not that haunted, but still. : ) Can it be a cute haunted house?? I used Noel Mignon's 31st Kit, (sold out) and my JustRite, Witch Way to the Treats, set. (Also, sold out) The JR stamp was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with some glittery green powder. I used my Spellbinder's Nestibilities to cut out the circles. I created a fence using my Martha Stewart punch, a tree with some "scary" spider webs on it.
The house was cut using my newest Cricut cartridge, Winter Wonderland. (At least I think that is the name of the new cartridge...) I am planning on making a few more to decorate my classroom. I think the kids will get a kick out of them!

Happy Tuesday to y'all! : )

I agree! Idaho also has all four season! Fall is my favorite... Still a little warm during the day but a little crisp at night. And Fall colors are the best!

People always tell me I'm crazy. I LOVE it when it's cool and kinda gloomy! I love the rain. I love turning on the fireplace & lighting my delicious candles. I LOVE to feel cozy in my house! You can't do those things when it's hot & sunny! So, I DO understand!

Love your card! I just got that set, too & haven't had a chance to play with it yet--but I love that little girl! Your haunted house is just fabulous! I always love what you do...

...and thanks for visiting me!
