House of Haunts

I don't know why, but I am REALLY drawn to Halloween stamp sets. I just find them hard to resist. . . and I don't really send out "Halloween cards" either! When I saw this House of Haunts in the Fall/Winter Catalog, I HAD to get it along with the Haunting jumbo wheel. I just think they're adorably spooky! I used the Dirty Dozen Sketch for this month for the layout.

On a side note, we came home last night to no power. It was very weird. You don't realize how much you rely on electricity until it's gone. No tv, no lights, NO COMPUTER! It is on again this morning, but the schools are delayed because of it. In any case, we had an enjoyable evening in the candlelight. The kids were a little scared and ended up sleeping in our bed. . .let's just say it was cozy! :) Thanks for stopping by today! Hope your week is off to a great start! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- House of Haunts (SU); Paper- Basic Black (SU), Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink), patterned paper (DCWV); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine); Accessories- white gel pen, Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug folder (Provocraft), circle Coluzzle, wide grosgrain (Darice)

FUN card!!! I've been enjoying everyone's halloween cards!! I'm glad your power was back on this morning...it isn't fun when you lose it and you are right, you never know how much you appreciate it until you don't have it.

We were lucky enough to not lose power, but all of the traffic lights were out this morning. Great layout for a fun card.

I LOVE this card. No computer??? That is a nightmare in my book! LOL A night in candlelight sounds so nice though and I totally feel ya about the "cozy" bed. LOL I only have two kiddos but the LOVE to stretch out. LOL :) Glad the power is back on!
