Spooktacular Fun for Fab Friday.....

Hello again: I finished this card a short while ago and I'm posting it, just in the nick of time to the FAB FRIDAY sketch challenge. Here is my card.
As soon as I saw the Spider Web Doilies from Stampin Up! I just couldn't wait to get my hands on them so, when the Holiday Catalog went live, I immediately placed this beauties in my order.
The Fab Friday sketch is just perfect for this doilies but I needed an image to kind of match the spider web theme I had going on. So I went to my Halloween stamp stash and found this cute little ghost named Hattie from Kraftin Kimmie, with her little spider friend flowing from  her hair and I knew I had found a match.
It took me a while to paper snip this ghostly gal after I colored her but it was worth it. I embossed the orange panel with an retired SU Spider Web embossing folder, the sentiment is from an old Flourishes Halloween stamp set and, to follow the sketch, I placed a confetti spider right by the doily that looks like it's getting ready to crawl down, (I bought a bag at the pharmacy with like a gazillion little spiders that probably will last me a life time).
So I hope you like this card, it was fun and entertaining to make and I think I'm getting better at paper sniping.  I colored this image with my SU markers in Elegant Egg Plant, a little Basic Black and Basic Gray, More Mustard and some neon green paint from my ceramic days. The ribbon is also from my bottomless drawer of this stuff.
Here is the sketch that inspired this card. I want to thank you for stopping by and for your comments. I hope you go take a looksee at the Fab Friday challenge blog to see the fabulous creations of the DT and join in the fun.
Till next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

  5. Thank you Marika, this celebration is on October 30th. and it's a day that children of all ages, including 64 year old grandmas, dress up in fun costumes and go door to door saying "Trick or Treat" and get candy. I love seeing the little ones all dressed up as Faeries or ghosts, Superman or doggies, etc. I dress up every year, this year I might dress up as a good witch, LOL!! so the little kids wont get scared.
    Thanks again for visiting.
