One More For My Halloween Stash!!!!!

Hi there everyone: Well, I don't know about you but, I like to have a good stash of Holiday cards ready for when the Season arrives, I've been making a good amount of Christmas cards but I don't have many for Halloween and Thanksgiving so, here is my first Halloween card of the year.  I'm linking it to a few challenges at the end of this post.

This is a really beautiful image from a Power Poppy set called Feeling Fall and, even though I think the intention of this image is for a Fall card, I made it Halloween by adding the scary spider from the retired Stampin' Up! set called "Dark and Dreary".  I often combine stamp sets, old and new, to create the scene I want, in this case, that spider did the trick.
The images are stamped onto a die cut panel of water color paper with Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed, then colored with some of my Sakura Koi water colors.  The sentiment is from the set and the pattern paper from my stash.
Here is a picture of the finish inside of my card.

This images are from a retired Stampin' Up! set called "Bite Me!", love it!!!

I'm linking this card onto the following challenges.

heARTful Stamping Challenge "Anything Goes+a Stamp"
2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge #3 "Anything Goes with a Critter"

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Love this image. Oh, to be far enough ahead in my stamping to be working on Halloween and Thanksgiving! I still have July birthdays to stamp for. Love how you added the spider to this. Not that I love spiders... but they're perfect for Halloween cards. The inside is fabulously cute! I should mention that I have all of this year's Halloween cards done already as I never got around to sending out last year's. I know, shame on me! That rarely happens as I do send out LOTS of cards, but there was a reason. Fun visit today, Maria!
