Flying By.....

Hello everyone: Autumn has always been my most favorite time of the year, love the amazing display of colors and beautiful temperatures, not to hot, not to cold, just right. Also, the Holidays are near and homes around here are starting to decorate for Halloween, which I enjoy doing a lot so, here's a card I made to add to my stash of "spooky" cards for family and friends, I will link this card to a few challenges at the end of this post.

I had this awesome stamp set from Kaztelkraft called Les Rats de Ville and, I think you'll agree, they are both adorable and kind should I put it?.....creepy?? I don't know but, what ever feeling they inspire, I just love them.
I stamped this one onto a panel of Strathmore water color paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with Prismacolor pencils, the moon is just punched out and so is the Witch (this is an old Martha Stewart punch), I embossed the background with an embossing folder, the pattern paper is from my stash. The spider on the sentiment and the little pumpkin are from a bag of confetti that is going to last me for a life time. 
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The spider web and spider are from a retired SU set called "Bite Me" and the sentiment from a retired Flourishes set called "Witching You a Happy Halloween".

I'm linking this card to the following challenges.

Sheepski Design Challenge #6 "Feature a Creature"
Pearly Sparkles Challenge #20 "Fur and Paws"
One Crazy Stamper Inc. September Challenge "Seasons of Celebration"
2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge #6 "Must have a Creature"

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.
