Home Sweet Haunted House!??!

Yes, I am completely aware that it is March, and not October. LOL! I just got this idea and had to go with it... at least I am getting a jump on fall holidays. Sometimes it is fun to pull out holiday stamps when there is not a holiday in sight... makes this less stressful. LOL! I used a bunch of stamps from different companies for this card. The main image is the house from the new Market Street Stamps Home Sweet Home set (still smitten with this one!). The clouds are from PTI's Up Up and Away set and the tiny pumpkins are from the treat bag in PTI's Tiny Treats: Halloween. Finally, the bats are from Paper Smooches Halloweenies set. I started out with a white card base and used Distress inks to create the night sky. So fun! :)

Off to start the laundry, do the dishes and hopefully squeeze in some crafty time before it's time to get the kiddos from school! :)

You are so right, we should all take a leaf out of your book and start creating holiday cards now to make it less pressure when they are really needed, I love the depth of colour that you achieved on this card and that house is super sweet..hugs
