Halloween revisited

I meant to add the card in this post to my final 31DOH post -
 but what with one thing and another
I couldn't get it sorted...

We have had awful trouble with the Internet for days now...

Fortunately I had scheduled my last couple of posts!

Thought I would just share our Halloween with you first...
my sister's 65th Birthday coincided with Halloween this year -
 so we have been down to Devon for a huge party!!

First we had to help...

with my sister's bat wing cloak!

with the decorations...

My husband and I have done a lot of AM-DRAM so we needed a swooping ghost -
 we have always used a lot of fishing wire!! 

We dressed up...

My husband and daughter were mad scientists... 

We helped with the food...

We danced...

A good time was had by all!!

But to get back to my card...
First I made a little ATC using the Halloween poem illustrated - it made me think of 
'Things that Go Bump in the Night'

I used scraps of paper from Best Creation Inc. and orange card.
I will link this to Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge

This then became a feature of my main card.

A white card base matted and layered with more orange card and Best Creation Inc. paper
and the image is Ike's freebie for the current challenge at Ike's World
I will link this card to that challenge!

I will also link this post to Open Minded Crafting Challenges - Halloween or Dressing Up!

Happy Crafting!
