Lets Go 'Haunting'

Evening all - well this is a very late post from me - I have been lacking in MOJO for the past couple of days and I don't know why - I have managed to do 11/13 of the challenges over at Simply challenged Challenges and this one - well I just had no get up and go - But after being told off for thinking of giving up - something came to me - well three things if I'm honest!!! 

Simply Challenged Challenges

I think it could be that I don't want these to end! It has been so much fun - the different challenges and it has really made me think harder about my creations! So onto todays challenge

A 'Haunting' you will go 
Haunted places, include a Haunted House in your project

Well I searched google, pintrest, even tried switching off all together and… nothing… a big blank space…. then it came to me…..

Yep I have sure been a haunting! I found this wonderful template here - its so quick and easy to do (and I printed it onto the black card grate for speed - not so good for my eyes!) But all in all I have to say I quite like what I have come up with!  I have used three of the gorgeous images from Simply B Stamps. First up we have the stunning Witchy Wednesday and the gorgeous Betty Little Munster Lady - I just adore her!!!

The sitting pretty on the end I have used the cute Little Witch Ariel.  All of them were coloured with copics and cut out with a craft knife (I finally found a craft knife! LOL) You can't see in the pictures but I also used a scalloped punch to give the effect of troof tiles on the houses - that took some time!!! 

I used a few dies with this as well - as well as I die cut from a lovely friend.  Cause I don't have a spooky tree I used the memory Box die Arboscello Tree and cut some of the leaves out to make it look spooky!!! I also used my Memory Box fence die.  They are all stuck down with silicone - so far they are still standing! 

And here it is in all its glory - well I couldn't make spooky houses and not make them light up!

This will be taking pride of place in the centre of the table tomorrow for the girls party! I can't wait to see what they all look like tomorrow and also have some people knocking at the door!!! I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges;

Cards und More - Halloween 
Crazy Amigo Challenge - Halloween 

Thanks for stopping by - I would LOVE to know what you think if you have a moment, hope to see you again soon
