Inspired By #192 and Two Old Bats Halloween - October

Inspired By has such a softly colored Halloween image this week but I'm afraid mine isn't.  I have all my cards made and didn't need any more so I'll post one I've sent.

It all started with an inky background and a die cut of birch trees from TH. I used ghosts from EH and MFT, drawing on my own faces so I didn't have a black outline.  I interspersed them through the trees and added a heat embossed sentiment from MFT.  If 'boo' is a requirement for the card, it's on the inside. ;)  

I'm also sending this to the Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge. It's anything goes as long as it's Halloween.

I went with my daughter and her friend to a Witch's Night Out at a little shopping center last night.  If you wore a witch's hat you got a free glass of wine, which we did, and then had treats at some of the other stores including bourban balls, a blood drink and s'more snacks.  What a good way to get people into the darling little stores and have fun in the process. 

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a great day!
