Midnight Fright!

Midnight Madness Challenge 18 was a bit shall we say (ssshh!) of a bummer. No, we won't say that, we'll say, it was a bit a doozy. I only had odd buttons, nothing fancy to decorate, even though of course my craft room is full to breaking point with 'stuff'. No real special image, no nice charms but then in the dead of night I had an idea! (If I could bottle it I'd make millions!) Not a good take on the sketch but, well, I had a look at all the others and there were some really fabulous ones. Even if you're not taking part you should go on a blog hop and have a look! This is my take on the sketch. I guess it's 'nearly' there! Sorry about the picture, camera is still sick, and the little 'Cracker Camera' won't take close ups. I've covered black card with the downloaded backing paper. Fixed the Haunted house onto some more black card. Then I cut strips of acetate up and placed the four thin strips across the card and then fixed the Haunted house over it with 3D foam. I had a few ClipArt spookies left from my Board Game Card so attached them to the acetate so they 'wobbled'. The inside is another downloaded spider's web paper and some cartoonie characters. The large spider dangling from another strip of acetate is from ClipArt.
Now, the 'haunted house' backing papers, cartoons and wording are all from the ScrapbookingMad shop and while you're over there, don't forget to hunt out some of their freebies too.
Of course knowing me, I've probably done the wrong week, but never mind, I quite liked playing with the little spooks!
This Halloween card will be going off at the end of the month to a Halloween Swap over on the Craft Bubble forum. I hope my swap partner doesn't mind spiders!
Now, as I type this Challenge 19 has already started over on Midnight Madness and looks a lot easier! So, for once I've already got my thinking cap on...or maybe my night cap, as that seems to be where most of my ideas come from... The Land of Nod.
Time to say (((wave)) "Hi!" to new follower Mary from My Scrap Happy Life Thank you for joining Spyder's Corner!
P.S The spider in this picture, isn't real...(It's ok Charlotte, you can look) and no creepy crawlies were harmed in the making of this card...
