Happy Halloween!

Hi Everyone!
Whew...what a week! Work, Work, Work... I guess it's a good thing right? My last day is Tuesday and then I have two days off. ohhh I so need it :) Today I had a couple hours to play catch up before our family dinner and I decided to sneak off to my craft room and get my hands dirty. You'll understand once you see my card. 
I hope you have a fantastic week and I will be by to visit very soon to see what all my VERY creative friends have been up to :)

I started with a blue background and distressed the paper. I chalked it and inked it until my fingers were black & blue :) I just hand cut the stone hill and embossed it with a Tim Holtz Brick Embossing Folder and added more ink & Chalk

Cricut Cartridges - Happy Hauntings & George
Cuttlebug Dies - Bats
Paper - GCD Studios & Bazzill
Embossing - Tim Holtz Brick Embossing Folder, Heat Embossed Sentiment
