31 Days of Halloween: Day 22 (My Favorite Things & Authentique)

Hi again - can you believe it's Day 22 of the 31 Days of Halloween?!? You should have arrived here from Shoni's blog - if you need to go back and start at the beginning, the blog roll is posted over here on my sidebar-------------------------------->

Today's card is for the following challenges (thankfully there are lots of Halloween-themed challenges this month! LOL):

Artistic Inspirations: Anything Goes
Cards for Men: Halloween (manly)

Creative Creations: Halloween
Lexi's Creations: Halloween
Tammy's Scrappin' Corner: Spooky

So there was no stamping involved with this creation - which is weird, because I almost always use digi or rubber stamps.  But here's how I made this - I cut the Authentique DP to 5.5 square inches, and inked the edges with black ink.  I used my Spider Web die from My Favorite Things Die-namics and attached it to the DP, then filled it with Crackle Accents.  I added the little spider with foam pop-up dots and a diamond sticker for the center of the web.  The sentiment is a coordinating cardstock sticker from Authentique.

Your next stop on the hop is DominoART.  Have fun hopping!
So I wanted to update my friends that we found a house to rent in Massachusetts!  Jeremy will be driving Cass and I back around the end of November (or possibly I'll fly and meet them there) - then he plans to drive back to California with his dad, who is buying an RV and wants to travel around the country for a while.  So that would be really nice, if his dad stayed here and spent Christmas and New Year's with Jeremy & Trev.  So things are moving along and we're all optimistic about the future.  Trev is working with the Navy recruiter and has to touch base with him today, as a matter of fact.  That will be the icing on the cake - I can't even tell you how happy it will make me to see Trev moving on and becoming an adult.  Keep your fingers crossed for him.  :)  Peace.
