Trick or Treat?

Trick or Treat!  It's Day 20 of the 31 Days of Halloween and my card today features Haunted Hill Rubber Stamp from Stampendous.  Given the opportunity, I would so love to live in this house!  The spooky vibe just thrills my heart to the core.  Years ago when I was just a kid, this is the kind of house I would be scared to Trick or Treat at but I would do it anyway just to prove I'm not a chicken!  LOL!  I love Halloween and all of the fun and scariness that comes with it! And, yes, in case you think you're seeing double, my card was used for part of the banner design, which is always an honor.  

Here's what I used to create this card:

Now, I'm off to scare up some more Halloween fun and I'll see you again in a few days!  In the meantime, let's get spooky!



  1. I love this card. I'd frame it and leave it up all year long. Beautiful job!

  2. Love the Haunted Hill stamp you used to create this spooky scene! The house reminds me of the Victorian my grandparents used to own in Santa Barbara many years ago.... my cousin and sister and I would go up to the highest level and tell ghost stories. We would all get so scared, we would tear down the stairs to get back to the bottom level where it was safe... I was the youngest, so would usually be bringing up the rear in our panicked dash!

    1. Oh my gosh! That sounds like so much fun! I really love the old Victorian homes. We have a lot of them here where I live. Our home is a cottage style, which I also love, but I dream of someday owning a Victorian.

  3. This is fabulous! I would have to frame it!

  4. Fangtastic scene.
    Love the kids on their
    way to the "haunted"
    thanks for sharing.

  5. Love love this, Lea! Nan, LeighSBDesigner

    spooky scene!
