'Tis Near Halloween

Hello everyone and Happy Friday! I had some time to play in my craft room this afternoon and when I saw the new challenge at Peachy Keen, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
The challenge this week is "Just Cards:: Word Up. Make a card with the main focus on the wording. 
I just LOVE this sentiment stamp from My Craft Spot's Spooky Treats stamp set! It's so fun and spooky at the same time! LOL! So of course I had to use it!
I punched a circle for the moon and stamped the witch onto it. I also did some inking and distressed the edges. I cut a white mat and stamped the haunted house and sentiment. I distressed the edges and used my sewing machine to sew around the mat. When it was finished, I took some distress ink and inked over the white to give it a dirty look. I distressed the outside edges of the mat as well and mounted the moon onto a pop dot. BTW, I don't own a fancy distress tool. I used a pair of scissors and ran it across the edges. I think it turned out pretty cool! 
Before I say good bye, I wanted to let you all know about the new stamp release party coming up at My Craft Spot! If you go to THIS post at My Craft Spot and post the stamp release button on your blog, you could win a stamp set!

I hope you will join us for all the fun during the release week!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
