I am pretty sure that I won't be online Sunday due to the Hurricane here (and maybe not for some time after), so I am scheduling a post from one of my downline, Barbara Mock.  She had been doing so well with her business and I can see her creations blossoming as well!  This is a Halloween card that Barbara sent me to share with you.  Isn't it absolutely ADORABLE?  Too, too cute!

This is a Center Step Fold Card.  You can find my tutorial for it here:  Love Birds 60th Anniversary

Here is how Barbara made the card in her own words:

For the base I used Basic Gary. On the sides I used a piece of Basic Black card stock that was run through the Big Shot in the Spider Web EB after I had brayered the EB with Craft Whisper White ink. Then I cut it in strips to fit on the sides. I used a piece of Basic Black run through with the new Stripes EB on the middle section. I stamped the house from House of Haunts in Versa Mark and used black embossing powder. I colored the moon with Daffodil Delight Stampin Pastels and I used Basic Black Pastels on the background. The DSP on the bottom is Night and Day from Holiday Mini year before last. The spiders are from Spooky Bingo Bits stamped on Whisper White and cut with the small 3/4 x 15/16 oval punch. The "ghost" is of course the owl punch. The smaller pumpkin is the same 3/4 x 15/16 punch and the larger pumpkin is the retired small oval punch (which by the way, I can't really understand why they would retire that punch...I use it all the time!).
