Spooky - The Last But Not Least

This card is for my youngest daughter. She loves our Dachshund sisters as much as I do. She accepts their quirky behavior. They are cute and funny and snuggly and happy. But they are also fierce hunters. This is a trait that has not been bred out of them. Their name, Dachshund, means badger hound in German. They would go down the burrows to find badgers (who are very ferocious) and alert the hunters. 

We adopted these girls when their mom had to go into an assisted living home and could only bring one dog. She knew it would be very difficult for the sisters to be separated so the woman bravely put them up for adoption.

We have a chainlink fence surrounding the dog yard.  Really secure, if they got out they would follow their nose looking for prey and I would never see them again. In the first 6 months three rabbits squeezed through the gates and lost their lives in rapid fashion! Wow! My cuddly critters are merciless killers!  

So this card relates to their hunting abilities!

Kinda funny? or not after that story?????

I used Distress ink for the background, Tim's Crazy Bird, The Rubber Cafe's stamp set "Too Cute To Spook",  Sentiment is a font with puppy prints and printed on vellum, and the tree and bats are from My Favorite Things "Spooky Scene".  The hemp is from my stash.

Thanks for looking!

Spooky!!!! # 6

This is a fun card using the My Favorite Things "Spooky Scene" Die!

This is such a great set that contains all the elements to make a  great Spooky Scene!  I added Distress Ink to make the background, a circle die cut for the moon with Distress Ink, Pretty Pink Posh Sequins, and Stickles for the eyes of the ghost and the bat!

This is a card that uses dies in a different way. 

The photo does not show the depth and texture of all the pieces.

The white card stock is popped up with foam tape.

This Spooky card is for my granddaughter.  I have added a couple of surprises for her! In the upper right-hand corner is a Peek-A-Boo die with a Jack O'Lantern and the word BOO!

Inside the card I cut a spider web out of acetate so when you open the card the red-eyed spider pops up and wiggles!
