Happy Booday

Hello.  Welcome.  A special BOO to Michelle A who has just joined our jolly little band.  I have been having great fun with this card.  Over at Stampotique Val challenged us to use handles, hinges, buckles etc.  From small acorns large oak trees grow.   

It's the little house in the witches garden.  I've used kraft card, embossed with Sizzix Woodgrain embossing folder and coloured with VersaMagic Gingerbread and Jumbo Jave and Distress Ink Walnut Stain.  The hinges are cut using PaperArtsy Hardware #1 die and the trim on the roof comes from Tando Work of Parts Sweet Tooth kit.  I love that I can emboss the Tando chipboard pieces.  Ooh, the bats are flying.  Maybe there's someone home........

Happy Booday it's Little Hoo Hoo, a stamp by Stampotique.  Little Hoo Hoo is really pleased the witch left her almanac behind because it gives him something to read.  Also the pages are soft and there's lots of them.......

How cute is Hoo?
