This is my card for today's Teapot Tuesday Challenge: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...t-t508721.html
This week we are heading to Wisconsin to help Mitsey Bitsey spider and her buddy, Dunkin the Pumpkin, try to rescue Casper, the white and very freindly ghost from a sticky spider web so he can join in on their Halloween party. Do you see itsey Mitsey Bitsey hanging on for dear life in the door frame of the haunted house? She is trying to make her way up the the rafters where Casper is stuck, but she is just too darn little! And those bats are really scaring her, too! Dunkin has all but given up by now. Never fear, the teapotters are here to help!
This card is really for 5-year-old Jacob, the grandson of Renee (handmadebyme). Jacob has cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy. He won't be able to go trick-or-treating this year, so we are bringing the Halloween party to him! You can read all about his story here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...6-post141.html
I have only one stamp set related to Halloween so out it comes every year! The haunted house was stamped with Memento Tuxedo black and colored with Copics. I added shimmer to all the webs and the bats with Spica pens. I added a rickety fence and a cute sentiment banner from Lil' Inker Designs: http://www.shoplilinker.blogspot.com/
See you the Halloween tea party!

I can't wait to see his face when he opens this beauty up. He just adores halloween and all things scary. This haunted house is sure to be one of his favorites. Thank you so much. I will be posting pictures of Jacob with all his wonderful Halloween treats (cards).
