Creepy Crawly - Halloween

Our theme for the month of October for my monthly card swap with other Red Hatters in the US was either Autumn Harvest or Halloween.  I've made harvest cards for the last couple of years so I decided to have a crack at producing the 19 cards as simply as possible.  The postage is horrendous so they have to be as light as possible. I used a Halloween paper from Pink Petticoat and cut the extra spiders out with a new Nestie set called Lacey Squares.  The best bit about this card run was getting inky fingers using the Tim Holtz Distress Inks, I really love these little ink pads.

The various ribbons are from my overstuffed ribbon stash box.  Its never fails to amuse me how I start out with an idea and change it when I get bored with the same thing.
