I chose her card because I thought it was so clever how she used all those die cuts and put them together!  I make loads of these cards for friends and colleagues so I am going to case her idea (if she doesn't mind of course!!).  Thanks Liz for sharing with us at Make It Monday!

Stamps: Spidey the Spider by Delicious Doodles

This is a really great card, I love the colours of Halloween but never been into it much myself, maybe because one of my bosses used to call me a witch,when I wouldn't sanction some of his purchases on the Company credit card.
