Candy Winner & A Haunted Housewarming!

Happy Halloween!!  (Almost)

Before I get to my card this week I need to announce the winner of my followers candy.  I would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to all of you (new and old) for your continued support and kind comments, I love hearing from you and visiting you all in return.  As I still don't know how to use the random generator thingy I printed out all the comments, cut them up and put them in a pot.  The winner was picked by my beautiful assistant Emma (before she dashed off to work this morning).  So without further ado...

the winner is (drumroll please)...

Kanda (aka Andrea)

Congratulations Andrea, could you please email me at with your snailmail address as soon as possible.  I go on holiday on Friday 26th for a week, so if I don't hear from you by the time I return on Friday 2nd November I will draw another winner.

So, onto my card today.  I made this for a friend who moves into her new house next weekend and seeing as it's Halloween I combined the two and made this.  Luckily she loves Halloween, although I did have to make sure that there weren't any spiders, she's not so keen on those.  Hopefully she won't pop in and see it (she should be far too busy packing!)  Yes, the image is slightly on-the-tilt, but I decided I quite liked the "up hill" effect!  I coloured with copics and created the background with Distress Inks, an Ink Duster and a mask.  The backing paper was sitting in my stash, so not sure where it's from.  The ribbons are from my stash.  The backing papers and image are both mounted on plain black cardstock.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
