Have you ever been Ghosted?


I am getting ready to "Ghost" some of my neighbors; put a bag of treats together with a photocopy of a ghost and a note telling them to make a copy, put the ghost in their window, and "ghost" someone who hasn't been ghosted yet.  These clear acetate cards will go well, no one will know who they are from because I sneak up, ring the doorbell and run!   I made these with the Creepy Crow set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  I printed one of them onto a sheet of orange vellum the other onto a sheet of white card stock.  I cut around  everything, leaving the crow, moon and tree intact.  I added googly eyes, a little white opaque ink to one crow,  and some Tim Holtz Distress Ink scattered straw to the one with the white moon.  I glued the cut outs to the acetate cards which are 5 x 7.  
Be sure to stop by Lindsay's blog today, she always has a special Thursday freebie for you.  Stop by the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff store to take advantage of the 30% off sale too.  I hope you stop by my DT sisters blogs to see what awesome inspiration they have to share with you also.  Thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  8. What fab and bright with just a little spookiness throwns in, though have to say I've never heard of ghosting either, is it a local passtime or national, sounds fun though as many of my neighbours are quite elderly I might give them heart failure ringing or knocking and running away , as they aren't that tolerent of the neighbourhood children and I'd hate to get anyone in bother or hospital! Thanks for joining us at creative craft challenges.

  14. Hi, Diane! Ghosting is sooo fun! We've been doing it for years the best was when my then 3 year old just stood on the sidewalk crying instead of running away. heehee The neighbors were good about acting surprised.

  18. Great cards Diane, you have put so much effort into these, all that cutting out. I've never heard of 'ghosting' before. My mum used to tell me a story of how they tied a string to the door handle of a house and the metal lid of the bin then knock on the door and run. Ghosting sounds much friendlier. :-) xx
