Flying Witch & Midnight Ride

Flying Witch

Midnight Ride

Oh you know I really like the Memory Box Dancing Lady die (retired) there are just so many fun ways to create cards using her.  I used a Spellbinders Large Classic Circle for the moons and I found I had an old Martha Stewart bat wings, Jack O Lantern and bat punch.

We recently discovered some rodent had taken up resident in our attic, after putting rat/mouse traps and getting nothing I asked my better half to get up in the attic and take a look.  Well, over in the corner where the house eves are located was a nest with five baby Douglas Squirrels (picture below).  Now they are actually a native squirrel in Washington so I had him place the babies in a box and took them outside and placed them under a tree.  Sure enough almost immediately here comes the mom and she moved them all to a better location.  We found where the squirrel had gotten up on the roof and into the attic so now that is all sealed off.

Materials For Midnight Ride
Memory Box Dancing Lady (retired) but you can still find them at on-line stores
Martha Stewart Jack O Lantern, Large Bat Wings and small bat punches (no longer make these punches)


  1. Hi Diane I can see why you like the Dancing Lady die she is rather lovely even though in this case she is a Witch, both cards look smashing with the other Halloween embellishments, love them both.

  5. Fun - cute - and everything in between! Both of these are precious. I love the happy witch and of course those great colors for Halloween!

    Glad those little darlings have a happy tree now instead of your attic!!


  6. These cards are cool! I love how graphic they are and how you mixed the die-cuts. It's funny that she's a dancing lady--she's perfect in her Halloween outfits.

    I'm glad you were able to get the squirrels out of your attic and their mom took them. Yeah!
