Simon Says Stamp and Show...an ATC

This is based on a line in a short story by Jim Butcher and when I read it, I laughed out loud on the sofa.  Every time I think of it I start to giggle.  Because, a)they expected the house to be haunted, and b)it was a little more haunted.  So does that means there were a few more ghosts?  Or unexplained noises?  At what point do you say, "Okay, this house is haunted just the right amount.  We'll take it."  I mean where do you draw the line? 
The base is one of the tags from the SU! Two tags Sizzix die.  I cut 6 of them and stuck them together with Xyron to add some stability to the base.  It is covered with random splotches of Craft ink and then several layers of UTEE are melted on, cooled,  then Perfect Pearls are dusted over and more UTEE melted on.  The house is a Wendy Vecchi Art Part covered with Distress Stains, a Tim hitch fastener serves as the doorknob (yeah, it's a little big, but I liked it), and K&Company ghost stickers serve as the happy haunts.  Hope it gave you a smile!

ps:  The actual line from the story is "...they've just moved into a new house and it's a little more haunted than the seller's disclosure indicated."  but all that wouldn't fit.  :)

Your wee little haunted house is so cute... and the ghosts don't appear terribly unfriendly so I guess it is ok to have a few more than expected... it did make me smile!!
