Altered Altoid Tins-Halloween

I just Love fall. There is a crispness in the air,
 the leaves are beginning to turn and Halloween treats are arriving in my mailbox.
Like this darling tin from Wendy at Bliss Angels
Isn't she just the sweetest thing
 perched up on her pedestal in her nest of Halloween foliage.
Thank you Wendy I adore her!!!

Here's the tin I sent Wendy.
 Not nearly as sweet, almost sinister! cackle cackle
But she likes it!

I say it again and again but I take my hat off to American crafters because you are the very best when it comes to Hallowe'en (with the exception of the amazing Martina!)
I love that one is Too Cute To Spook and your tin is slightly more menacing.
Fabulous as always Lynn.
Wishes
Lynne
