The Grim Creeper Blog Hop and Silly Halloween Trickortreatabella Card

Most of you know that I love mystery, crime, and murder.  I watch all the shows...read all the books...and I have a twisted sense of humor at times.  Some of my friends and I thought it would be funny to make up some creepy and stalker-ish sentiments, so we decided to do a fun little blog hop.


Years ago...this comment popped up on my friend Sarah's blog.  I thought it was hilarious...and ever since then, I've made it my Halloween tradition to make a card with this image.  After four years...I still think it's just as funny. :)


I went sweet and simple with my card, but I think it still came out pretty cute.  I used tan and grey inks to sponge the background around her.  At first I thought I might not of kept her, since I sold a ton of my Bella stamps this year.  But of course I found her while I was rummaging through my stuff!


Thanks for letting me share my {creepy} and {silly} sides of me today!  Next on the hop is {Spike}.  I hope you all have a great and safe Halloween!  After work I'll just be home passing out candy to kiddos in my neighborhood!

SCRS Challenge #91 - Inspiration Challenge and Broomstick Lucy Card

Welcome to Week 2 of Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #91! We appreciate you taking the time to join our challenge and look forward to seeing your creations each week. You have until Sunday, 11/4/12 @ 9 PM PST to play along with the current challenge which is an inspiration challenge ...


Our challenge is open to all players. Each challenge a random winner will be chosen, and the winner of each challenge will receive a fantastic SCRS rubber stamp! In order to qualify for a prize, you must use a Sparkle Creations image on your creation. Most importantly, have fun! We can't wait to see your creations!


Instead of a fall card, I decided to sneak in a last minute Halloween card.  I have so much Halloween paper, though I don't make a ton of cards for it.  I think I tend to like orange and black, since they're the Beavers colors too.  Here's the inside of my card.


To play along in our challenge, upload a photo of your project and provide a direct link in the linky widget at the bottom of the SCRS post. If you use an online gallery (e.g. Splitcoast), please also use the keywords SCRSC91 and SparkleCreations (no spaces). If you have a Facebook account and are a fan of Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, you can also upload there. Deadline for challenge #91 is Sunday, November 4th @ 9 PM PST.

I hope you all have a great Tuesday!
