Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop. This hop is scheduled from Oct. 19 at 8:00 am through Oct.31 at 11:00 pm (central time). It's that time of year when the nights are all spooky and creatures are known to wander the forests. So sit for a spell with a nice cup of hot apple cider and check out all the great projects.
If you just happened upon this hop, then welcome, but make sure to go back to the beginning and start at Lisa's blog.
We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and a great grand prize for this hop.
The hop is a 13 day hop with only 13 blogs to visit so you will have plenty of time to make it through the whole hop lineup 13 times. Check out each blog and see what blog candy you can win at the individual stops. Please come back all 13 days to see great projects.
The other day I called up my BFF and asked her if she wanted to go shopping. Well of course she did. LOL We had a plan to go to the Hobby lobby. I had not been to this store in quite a few years, since it is not close by. It's about 45 minutes to an hour away, but of course we were going on a a Friday, after work, and it was raining like crazy. I even printed out 40% off coupons for each of us and we left for our big craft store shopping trip. However, when we got to the store, it was closed. Not just closed due to hours, but not there anymore closed! Wow were we disappointed. Well I knew of another store in the same town, although on the opposite side of town, so we decided to not be defeated and drove to that store - Artco. We were in heaven! We shopped till we dropped. I think we were there for at least 3 hours! We had a great time finding all kinds of things to add to our stash. One thing that I found was this Mouse House October stamp of the month stamp that I used today for my card.
My project for today is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card. The card is made from orange textured card stock. A piece of K&Comapnay paper was cut and added to the front. I added a bat trim from the same package of K&Company Halloween paper. I stamped the House Mouse stamp in black and embossed it. I used Copics to color it. I used Stampin' Up pens to color the sentiment on the insde. I used white cardstock, rounded the corners, then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz lilac distressing ink for both the image and the sentiment. Then I put it on a piece of purple cardstock behind both. I specifically bought these two stamps, so that I could make this card for my other BFF, who has a collection of Mouse House stamps. I know she will love it and appreciate it.
