Spooktacular and Blog Candy Winner!

Hello Friends! I'm happy to be back to the blogging world. I had a few days off to play with my sisters and Mom, and it was TOO much fun! I had a wonderful time! My mom's birthday was simply perfection. She was so surprised to see my sisters and I...it was so fun!!

**Penny, you never responded about your address and such, so I'll have to pick another name for the blog candy...can't have that sittin' around!**AMY you said, "I love stopping by to see your color combinations and your cork creations! Those pencil toppers were so cute, too."
Please email me and let me know where I can send you your blog candy!**

But, being out of town and away from the daily stamping scene, makes it a tad daunting to see what comes from a few days off! I was excited today (yesterday I had too much make up to do to get time to stamp in!) to jump right back into the groove with a great sketch! I've used the LAD weekly Sketch, #96 for the inspiration and starting point for today.
I used the great tree and sentiment from the LAD Hallows Eve stamp set...I love how great they corrdinate! In real life, the bat and the "S" in spooktacular are all glitifed with Black stickles and are lovely! The patterened paper is from the DCWV Mod-Retro paper pack...deliciousness for sure! I used rhinestone brads on top of 3 1/2" black circle punches for the detail down the left side. I colored my moon and "S" with a pumpkin pie marker. I also used Black Palette ink for my sentiment and spooky tree! Oh, and it is all on a vanilla card base.

I'll just tell you the ingredients today, I've got a bit more catch up to do! The fridge is calling my name, it wants food in it!:) I've got more Hallows Eve for you tomorrow!! See you soon!

Very cool card Jen, I just love the houndstooth piece behind the image. I never would've picked that for Halloween but it fits so well!
