Halloween Blog Hop - October 21

Welcome to my pal Ashley ("Nikki")'s spooktacular Halloween Blog Hop!  If you've come from Lisa's adorable HoneyBearz Designs blog, you're on the right track. Don't miss any one of the stops, so be sure to start at Ashley's home blog by clicking the spider:

This is such a fun time of year, crisp air and pumpkins, goblins and ghouls...  Along with it comes cards and crafts that allow us to share the "SPIRIT" (boo!!!).  Here is the SUPER QUICK and EASY card I created for this Hop:


This card looks like an ensemble, but it's just a snippet of 12x12" paper, Stickled on the swoosh.

Inside, I computer-set the sentiment, hand-drew the spider and added googly eyes, and tied on a bit of ribbon.

Your next stop on this blog hop is DENA at http://missdjones.blogspot.com.  

Now, before you go, don't forget to check out the PRIZES available on this Halloween Hop!  Ashley's lined up some super sponsors for this hop, who are offering a line-up of prizes:

Why do I think cards are hard to make? If you took that snippet of paper and added the Stickles ..it is perfect and so easy but yet looks so much more than easy!

I love it when I can make something look complicated when it really wasn't! LOL! Love that the paper was ready-to-use and didn't need much. The stickles were the perfect touch. I like how you finished the inside. I have to admit I only do that on some of my cards. I'm too lazy! LOL!
