13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop - Day 12

*Please scroll down for Days 1 - 11 of the hop*

13 Days of Halloween
Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop.  This is DAY 12 of the 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 my blog, you will want to start with Lisa Peters @  She is the awesome lady who pulled this hop together (thank you Lisa!) and is your first stop.  If you came here from the awesome Tami, then you are in the right spot!

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.  

Here is the complete lineup:

First off, I'm so sorry for being late this morning.  Still on a funky sleeping schedule over here and it's truly impossible for me to get anything done in advance!  Aaaah!  Thanks for your patience!  I actually just made this card this morning and it surprised me that it didn't take as long as usual.  For a long time, I didn't enjoy using my Cricut because I thought it took to long to get all the layers cut, etc.  Well, I've completely changed my mind!  If you use some of the cuts they have all prepared with just a few layers, it's surprisingly quick!  I'm really happy with this little card today and it was one of the simpler ones that I've made.  I think I really need to reassess all of my cartridges and use them a lot more than I already do.  I can't believe how many options there are in each cartridge!  The Mini Monsters cart is the one I used today and so far, it's been my favorite to use this holiday season.  Last year my fave was Happy Hauntings.  Maybe I'll use that one for tomorrow's post.  I apologize for only doing cards this whole time, but I'm kinda killing two birds with one stone.  I have a friend who orders 8 cards each holiday (and even though these are late) she will use them for next year, I'm sure.  So, that's why all the cards! ;)  Alright, enough babbling from me.  Onto the card!

Front of Card -  Suggestions for the inside???

 Isn't this the cutest brad?  It's Studio G and I won it as blog candy from Heather at Heather's Crafty Space!

For the paper and cardstock I grabbed some from my stash and inked the pattern background edges with Colorbox Cat's Eye ink in Blackbird.  I used a white Marvy gel pen for the little details.  The die cuts are from Mini Monsters, with the purple and black cardstock from my stash and the green patterned paper from the Recollections - Ravenhead Manor 12x12 stack from last year's stock.  I added red and orange Stickles for a little pizazz.  There ya have it!  Easy peasy!

I hope you enjoyed my post today.  Please come back tomorrow to be eligible for the grand prize (see below) and to see my next project.  Only 1 more day of awesome Halloween projects to go!  I'm going to be sad to end this hop. :(  It's been so much fun!

To be eligible for the grand prize, you must visit each blog and leave a comment. You also MUST visit Lisa's blog and leave a comment on her blog for the day and also become a follower at "Scrapping With Lisa" and her facebook page: Please let her know if you don't do facebook and she won't count that against you for the blog candy.  Now for the blog candy, I bet you are wondering what it could be.   It will be a big treat bag full of goodies.  She will also be posting an individual prize for each day of the hop also that everyone who hops that day will have a chance to win.

As far as blog candy from me.  Well, I'm gonna scrounge something up. LOL  I'll get a picture posted as soon as I can.  It will be some fun goodies for sure.  Please leave a comment and become a follower or note that if you already are one, if you would like to be entered to win.  Please include a way to contact you.   I only give treats to my followers. ;)

Your next stop is the lovely Brynn.  She's a great friend, fellow fibrouber talented gal!  

Don't forget to enter my 500 followers give-away!   Btw, Cricut owners - one of the prizes in the box (500 follower giveaway) will be some Cricut markers.  If a non- Cricut owner wins, I will add something else equally as fun.  (This is only a little of what's gonna be in the box)... There will also be some stickers and hmmm... Maybe I'll reveal a little more in tomorrow's post, so I guess you'll just have to come back!  Trick or Treat!!! Ha ha ha! 

XO ~ Amy Jo
