13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop - Day 2

13 Days of Halloween
Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop.  This is DAY 2 of the hop.  Please scroll down one post for Day 1. 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 want to thank all of the wonderful friends that left me comments yesterday.  I so appreciate that! I feel very blessed to have you all as friends and followers.  You ladies make my day, seriously.

For today's project, I kept it super simple.  This is another one from last year that didn't get posted.  Sure am glad I have a bunch of those for this hop. ;) This is Bazzill orange card stock, the blue square with the cat is cut from one piece of patterned paper (with other cutouts on it).  Can't remember what you call that - I guess a cut-out sheet? LOL Anyways, I added Glossy Accents to the cat to make it stand out a bit more and then added the Trick or Treat sticker, spiderweb with spider rub-on and another little cutout border, again with Glossy Accents.  There you have it.  Sweet and simple and took all of five minutes to make!  Had I done this one this year, you would have seen more bling and inked edges for sure! ;)  It's fun to take a look back and see how your creativity has developed.  I think mine has grown immensely.  In fact, it's just about this time last year when I first started card making!

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 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 and an uber talented gal!   Have a great day and please stop back tomorrow for another great project.

XO ~ Amy Jo
