An award and a challenge

First things first, Victoria passed this blog award on to me and now I've got to share five things before passing it onto five more fellow bloggers. Thanks Victoria! :)
Ok, five things...
1. I watched the new Tinkerbell animated movie last night... and loved it.
2. I'm wearing my favorite red sweater to work today.
3. I don't like watermelon.
4. I just got a new order of Copics in the mail yesterday and I'm a happy girl.
5. I just finished up the design for a future Fairy Sweet stamp.

Now I will pass this to: Donna, Claire, Amy, Gabby, and Lisa. :)
So I know I said I was done with Halloween cards for the year but I just can't help myself... especially when there are fun Halloween challenges out there like the one over at the ATS challenge blog this week. I did a bit of altering on Bathing Beauty Emma from C.C. Designs, transforming her into a little witch just for the occasion. :)

Amy this is so cute.. love the altering. I wish I had more copics in the mail. I receive some last week in the mail, but I always need more. And maybe a few more reinkers. Your altering is so great that you can't even tell it's the same stamp..
