Witching hour...

Olo!

Well it may not be Friday yet but I'm doing a little happy dance because I've got a couple days off... woot, woot! So much to do... I wonder what I should tackle first?

Before I go do anything though I have a card for the new challenge now up over on the Tickled Pink challenge blog and it is ANYTHING GOES! Easy peasy right? Just pull out a Tickled Pink image and go to town! :)
With this latest release I have been starting to get the itch to make some super fun Halloween cards so I actually went back to last year's digi Lil Haunts and printed Witch Lylah out "big head" size. Then I thought it would be cool to create a circle card with lots of circular elements for her to live in. I gotta say that I love how this one came out... it was one of those rare times when everything came together exactly how I envisioned it.
And even though we are still enjoying the end of our summer days I'm kinda getting anxious for fall to hurry up and get here now. That way if I can't control myself and start dressing up like a spooky witch or something it won't look quite as odd. Ok, ok... that would still be weird but if I could look as good as Lylah here in a pointy hat and black lipstick, I'd be sportin' that look all over town, LOL! ;)

But I digress... back to the challenge! If you would like a chance at winning this week's prize then why not play along? Don't forget that your card must feature a Tickled Pink stamp in order to qualify for the prize... these include: Lil Lolitas and Lads, Pinkettes, Pink Pets and Cherries. All of which can be found in the Tickled Pink store.

Amy this totally ROCKS! I had enlarged it and all of a sudden Madison is behind me and shes like "Mom, That is absolutely Gorgeous!" lol.. So now you have Madison's seal of approval... Anyway I am so with you on looking like you Lylah. I would dress like that all the time as well because she is just beautiful! I love the paper you have used. I just purchased the Authentique from Susana and I can't wait to use it. Have a great couple of days off. I just have one more day then I am off for the weekend. Hugs, Lisa
