Blog hoppin' with Tickled Pink

Hiya!

October is Tickled Pink's birthday month and today, the Pink Ladies are celebrating with a fun blog hop where each of us has chosen one of our own personal fave Tickled Pink stamps from any of the past releases to showcase. So if you've started over at Kellie's blog then you are right on track... if not head on over there to join the party at the beginning. :)

There are so many fantastic images to choose from within the Tickled Pink range that I had a hard time narrowing it down. In the end I let the time of year and upcoming holiday help me to decide and went with the very cool and very gorgeous Lil Haunt Ghost Willow. For this card I saw her as more of a Goblin Queen than a ghost so I colored her up nice and spooky like with piercing blue eyes and a sweeping ebony gown. Then I felt uber crafty and made some haunting ribbon roses to go with her. Halloween cards are just way too much fun to make!

So if you would like to play along and have a chance at winning a $25 gift voucher to the Tickled Pink store then just hit each stop in the hop and then when you make it back to the Tickled Pink blog be sure to tell us which Tickled Pink stamp is your all time favorite. Alrighty, now I'll send ya along to the amazing miss Debbie's blog and thanks for celebrating two perfectly pink years with us! :)
