This way comes...

Hello!

Boy oh boy has it gotten cold here quickly! Just a few nights ago we were hovering in the low 40's then all of a sudden we were below freezing by 10 pm. Yesterday was cold all day long and I'm worried this might be a sign of an early winter... yikes! I'll keep my fingers crossed that the dreaded white stuff holds off on making an appearance for a few more weeks, LOL!

Ok, enough of my moaning and groaning... we have a new challenge over on the Tickled Pink challenge blog and this week is a photo inspiration. I loves me some photo inspiration so this one was right up my alley. :)
It's a perfectly spooky Halloween looking room full of great shades of orange and black with plenty of spiderwebs and skullies. As soon as I saw it I knew that I would be using Witch Lylah for my card, she's just too fabulous not to ink up now that I've got her in rubbah. And considering I've made quite a few Halloween cards lately, all I had to do was pull scraps from off my desk and throw them together to get this one rollin'. Then I finished it all off with some super cool spider web looking ribbon that my bloggin' buddy Rinne recently RAK'd me (thanks Rinne!) and like magic it was done! ;)

Alrighty, so go check out all the amazing inspiration from the design team girls and play along with us this week. There is a free digi of your choice up for grabs and the winner is now selected by random generator! 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. And don't forget that Tickled Pink has their digital stamps available during the entire month of October!

Good luck everybody!

Awww, another gorgeous card and image. Almost makes me wish I would be making Halloween cards myself, but the whole Halloween concept remains alien to me.
Your blog candy arrived today! My DH managed to salvage the package when the postman was trying to force it into the mailbox! Thanks again! Everything looks even better IRL, including your fab card. Marianne x

Fabulous card and I love the DP combo. OMG, I'd never be able to handle "below freezing" temps.

Ok, so I'm a little slow... I meant to comment on this gorgeous creation last week and with the weekend snow storm it seems I neglected to show my teamies some love on their blogs!

I adore this, of course! Fantastic papers and I love the netting & the itty bitty spiders! Plus, your coloring is stellar as always! :)
