Halloween is Hoppin' at Tiddly Inks!


The day is finally here! Beginning at 6:00 pm Central Time the Halloween Blog Hop is happening at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog. The Design Team will have their gorgeous inspirations up at noon today, and if you wish to participate, you can link your own Tiddly Inks Halloween card on the linky thing anytime after noon to be on the hop list. How fun that customers can participate in this way! Christy has fun new Halloween images at Tiddly Inks in honor of the hop and you can bet I was right there! (And P.S., they're on sale!) This is Betty Belfry. Isn't she lovely? I colored her with Copics and followed the weekly challenge sketch for this card to do double duty. I'm leaving for CHA on Monday and have loads of things to do before I go. The DP is a combo of Stampin'Up and Basic Grey. The glitter transparency is Fancy Pants. I used MS Bat and Drippy Goo border punches, some gems and Cloud9 bats and stars. The sentiment is also Stampin'Up.
The hop will run until 6:00pm Central time on Sat. and there are prizes to be won. Click HERE for details. Following the hop on Sat, July 24th there will be a party on the Tiddly Inks PCP group with more fun and festivities. This is a great group to join, because besides being just an all around fun group of people, there are FREEBIES on Tuesdays! WooHoo! See why I'm hooked?
