Halloween is Hoppin at Tiddly Ink


Hey there, thanks for stopping by on this glorious day! I hope you are enjoying your summer days. I don't know about you, but we have had some seriously crazy weather here in New England. TORNADO WARNINGS......what...we don't get tornadoes. Seriously, the news came on with breaking news about getting in your basement and everything. It was crazy. Thankfully where I live (Nashua, NH), we didn't see any of that, and actually it has been the opposite where I live. We haven't seen rain in days. There has been thunder storms in the local areas, but I haven't seen anything, including rain in SOO long. What's the weather been where you are? Maybe I should have gone to school to be a meteorologist, as I find it fascinating....

I have gone GOTH......ok, not really.....Today is Tiddly Inks Halloween Blog Hop, and with Halloween being one of my favorites, I just had to play along. For my card, I used Gothic Pinky from Tiddly inks, and I am also submitting this card into their weekly challenge, which is a sketch. I have to admit that I am just loving these images. I feel like they were made for me. They go from "so cutesy to goth", and I like to play with both.....so don't be surprised if you see lots more of these images on my blog :)

So, what do you think of Goth girl? I wasn't so sure on how to color her hair. Black hair is the hardest for me do to. I also had a hard time choosing embellishments. Do you give a GOTH girl flowers? Well, I did, but I used black and gray with some screw brads for a little metal feel. I'm not so sure it works, but it's going to have to.

Well, I am off to take my daughter to camp. I hope you are having a great day, and happy creating!
