Favourite Holiday Challenge, Blog Hop & Giveaway

Welcome to my DT post for Crafting by Designs! We have a fabulous treat, this is a challenge and Blog Hop in one event! We really hope you will join us - why not pop over to the Crafting by Designs blog for the rules and some DT inspiration and then pop back here to me for the hop!

Here is the blog roll and if you leave and comment with your email address on all the participating blogs, you could win a prize, even if you dont enter a project in the 'Favourite Holiday' challenge.

Here's the line up of the blogs to visit:
Sharon - Scrap Happy

The blog hop and challenge are sponsored this week by Fred She Said, Doodle Pantry and Di's Digi Stamps.

Now for my project! You might have realised from some of my previous Crafting by Designs creations, I love my darker crafting and Halloween as a holiday gives lots of scope for that! So this is the holiday I have chosen to blog today. 

I have used 'Emma the Cat' with sentiment from Fred She Said and used papers from Echo Park's Chillingsworth Manor pad. I used the 'perforation' setting on my paper trimmer to separate the sentiment from the image and layered everything with black pearlescent paper. The image is coloured with promarkers and the card edged with Mowed Lawn and Black Soot DI. The card is finished with my favourite - Card Candi!
Now, I had hoped to make another couple of Halloween projects to share but time has gotten away from me, so I thought I would share a few of my Halloween themed cards made for Crafting By Designs over the last year or so. I hope you like them! 

This is an image from Ike's Art - I love the black and red for Halloween too, gives it a scarier feel than the orange... of course the dripping blood helps too!

This was one of my first Halloweeny themed cards for Crafting by Designs and uses a Lacy Sunshine image.

Although this is a birthday card, I love the black and purple has a Halloween colour palette and the spiderwebs finish it off nicely!

 This card was for the Crafting by Designs Things With Wings Challenge and uses an image from Sami Stamps.

Well, thank you so much for visiting my blog today! I hope you love the Halloween vibe here and I hope you will leave a comment below for a chance to win at the end of the hop! Make sure you do the same for the other blogs on the list and enter a project for more chances to win!

I would also love to send one of you my Fred She Said card from today and a few Halloween themed crafty things! So if you'd like to win that, mention it in your comment!  

Next up is Lisa - Paper Bliss!

Happy Holiday Hop!!
