Friends With Flair Blog Hop!!!

Sometimes it takes a friend to gently nudge...errrr PUSH you out of your comfort zone and today is one of those days. I vasilated between justatinybitof fear and SQUEEEEing to have agreed to participate in today's Friends With Flair Blog Hop sponsored by Unity Stamp Company ...my FIRST blog hop!!! SQUEEEEE!!!!

I have a plethora of Unity Stamps--which my stamp/foodie/SQUEEE buddy Lydia knows well when she tweeted me about today's blog hop and encouraged me to JUST DO IT.  I've been dying to get into my studio and create and I'd already decided I needed an excuse to do so because my children's extra-curricular activities are majorly messing with my ability to stamp!! Pfffth!

(Holy crap this was a long intro to just show my card! BWAHAHAHAHA!!!)


I used Unity Stamp's Hauntingly Sweet set and embossed with black embossing powder before coloring those lil' punkins and candy corn. The background is white cardstock dry embossed with the spiderweb embossing folder from Stampin' Up!, I then spritzed it with Tattered Angels sparkly spray then sponged some black ink to highlight the web a little better. The picture doesn't show them very well but there are 3 black rhinestones in the top left corner...had to add a little bling! Sooooo fun!!!! I might have used just a tad too much of that fun spritz. I freakin' love purple, can you tell?

There are over 50 of us participating in today's hop...so be sure to go to the Unity Stamp Blog to see all the entries for today!
