Hare Dracula!

October is speeding by and Halloween is fast approaching! I love decorating for Fall and Halloween and it's been especially fun this year in our new house!

The Stampendous Design team is participating in the 31 Days of Halloween! The Design Team members are excited to be bringing a daily dose of Halloween inspiration. We had such a great time for the Smeared Ink blog hop last year with Terra that we wanted to come back for another year and then we didn’t sign up in time. We’ll still provide their hop list every day so you won’t miss out on the fabulous projects from them. 

And of course, there are PRIZES!!! We have tons of prizes for this hop and as usual, comment on our blog and our design team blogs that get linked up here throughout our 31 Days post! See Official Contest Rules and then watch for details in our Monday post when we get the hop into full swing.

This week our team has been given two themes to work with in our creations. One, to use some of the fabulous Graphic45 papers they so generously supply for us, and two, a theme of "Wrapped Up in Costumes".  Our fun stamps and their great papers are wonderful together.

Here's another fun card using the same two Graphic45 papers I used on the Who Am I creation Monday, behind our Hare Dracula Stamp!
