Joyful Stars October Blog Hop

  Welcome to our October Blog Hop.  I'm so happy that you decided to join us today.  If you have come from Stephanie's Blog, you are on the right track.  It is a circular hop, so you can start out anywhere and you will know you are finished when you get back to the first blog.  You can find a list of participants on Joyce's Blog.  Sad to say I have really neglected my blog this past month.  My family went on a fabulous vacation to beautiful Alberta, Canada.  We visited Jasper and Banff National Parks.  I am still trying to get caught up on everything and get back on a schedule.  I am happy to be back to sharing my creations on my blog.  This month, I have been playing with X7211B Jeepers Creepers, the new Halloween Paper in Holiday Expressions.  This fun paper can be used for so much more than just Halloween!  It uses the bright new colors in the Adventure palate.  It is only available until December 31, so don't forget to order your pack.
The card is a faux swing card.  I used the new exclusive ink pads to stamp the creatures. I added wiggly eyes just for fun.  The new pads are wonderful.  They are held closed by magnets and are stored with the pad upside down so the ink is always on the surface.  This card could easily be used for a birthday card simply by changing the sentiment.
Here is a peek at the inside:
