Trick or Treat with the ODD GIRLS!

VELCOME!  and a VELLY SKELLY Halloween week celebration to you!

i'm so happy you're joining me today to TRICK OR TREAT with the Odd GirlsSome Odd Girl is hopping, and by now you've ALMOST made it to the end of our little adventure...  you might have found some tasty little nuggets along the way, too!

if Alexis was your last stop, you're on the right track and WELL on your way!  however, if you've just visited me 'cuz you're my friend (yay!), you'll want to head on back to the start at the Some Odd Girl blog...

our hop this week is full of spooktacular Halloween Tricks and Treats. don’t worry, our tricks won’t be too scary! AND, just like trick or treating for candy, you don’t want to skip any houses…or blogs in this case!  in order to win TREATS, you must leave a comment on each of the Odd Girls' blogs, as well as the main post.

SO!  here's my project to inspire you for our festivities!



i stamped this Clever Kittys cutie and extended his fangs and bloodied 'em up a smidge, 'cuz, well, he's velly skelly!  :)  of course, with a critter this cute, i couldn't go TOO gruesome, so i had to add in some Doodlebug pretties!

and from here, you are off to visit the lovely Lenny!  OH, but before i send you away, i have a TRICK to share with you...  as a girl who's trying very hard to get comfy colouring with her markers, i find black to be a little intimidating.  but for the MOST part, i don't even colour with a black marker!  nosirreebob - just various shades of grey (cool or warm, depending on my project and the effect i'm after).  this one uses just the 4 IGs from Spectrum Noir.  no black!

so happy hopping!  we are celebrating right through to Halloween night, so you have until THURSDAY at midnight EDT to leave your comments and be eligible for treats!  i'll be announcing our winners on Saturday, November 2nd on the Some Odd Girl blog.  :)  happy halloween, and don't forget to have your parents check your candy before you eat it!
