The 12 Days of Halloween--yay!!

Happy Sunday friends from sunny California!!  Hope you all had a fabulous weekend so far!  I am having a very enjoyable time in California--the weather is FANTASTIC, I love it!  No jackets needed unlike at home LOL.  Friday I picked up Patricia (The Paper Temptress) who I loveee and we hopped over to the store (ScrapGrlz) for a bit to get prepped and chat a bit.  Then I met up with Irina Blount (co-owner of La La Land Stamps) for dinner, who I've been friends with for awhile and it was so great to get to sit & just chat for awhile.  Usually we only get to chat via Facebook or at CHA which is always crazy. She's just the sweetest and I love her to bits!  Then yesterday was a day of classes--waving hi again to everyone that came, so nice to meet you all!  Today is another day of classes and then Monday is my trip to San Francisco which I'm so looking forward too---whooo hoooo LOL!  Then I leave on Tuesday morning for home!  So its been great and no weird incidents---sorry for the shortness of this post but I gotta get to bed at a decent time.  Jet lag is the WORST I swear, ugh!

And of course I have some travel stories already--duh but of course, but I'm too tired to type it all up LOL! I'll tell you alllll about it this coming week--no worries!

So today I get to be a guest for Simply Betty Stamps and their super fun 12 Days of Halloween Celebration and Contest!  You can find all the details above and at the Betty's Stamps Blog HERE!  I used this super cute 'Witchy Boo Betty" that they generously provided for me---I just love her to bits.  She reminded me a bit of Sabrina the Teenage Witch so that's why I gave her blondish hair LOL!  She was a fun one to color too.  Today's challenge is *7 pumpkins glowing* and I apologize for my non-pumpkin card but I made it before I left and didn't realize what my day's challenge was until I got to California LOL--a little late to change it. But you get the idea anywho right? ;)

I'm entering this into the following fun challenges as well:

-Delicious Doodles Challenge (Halloween/no orange)
-Inspire Me Fridays (anything goes)

My papers are a mix from Graphic 45 and PTI that I heavily distressed with my Zutter Distress machine.  And then I had lots of fun adding goodies to this card LOL--some black Magic Mesh and then a die from Spellbinders that I cut in half and added to each side of my image.  The sentiment is from an older set from MFT Stamps that I adore.

She got colored in Copics (but of course right lol) C9,C7,C5,C3,C1 / V99,V95,V91,V000 /E11,E00 / E35,YR23,YR20.  The swirls I stamped around the image are from PTI and then I added dots of stickler to the night sky for stars (and bling).  Her eyes (and kitty's eyes) got a coat of Diamond Glaze for shine too.

So hope you enjoyed this Totally Witchin Project and make sure to hop on over to Simply Betty's Store and Blog to join in on the fun challenges!  See you all back here tomorrow morning!!
