Welcome to the Don't Be Afraid of the Dark Blog Hop on October 13 from 9 am to 11 pm CST.  Thank you for joining us to help us celebrate Halloween. I love all things about Halloween.  So I decided to host this fun celebration with some of the most talented crafters that I know.
I do have a few rules for this hop, in support of each crafter and the time they have put into their work, to be eligible for the "Grand Prize" you MUST visit each blog and leave a comment for each day of the blog hop and also become a follower of my blog,and my dt blog at http://  The blog candy is $25 in free files over at
 I also am giving out a file of $3 value to each person that hops. To get this file, please choose what you would like and then send me an email to and I will send your file right out to you.

If you have come from Anita's Blog you’re on the right track. This hop runs on Oct. 13, so you have plenty of time to make it all the way through the hop. Check out each blog and see what each blog has to offer for BLOG CANDY!  After all it's Halloween and who doesn't like Halloween.

Now for my project, I made a Halloween Card for my Niece

I used a digi stamp, and K&Co paper.

 I had an ops with my embossing so I decided to cover it up.

I embossed my tick or treat stamp again on black paper and then covered the rest of my ops.

I embossed with white embossing powder my sentiment on the inside and then wrote my message to my niece in white Gel pen just for a fun difference.

Thanks for hopping by make sure you hope on over to Mickie's Blog ~ Carla
