31 Days of Halloween at Smeared Ink - Day Three

Morning Y'all!!  I'm fully admitting that I'm double dipping with my creation today!!!  I'm using a card that I made for the new Simply Betty Release that's going on today.  I have NEVER done this!  LOL!  I always create new for whatever I'm working on but I'm leaving my house in about an hour or so for the craft fair today so I'm just all over the place!!  But...I know that you will enjoy!!!  Have fun hopping today and thank you all for your fabulous comments thus far!  They mean so much to me and I will be hopping once my life resumes it's normal pace this week.  This hop has been FIERCE so far!!!
Welcome to the biggest, baddest, creepiest Halloween stamping event on the web!
(Or at least we'd like to think so!)

31 Days of Halloween started last year with two like-minded stampers who vowed to make and share one Halloween or Day of The Dead stamped project for each day in October. We had a huge response from others who enjoyed it just as much as we did. So this year, we are going even bigger!

We'd like to invite YOU to join in this year and participate in our 31 Days of Halloween month-long event. We're offering up some cool prizes at the end, and know that you'll have a blast! How can you do this, you ask? Well, there are a couple of ways to participate this year, and below you find all the details.

31 Days Of Halloween Wicked Blog Participant
What You Have To Do: Commit to making and displaying one stamped project on your blog for each day in October. To commit, add your name and blog address in a comment under this post.
The Rules: The project must handmade by you and be posted by 9:00 am Pacific Time every day. The project must be stamped, with either a rubber stamp or digi stamp used somewhere, and must be either Halloween or Day of the Dead themed. The project cannot be ALL digital, such as a digi scrapbook page, but can use digital elements in the overall project. To qualify for the prize drawing at the end of the month, you must post a project EVERY DAY in October. If you miss a day, you will still qualify to receive a survival button, but will not qualify for the prize drawing.
31 Days of Halloween Horrifying Hopper
What You Have To Do:Hop through each of the Wicked Blogs that are participating and leave a comment on each project.
The Rules:You must leave a comment on EACH participating blog every day to qualify for the prize drawing. Your comment should be about the project or something related (ie-no "Here's my comment for today" or "I'm here!"...these types of comments won't count!) If you miss a day or a blog, you will still qualify to receive a survival button, but will not qualify for the prize drawing.
31 Days of Halloween Sinister Lurker
What You Have To Do:If you can't comment every day on every blog , you will still have the chance to win some Lurker prizes! We will be hiding scavenger hunt pictures randomly throughout the month on various participating blogs...if you find one on any given day, you will be put in for that day's freebie drawing. It may be a coupon, a free digi, or a Halloween goodie, who knows!
The Rules: Scavenger Items will be hidden randomly, and are not guaranteed to be available every day. You will have to visit blogs to find them. If you find one, you will email and let us know exactly where it was and your name will go into that scavenger item's drawing. Each person who finds the "hidden" picture will get one entry. Bloggers are able to participate and find scavenger pictures as well, unless it is hidden on their own blog.

So, I know you are now asking yourself "What Prize Drawing is she talking about?" We are offering up a glorious concoction of 31 Days goodies as both participant prizes and to go into the drawing at the end of the month. First, I'll explain the participant prizes.
When you sign up to be a Wicked Blog Participant, you will receive a special blog button to display in your sidebar during the 31 Days. It will have a name list of all the other wicked participants, so you'll have a one-stop hub for all your visitors!
At the end of the month, you will also receive a participant "Survivor" blog button for you to proudly display all the time, showing everyone that you have what it takes to survive this grueling fest!

Horrifying Hoppers and Sinister Lurkers will also have the option of picking up a "Survivor" button at the end of the month, and will be able to grab a general 31 Days button from the S&S blog anytime during the month to let others know about it too.
Scavenger Prizes will be chosen randomly throughout the month and posted that day on the S&S blog.

Now, what you all have been waiting for, the prize drawing! Take a lookie...

Each person who successfully completes the 31 Days as either a Wicked Blog Participant or a Horrifying Hopper will receive one entry toward the prize drawing. If you successfully complete both, you will receive two entries. (Meaning if you are a Wicked Blog Participant and you comment on every blog every day, you have successfully completed both)
We can't wait to share 31 Days of Halloween with you this year, and hope you enjoy it as much as we know we will! If you'd like to be on our Wicked Blog List, sign up below by September 28; all Wicked Blogs Participants will receive a link to grab their button and participant list on Sept 29. Hoppers, Lurkers, and those who just want to check out the fun, start out on the S&S Blog on October 1st! Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!

I decided to use Fez and Spiderella in my creation today.  My card measures 6x6 and my color palette was pulled from two pieces of Basic Grey DP.  I knew when I saw these images that I was going to use that line...something about it....called to me!!  =)  Ya...that happens sometimes when I create!  LOL!
Both of my images are colored with my Copics and trimmed out.  Again, I kept my card relatively minimalistic in order to really have the images take on a life of their own and pop.  I used 'ouchless cardboard' from GA on the front of my card with Fez, super inky distressed with Tim Holtz ink in Vintage Photo, a MS Crow embelli and an orange circular frame acrylic overlay.  
My interior holds the ever lovely Spiderella, also matted with Basic Grey DP and distressed with the same Tim Holtz ink.  I used a square of PTI cardstock distressed with TH distress ink in Peeled Paint.  
Thank you for popping by today!  I hope you have a fabulous day!!  Please remember the rules of the 31 days!!!  Have fun, leave love and keep on hoppin!!


Thanks for joining us today!!
Crafty Hugs!
