Day 12 of 31 Days: Spooky Girls

Greetings! It's Day 12 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. And, there is a new challenge over at Dilly Beans today as well. The challenge for this week is "Spooky Girls." If you are participating in the 31 Days, this is SUPER easy for you to do! I made this a couple of weeks ago, and I have been itching to share it with all of you. I hope you like it!

Isn't she fabulous? I used "Framed Zombie Cupid- #265" I colored this image entirely with watercolor paints. And I LOVED doing it!

She definitely fits the bill for this week's theme. She is totally spooky, but also very sweet.

I added some bugs using a Martha Stewart cupcake decorating stencil and chalk. My sentiment is from Stampendous!. The icky spiders are from a Martha Stewart paper pad. I love how this card came out. I really took my time with it, to get it all just how I wanted it. It was one of my favorite things I've made for 31 Days so far. But, now it's time for you to see what everyone else has come up with for Day 12. I'd like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone that has been stopping by and leaving me some love. There is no way that I could say hello to everyone, so I try to hit a few of you each day. Please know, that I am certainly looking at what everyone has made. You are all so talented, and I am inspired by each of you. Keep up the amazing work! The entire Wicked Blogger list is in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!
