Little Hop of Horrors!

Welcome to Canadian Nickel Scrap’n “Little Hop of Horrors” Halloween Blog Hop!!! Who hoo! Can you believe all the amazing things Nicole has been previewing for this hop? and the amazing prizes she has lined up for you all?!?! OMG! Im amazed and wishing.....well that I could participate and WIN too!!! LOL Anyhow....hopefully you have landed here from the incredibly talented Catherine (Paper Addict Catherine) If not and you've just stumbled upon me (thanks!!!) You're gonna wanna hop back to the beginning at  Haunted House Design Now....without further delay....here is my project....
Now, can you see what I did here?? I have used some aloe vera gel in a zip lock baggie with some creepy spiders and bats.....
So if you push on it, the spiders move!! It's SO COOL! OK, so I know some of you may have seen this done like forever ago.....but it's new to me! And well, something I have some more plans for!! LOL Here's another view where you can see the Gel more.
Cool huh?!? Such a fun technique! And pretty easy too for that matter. OK, so one more look and then I'll tell you the other details on the card AND I have a special little treat for you too!!!
Ok, So that cool paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle! Love it! The font is from QK called Super Market and those cool black flowers are some I've made (there's a link to the video ). And of course, that gorgeous Devilish Rio is from Simply Betty Stamps

Now, here's my little surprise - giveaway for you. I am starting to design some of my own stamps and well, thought I'd give you all alittle freebie, rather than ONE person winning you can ALL have a fun Halloween saying for your cards. All I ask is that you become a follower (you never know when I'm gonna give away some more!!! Even perhaps an image)  and have fun with it!!! Here it is y'all.


You should be able to just click on the image and hit save. Hope you like it and it fits in with some of your Halloween Projects!  OK! This is a much longer post than I meant it to be!!!

Your next stop is the extra special, uber talented....



Happy Hopping!!!!
Cheers Cheri
