SPOOKY Pointed Tag - BBTB Challenge & Blog Hop!

Look what you could WIN just by leaving me a comment!
Happy Monday to All My Bloggy Friends!

So, it's Monday again and its time for a new challenge from Bitten By The Bug. This week Regina asked us to use the pointed tag from the Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. She also asked us to use a Halloween or Fall theme as well. I decided to make a Halloween banner.
I cut out all my pieces then I started stamping my orange paper with a cheese cloth stamp and brown ink, just to give it a little extra sumthin' to look at. Then I made some paper flowers, added some buttons, ribbon, ric-rac, dew drops, flowers and dots.

After I finished all the pieces, I glued them to a long piece of ribbon....tah-dah, a Spooky Halloween Banner! LOL! Jake will be using this banner to decorate his apartment door for a Halloween contest they are having at the end of this week.....I hope it helps him out!
I hope you can go over and visit the Bitten By The Bug site and just look at all the wonderful creations the other designers made this week....WOW, they are awesome! Now if you are playing along with the blog hop, you should have arrived from the UBER talented Ms. Carole and now to keep playing along.....please hop on over to the wonderfully talented Shelly's blog for more chances to WIN!

♥For a chance to WIN my blog candy up at the top of this post, just leave me a comment by Friday night at midnight my time. I will draw a name using random.org and post the winner on Saturday.

THANKS for popping in to see me today, please join me next time for more card fun! HUGS!
