Happy Haunting...OOPS!...I Mean Hopping!

Well, hop, hop, hooray...you're here!! Yep, it's already time for another MFT release and ya'll know what that means: another happy blog hop! I'm so glad you're here, but if you didn't start at the beginning, you're missing out. Head over to Kim's Blog to do that if you didn't already because I don't want ya'll to miss a thing! What a haunting shame that would be! Here's the scoop: Tomorrow night, My Favorite Things is releasing four new sets this time and this one has already made it to my top ten list for MFT! It's called Trick or Treat With Who's That Girl and will be available tomorrow night after the release party on SCS. It makes me laugh that Flopsey is there trying to pretend he's just another little trick or treater, hoping nobody figures out his true identity! He's all about the treats, man and he'll get them any way he can!

For this card, I ventured into something a little different ya'll don't normally see from me (I'm usually just a plain A2 girl) and made a rounded gate-fold card for you to check out. Ooohh, Aaaahh!! I didn't use traditional "Halloween" colors either, but I really like the way it turned out and the Trick or Treat With Who's That Girl set really makes the card shine! It's kept closed with a couple of large silver eyelets with my new favorite ribbon---MFT's black PLAID from the Perfect Plaid Ribbon Nest. I used it on another Halloween card that I'll be showing ya'll a little later.

But for now, it's time to go haunt someone else's blog along the Hop: Michele over at Papercuts is waiting for you to come and see her!

SUSIE Q-TIP: Be sure that before you start sewing, your machine is set to the right stitch that you're expecting it to be. In the case of this card, the zig-zag stitch was a "surprise" touch, but now I actually am glad it turned out that way. Or don't look and let your card turn out to be a surprise. It's kind of like sewing, roulette-style.

Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukineko)
