KBD - Halloween Blog Hop!!

Hey everyone!!

Sorry about the posting, unposting, posting and unposting.  I think I got the time right now! hahaha! Enjoy!!

Today there is a special DT blog hop hosted by the Kitties & Bees from Kitty Bee Designs.  You should have popped over from Niki's blog but if you didn't no worries, you can find the list at the Kitty Bee Designs blog by clicking HERE.  I'll also make sure to add the list to the bottom of my post.  Our super talented illustrator & owner of Kitty Bee Designs, Ruth Johnson, has done it again and today we get to share her latest Halloween images with you.  Oh my everyone you're gonna love these new images! They have the signature Kitty Bee cuteness stamped all over them!  These stamps are available in the Etsy store right now.  Keep reading for a bonus coupon code you can use on your purchase in honor of Labor Day.

Did I mention there were prizes?
  • 3 lucky commentators will win a digital image of their choice from the new release. 
  • In order to be eligible make sure you visit everyone's blog and leave a comment (1 comment per blog please).  
  • Why?  We're randomly picking 3 blogs from the hop and from those chosen we'll randomly pick a comment from each and they will be the winners for this release.
  • **Now not all the blogs will get picked so you raise your chances by leaving a comment on all the blogs. 
  • Hop ends a week from today, 9/7/14 at 11pm Hawaii time.  
  • Winners will be announced on Tuesday, 9/9/14 on the Kitty Bee Designs blog.
In honor of Labor Day, Ruth is offering up the following coupon code:

  2. Offer good between 8/29 and 9/5.
  3. Can be used on your purchase for both clear and digital stamps.

How can you resist that?!  Head on over there after the hop and pick up the whole release and any new images you see there.

Ok now that all the important stuff is out of the way let's get on to the fun stuff!  Here's my project featuring Frankin Owl, and his family wishing you all a Happy Halloween!

Had some fun creating a spooky cute scene with Frankin owl.  After printing him out 3 more times I used Copics markers to give them each their own identity.  It's my very own little Frankin owl family.

The background is a MIC digi which I colored with Distress inks and used my cloud stencil.  The kawaii tree is from the Cricut Create a Critter 2 cartridge.  I used a wood stamp to add more details and went over him with Distress inks too.  The picket fence is from Whiff of Joy and the grass is actually an icicle border from CC Designs (CC Cutter).  Last was adding the Happy Halloween sentiment up top, which is from AmyR for CC Designs.  Here's a close-up of the family....

I hope you enjoyed my share today.  Your next stop on the hop is Elina's blog.  I bet she's going to make you squeal with her reveal.  Don't forget to leave a comment before you go.  I hope you have fun with the rest of the hop and don't forget to pick up some of the new stamps that are in the Etsy store right now.

Mahalo for stopping by!!
