I am totally psyched [no, not psycho... well, not really]

Woo Hoo!!! Here it is!! Number 100. Ok, so not THAT big of a deal, but I seriously didn't think I would keep up even this well with the whole blogging thing. That being said, let us now commence on the BLOG CANDY! Yes, yes, you can win some splendiferous (is that a real word?) yumminess from little ol' me!

[I just LOVE saying 'little' and 'me' in the same sentence :) ]

Leave a comment on THIS POST...I will NOT be revealing the goodness until all the entries are in and the winner has been selected [insert evil cackle here]. If you saw what I gave away last time, just know that it will be waaaaaaay BETTER than that.

Here is some more good news: I'm one of the winners for TAC's monthly contests! Go check out all of the other wonderful creations from a few of my fellow Angels here!

Now, for the info on my Brewin' Dark Angel card for today. This was another submission for a contest that didn't win, but it is actually one of my favorite cards [probably because it is Halloweenie].
Stamps: Just Dream, Happy Haunting, and Spooky Swirls
Paper: Miss Moxie SWIC (tag) & cardstock
Ink: Noir Palette
Coloring Medium: color pencils w/ mineral oil blending
Bling: Stickles
Misc.: Scrapper's Floss, pop dots, staple

Isn't she cool? I love taking an image totally NOT meant for Halloween, and creeping-it-out!

What do you think?
