Happy Halloween with MDUC and A Treat

Happy Halloween weekend everyone!  Time for trick or treaters and fun dressing up.  My girls and hubby love love love Halloween while I stay behind handing out treats.  So how about a blog treat too!  Keep reading for all the deets at the end of my post.

This week's Magnolia Down Under Challenge falls on Halloween so we're challenging you to create something Halloween-inspired.  It could be Halloween colours, costumes or even something to do with candy. 

I want to take this opportunity to also express my heartfelt thanks to the MDUC team.  I've had an amazing time with these super talented gals and am very thankful they honoured me with a Guest DT spot for the month of October. This card brings my Guest DT spot to a close but I'll be back playing with their challenges as a participant.  Be sure to checkout the awesome DT's creations for inspiration so you can get inky and join in the fun too!

I've had this Tilda for a while and thought it was time I inked her up.  She is currently sold out at Magnolia-licious but if you send Diana an email she'd be happy to order it for you.  Most of the embellishments and papers used on the card are from my stash.  Some are scraps I've had for over a year ~ eek.  I've been hoarding these googly eyes since March when I scooped them up in Florida.  They are so cool all propped up on mini springs so they move around like they're following you ~ oooooooh forgot to take a side view pic for you.  

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
OK, are you ready for my Halloween treat for one lucky participant?  Here's Loving Tilda from the 2009 Love Collection.  All you have to do is link with Mr. Linky below by Sunday, October 31 at 10pm EST.  If you want to post a pic in your sidebar with a link back here that would be greatly appreciated but is not required.  A random winner will be announced on Monday, November 1.

Happy Halloween Hugs,

Hi Maria, thanks for the chance at the candy, I posted it in my sidebar! Did you make your own rhinestone flourishes? LOL I tried on a card I am posting later this weekend. After looking at yours I think my stones need to be smaller, particularly on the flourish ends! Thanks!
