Welcome to Day 14 of 31 Days of Halloween Hop by Smeared & Smudged!! We are well on our way into the second week as a Wicked Bloggers, and let me tell you I am having so much fun creating!!! I finally got my mind focused on Halloween and Day of the Dead!!! As a Horrified Hopper it is very exciting to see all of the wonderful creations that all of the other Wicked Bloggers have come up with! I must say this... We have some really awesome talent and mojo happening! So be sure to hop, fly, creep, or crawl through all of the creations each day (you never know where a prize may be hidden)! If you happen to get lost along the way the whole blog roll is in the side bar to the right! If you arrived here from Tori's blog, then you are on track... if you didn't and would like to start from the beginning, head on over to Terra' s blog!!!

Today I have a Gothic Arch Card to share with you!!! Normally I don't do fancy folds or shape cards; however last month I was a GDT at Smeared & Smudged and this was my challenge project. I did do one for that challenge; but after having some difficulties... I made it my mission to be master it!!!! Okay... let me get you on your way...
