"Halloween Army Witch"

Welcome to the LAST day of 31 Days of Halloween Hop by Smeared & Smudged!! I can't believe the whole month is gone and that today is "Halloween/Samhain"! Where did the whole month go? This makes me a bit sad; but I know that there will be other events coming up before the end of the year. Be sure to hop, fly, creep, or crawl through all of the creations today (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 my post is going to be a bit long as I have lots to show and tell you!!! First for my creation... I created a card for the Guest Design Team Challenge over at Smeared & Smudged. Laura (Madeleine) was the lucky GDT for the month of October and she had a wonderful color challenge for us; we were to use at least 3 of the 6 colors (I think I hit all of them)! See the inspiration picture and color layout below.) Since I needed to create a gorgeous card so I could go out with a "bang", I used the sketch from "Graphicat Designs". (See sketch below also!) And the last thing that I will be showing is "Our Spooky Halloween Tree" with all the ornaments that I made this year, ya know the ones y'all had read through and look at... Hee-Hee!!  Okay... let me get you on your way..
