We will have two days of blog hopping (October 8th and 9th) and THREE prizes!

There will be a prize for each of the two hop days (comment entries open until 10pm CT each day) and a bonus prize will be awarded on the final day of our hop from all the comments left for both days. Comment entries will stay open until Friday at 10PM CT. Winners will be announced the following day. Good luck!

So….if you miss a day or time deadline your comments will still count for a chance to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate!

All of the new dies you'll be seeing on the hop are available NOW! www.iostamps.com

For my card today, I used the brand new  Halloween Landscape Layers.  The set comes with two layers, but I cut an extra layer of the graves with crosses.  For each layer, I went progressively darker from light grey to black.  I added a bit of yellow paper behind the jack o'lantern faces so that they would stand out more and the popped up the entire landscape scene on top of a background I created with glossy paper and alcohol inks.
