Happy Fall Harvest from the Darlings!

Hi everyone!

I'm so neglectful to my blog. Poor little bloggy woggy. :(
I'm crafting quite a bit...just can't find the time to blog about it. Ugh....

Oh well, I'm super late with the Dueling Darlings October challenge.
Terry was the Dazzlers hostess. She and LJ decided on a Halloween theme. Now, my family doesn't celebrate Halloween in regard to ghosts, spooks and gore. Our children do dress up (in Disney or Marvel costumes normally or they may be a cat or dog or football player, etc.) and we do take them out to local churches for their fall festivals and truck or treats. So, we do celebrate the holiday, we just do it more in celebration of the fall season. :)

With that being said, this kit was not hard for me to work with at all! I just trimmed off the Halloween sentiment at the bottom of the image and went with it. 

Here's what I created:

I love using my distress inks to give an aged look to crafty projects. I did that with this image (Haunted Forest from SU!). I created the moon with my white Gelly marker. I only colored the pumpkin (colored with Spectrum Noir markers). The papers Terry sent in the kit were wonderful! I picked two of them. The boots and candy corn are too cute. I added some candy dots and a brad from the kit. Then, I doodled around with my Gelly markers.

Thank you Terry and LJ for hostessing this round!
You wanted to know what my favorite candy is......oh pick just one.....I CAN'T!
sweet n' salty - PayDay candy bar
mint n' chocolate - York Peppermint Patty
cream n' caramel - Cow Tails
chocolate n' caramel - Rolos

I guess I can safely say that caramel is my favorite go to sweet treat. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time....

Melina, your card is so cute! I love the way you added the doodled lines around the image. And your coloring is great!

It is also good to see that you have a healthy sweet tooth - 4 favorite Halloween candies! ;)

I really like the card you have created Melina! Love the way you trimmed the image to make a "fall" card.

Glad you had fun with the kit!!
