Magnolia-licious Blog hop - Bats and Broomsticks!!!!

Woohoo!!!! It's time for another Manolia-licious blog hop! This month our theme is Bats and Broomsticks! I love Halloween and all the fun it brings. I love draping spider webs and creepy music and tombstones in the yard!! LOL! If you made your way here from the oh-so-talented Janiel, then you're on the right track. If not, then please head back to the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog to start at the beginning.  I don't want you to miss any of the spooktacular delights the design team has cooked up for you in their cauldrons!  I chose to use this adorable #398 Sitting Witch Tilda,  the cutest bat in the history of stamps #479 Bat. The tombston is also a Magnolia stamp from the So Spooky collection, but it appears it's not in stock right now. If you're interested, please just send Diana an email and ask her if she's got some on order. There are tons of fabulous Halloween stamps in stock and available right now over at Magnolia-licious!

Now for the FUN stuff! I'm giving away this cute Sitting Witch Tilda stamp along with the adorable bat stamp to one lucky person that leaves a comment on this post before midnight Friday night, Sept 24th!! One comment per person please, and I'll ship anywhere. Now it's time to make your way over to see the fabulously talented Mindy! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
