Welcome to Day Six of the Viva Las VegaStamps! Design Team's Halloween party that goes everyday through TOMORROW.

I will giveaway a fabulous blog candy prize at the end of the hop drawn from all new followers of my blog.

We've got a full week of HALLOWEEN inspiration, blogs, prizes, contests and - each day will feature a different way to be entered to win a prize. So plan to drop by every day for your chance to win.

This Elf has Escaped from the Workshop for a Nap!

You may not know this {unless you are one of my loyal followers} - but I have been creating at least one Christmas card every week since last Christmas. This is a challenge from my Unscripted Sketches team. Today is also Festive Friday, and I couldn't resist bringing a little Christmas into the Halloween fun! 

I've been so inspired by our Design Team Leader, DeeDee's monochromatic tags, so I wanted to give this a try. I stamped my scene and my elf on kraft cardstock in black dye ink. The sleeping elf is fussy cut and tinted with Ranger Distress markers applied with a waterbrush. I also used my water brush to dilute the picket fence distress marker to give a whitewash cast to the moon.

**TODAY'S GAME - PLAY to WIN** Collect the letters from all the blogs in the hop and email me the "SECRET WORD" to CLICK HERE to visit VLVS! Halloween stamps and HERE to go to VLVS! on Facebook.
