Zva Creative October DT Blog Hop

Zva Creative and my fellow Design Team members welcome you to our October blog hop. This month we are celebrating fall and Halloween and are excited to be sharing our new work with you! Thanks so much for joining us!
Today's Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's Facebook pageBe sure head on over to check it out! 
Here's a list of participants (in case there is a glitch along the way):

As you know, Zva offers many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals.  If you like what you see along the hop you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.
I decided to go along with a Halloween theme since it is only days away...and my sweet husband happens to love this time of year (I think it's the decorations...and the fun generated by giving some of the Trick or Treaters a bit of scare with our ghouls and monsters around the yard).

In retrospect...this card is very busy. Though there's only 3 colors, there's a lot going on pattern-wise. The spider web is simply a sticker from Jolee's Boutique, the sentiment is stamped from
Verve's Boo to You set and I enhanced the card with the addition of Zva Creative's Symmetrical Flourishes (G)-clear.

If you would like to play along with our design team, just follow along the blog path.  I am linking to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. Be prepared to be inspired along the way!
The Blog Hop starts today, October 28th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, October 29th.
Hidden on FIVE of the designer's blogs is a Zva Creative prize package! Winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over. All you need to do is leave a comment on this Blog Hop post... you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. However, the more times you comment along the blog hop path, the more chances you will have to win.

The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, October 30th on Zva Creative's Facebook page!
We also thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize!  To increase your chances of winning:
* Comment to let us know that you posted on your Facebook page about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)
* Comment to let us know that you "tweeted" about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)
* Comment to let us know that you asked your local store to carry Zva creative products.  If they already do, that's fantastic, maybe you can suggest other products that they don't carry.
