Our Queen of Halloween! - Whimsy Stamps Blog Hop

 Hello ghoulfiends! (;

The Halloween weekend is very special for our very own Whimsy Stamps Queen of Halloween -
Deb Davis (Amped2Stamp) (Whimsy Stamps Creative Director)

Deb and her family were caught in Hurricane Ian and it is taking some time for them to get back to any sort of normal life.  They are sadly still without some amenities.

This means, along with daily trials she can do without, our dear Deb has not been able to celebrate her favourite season - Halloween!

At Whimsy Stamps we thought we would do a little something for Deb to remind her how much she means to us and to help brighten the day! - (which as we are celebrating Halloween should probably be 'darken the day' but you know what I mean)!

We are having a Halloween blog hop, supported by Whimsy Stamps and the Creative Team.

There is a $100 voucher for one lucky winner so check out the blog hop entry requirements carefully at the end of this post!

I decided to mix up some bats and dragons - the story I made up in my mind being that once a year on Halloween they are dancing together in the night sky to celebrate the spookiest night of the year!
