There are SO many new sets being peeked today, and I am THRILLED to be able to share with you my most favorite set of this release, and to date, my most favorite Moka...Moka Tabitha!  ACK!  LOVE LOVE LOVE her!!!  She is the latest in the Moka Collection which is illustrated by Nancy McKinney...they just don't get any cuter!

I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers.  The patterned paper is all from Spookville from We R Memory Keepers.  LOVE the colors in these papers.  I cut out a circle of black cardstock that I impressed with the new (and awesome) Spooky Impression Plate (love). 

The bats were cut with the new Tiny Toppers Dies.  I am not quite sure if they are bats are holly leaves...but they could be both!  Bonus!  I kept the sentiment treatment simple, and stamped "Spooky and Sweet", cut it into a little tag and tucked it under the focal panel.  I added Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to both my circle panel and to the bats...of course, using Embellie Gellie to get them just where I wanted them!

I added a border with the Small Scallop Border Die and the impressed circle and focal panel are popped up with Foam Tape for some dimension.

Here are the Taylored Dies and Impression Plate I've used on my card:
