Happy Halloween 2015



Happy Halloween 2015

One final card.

Inks: Archival Black ink 140931
Papers: Night of Navy, Tangerine Tango, Smoky Slate, Whisper White and Pear Pizzaz cardstocks, 
Accessories: Note Tag Punch 135860, 1 1/4" circle punch 119861, Fringe Scissors 133325, 1 1/4" burlap ribbon 132140, dazzling diamonds glitter, Tombo green glue, blender pens

This card also uses the "star technique" from the October 30, 2015 post on how to.

To make the pumpkins I punched out two circles for each and then hand-trimmed them to create the pumpkin grooves. I cut the burlap ribbon in half and then fringed it. The tombstones where wrinkled and then flattened then sponged to age them.

I hope you all had a safe and very fun filled Halloween. Ours was a lot of fun meeting new neighbors. It is the first year our kids didn't go trick-or-treating but they still dressed up in costume. I went as the Frightening Neighbor Lady (smile). 

You can see from my other post dated today what some of our decorations looked like. Since we downsized to a much smaller house we do not have a lot of room to store our several dozen boxes of Halloween decorations anymore. We are using more natural items that can be composted later. It costs more in up front money, but saves us the headache of storage. 

I do regret that we didn't get out our Halloween lighted houses. We have a large collection of at least 10 lighted pieces that are adorable. Since we are not settled in yet, and even better, are moving furniture around as the tricksters arrive (not kidding), we had no place to put them. They have not been out on display in a few years and we all miss them. If we do not get them out next year it might be time to say good-bye, so there is my motivation to make it happen. 

Thank you for stopping by! Happy hauntings, Sandy
