Hello and welcome to October! You have hopefully arrived from Barb's post. If not, it's okay there will be a list at the end of my post so you can hop to everyone's blog.
My card is simple and sweet. I am not a fan of scary Halloween. I do love the Day of the Dead though. And especially sugar skulls. The skill and talent it takes to make them is amazing. The Desert Botanical Garden here in Phoenix does a celebration of the Day of the Dead and has artists make up the altars paying tribute to the dead. I enjoy going to see what they dream up every year.
My card uses three colors of cardstock; Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black and Crushed Curry. The new cat punch was one of the first things I ordered when I got the new catalog. I love it! I do hope Stampin' Up comes out with more matching stamps for this punch!!
I also used the largest circle in the Layering Circles dies to cut out the "moon". Then I used the cat punch to punch out the silhouette of the cat from the "moon". The stamp is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
I found that the post office had Halloween stamps!! I ordered them on line, as well as my stamps for Thanksgiving and Christmas!! Yes, I had to pay $1.75 to have ALL the stamps sent to me, but I feel like it is a BIG WIN not having to go to the Post Office!! Plus the offices near me never seem to have the stamps I want. And these Jack O Lantern stamps are adorable!
I will be in the Fall arts and Crafts fair at Trilogy on Saturday, October 21st! starts at 9:00 and runs to 2:00. Get a jump on Christmas gifts. I hope to see you there. Happy Halloween!
Let's hop to Mary's blog and see what she has done!
