And there goes another weekend, so fast! I had a great weekend and hope you did too. Yesterday it was gloomy so I crafted in the morning and then went with a friend of mine to see the Rise of the Jack-O-Lanterns at Westbury Gardens. I have to say that it was pretty neat! It starts at 7:00pm, with groups going through every 15 minutes and you can take your time and linger. It’s also pretty cool because at the end there is a walk through a completely overgrown path and then a nice walk along the pond. I took a bunch of pictures and I have a few to share with you. A nice bonus was that I got to see my Sandy who was there with some of her family!
The first one is the really neat sign that they have at the entrance.
The next one is a really cool Edward Scissorhands made from a bunch of pumpkins.
Up next is a really cool city scene complete with a set of subway cars.
This last one I just thought was so cool, it is a very realistic wave.
Now those were some pretty awesome pumpkins! I wish I would have brought a camera so I could have zoomed in to get a little closer but I’m so use to taking pictures with my iPhone I never think about a camera!
It’s Monday which means it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This week we have a fun Halloween theme challenge from the lovely Nance…
I was going to do the treat holder but then I was possessed by the need to make a Halloween card with Gumball Green! The base of the card is Basic Black Card Stock and the background is a piece of Gumball Green. For the top and bottom of the card I cut out some Silver Glimmer Paper and Pumpkin Pie with the Large Scallop Edgelit Die and layered them. My fun little skulls are from the Halloween Hello Stamp Set and are stamped in Jet Black Staz-On and cut out with my Paper Snips. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold them securely to the Glimmer Paper. The greeting is from the Seasonal Sayings Stamp Set (which is a carry-over from last year’s Holiday Catalog) and is markered in Gumball Green and Pumpkin Pie. I used the Chalk Talk Framelits Dies to cut it out and another piece of Silver Glimmer Paper. Under that is a piece of Basic Black that I cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits Dies and embossed it using the “Vintage” Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love Gumball Green for a Halloween card and the Glimmer Paper and the skulls are just fun! Thank you very much for stopping by to see my Paper Players card for this weeks Halloween theme challenge from Nance. Have a bearable Monday peeps! 🙂
