Halloween Blog Hop

Click HERE to start the hop!

Starting October 30, 2009!

The Time is here!
Woo Hoo..... START HERE for the Halloween blog hop - If you arrived from Cheri's blog, you are on the right spot

I love Halloween! My entire family loves Halloween, but it is my husbands all time favorite holiday- probably because his birthday is at the beginning of the month. A couple years ago we had a big Halloween party, new home party and birthday all in one, but he had no idea about any of it. I decorated one of the spare rooms in a Halloween theme using that plastic wall paper. It was hard work, but so worth it. I also got a fog machine and set it up- found out real fast that they don't work so well inside: it set the smoke detectors off and that's when DH found out my secret. It was rather humorous, but ruined the big grand finale that I had planned.

I have a card all ready to share, but my camera decided to stop working, so I will have to post it later when I figure out what happened to it. It was either the puppy or the baby- either way, it could be a while LOL. This card will be here until I upload my new one. This image is from Sew Many Cards.

In the mean time, we will be having a drawing for some prizes. The first prize will be for $10 at Digital-Ink co. If you have never been there, be sure to stop by and see the digital images- there are eight stamp creators and they are all very different.

  • Three entries for doing a project that is Halloween themed and linking to Mr. Linky, or commenting with the link if he is not working.
  • One entry for a great Halloween story - true or not- put into the comments
  • Two entries for a picture of you in a Halloween costume.
Make sure to check out the other Blogs in the line-up for fabulous prizes-

I can't say that Halloween is my favorite holiday (I certainly don't decorate much for it like you) but for the reason you give for it being your DH's favorite, will probably make it be my DS#2's favorite since his b-day is one week after it.

Great to see you here on the hop.

Gorgeous card and great story. With regards to your camera, yup it probably is baby or puppy. My daughter destroyed my phone when she was teething and my 18 month -2yr old dog is chewing anything and everything at the moment

love you card. Wonderful job on your coloring on the pumpkin. That is some story. Happy Halloween

Lori said...

Hmm, I may have done something wrong - I put my link in the wrong spot - so sorry about that. (embarrassed)

Your card is stunning - details are magnificent. I love Halloween and hearing all of these stories has been great.

Fabulous card. The colouring is amazing! I don't really have the criteria for the challenge excpet to relate the story I posted on the previous blog. 20 odd years ago, when my boys were little, we didn't do Halloween here in GB, so I had to improvise. There were no pumpkins either in those days, so I hollowed out two oranges and placed a birthday candle in them, stuck down with Blue Tack. They were really CUTE!

Mia said...

Your card is awesome! They way you colored it is perfect! TFS!!!! :-)
