It’s time for the monthly DeNami blog hop and today the theme is HALLOWEEN. If you have started from the beginning, you should be arriving from Leah’s post. Isn’t that girl a cutie pie? I always adore seeing her cute creations! Whenever I hear she’s participating in a blog hop, I get a little giddy. I think we have a future blogger/ paper craft superstar in the making!
Over the years, I’ve created all sorts of Halloween cards, so creating some new and extraordinary is a rarity. I decided to go with a familiar card layout and change things up slightly with my stamp choices. The end result? A box exploding with candy corn!
In THIS post, I mentioned I would share what we did growing up for Halloween. Since we didn’t go trick or treating (yes, I have NEVER been), when we lived in a development, we would have hundreds of kids stop by and we would give out candy with verses on it. Once we moved out to the country, we started a different tradition. Okay….don’t laugh… Since my mom is such a huge fan of Christmas, we started decorating for Christmas on Halloween. Yes, you read that correctly. Our weeks tend to fill up quickly towards the end of the year, so having this night to get decorate works. As the years have gone by, I start to look forward to having a pretty tree up strung out with lights and decor scattered about the house by November. Bet y’all didn’t expect this to be our tradition! *wink*
I know you still have a few other stops left, so I’ll wrap this up. Head on over to Jennifer Loftfield’s blog to continue on with the hop! Be sure to leave comments on each blog stop. DeNami is giving away gift certificates to two random comments, so you won’t want to pass up the chance at a mini shopping spree!
I hope you’ve been inspired by my card today. Thanks for spending some time with me today!
