Low light photo of my pumpkin carving skills. Even though it's blurry, I love how the candlelight glows. The flash version had no spooky quality and was completely lacking in blurriness.
A forum friend alerted me to this lovely paper pumpkin. All my tools are metric so I just used the imperial measurements as a rough guide.
My ghosts are made using Paisley Leaves X-Cut Nesting Dies, Black ProMarker or googly eyes.
The mini pumpkins (shown back to front) are made using Swiss Dot embossed orange card & ProMarker coloured white paper cut with Oval Nesties. Stalks were cut with the Paisley Leaves.
My spiders are last years & I can't find the link.
We had great fun making our decorations & trick or treating.
Oíche Shamhna shona duit!

This card contains so many of my go to items. My Martha Stewart Butterfly punch is always at hand, I use it so much I can justify buying more, can't I?! Lawn Fawn Quinn's ABCs is such a fun set, it can be used in so many ways & as soon as Quinn's 123s became available they were mine! A white gel pen was one of my first crafty purchases & it's still going strong over a year later. From this you can tell I don't craft as much as I'd like, but I have a second pen ready to takeover from the first. Glossy accents provides my favourite textured finish & Cuttlebug's D'vine Swirls embossing folder is so versatile I've not tired of it yet. Spellbinders Posy Patch Dies & the matching Heartfelt creations stamps work so well together and last but not least my corner rounder punch.
Oops how did I forget it, glitter glue- everything looks good when it sparkles.
