Some of you may not know this about me. My name is Boo. I'm not sure if I say that in my introduction or not. My older brother nick named me that as a baby so I don't remember being called anything else.
The other thing you probably don't know about me is that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE making Halloween cards. I don't know if I like Halloween so much because of my name or because there is something about orange, black, yellow, green and purple together that just makes me want to sigh. I don't do scary Halloween... just fun, full of smiles and laughter Halloween. No skulls or rats for me. That's too creepy for this girl. I thought I should warn all of you who are so loyal to my blog.. there are a lot of Halloween cards in this blog's near future.Hopefully a few journal pages will still be made.... we shall see.
I got the idea for this card from my friend, Pam, who made me a pop up birthday card. It had a darling flower garden that popped up in that card. I've been contemplating that card since June and yesterday I realized I just had to use that idea for my Halloween fun. I went on line looking for a tutorial and found one made by Paige at Stampologist.com. Thank you, Pam and Paige.
All the stamps used are dollar stamps from Walmart, Michaels or JoAnn's that I've had for a least a year or more. The inside paper is actually some I took out of the recycle bin. It had printing on the other side so I used a piece of pattern paper to cover the print. My acetate pieces are recycled from some packaging I had. No 2013 earned money was spent to make this card. Yeah! I used some things from my stash. Only 2 million items left to use.
Do you like Halloween? What is your favorite holiday???
