Halloween for Edwin

Hi Friends :o)

Halloween is getting mighty close.

I am sure all your little ones are very excited!

I really hope the weather is good for that evening.

We have had a lot of rain in the last week,
catching up for our very long and hot 
summer.

I heard today there is already snow near our
house that we will have to drive through as 
we arrive home late Monday afternoon.

************

Today is our 
INSPIRATION CHALLENGE

As you know our DESIGN TEAM member
CATHY has chosen our challenges this month.

This week her CHALLENGE is
HALLOWEEN!!!!

I had so much fun making my card for this challenge.
I decided to use Mummy Edwin # 145 from the
SO SPOOKY COLLECTION 2009.
Poor Edwin doesn't see the light very often.



I have used Memory Box Dies:
Swooping bats
Wrought iron fence
Wrought iron gate.
All purchased from Diana's store.

The pumpkins were stamped using Halloween
Collection 2008. I stamped twice then cut out 3
pumpkins and put them across the bottom.
The Wrought Iron fence and gate were cut and then
put over the pumpkins. 

Edwin was coloured in rags 
then raised on 3D tape between the opening of the
gate and fence.  After I cut the bats out
I placed them on 3D tape as well.

I had the orange swirl bling in my stash
and laid it over the paper.
Speaking of the paper!
I have had it for YEARS and am sorry 
I don't  remember who made it :o(
I cut the part of it that I wanted.
It had more things on it as well.
I also had a brad that I added
on the top right - it is black with
a half moon and two tiny stars.

Here are more pictures for you:







Certainly hope you will join us in our Challenge
for Halloween!

Check out DIANA'S
STORE for all of your needs.

There are several NEW
Stamp Collections there as well
as some great dies!
