World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop Day 4 of 5 Days, October 5th

I am participating in the World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop. It is a 5 day hop, with this being the 4th day of the hop. I am only one participant of many. Participants are from all over the world, so please be patient with the posts. Check back later if their post is unavailable, due to different time zones. We are also donating cards to charities in different countries.

Now for the hop - if you have arrived here in blogger land and want to hop along then go back and start at the beginning at Gill's site, then come back and visit me. She is the hostess and there are 10 participants each day. You will also find out about all of the blog candy that is up for grabs. 

Each day remember to leave  comments on ALL of the blogs in the hop, as you need to comment to be eligible to win the prizes, divided up into a top 3, and Gill will announce the winners  later in the week after the hop closes on her blog. 

If you get lost along the way, here is the line-up for day 4.

Now on to my card. I am in the middle of making Halloween cards, so I decided since it is October and my house is decorated that I would post a Halloween card. It is one of my favorite holidays. There is no stress, just fun costumes and candy. I enjoy all of the fall colors too and some of my decorations are left up until after Thanksgiving. We take a trip to a special pumpkin patch farm every year and now with having grandkids it is an all day outing, with many activities for the kids, a hay ride and a corn maze. So much fun for one day.  I love the changing of the fall leaves. Beautiful colors are abound. I also love October, because it is my birthday month. I love this card and hope you do too!
My card is a standard A2 size card. I used yellow card stock for the card. The background paper is DCWV paper that I bought at Joann's. I cut a piece of orange card stock and punched the pumpkins on the top with a Martha Stewart pumpkin edge puncher, then put yellow paper behind the orange paper. I added the words Harvesting Candy, cut from a piece of Martha Stewart's Halloween pack. I think this was last year's paper. The whole thing is popped up.  The candy corn strip is from Heidi Grace Jeepers Creepers Candy Corn paper. I then used a tag that I had in my stash that was the right color, along with some pumpkin ribbon and a brad. Then I cut out the boots from Heidi Grace Jeepers Creepers Boots paper, popped them up and added the pumpkin, which is from Sandylion Essentials. It is also popped up.

I decided that the inside of the card needed to be decorated too, so I cut a piece of harvest yellow card stock out on the Spellbinder, using the 2nd to the largest Fleur De Lis die.  The sentiment is stamped with an acrylic stamp from Studio G and then embossed.  The candy and candy corn is stamped with Studio G acrylic stamps and then colored with Copics. I popped up the candy pieces. The trip on the top and bottom is from the same Heidi Grace paper as the candy corn paper from the front, just a different strip on the paper was used.

Your next stop is Theresa. Make sure to continue on and see what these talented ladies have made for you to see today
