A Haunting We Will Go-Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!!!  Here I am with another Bendi card-this one themed for Halloween.  I just had to do something wonderful for my Mom.  She is the lucky recipient of this little number and she LOVE IT!!!!  lol  She said she has it opened up and displayed on her television so she can see it everyday.  Bless her heart, I knew she would think it was cute.
This is how it looks opened up.  Isn't it fun?  I used lots of CottageCutz dies along with Tim Holtz dies and some stickers to create all the scenes.  It was a blast.
Here is the center of the card.
This is the left side of the card opened.
The is the right side opened.
This is always a fun night for me.  I enjoy seeing all the kids in the neighborhood come dressed up and knocking at my door.  They're so cute.  I remember making all my boys costumes.....yikes.  Anywhere from the Power Rangers to Darth Vader.  On great thing is they kept all the Star Wars costumes I made.  I don't think anyone will ever tire of Star Wars, do you?  Thanks for visiting.  I sure do appreciate it.  Happy Halloween!

A fabulous bendi card, Carol! You must have had a lot of fun embellishing this masterpiece! I cannot get over all the unique details, die cuts, and tiny adventures in each little inch of your creation. The bats look especially creepy with their swirly/wrought iron wings! How cute! The white ghosts really pop out the rest of the pretty colors, don't they? I love the words and candy corn, and dates, and and and and everything! Amazing artwork, Carol. Happy Halloween! hugs, de

Of course your mom has it on display Carol. It's amazing and awesome. (If it were in my house, I'd keep it out and just build the Christmas village around it.) I especially like all the intricate wrought iron.
Making costumes was one of my favorite parts of Halloween ...

hi carol again me..to answer to your question: yes the "dia de los muertos" holiday in Mexico is a mix with the catholic one all saint's day...the holiday is from Aztec times before the arrival of the Spanish in America. When they Christianized this part of the world, they combined both traditions and now it is a mix of a pre-hispanic tradition with a catholic one...it is what is called "synchretism"...
and my VIDEO for the triple easel card is up and running now
hugs

OM Gosh Carol! Look at the 42,0001 details on this! So pretty and so cool - you could spend hours finding new things on it!!!! So if you totaled the punches and die cuts you may just win the all time highest punch tally - a true Punchkateer dream this is! Love the shading, paint splatters, the cool fence, and the glitter the most but it is all wonderfully done. A true Carol original. Miss ya! Kenny said that the hunting season has been extended a bit into Feb but only one week - I sure hope you are still planning to come! Hugz!
