The first ever Lawnscaping Blog Hop

Hello everyone and Welcome to the first ever Lawnscaping Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from the talented Linda's blog then you are on the right track. If you want the complete list of participants, then go HERE to the Lawnscaping Blog.
 This months theme is all about Holidays: Christmas, Halloween, Valentine...really magical. I adore Lawn Fawn stamps. Now most of you, like me also think they are cute and adorable but I say they are really versatile...I am keeping my post short today as you all have many blogs to visit. If you have any questions please leave them in the comment section and I will answer them.

So my first card is for those of you who feel it difficult to create fun cards but are really creative with the shabby style and mix media.Everything started here as white paper except the Ghosts and I used Happy haunting stamp set. Pls. click on the photos for a bigger and better look.

 Check the close ups for the tiny details...they are plenty. Love the spooky feel and all the distressing, crackle, torn edges, embossing, distress inked background, dimension and tiny eyes on the bats, moon, etc....

 Now my 2nd. card is well cute and adorable. I used two new sets (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum and Making frosty friends)Check out all the textures, paper-piecing, coloring, embossing, stitching and glossy accents. Love birds on the train ride thru the snow:)


Last but not least, there are lots of prizes including Lawn Fawn to win, so hop along and make sure to leave comments on all the blogs. You have until Sunday September 11th. For more details on the prizes go and check at the Lawnscaping blog.

Your next stop on the hop is the  talented and creative Tamara's blog.

Since both the cards have embossing, I am submitting them to the challenge at the Lawnscaping blog too. Yes!! that's right you can participate in the bi-weekly challenges too. Love their challenges.

Thanks for hopping by and have fun.

These are both amazingly fabulous! There is so much going on in the Halloween card, I don't think your pictures do it justice, I'm sure it is even more amazing in person! And the little train is just adorable. I love the snow you added and the little birds from Frosty Friends! Wow, I'm so inspired. I am going to have to paper piece me a train very soon. Thanks for showing me that all the train cars do not have to be the same color and it still totally works!!!!
