All Things Tim Burton Blog Hop Day One

Boys and girls of every age, wouldn't you like to see something strange?  If you're a Tim Burton fan, you will recognize that line from "This is Halloween" -- a well-known song from the movie  "The Nightmare Before Christmas".  With Halloween just around the corner, this is the perfect time to celebrate all things Tim Burton!  We have a talented group of ladies on this weekend blog hop.  Join us as we each share a project inspired by one of Tim's quirky characters!  

If you've just come from Tami's blog, you are right where you should be !  If you haven't but would like to start from the beginning, go to Dena's blog :  http://missdjones.blogspot.com/.  We would like to thank Karber Digital Images for sponsoring this blog hop.  Karber is giving away two digital stamps to one lucky person who comments during the blog hop.  

*** To be eligible to win, you must comment on each blog in the hop. 
*** You must become a follower of each blog.

*** The winner will be announced no later than Wednesday, October 26th.  

Now, on to the project I would like to share with you for Day One:

I did a card for you using Jack Skellington from Simply Betty Stamps. With Tim Burton's movies, there were always trees that almost came to life -- I used the haunted tree with the moon using Cricut cartridge Happy Hauntings cut at 4.75 inches. And if you know me, my most favorite cartridge is A Child's Year as I love the card shapes that are available. The card from Ghost and Goblins Stack was cut using A Child's Year using the paper from  with the inside statement as a quote from Jack Skellington The Nightmare Before Christmas. "Just because I cannot see it, doesn't mean I can't believe it!"

Please be sure to hop on over to Berenice's blog next for more Tim Burton fun!  If you get lost along the way, the complete blog hop lineup is below.  Thanks for stopping by !
