Halloween Isn't Too Far Away

This is something I whipped up yesterday when I had a free hour. This is what a ghostrider would look like if it went trick-or-treating. If I can find the right frame, I'll hang it up somewhere for the next week.

Something Besides ATCs

I am so glad to say that this is not an ATC. I finally got around to doing a bigger cut. This was inspired by the story of Anne Shirley walking the ridge pole in the story Anne of Green Gables. The border took awhile to cut, and my fingers were sore by the time I was done. I guess I need to cut more often and build up those calluses once more.

County Fair

This month's ATC theme is the county fair. This first cut is of the dreaded judges who decide whether your work is worthy of that coveted blue ribbon.

Here is the winning jar of canned peaches. I love to look at the displays at the county fair, but it is hard to be excited about looking at jars of fruits and vegetables.

What is a fair without animals? Other than the rides, the animals are always the kids favorite thing to see. I personally don't care much about pigs, but they make interesting papercuts.

The last cut represents those big trailers that show up that claim to have the world's biggest something inside that will only cost you $5 to see. I wonder what is really in those mysterious boxes, but the ticket price always keeps me ignorance. Here is the world's biggest horse.
