Thanks for coming to day 2 of our Hop!!  Today's post is more die cuts to use for scrapbooking, cards, to decorate treat bags, etc.   Some of my pictures didn't save on my camera like I thought so I only have a couple of pictures. Not my usual pictures that I try to have step by step.  Sorry!!
Today I used the Happy Haunting cricut cartridge ( Have I told you how much I LOVE it?), I used black cardstock, purple cardstock, orange, and green cardstock, red stickles, adhesive and large pop dots (the kind the really pop up a project).

I cut the Headless Horseman, and the pumpkin @ 5".  First I cut the purple layer, then the black for the Horseman.  Then I cut the green layer, then the orange layers for the pumpkin.

Then I layered the black on top of the purple.  I layered the orange pumpkin on the green and added red stickles on the horse for his eye, then on the eyes of the pumpkin.  I then attached the pumpkin to the horseman's hand with a large pop dot.

I know you can't see it very well, but the pumpkin looked great with the red eyes!  I can't wait to use it on a scrapbook page.. I love the story of Ichabod Crane!! Soo Spooky!  Happy Halloween everyone!!

                                                             Now on to your next stop!

Have a great day and please stop back tomorrow for another great project!

I also love the tale of the Headless Horseman especially told by Walt Disney in animation. I have this cartridge and didn't even know there was a headless horseman on there. Hmm. Well I love yours and now will have to make one of my own. TFS and being a part of this hop with me. I'm a follower.

Where I grew up, there was a bar&grill called "The Headless Horseman"... This was one place I would always steer clear of cuz the story of Ichabod Crane was soooooooooo scary to me!! Your images certainly brought that memory back!! LOL... Great job with the cuts!! :)

I'm so glad I got to hop with you!!
