Half-O-Ween ATCs - Lost Coast Portal to Creativity Halloween in May!

We are celebrating Halloween in May over at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity.  Stop by every 2nd day from today until May 31st for lots of clawesome projects, get inspired, dig out your Halloween stamps and come join the party ;0)
A $15 shopping spree at Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda is up for grabs!

Did you know that Half-O-Ween is a fairly old tradition recognized by many European countries?  In Germanic folklore, Walpurgisnacht, also called Hexennacht or Heksennacht (Dutch), literally means "Witches' Night".  Traditionally the start of Half-O-Ween is "Witches Night" on April 30th and then observed all May long.  The first known written occurrence of the English translation, "Walpurgis Night" is from the 19th century.   Many of the things we still do today but have long forgotten the reasons why originated from this time, like the ringing of Church bells and tying tin cans behind the car of newlyweds...all done to ward off evil during Half-O-Ween! 
I kicked off the event today with 2 spooktacular ATCs featuring Lost Coast Designs stamps!
Here's a teaser peek at my projects, please pop on over to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity to see each one in detail!

Ghostie "Boo" Birds

The birdies are from Lost Coast Designs newest stamp line, Whimsical Birds by Doris Arndt!
 We have 8 large individual Whimsical Birds and 2 sets of mini Whimsical Birds too!  Stop by to check them out on the LCD website and keep an eye on this blog coz we'll be featuring these little cuties in an upcoming Whimsical Bird Showcase soon!  I also used the following on both ATCs:
 Spiderwebs background, the large and mini Cracked Tree and mini Cracked Grass and Sky from our Cracked Critter line.  The Old Type Writer Alphabet set in both lower and upper case to stamp the text and the yummy backgrounds were created with the fabulous Nuance Powders by Magenta now available in the Lost Coast Designs store

Before you go...did you know we are celebrating our first Blogiversary at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity and we're giving away BLOG CANDY?!  Click HERE to see how you can get in on the action and celebrate with us ;0)
