DeNami Design's October Blog Hop: HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Blog hop! Blog hop!  What a treat!  Look at cards and crafts so neat!
Hoppity hop from blog to blog!  Leave your comments all along!
You might even win a prize!  Wouldn't that be a great surprise?

Gotta love Blog Hop Time, and I love this Happy Halloween theme!  I'm sure we'll see all sorts of cute & spooky projects! 

You should have hopped here from Emily Keaton's blog.  She's a blog STAR and super talented!  
If you need to start from the beginning, go to DeNami Design's blog.

As for my card, it requires a little bit of background info.  I have become obsessed with foxes. Like SERIOUSLY obsessed!  It all started back in June, I think.  My boyfriend and I were driving along a wooded road when I spotted a scrawny li'l fox trotting along the side of the road.  I immediately said, "Bryce, it's a fox!  Can I keep him?  Please?  PLEASE?  He's so cute and gingery!  I want him!"  Bryce very patiently told me no and explained that the cute li'l fox would eat our cats. However, ever since then I like to tease Bryce and ask for a fox.  "Can I get one NOW?"  "Well, once we have a fox..."  "I can have a fox, right?"  He always responds with an exasperated chuckle and a firm, "No, Amy.  We're not getting a fox."  Well a month or so ago, I discovered the viral video "The Fox" by Ylvis.  Watch it HERE.  It is my new obsession.  This song is HILARIOUS, and it fit so well with my fox obsession.  So, on a recent trip to IKEA, Bryce and I found fox stuffed animals, and guess what?  He bought me one.  My wonderful boyfriend finally bought me my very own fox:

So, needless to say, I'm still obsessed with foxes.  I recently was looking at a catalog for a fancy paper store, and BAM! They had a whole page of fox goodies:  

When looking at this page, I got inspired to make my blog hop card!  Look at those cute fox place cards!  Even better, check out that awesome fox mask!  Wait...a fox mask?!  Maybe a DeNami chickie could wear a fox mask!  BAM!  Idea fully formed!  So, I used an Imaginesce clear acrylic fox stamp and combined it with the large chickie stamp, and here is our little trick-or-treater:

I used several other DeNami stamps to create the Halloween themed background, and who doesn't love a little bit of May Arts ribbon across the middle of a card, am I right?  

Here's a close-up of my foxy chickie:

By the way....DeNami Design powers-that-be (I'm looking at you, Nami & Paulina), can you PLEASE have a fox or several foxes in your next release?  PLEASE?!

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my fun li'l fox/chick.  He sure makes me smile!

Next up on the hop?  Oh, boy, you are in for a treat:  Dana Seymour's blog.  Dana is my blogging idol.  I am so in awe of her.  She's flawless, in my mind.  She's gorgeous, funny, sweet, and I'm pretty sure she has more talent in her left pinky toe than most human beings have.  I am not exaggerating when I say she is a card-making GENIUS.  I adore her.  I'm amazed by her.  I want to BE her when I grow up.  She's a rock star.  Pure and simple.  Can't wait to see her creation! Let's hop on over, shall we?

Happy crafting!

Amy, The DeNami Diva
