Trick or Treat Tilda, Jack O'Lantern...Happy Halloween!!!!

I want to wish all my crafty friends, out there in the blogosphere, a very Happy Halloween!!!
My Husband, Chris, is a very talented artist and every year for as long as we have been together, we have always had a very creatively carved Jack O'Lanterns!!! If I remember correctly, our very first Halloween together (over 15 years ago) we had a, Calvin and Hobbs Jack O'Lantern and some other pumpkins that were a little more scary!!!
Then when we had kids, we had more kid friendly pumpkins!!! Our pumpkin is always very popular with all the kids on Halloween night. Many people ask how Chris carved the pumpkin and if he used a stencil (no) or where we bought it! They are always very impressed and very surprised when we tell them that he just draws a rough sketch on the pumpkin and then starts carving with an paring knife! Chris has carved pumpkins with various cartoon & Disney characters, like, The Berenstain Bears, Jasmine and The Genie and Tinkerbell and Captain Hook.
Well, this year I asked for a special pumpkin, just for me, and this is what Chris made for me....Tilda, all dressed up for Halloween, I just love it!!! I think Trick or Treat Tilda looks fabulous!!!!

Well, I hope you have a fun and safe time tonight trick or treating!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
Here are other pics of some of the pumpkins Chris has carved....Tinkerbell and Captain Hook!!!

He is very talented! You better lock your craftroom so that he doesn't start to secretly compete with you making cards ;-)) Happy Halloween - Anki

Fantastic pumpkins, does your hubby have unlimited talents or what? Great around the home, fab with the kids and now a talented artist to boot!!
You should ask him to create some sketches of cute whimsical characters and get them made into rubber stamps to sell, you'd make a fortune!!!
I'll be emailing you in a little while, have a great day!!
