Our Christmas Card

This year we decided to do something related to Halloween for our holiday card this year since this was our big year for Halloween.

We decided to make another tombstone with the Scrooge epitaph. We put it in the yard next to a Grim Reaper to set the scene from A Christmas Carol where Scrooge sees his tombstone as shown to him from the Ghost of Christmas future who looks like death.

It took a few days to make the tombstone, cold, rainy weather is not the perfect conditions for drying paint. I then set it up outside with rebar stakes and then hauled out a reaper to set beside him. I used some cobwebs and got some branches and leaves from the yard and made the tombstone look forgotten.

I took a BUNCH of pictures of it. Chris suggested using fog so I got the fog machine out and blasted it with fog and to a BUNCH more pictures. Chris then did her magic in Photoshop, I suggested the phrase "Bah Humbug! Halloween is over." and we had our card.
