Halloween card

I started this blog, then it seems that I dropped off the face of the earth. Really I just got swamped with family visiting, Thanksgiving, a cousin's wedding and life in general. I also have to admit that I am not a very organized person, so trying to consistently get things posted here is going to be a major challenge for me. I have still been making cards, but haven't been able to take a good picture so I can post them. I played around with camera and lamp tonight and got this one done, and will try to post the others soon. This one isn't for any challenge, just one that I made up for a friend.
I used my favourite Simply Betty Stamp Devil Rio, paper by Creative Imaginations and the dies are all cut with my Slice (Spellbound cartridge) and Cricut (October 31st cartridge).

Trick or Treat

So, it's the Second Day of Halloween at Simply Betty Challenges and this time it was to include 2 Trick or Treaters. 
For this one I used my Stampin Up 'Tableau of Terror' stamp for the trick or treaters,  October 31st Cricut cartridge for the tree, sign and pumpkins. Papers by Reminisce and Graphic 45, and a little black Glitter Ritz to help the tree 'pop'.
I'm having so much fun with this Halloween challenge, and am totally blown away with the other entries. I look forward to seeing everyone's projects for the Third Day.

Fright Night

Call me crazy...my very first blog entry is also for my very first challenge participation....which happens to be the Simply Betty Stamps 12 Days of Halloween. What was I thinking taking it on??? Well, it's my love of Halloween that lured me into it...that and my BFF ;o)  She encouraged me to make a blog to share my cards, and so here goes.....
On the first day of Halloween my goul gave to me...one smiling skellington head. The challenge is to incorporate one or more skeletons in your project.  I decided to break-in my new Cricut cartridge called October 31st for this, and wow! I loved using it! The skeleton, window/shutters and spider & web were all cut with it. The background is made with the Tim Holtz Bricked embossing folder, then distressed. And the ghosts and cat are cut from scrap halloween ribbon I had.

Thanks for looking.
