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.
