Halloween Cards and Fun

Well, I wish my camera knew how to take pictures, lol. I tried twice and still can't get it. I need to take a photography course......hmmmmm, that's a thought for another year.
I have been playing in my craft room late at night , as my work schedule has left me drained. I was sitting there last night and my four year old wanted to scrapbook with me (he loves the ink :)) So...all Close to My Heart except the glitter......

My cricut pumpkin....born from a CTMH bulletin board post and altered a bit. If I can find where I put the link, I will add it here.
See the witch in the back? She is scared of the camera and fades out on me. This is the best photo so far. She is a resist technique with Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder (it's two toned :)) and black ink sponged over the August SOTM from Close to My Heart. I used the Mischief paper pack, also CTMH. I will try to get a better pic' for you to see her. She's a spooky one, lol

Along the edge Sympathy

Sadly, you will be seeing a few sympathy cards as I make them up for the people that losing family (and pets :().
This card was inspired by the fact that I didn't really know where to start, so threw a bunch of sentiments on the acrylic block while I was thinking, and AH HA!
Technique Junkies to the rescue :) This is the along the edge technique from the summer issue, with a cricut flower from the Art Philosophy cartridge from Close to My Heart. You too can own it, just click the link in my sidebar and shop with me :)

It really is that simple. The stamps are Close to My Heart, cardstock from the dollar store and the flower is out of a Roxie scrap (ctmh) Ink as always is ctmh, it's all I have, lol.
