My sister-in-law Mandy and I bought some flat ornaments as seen in the first image. These were much easier to put the rub-ons on. Snowmen are my favorite of course. I am just waiting to fill the 2 snowmen with some snow to give it a final touch. They will look so cute on my tree with all my other ornaments. I am SO excited to have ornaments I can decorate myself now. This bottom one was MESSY! I used alcohol ink and then shook in my silver glitter and let dry. I decided to do a stripe of silver glitter around the ornament which is NOT straight by all means, but I don't care. The snow flakes are rub-ons and I added a few silver ball rhinestones. I still can't believe I did this yet. I want to make a few more for my tree this year and it will not be long before it's that time of year. Happy Crafting!

I really do not like spiders but this was the first one that I could make that I kept giggling about. Too cute for a spider. Cute and creepy. I enjoyed trying out the new spider embossing folder that my sister-in-law Mandy bought me. All the monsters on the Mini Monsters cartridge all have silly eyes. One big and one small. This card was a perfect ending to my Sunday and I just have 4 more cards to make and then I am DONE with my Halloween cards. I still might make some decorations but we shall see. Enjoy!

I finally used my Stampin up From the Crypt stamp set. I also used my skull scroll embossing folder too. The skull is embossed and I chalked everything. I like this one but think it looks better in person. Hope you like anyway!
I just entered this in the cuttlebug spot challenge at http://thecuttlebugspot.blogspot.com/2010/10/totally-frightful.html. I have just seen some amazing cards there. So wonderful to see what others make.

A perfect Mummy for my Mummy. This was really hard to make after I cleaned my mat today. At least my mat is super sticky again. I can't wait to make more ghosts and goblins from this Happy Hauntings cartridge. Wish me luck and I hope you enjoy.

I hope this pumpkin is not too scary for my hubby's grandparents. I had made another pumpkin from my Mini Monsters cartridge and I was told it looks too much like a tomato. So, I cut out this one from the Happy Hauntings cartridge and I really liked this one better. I am so glad I got at least one card accomplished today. Hope you like.
I just entered this card in challenge #2 Pumpkins at http://cookingwithcricut.blogspot.com/2010/10/challenge-2-pumpkins.html. The design team made some awesome cards and layouts. Once again, it's great to see what others can do.

Well, I had to come home and make something cute from my mini monsters cartridge. I stamped the spider web in silver and embossed it. I stamped the spider on top and embossed it. Then of course I had to add my favorite stickles to the witch to give her some bling. Not too bad. Enjoy!

Surprise! I haven't showed anyone this card yet. I was keeping it a secret in case I wanted to give it to one of my friends. Now I entered this card on K Andews blog for the Halloween challenge. This is SO fun! This is nothing special but it's still cute. Hope you enjoy!

Third time is a charm. I am finally happy with the ring thank you card I am making for my friend Jen who is a jeweler. I embossed the ring in silver pigment ink. I used Martha Stewarts glue on the diamond and used ultra fine crystal glitter from Stampin Up. The D'vine Swirl cuttlebug embossing folder added the perfect background to this card. I really like the hot pink and black together. I stamped a "Thanks" on the inside in pixie pink ink from Stampin Up. I hope you all like.

Sandee brought in a few goodies today and I left ALL my stuff at home. I whipped up this card on my lunch break. I really had limited supplies but it sure turned out cute for not having much. I found some silver stickles in my purse and dotted Batty's eyes and used a silver gel pen to add some detail to Batty. I LOVE the paper I got out of the deal though. Thanks SO much Sandee. I hope you like Batty everyone.

This is the card I made last night for my mother-in-law. She loves owls and this one is too funny. It looks like the owl is saying, "Get this silly hat off my head". I LOVE this Happy Hauntings cartridge that I borrowed from my good friend Sandee. I can now get a few more cards made. I hope you enjoy this one!
