Welcome to Boo-ville!

Happy Friday!  Do you have big Crafty Plans for the weekend?  I am hoping to finish cleaning my craft room and get in some much needed craft time!!!!!  I finally used my "A Frightful Affair" cricut cartridge that I picked up for a really good price over at Erica's Craft Room Store.  I've been having it since it was released but never got around to playing with it.  Do you guys do that buy something and then don't use it for a really long time?  I believe I have cartridges that I purchased years ago and still haven't used.  I am beginning to think I am a craft hoarder! LOL  In fact while making my card, I remembered that I purchased some mini black buttons while shopping at Hobby Lobby with my enabler (my Mom) and now I have no clue where they are!  Any who, enough about me.....here is my cute and simple Halloween Card:


Aren't these pumpkins the cutest scariest pumpkins you have ever seen.  LOL  My card is a typical A2 sized card, for those of you who don't know what that means, it's a 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 base.  My green layer is cut at  5 1/4 X 4 inches and my cute background paper was cut at 5 X 3 3/4.  All of my paper used today is from my scrap box.  My fence was cut at 2 1/2 inches I didn't cut the bottom piece for the fence, rather I used some brown ink to make it look like dirt.  Then I took my Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink and lightly inked up the rest of the fence.  I wanted some of the white to still show through.  My pumpkins were cut at 2 inches the red was cut without shit and the black was cut with shift using my trusty Cricut Expression.  How many of you purchased all the new and improved Cricut machines but find yourself going back to the first one you owned!  Yep, me too!  I own the E, E2 and Imagine but tend to use the E mostly......see hoarder!  Sorry I tend to digress a bit.  My sentiment is from Cardz TV with Mary's "Spooky Sayings" this is from last Halloween but I still love the set! 

Oh, before I forget, I am only about 15 followers away from 300 and would love to give away my goodies!  So if you are new to my blog or haven't entered my giveaway, CLICK HERE to do so!
