Happy Halloween!!!!




Good Morning my Crafty Friends!  Do you have big plans for this All Hallows Eve?  Will you be out with your little goblins and witches trick or treating?  Or will you be at home handing out the treats?  I normally go with my oldest grandson but tonight I'll be staying at home handing out treats!!!! 


To create my card today, I used "A Frightful Affair" Cricut Cartridge.  My Raven and Skull was cut at 4 inches and popped up with some foam tape.  My ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The background paper is from K & Company.  My cute sentiment is from My Craft Spot "Spooky Treats". 

Whatever your plans are tonight.....Be Safe!!!!
Until next time.......

A Pinque Peacock Project



Good Morning my Crafty Friends!!!!  Today is my day to post over at Pinque Peacock!  Being it's so close to Halloween I decided to do a Halloween Project to help me get ready.


I found this adorable frame in the Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge.  I followed the directions in the handbook.  I added some Pinque Peacock awesomeness and brought it to a whole new level.  I love, love, love the Halloween Pearl Stick Pin!  And of course the elegant florals!  You can find the products I used along with lots of other products HERE!  Be sure to check out the discount hut for all your crafty needs at a reasonable price!!!!

Krazy Crafting Crew - To "Die" for Cutting Files Blog Hop


Welcome to the Krazy Crafting Crew's October blog hop: To "Die" For. Many crafters today have die cutting machines and we thought it would be fun to let them show off some of the work they do with their machines and tell us which machine they own. I can guarantee, you will have a fun time looking at all their creations and if you're in the mood for a new die cutting machine, their work might sway you on which one to buy.

Our hostess for this hop is Jearise from Lorby's World and her blog is the place to start. She will have a give away going on so make sure you check out how to get signed up for that while you're visiting her.

Now let the fun begin...





Let me tell you a little about my project, it was created using my Cricut Expression 2 machine. My image was cut from the Happy Hauntings Cartridge at 3 inches using all the layers. I purchased my first Cricut (Cricut Expression) in 2009. I quickly fell in love with the ease of using it and was amazed with the projects I could make using it. I like being able to pop in a cartridge and cut an image without the use of my computer.

I do have to say I still have the Cricut Expression, the original one I purchased in 2009 and use it rather frequently. I also have a Cricut Imagine, the Cuttlebug and the Big Shot. Some time last year I won the Silhouette Portrait and am still trying to learn to use it. I use my Silhouette mostly for cutting vinyl. I love all my machines!!!!

Thank you for stopping by and now on to Anita and Bugs!

Welcome Fall!!!!

I don't know about you guys but I am soooo ready for cooler weather!  I was so excited to wake up to 83 degree weather rather than 98 I had to make a fall card.  LOL  Hopefully it'll stick around more than a day or two.  I know right excited for 80's but unless you live in South Louisiana you wouldn't understand.  LOL 


I am showcasing this GORGEOUS Darice "Fall Leaf Embossing Folder" that you can find in the Pinque Peacock shop!  When I saw this folder, I knew I had to have and didn't want to cover it with a lot, hence the small tree in the corner.  This pic does the embossing no justice.  My tree was cut from Create A Critter 2 Cricut Cartridge at 3 inches.  My beautiful bow was tied using the 3GJ bow maker with some polka dot ribbon I picked up at Wal-Mart.  And last but not least, the cute sentiment is from Cardz TV Thankful for You stamp set.  

I hope you enjoyed my super simple card today and don't forget to head over to Pinque Peacock to see all the awesome items in the shop!  Have a Great Day!!!!!
