Here A Skeleton, There A Skeleton, Everywhere A Skeleton - October 31st

This is a card I made for Halloween. The skeletons on the front are rubber stamped images. They are the same stamp in different colors. It is from the dollar spot at Michaels.
The inside cut is from the Cricut October 31st cartridge. I cut it in Core'dinations and then ran it through my Distressted Stripes folder in my Cuttlebug. Then I sanded it so the purple would show through. TFL!

I had an Orange Dream....and this is what I came up with....-MM, SFTN

This is a card I made today. I call it orange dream because of the colors. My dh days it makes him think of an orange creamsicle. The colors are much more vivid in person.
The card base is made from 2 sets of 2 scallop squares from Mini Monograms welded together on my Gypsy and then welded to each other. Once I cut them out on my Cricut, I just folded the piece in half and viola, you have a card! The cardstock is from Core'Dinations. It is new at my Joann's. It is a solid core line and I love it! It takes embossing great. I embossed it with the Sizzix flower vines embossing folder.
I added i-Rock gems to parts of the embossed paper. I added 2 layers of Ribbon to the side of the card. I also added Prima flowers to the front. They are sprayed with homemade Glitter Mist and a diamond brad in the middle.
On the bottom corner there is a butterfly from Straight From the Nest. It is in blue because my 13 year son said "Mom, that card needs some blue. It just won't be complete until you add blue to it." He wouldn't let me be until I added blue. So, for him there is blue! TFL!

This is for a design team entry for the Pink Cricut Design team. All the details for entering are at The owner of the blog will be holding a contest on Facebook on starting on August 12th and ending on August 14th. It will be a "like" contest. If you "like" my card, I would appreciate your vote!
