GBG Challenge & Ghouls CASE

I finally took the time to photograph a card I made for Steph's challenge a few days ago. It's just under the wire as she'll have a new one tomorrow. The border is a freebie from Steph herself. Isn't it fabulous?! I made the pumpkins using SU Oval Punches, then added the new SU glass glitter for the mandatory bling.

The idea for my second card came from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts blog. The little ghosties are punched out from the SU Owl Punch with it's feet cut off. You can see the details on Dawn's blog. This card makes me smile. I love the way it turned out.

I am now pleased to say that I feel a little smarter than my Make The Cut. I've been working with it for a while, and having some success....but, I've wasted a lot of paper on my failures. The pumpkin is a cut file from MFT, and I used the MTC with my Cricut. I think I'm getting over that learning curve hump. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed.

Well, thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.
