Eyes a plenty card using Cricut Boys will be Boys Cartridge.

It's Friday and due to some time change difficulties we were down one post this week.  I am going to make it up to you and allow every comment that has been posted thru Thursday at 12pm PST will be a double chance--so if you left 3 you will have a total of 6 plus today!
I love this card even through it is sort of creepy with all the eyes
The jar is from Boys will be Boys--it's a big jar!  I thought this was funny---the eyes are stickers I found at Michael's--I used two packs on this standard A2 card.
Here is a close up!  I used one of the older cuttlebug folders on this and some jagged edged scissors--can't rip paper to save my life for scissors work just fine!
I used some fuzzy ribbon and the bottom half is just orange textured cardstock.
Here is the inside--I used a stamp from Martha Stewart (found at Michael's in a set) and some green bing to add the fun, and just two bits of the same paper used on the front--what a fun thank you card for a host or hostess of the Halloween party you may be attending!
From Jolly Ol England--Cheers!

Mini Mummy Card using Cricut Mini Monsters and Pink Cricut Stamps

Happy Wednesday--I have a jammed packed day of work and an over night flight to London today--so you know what that means--another where in the world series--and even more blog candy from my travels!  
Today I have one of my all time fav cards that I have made--

I just love this little guy!  the eye brads are from the eyelet outlet--check them out on line!  I cut this little guy at 4.5" and the shadow put it over the edge of this A2 card by just a hair.  
This stamp is from the Pink Cricut 'A Haunting We Will Go' collection. I also used the same stamp set for my inside sentiment (see photo below).  The ribbon is a black corded ribbon, fuzzy, simple, and a great way to make the card more boyish.  
Here is a shot of the inside--No tricks here only a bright colorful treat of a message!  I placed the bottom pattern paper stamped direct onto the white card base and then added the bright green to the top.  The sentiment is actually two stamps but combined this way they look sort of like a printed ribbon!

Be sure to leave comments each day this week for the most chances to win--Where in the world will start Monday.  Make it a great one-

Princess Witch Card using Mini Monsters and Pink Cricut Clear Stamps.

Here is the partner card to yesterday--same pattern paper but this time with a little girl in mind.

The witch was cut at 3 1/2". I used blue brads for the eyes and a basic Grey brad for the belly button.  Instead of paper ribbons I used raffia.  The white paper was punched with the fiskers bracket edge punch and than stamped using a sentiment from the "a haunting we will go collection" from the Pink Cricut stamp collection.

I finished the inside with a strip of paper and a stamp from the CTMH 'Thriller" collection!  (one of the blog candies this week).   Simple but perfect for a girl who is not into scary halloween things.

Total side note--if you are intrested in making cards for our troops for the holidays--Michael's has all of their card packs (value pack cards) for 40% off.  This is an expensive way to make a lot of cards with out the extra cutting and folding--I say this as my brother is getting ready to deploy to the middle east.  I have a Challange coming in November  that will send some love to our troops. It is amazing how far any message from home can make it the best holiday possible since they have to be away from their family--
Make it a great one!

Trick or Treat Card using Cricut Pumpkin Carving Mini

Helloooooooo!  Good Morning--the week is of to a busy start and I have not a minute to spare.  I want to share a cute card and a trip up date so on to the card!
So I wanted to so something simple, fun, and colorful--not black and orange for Halloween!  To I cut an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of bright yellow card stock in half for two cards (guess what is coming later in the week). The ribbon is from my mom's stash (which is not half bad!!), The Cut is from Pumpkin Carving Mini Cart.  I cut the brown and then layered the orange under and trimmed to fit.  I found some Halloween colored brads at Michael's and these happen to be a tan with orange stripe.  I used pop dots to give the sentiment a lift!
Here is a close up where you can see I took a scrap and finished the inside of the card as well as a better look at the brad and ribbon (extreme closeup!)

Trip Update----
Had a great time and got some good picture of my nieces and nephew.  They grow so fast!  We have a teenager coming this year and it seems like a few months ago she was starting school--time really flies.
I spent time with my mom and niece at the CK scrapbook show (not a total bust but our show here is Dallas is WAY better).
Got to see and play with my Brother's kids for a bit as well--we packed as much as we could into the few days I was there.

So on to the blog candy---since I was not able to get online, I have two blog candies to give away.
