well, thankfully I have recovered!

Halloween Projects

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut
on your project and if it's not obvious,
let us know what cartridge you used.

Here is my Project:

I created a Coffin Gift Box just in time for Halloween Week!!!

This box comes from the Life's A Party cartridge
and I decorated it up with some skeletons and spider/web
from Create A Critter 2.

I also added some fun enamel dots, tulle and thread.

The sentiment comes from a $1 stamp from Studio G.
I inked around the edges with Slate Ink from CTMH.

Now it's all ready to be full of some fun treats
and given away as a Halloween gift.

Happy Halloween!!!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
