More Halloween Spooks

Oh how I LOVE Halloween!!! I have been making at least 2 cards everyday...I'm so blessed to have this time in my craft room so soon after hubby's surgery. He's been so busy watching games on tv and all the fear fest movies! So he gives me a little break!

I wanted to share with you two cards I made today. The first one I used the CUTEST little bat from DZ Doodles called Batty Characters that is in the store right now for purchase! I cut out the spider web border with my cricut isn't it so cute? I got the SVG file from Scrapcation Getaway >>> HERE! She has LOTS of cool free SVG's go on and check her out!

Hello! I didn't get a chance to get my DZ Doodles challenge card today (maybe tomorrow) but, I did want to come on really quick before dinner and post some cards I made before hubby's surgery. My bestest friend Mary Jane gave me the NEW adorable & cute 2 step owl punch from Stampin Up and I just had to fit sometime in before surgery to use it! The little owl is just TOO DARN CUTE!!! I made 3 cards!

The first one was hubby's get well card, the pink one was for Mary Jane as a little gifty and the 3rd was the first get well I made for hubby but then looked to much like 4th of July haha!

I can't believe that this is my first post since July 1st! How time gets away from us. So many things have happened all summer long in my life..some good and some bad. But I'm hoping things stay going everyone keep me and my family in your thoughts and prayers! My hubby will be getting a total elbow replacement in less then 2 weeks so I'm hoping this will be the last of my down time so I can be back here and in my craft room making cards and scrapbooking again! I have made a few in between this all but nothing like normal for me! So after the 15th and time to get home from the hospital and get him settled in I'll BE BACK to attack (keeping my fingers crossed).

I wanted to come on and share a card I was able to squeeze in my crazy life this last week with you all...the image is a NEW and a FREEBIE NOW from DZ Doodles called Pumpkin Picking Scarecrow...isn't he just the CUTIEST! I love him!!! For a limited time you can get him for FREE over at Paper Craft Planet and/or SNR Card Universe.
