Cricut 360° Blog ... Spooky Blog Hop


Welcome to the Cricut 360° Blog Spooky Blog Hop. If you got here from Sonya's blog, then you're on the right track. If you've just popped in, you might want to start here ... this is where you'll find a list of all the blogs in our Spooky Halloween Blog Hop. And, of course we have some blog candy up for grabs ... a Freshly Picked Cricut cartridge. 


To be entered to win, visit all the blogs and collect the "key" words ... they'll reveal this week's challenge. Then make a challenge project and link it on the Cricut 360° Blog ... how fun is that!!

Now, here's my project:


My card is a 5.5" x 5.5" square. I love the colors in this ... the orange and green papers are from DCWV and the spider web paper is from Echo Park. Of course, it wouldn't be a proper Halloween card without the classic Halloween colors of purple and black, so I added those colors with a big, floppy seam binding bow. My cute little spider was cut using the Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge. I embossed her with several coats of UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel). Before she cooled completely, I bent her legs down so she looks like she's standing. And don't you just love those flirty lashes and googly eyes ... perfect for the My Pink Stamper sentiment.

Now it's time for you to hop on over to Heather's blog. I know she'll have something fabulous to share with you!! But, before you go ... here's a little blog candy I'm offering:



If you would like to be entered for a change to win, just leave a comment with a way to contact you. I will use Random.org to select a winner on Oct 19th and I will ship worldwide.

Finally, my key word is COLORS ... remember to link up your project for a chance to win!! 

Thanks for stopping by ...

Great card, Jo! Love the classic Halloween colors and that fabby bow! Wowzers on the spider! I didn't think UTEE would be pliable like that...I'm definitely going to have to try that!
