Boo! card made using Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art cartridge.

Hello, best blog followers in the blogosphere! I am not dead....at least not yet. I have just been having a rough August! I am so glad school starts next week for my little one. It will give me a little bit of a mental break from all the craziness!

Today I have a card that I made using the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art cartridge. This cartridge is loads of fun and has some really cute cuts. I am not sure when I would actually send a Halloween card, but they are fun to make anyway. Then again you could send it as a thank you....



'Boo!' is cut at 1 1/2" and the cat and moon combo were cut at 3". The paper is from the new SEI Halloween themed line called 'Spooks'. Couldn't love this line anymore if I tried!







Have a wonderful Tuesday and don't forget that this week is Hello Thursday! I have been slaving away all day in my craft room to have projects to show. It's gonna be a fun day!

I love the Boo! Great card, thanks for sharing with us.

Melissa said...

I knew things had to be going crazy for you since you had been MIA! Hope things slow down a bit once the kids head back to school for you!

Great card! Love how the cat turned out (and I don't even like cats! lol).

Good to see you back Mel!

Halloween was my mom's favorite holiday. I love to make the cards and I send one to each of my sons but that is about it. I'll bet a nursing home would love to get them.
I love your card. That boo is cool.

GiGi said...

Glad to see you back Mel! I've missed you! Cute card.

Ohhh Snap said...

Welcome back :D. Don't you love that commercial with the Dad using a cart like a scoother with 2 glum childern following him while "Most Wonderful Time of the Year plays"? My most favorite though is Alice Cooper school shopping with his daughter debating the lyrics of his "Schools Out" song.

I love this card! I love papermaking with the cake carts, and I don't have a cake lol. So of the employees at Joann's didn't know you could swap 'em. I said a cart is a cart is a cart lol.

Looking forward to Hello Thursday :D.

Karen said...

What a cute card. You could use them with the special Halloween treats that you have set aside for special Trick or Treaters, like nieces and nephews, etc.

Joyce L. said...

As someone who has never EVER followed a blog before, I realized how addicted I've become (in a quick 2 month timespan) to your daily postings during your short leave of absence!! :) Glad you are back!

I love Halloween - brings back memories of my childhood with cider, homemade donuts and all the neighborhood outside visiting! I can't wait to make my cards this year! Thanks for the cute idea!

Great card!

Helen said...

This is cute! I love to make Halloween cards too, but am not sure I actually give them away :-)

love2create said...

Super cute card! And I love Halloweeen! I make mini cards to go with the treat bags for the kids who live close to us. They love having a special bag that's made especially for them! I also send my mom a halloween card every year. It's just another day to say hi, but in a special way!

Isabel Z said...

Here's to a calmer September:-)

Love your card!

I really don't know which I like more: the textured cat, the dripping Boo, or the lettering of Creepy Halloween!

Lainey said...

Michele said...

Love the paper you used on Boo. At first glance it looks like a bloodshot eye.

Carrie said...

As always, you do such a nice job. I have to admit... I'm not a huge fan of scary images, but my grandmother always sent us a halloween card in the mail with $1 growing up, so the card reminded me of that. :) I hope your August becomes less crazy, I can definitely sympathize.

pcrusberg said...

Oh, I do love that cat! Great font too. Thanks!

Melanie,

Love your Halloween card! I actually love to send Halloween cards to my parents, siblings (well, now it's more for the nieces & nephews), friends...I am always looking for excuses to let those I care about know it! ;)

That font is amazing!!! :) I like the MS Border Punch that's similar, but I like the letters even more!

Thanks so much for sharing,

Jennifer
