I love a challenge, it keeps me focused.  It also keeps me distracted from thinking about school starting next week, and how much I will miss my three kids.  How empty the house will be, how quiet...but not peaceful quiet, creepy quiet!  So I challenged myself to make a card for Halloween using no Halloween paper, stamps, or accessories. For years I have been a mostly collecting (hoarding, lol) scrapbook supplies, but have never made any cards before.    I made this card using a Christmas stamp, only because of the versatility of the CTMH clear acrylix stamps!  This is what I came up with.

Supplies used for card:
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
Love Life stamp set D1482
Art Philosophy stamp set D1498 (only avail. with AP bundle) 
Chocolate Alphabet Small D1296
CTMH CS in Honey, Sunset, Gypsy & Pear
CTMH buttons, ribbon and sparkles

Spider and web:
Sparkles Z1104
Opaques Z1335
Glamour Lowercase Alphabet D1522

Thanks for stopping by!

  6. So how do you give them that compelling reason? By treating this question as an opportunity for your sales pitch. By thinking about what it is that the interviewer wants in a candidate and what it is that they need to hear.

    if you want more just look here "positive recruiter"

  7. This sample answer addresses the company’s brand and history, but also demonstrates that the candidate took the time to do some additional research through his network (read on for some tips on how to research companies before you interview). The answer goes on to emphasize the candidate’s interest in working hard and developing on the job.
