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!
