Halloween Costume Party Blog Hop with Sketches by Carly Using Cricut Artiste

Hi everyone!!  I just returned from vacation with my family in Wisconsin.  My husband and I flew to Madison and met my sister, brother-in-law, mother and brother there to celebrate my birthday.  We then vacationed in Wisconsin Dells and spent time in Madison and Milwaukee.  It was a nice break from the heat; but we had to scrape the thick frost from the windshield on Sunday before we could drive anywhere.  I had forgotten how cold it can be in the Midwest.  I am spoiled living in Southern California as we don't experience that cold weather here.

We are now spending time with my husbands brother and sister-in-law from Taiwan and his sister from Kansas.  They stayed here while we were on vacation to care for my father-in-law who is in a nursing home.  They leave Saturday to fly back to their homes.  It has been a very busy time.  We went to the Sequoia National Forest yesterday and had an extremely long day.  We have been going somewhere every day since Sept. 15.  I am in need of a break and so anxious to create something. 

I created this card before I left for vacation.  My crafting room is occupied; so I have to wait till the family leaves to create anything new.  I use a small section of the spare bedroom for my crafting; so I have to move things out when we have company. 

I am so excited to share my latest creation with you.  I had a lot of fun making this card for Sketches by Carly.  I was so happy for the chance to create something using The Digi Garden creations.  These are such adorable digi stamps.  We are having a  Costume Party Blog Hop at Sketches by Carly and hope you will take the time to hop over to see all the other wonderful creations.
 
If you are arriving from Ceal's blog; you are in the right place.  If not; please start at the beginning with Carly's blog.  See complete line-up below.

This is the first Halloween card I have ever created.  It was so much fun!!  I am going to send it to my grandchildren.  I think they will enjoy it.  I used my Cricut Artiste cartridge for all the Halloween items except the image; which is from The Digi Garden.  The paper I used was CTMH Clementine Paper Packet.  I love this paper.  So many fun patterns and great colors.

    3. Hi Desire, Thanks. It was nice to have a vacation; but I missed my crafting because family staying in that guest room. They just left today to fly back home. I have to move a lot of my stuff back in the room before I am ready to craft again. It was two full weeks without crafting. Hard to go that long. It feels like part of me was missing. :) Have a terrific weekend!! Hugs, Gloria
