Welcome Back to the Patch!

I made this card for my mother-in-law.  She has been away for weeks caring for her brother and his wife.  She is getting home sick and hopes to be back by the end of the month.  There are 3 pumpkings of different sizes to represent the three of us.   She knows Halloween is my favorite holiday.  I love the bright colors!

It is also for the Cricut Circle Blogiversary. 

I was surprised when I realized that I used so many carts to make this!  I used Sophie for the purple mat, October 31 for the web, Hello Kitty Greetings for the spider, Pumpkin Carving and Doodlecharms for the pumpkins.  I cut and then used a glitter pen to outline the web and the mat.  It looks pretty cool IRL in that it adds more dimension and interest.  I used my Cuttlebug to add the texture to the pumpkins and then added some ink to the raised portion to give them even more detail. The pumpkin in the front is pop-dotted to raise it up, but you can not tell that here.

Many more carts used in my mission to use them all!

Thanks for stopping by!
