Cricut Halloween

Good morning, the weather is beautiful here today but the question is will it last into the weekend? Probably not is the usual not. Why does that happen we have lovely weather Monday to Friday but come the weekend when most people can get out we have dreadful weather.

Today I bring you the first of three Cricut only projects I have made although I did use stamps for the 'Boo' and the ghost face.
The challenge over at Bitten By The Bug 2 is to use Tags, Bags, Boxes & More to create a 3d project, I do not have this cart so made my own box instead.

I made this coffin treat box and added the little ghost element for a bit of fun and then stamped 'Boo' on the inside, the stamps I used for this I have had since I began crafting and they were still sealed, that is shameful isn't it! I also stamped the ghost's face using my Peachy Keen stamps. The orange trim is something else I have had forever, I picked it up in a charity shop thinking it would come in handy for Halloween but I think this is the first time I have used it.

Card Stock - Bazzill
Stamps - See D's 'Dot to Dot 50504' & Peachy Keen 'Funshine Faces PK-944'
Embossing Ink - Tim Holtz
Embossing Powder - Unknown
Cricut - Expression
Orange Ribbon - Charity Shop

Challenges I would like to enter this into:-
Bitten By The Bug 2 - TBBM 3d Item
Creative Stamp Friends - Anything But A Card
Use It Tuesdays - Unused Stamps
Cardz TV - Things That Go Bump In The Night
Sketchy Colours - Orange, White & Black
