Cricut Trick or Treat Spooky Beware Card

This card was made using the new Cricut Lite Trick or Treat cartridge, now available at cricut.com and at Walmart (at stores and online).  I love this fun, whimsical cartridge!  Check out all the fun things on it below:
I made this shaped card in the Cricut Craft Room (see HERE for more details on the Cricut Craft Room) and it will fit nicely in a 5x5 envelope.  I created two purple sections, flipped one of them and then welded it to the original to create the card.  It's a nice size to use for a card and it would make a really cute invitation to a Halloween party.
Below I used a stamp from JoysLife's Halloween Puns set (click HERE for more details).


Be sure and check out Joy's and Melanie's personal blogs for more creative goodness at Obsessed with Scrapbooking and Courtney Lane Designs!


Don't forget we are giving away a Cricut Pirates and Mermaid Lite Cartridge this week - see how cute this is!




How can you win?

1) Leave a comment below: What's your favorite way to eat pumpkin!?  I just made some delicious low carb pumpkin bars that were fabulous (recipe below).  Almond flour is cheapest in the big bins at Whole Foods or Sprouts.
2) Subscribe or follow the blog!

That's it!

Love the card... great choice of colors with it.
Your pumpkin bars sound a lot like a pumpkin cake roll receipe an old friend gave me years ago, and made me swear to never give out her "secret receipe"... since she passed on, I've seen it in many magazines... I have to chuckle, "secret receipe" huh!!! She was such a dear. But now my family requests it every Thanksgiving and Christmas!!!
