I was going to make a layout for today, but never ended up with any time to do it, so finding this card was totally great!<br /><br />This card is made using the exact same cartridge that Joy used yesterday <a href="http://www.cricut.com/shop/#0/73/998/2/Cricut/Cricut%20Lite%20Bloom%20Cartridge"><b style="color: #e06666;">Bloom lite cartridge</b></a>.

We have put many hours, blood, sweat, and tears into this blog. Many hours were spent in the craft room and not with our families to make this blog happen.<br /><br />This blog has been a source of joy and pride for us, and while we are sad to let it go, we feel the time has come. We both have other blogs as well (<a href="http://www.obsessedwithscrapbooking.com/"><span style="color: #45818e;"><b>http://www.obsessedwithscrapbooking.com/&nbsp; </b></span></a>and <a href="http://courtney-lane.blogspot.com/"><span style="color: #45818e;"><b>http://courtney-lane.blogspot.com/</b></span></a>and have struggled in recent months to keep all of the balls we have been juggling in the air. Remember, there are only the two of us and posting as much as we do on three blogs has exhausted us. We want to give you all the quality content you deserve and feel stretched too thin to do so with three blogs in our stead. Having to maintain only one blog each will allow us to put more time into the crafts themselves thus giving you a greater blog following experience. <br /><br />Our other blogs will continue though, and we hope that you all come and visit us daily. We will continue giveaways and we will both have great projects to share and inspire you. Also, you can always count on the latest in crafting news from Joy as she has her ear to the ground in the crafting world. Our connection to Provo Craft is still intact and we will continue to show you the latest and greatest from them. <br /><br />Know that we have enjoyed your comments and love that you have sent our way throughout the years. You are the reason we have been able to continue this wild ride for so long. For your loyalty and encouragement, we are truly grateful!<br /><br />As I said before, this is not goodbye completely as we will be posting often if not daily on the other two blogs. If you have not had a chance to sign up to follow our other blogs below are the links to do so.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.obsessedwithscrapbooking.com/"><span style="font-size: large;"><span style="color: #45818e;"><b>Obsessed with Scrapbooking (Joy<span style="font-size: large;">'</span>s blog)</b></span></span></a><br /><a href="http://courtney-lane.blogspot.com/"><span style="color: #45818e;"><b><span style="font-size: large;">Courtney Lane Designs </span></b></span></a><span style="color: #45818e;"><b><span style="font-size: large;">(Melanie's blog)</span></b></span><br /><br />These blogs will be predominately Cricut focused blogs just like you have come to expect from Everyday Cricut. You will still be able to get your AMAZING 3D/gift bag fix from Joy as well as see beautiful cards from Melanie. We will both also now have time for layouts and more home decor projects. <br /><br />Our winner of the Space Party cartridge is LST in Colorado!<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-wNZfrSyVDBw/UJEbW7JSnEI/AAAAAAAALyM/IwbDZZJ7k-I/s1600/Screen+shot+2012-10-31+at+7.36.08+AM.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="82" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-wNZfrSyVDBw/UJEbW7JSnEI/AAAAAAAALyM/IwbDZZJ7k-I/s400/Screen+shot+2012-10-31+at+7.36.08+AM.png" width="400" /></a></div>Please email us at cricutchristmas@gmail.com, LST in Colorado, with your name, address and what you won within two weeks to claim your prize.<br /><br />Joy and Melanie<br /><br />Be sure and check out Joy's and Melanie's personal blogs for more creative goodness at <a href="http://www.obsessedwithscrapbooking.com/">Obsessed with Scrapbooking</a> and <a href="http://www.courtney-lane.blogspot.com/">Courtney Lane Designs!</a> Click <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dsu-TCoX7e4">HERE</a> to learn how to leave comments. <br />Click <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7ZhJo8zbc8">HERE</a> to learn how to find OVER 600 project ideas on this site!

The&nbsp;<a href="http://www.avantlink.com/click.php?tt=ml&amp;ti=233025&amp;pw=143971" target="_blank">Cricut Chip Decor&nbsp;cartridge</a> was made specifically for cutting out papers to adhere to the chipboard letters available at Hobby Lobby. &nbsp;I used the Teresa Collins Halloween paper pack I got at Hobby Lobby at the same time and the <a href="http://www.avantlink.com/click.php?tt=ml&amp;ti=233025&amp;pw=143971" target="_blank">Cricut Teresa Collins Chic and Scary cartridge</a>. &nbsp;It's been a Teresa Collins couple of weeks for me - I just LOVE her designs!<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both;

text-align: left;">The paper letters were cut at 8" and fit nicely on the chipboard letters. &nbsp;I inked the edges of the paper and the edges of the letters. &nbsp;I used ink for the chipboard letters since I couldn't find my black paint. &nbsp;It worked just fine but was a bit messy. &nbsp;I had to use a black sharpie to get into the corner tight spaces on the B, but that worked also.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-rs8OAvYR8Ao/UHYfMgJZ27I/AAAAAAAALc0/59hGW_5lU7o/s1600/EverydayCricutBooSign2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="300" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-rs8OAvYR8Ao/UHYfMgJZ27I/AAAAAAAALc0/59hGW_5lU7o/s400/EverydayCricutBooSign2.jpg" width="400" /></a></div>Then, I decided to add just a bit of interest to the letters with some of the images from the <a href="http://www.avantlink.com/click.php?tt=ml&amp;ti=233025&amp;pw=143971" target="_blank">Cricut Teresa Collins Chic and Scary cartridge</a>. &nbsp;I welded one of the spiders to the web on the cartridge and cut that out at 7-1/4" and adhered it. &nbsp;I also cut the pumpkin twice at 2-1/2"- one time with the mouth and eyes using orange glitter paper and then I used the "hide selected contour" feature on the Cricut Craft Room to make a solid layer behind the pumpkin.<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both;

text-align: left;">Finally, I loved the ominous raven and wondered how to adhere him to the "O". &nbsp;The easiest thing to do was use of the <a href="http://joytracey.ctmh.com/retail/Products.aspx?CatalogID=35" target="_blank">Close To My Heart Flip Flap plastic sleeves</a>, tuck the raven into it and then use tape to adhere it to the back of the "O". &nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;
