Fun Fall Creations




This card is actual a coloring sheet that I printed out (coloring page can be found here). I printed it out and shrunk it down some and traced it onto a piece of folded cardstock it folds at the hand and wing of the bat on the left. Then I printed it out onto the various colors of cardstock and kept cutting and layering. The bats are pop dotted to give them some dimension. The one card is for a swap partner and the other is for our niece Summer.






I am part of a secret Boo Friend swap. It works the same way as a Secret Santa Swap but this one is a Halloween theme. We had to make several handmade items and also buy some items. One of the items we had to make is a Fall recipe card. Those who know me know I don't know the first thing about cooking or baking. But thankfully there is the Internet and I was able to pull this recipe from here. The pumpkin is from the Cricut Dreams Come True cartridge. And no don't expect to see anymore recipe pages, not my thing, put I'm pleased with the way it turned out.

Cute ghosts and great pumpkin recipe card. I can tell it's the Cinderella pumpkin, but I wouldn't have known that if you didn't mention it. Whoever your swap partner is will love it.
