Halloween Preview

so I have been working 6 long days a week
and I kept thinking
of ways to get my Halloween cards done
it's my second most favorite time to make and give cards
this is what I came up with
started with Create a Critter 2 hand book and the Cricut Craft room
I sized everything at three inches
took each color and create a page for that color
for instance I made an orange page in the craft room and took all the items from
the handbook that would be orange and put them on that page
I did this with my laptop while laying on the couch watching TV after dinner
 always good when you can multi task
next I would put a orange sheet of paper on the cutting mat and cut everything out
then the black, purple, green etc
I did this in the morning while getting breakfast ready again the whole multi task thing
from there I put all the cuts together again at night while watching TV
next came  the sentiment stamped them all out
used various punches some distress inks
a few leftover items from last year  
Here is what I have so far
Now if I can manage to turn all of this into a few cards I will be a
very Happy girl....
When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.
