Lunchbox Ghost Cards

It's time to get spooky at Fantabulous Cricut!  We are challenging you to create a project with a ghost on it.  My ghosts look more cute than scary - but that's okay as they are to be tucked inside my favourite people's lunch boxes next Monday.
These cards were super quick and easy to put together.  I cut the ghost twice from Paper Doll Dress Up - and made a bit of a shadow using my Gypsy.  The ghost is popped - and I added some fun googly eyes.  I stamped the sentiment and little star using stamps from My Craft Spot - and punched them out with Stampin' Up punches.  The fun orange licorice baker's twine is also from My Craft Spot.  The finished cards are 3x3 - perfect to tuck inside a lunch box.
My Craft Spot
If you haven't heard, you'll want to know that My Craft Spot is having a stamp release party next week!!  There will be prizes each day (from Monday to Friday) at My Craft Spot and a blog hop on Saturday - with prizes at EACH stop along the way!  The design team is hard at work creating some wonderful projects to share with you all.  You won't want to miss the fun!  And if you add the release party button to your blog, you will double your chances of winning a prize!

I'm sorry I'm behind in visiting your blogs!  On Thursday, I had a 2-hour seminar to present... worth 50% of my final grade - so was busy preparing for that.  I survived and feel pretty good about things.  Then we spent the weekend at an Autism Family Respite Outdoor Centre as my son won a family spot at the camp.  It was just the rest and relaxation we all needed - and heaps of fun too!  I'm on reading break this week - and despite all the reading I have to do, I am hoping to get caught up on my blog visits.

I am entering my lunchbox ghost cards at Little Scrap Pieces, where Karen is having a "Copy Cat" challenge giveaway.   Hop on over to link up your own Halloween (or fall) project)!

I love this project!! I think I will try to modify it and use it for a classroom project at school. I could cut the squares and run images through my Xyron.
