Back to business... Here is the inspiration photo.

Ok- this was a really tough challenge for me - I just couldn't think of anything! The first subject I thought of was frogs. This is what I came up with:

All I can say about that is "YIKES"! I had such visions - I used the Cricut Design Studio to weld the Hoppy Birthday letters into the frame; I found frogs on the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge; I happen to have some Prima green flowers which were the perfect color; I had some neon green glass beads that I strung on some hemp. But when it was all said and done, I just didn't care much for this card.

Then I decided to focus on the Halloween theme. Here is my card:

I cut all of the shapes with the Cricut machine - the details for the cartridges are below. I am hooked on frames lately, so I used Design Studio to weld a jagged type of frame. I layered some of the images to give more of a dimensional effect.

To go along with this Halloween card, I made some little treats:

Aren't these little treats so fun! I made these using the Spooky Sweets stamp set from Papertrey Ink. The background stamp is sized for an Avery 8160 label, and an 8160 label wraps
around a Hershey nugget perfectly.

The clear boxes fit 8 nuggets and are available at Clear Dollar Stamps. I like them because you can see the decorated nuggets inside.

I trimmed the boxes with some coordinating ribbon and a label made using Nestabilities. the background stamp on the second label was a Stampin Up stamp I picked up on eBay.

Have fun with the challenge! I will be around to check as many of your submissions as I can!

Hi Deanne, your creations are fabulous, I love them all! Your welded frames are superb and I'm going to have to ask for some pointers from you if you don't mind if I ever manage to update the firmware for my design studio, I haven't been able to use it yet and I love how you welded the sentiment into the frame. Those little nugget wrappers are wonderful and your cards both so inspiring. Hope you have a great weekend. Chris x
