Thankful thursday Design Team

 Welcome !!  Today is our Design Team day over at Crazy About Cricut. This weeks challenge was to make something that was Halloween Decor. Well.. I had an awesome idea and.. had a GREAT helper... My HUBBY!!!  He is such a great sport!! 

So, what do you think???   Here's what we did. We got a wooden board from Michales and painted the edges black. Then decoupaged the paper on it. Since I had no more black black vinyl, I had to cut out on my Cricut. I then Mod Podged everything. I used a piece of ribbon and hot glued it to the back. Easy Peasy!!  The best part...  I crafted with my hubby!!!  Here's your challenge... go get YOUR loved one involved.   
Be sure to go visit Crazy About Cricut to see the rest of the amazing projects our Design did. 

Until next time....  
Happy Crafting!!!

 Hey ya'll.. Glad to have you. 
Today is Paper hoarder Design Team #1 Day!! I am so excited about this challenge as it was truly a challenge for most. I know that sometimes we, as crafters, find our comfort zone and stick within those limits and it is hard outside of them. This challenge took a few outside of those limits. I am so proud of this team and am excited to show you their work. The challenge was to make a shaped Halloween card.
