Get Well Card and Cuttlebug Challenge # 5

Happy Halloween Eve!! Hope you all are ready for a great weekend! I have 2 crops to go to this weekend, so I am as happy as can be. I have been working on a few things this evening that I thought I'd share. This first card is for a friend on SAS named Kelly. Her FIL had surgery today and I wanted to send them a little card. Please keep their family in your prayers. This card was really easy. I used the gate fold cards that Ashley had made me. I ran the flaps through the Cuttlebug using Swiss Dots. Then I had bought this "Get Well Soon" index card at the sb store. So I just adhered it to the front. Here it is...excuse the carpet...LOL!

Then next, I completed 2 cards actually for this weeks Cuttlebug Challenges. I am just enjoying that blog soooo much! I highly recommend it to all of you Cuttlebug lovers. Each week they give us another great idea to use. They even had a cuttlebug camp this past weekend with all sorts of neat projects. I did not get to participate this time, but I want to do some of the projects. Some awesome stuff being done! Anyways, this weeks challenge was to use your cuttlebug on foil/metallic paper. Well, I did not have any of that, so I used the faux kind! LOL. I simple took some household kitchen aluminum foil and adhered it to basic cardstock with a craft glue stick. Let it dry and then run it through the cuttlebug and Voila'! You are done! So easy and so cost efficient!! Here is the first card I did. I used the Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy folder and cut out a scalloped oval with it.

Then I decided to make Brandon (my husband) a little Halloween card for tomorrow. A really simple one, not too much to it. I ran the faux foil paper through the Cuttlebug using the Spider web folder. I then ran a piece of black cardstock through with the Haunted House folder, cut it out, and adhered it down. Again, really simple.

Thanks for looking! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and a Happy Halloween!!!!
