Using Up Those Scraps!!!

Hey y'all! I have been busy at my desk for about 2 hours this evening working on some more simple cards for the 'Operation Write Home' Challenge. If you are not familiar with this challenge, it is where we make cards to send overseas to our troops so that they may in turn write to their loved ones. So tonight I decided to try to put a few last second ones together before I send these out. I was able to make all of these cards in about 2 hours. They are all really simple and all use scraps from my scrap bins. I used all scrap patterned paper, scrap cardstock, leftover ribbon/lace scraps, and leftover chipboard.

This first card is a Halloween card and I used the current Freebie at SVG Cuts! If you'd like to download this SVG for yourself, go HERE.

"Bump In The Night"

Supplies Used
Patterned Paper: Die Cuts With A View
Alphabet Stickers: American Traditional Designs, Momenta, Cosmo Cricket
Rhinestones: Queen & Co
Spider Button, Card Base: The Paper Studio
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression (Provo Craft)

SVG's: SVG Cuts

 I used a mixture of leftover alpha's on this card as well. I used Zap Dots to pop up the spiderweb corner flourish and Liquid Scrap Dots to attach my spider.
 This spider kinda freaked me out sitting on my desk waiting to be put on the card. I kept thinking 'I sure hope he doesn't sprout legs and scare the pants off of me!' LOL
