Throwback Thursdays @ My Creative Time

Hello my crafty friends, it's been a while since I posted.  I've been busy with family time...I love spending my weekends exploring new places with the hubby and the last two kids left at home.  We spent Labor Day weekend at Atlantic City, shopping, enjoying the beach and a little conservative gambling.  Now we are all back into the swing of things with a new school year underway.  My daughter is a sophomore and my son finally started high school and is loving all the new challenges ahead but most of all he loves the school cafeteria.  Big change compared to his elementary school....according to him, it's like being in a fancy restaurant.  But anyway, enough of that....let's move on to my latest project.

I love visiting blogs and finding inspiration and being challenged. Over at My Creative Time, the latest challenge for Throwback Thursdays is to make a card using orange, green, purple and black and most importantly, it has to be Cricutless.  Yes, ladies, it's back to basics!!

 It doesn't have to be a Halloween card but with those colors, I couldn't help myself and it's exactly what I made.

I love all things Halloween.  Every year I buy new things, last year I was really good and didn't buy any new decorations but I did buy a ton of Halloween designer paper pads.  I have so much Halloween paper I don't know what to do with it.  Definitely will have to find more challenges and projects to work on!  Now back to my card...it measures 4.5 x 5.0. I used paper from a 6x6 paper pad from Michael's Recollection. The base is American Crafts black cardstock.  

Ribbon is from Michael's Celebrate It brand and the skull dimensional stickers are from Jolee's Boutique.  I believe it's a new collection this year. 
 
I used my new Martha Stewart drippy goo punch which I'm happy to say I bought at Michael's for 50% off the original price.  I've been dying for this punch and every time I tried to get it, it was sold out. So glad to finally have it!  The sentiment is from Ikadinkado All Hallow's Eve stamp set.

Well, my friends, this is all for now but I'll be back soon with another project.  Thanks for stopping by and make sure you visit Emma over at My Creative Time and join the fun.  You have until tomorrow evening! 
Sending you crafting wishes,
Jeanette
