Simple Halloween card...

I've been busy trying to get all of my Halloween cards made, as we leave on an RV trip in mid-September and don't return until the end of October. That means I'll need to mail them from the road.

Here is a simple card I designed in the Silhouette software and cut out with my Cameo.

I found some clipart of a pumpkin face and traced it. Then I used the text tool to spell SPOOKY. I cut some small portions off the top of each "O" and off the underside of the "P." That way the centers would remain attached and I wouldn't have to try to adhere them to the glitter cardstock underneath.

I cut the card front the same size and color (gray) as the card base and then popped it up on foam tape. The glitter cardstock behind "SPOOKY" is a little greener than the photo shows, so it's a nice contrast to the orange glitter cardstock behind the pumpkin face.

This is one of those cards that doesn't look so hot in a photograph, but I actually really liked it IRL.

My inside sentiment is computer-generated. Super simple!

I'm entering this card into the CardzTV Challenge #61 Anything Goes.

I spent today cleaning house, washing my car and repairing three defroster grid lines in the back window of my car. Did you know you can repair them yourself?

I got a little kit at an auto parts store. It was actually really easy to do, using conductive paint. Of course, I don't know if it actually works yet--we've got temps in the 80s, so nothing to defrost. I'll be excited if they do work, though. The car dealership told me I'd have to replace the back window to fix the problem. Obviously, I didn't buy that line!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Heee, fab fun card Cheryl, love the sparkly spooky face!
Sounds like you've had a busy day, go you fixing your window yourself. Would love to see your smiling face when you see it working!

What a fun card - great for that Halloween Boo. You are going to be on a nice road trip. And you find out the most useful things from fellow stampers, no I didn't know you could replace defroster strips. Will keep that in mind.
