Bloggers Challenge
This weeks challenge was to use orange & black. I made this Criss Cross Card using Pumpkin Pie & Black Card Stock! I felt really sad that I don't have any Halloween Stampin' Up! Paper, so I had to use some Contraband Paper I had. I can't tell you the maker because I don't remember. I bought it so long ago. I only buy Stampin' Up! products now. I just love everything in our catalog! This Cris Cross Card was fun to make and I will have to make some Holiday Cards too!! I love Halloween and can't wait for my order to arrive. I am going to be making cards with each of my kids classes for Halloween!! I do this every year and they just love it. I spend an afternoon making 2 cards and I also bring treats like cookies and juice!! This will be my first year making cards with my son Myles, he's in 2nd grade this year. Last year I just brought treats for the kids. I think this year the 2nd graders are ready to make "EASY" cards!!

Cute Criss Cross Card! I have made cards with my nieces and nephews. They like it when we did a paperbag album and we did the theme summertime. They had a blast. I had everything cut and had diffent embellishment for them to use from. Thanks for a chace at this sweet candy.

Since my youngest is 30---I dont think I am still going to classes with him but there were days I thought he would never get past 6th grade.

I do craft with my 10 and under niece and nephew and I always have bins for them with glitter glue, paper, wood peices and that sort of stuff---and of course stamps. love to watch them create.

When my kids were young I always brought their classes carmel apples or rice krispie treats. I remember making ghosts out of fabric wrapped around tootsie roll pops and a big bow around their necks too. We made cards for Valentines Day, but I don't remember making them for Halloween. Have fun:)

Don't enter me in your drawing...I'm just following this post looking for ideas for my daughter's Kindergarten class.

I'm not sure how feasible this is, but if they can tear some white ghosts, you can use alphabet stamps to say "booooooo" or stamp their name or whatever!

Great job with the Criss Cross card, I still haven't tried making one.

Your site is very enchanting during this Halloween season. My suggestion for a great craft idea, especially for kids is making Jacob Ladder's books. They are easy and fun to do.
