Ghoul Friends are Popping Up

Rather chilly here is southern CA this morning, only supposed to get to about 70' (F).......don't was 102' (F) last Sunday....LOL  The temp will climb back up into the 80's this next week, but for now I'm enjoying a little "autumn" weather, and thinking about pumpkins........I'm so ready for pumpkin pie.......are you?
With pumpkins on the brain, Halloween right around the corner and a new Cricut Explore Air, I gave making a pop-up card a try. This is the front of the card, the black is a very glossy paper and the pumpkin was cut out of an orange glitter paper.
It opens up to this........lots of die cuts......and so much fun.

A few close ups.
I am entering this in these challenges:

Hope you take the time to visit these blogs and see all the inspiration that is out there.  I know there are many more blogs with challenges this card will fit into.......but I can't be here all day......LOL
Please let me know you came by.

  1. Well, my dear friend, I'm completely impressed. This is wonderful, and I "assume" you bought a new die cutter. The pop-up is a favorite of mine, but I have to make mine by hand. Yours looks wonderful, and the colors SCREAM Halloween.

    BTW, I'm ready for pumpkin pie, too. I'd even take a pumpkin cake or pumpkin bread. Yep, I've got pumpkin on the brain, I guess.

  2. WOW what a creative, scenic project Krisha! Temperatures here in NE Ohio have plunged down into the 40s this week and we actually had snowflakes flying around yesterday ... Brrr way to early for that stuff! LOL! Thanks so much for playing in our ‘GHOUL FRIENDS’ challenge at Dies R Us! Please come back again soon!
