Trick or Treat

Made one card this weekend, last night.
Felt like if I didn't I might lose my groove.
Took only a half hour which was good because it was still quite warm in the crafty room.
I think the heat made me more efficient.

Used my new Halloween stamps from Stampin' Up!
Love that little spider, although I find that the 1 inch circle punch is just slightly too big and that drives me a little batty.
Well, it does.
The lil spidey is on the inside of the card through the circle punched window.

I also now know that I am wheel challenge.
I had such a hard time getting that darn thing straight.
I know, I know...Get the guide thingy.
Just don't want to buy a glorified ruler, just don't.
I'm cheap like that.
Tried it with a regular ruler, didn't really work, got ink on the ruler too.
Anyone got a secret method?
Maybe you could share it with the wheely challenged, I am sure I am not the only one.

Oh...Too early for Halloween?

Love the card! Love that set! Look closely, you'll see that the bat on the wheel matches the bat in the set. Same with the cat! LOVE it!

What a great card, Simone! I have no advice on the wheels, I haven't purchased any for fear I will jack them up!

I'm re-commenting because my first one SOUNDED bad, but wasn't meant to be uncomplimentary - I just hit publish too quickly! What I meant to say was:

This card is super cute! It sure doesn't look like you had wheel troubles. :)
