Fun Christmas tree card and Halloween pics

Hey gals,

Today I made a really fun Christmas card.  It was a great stash buster too.  To make the layers of the tree, I grabbed some scraps and used a Martha Stewart border punch.  For the "ornaments", I used left over rhinestones.  The sentiment is a left over sticker.   The star is chipboard that I colored with gold alcohol ink.

I am entering my card for the following challenges:

Annabelle Stamps - Card sketch 
Wee Memories - Free for all
The Paper Players - Anything Goes
2 Sisters Challenge Blog - No Designer paper

Yesterday was so much fun.  The kids had loved going trick or treating.  Lara was hilarious.  She kept trying to take a handful of candy at each house.  She almost never eats candy, so she was ready to take as much as she could get, lol.

My babes

My niece and nephew

Have great afternoon!

I already knew that you had some cute kids-your niece and nephew are adorable! Wish we had some young ones around--knock on wood--I'm not ready to be a grandmother (my son is only 16)!!!!

Thanks for letting us all know about Stacy. I hate to hear that such a nice person had to be in the hospital. Off to send her a card...which I should have done a few days ago... I've been sick all of October (but nothing so serious)!

Nice card BTW!
