Happy Halloween!

 I am sorry but I made multiple attempts at correcting the above image but no go- for some reason it is stuck on its side.
First make the hat with 2 pieces in black using the tree punch - (retired Stampin' Up) and the 2 1/2 inch circle. cut out the center using the word window punch- also retired.  I  attached a black medium sized clothespin using glue dots to the triangle tree shapes- I also like to fold over a little of the tree to tape it onto the circle base as shown so it makes a hat.
punch a little square into the a 1/2 inch strip of glimmer paper and then cut it to make a buckle

 Diecut the take out box in green and stamp the sentiment from the Spooky Sweets set and punch out the bats using the spooky bats punch.

Clip the hat on top and I love the effect.

Here are some Spooky Treats I received from my friends to share with you all....

my husband's birthday card


My husband wanted the Iwatch for his birthday and I wanted to make a card to reflect that.
I found this stamp from Lawn Fawn called You're Clawsome and it was perfect.

I found a picture of the watch on line and I shrunk it printed it out so that it would fit in the claw and I thought it was pretty perfect. 

I did put the picture of the kids on the other side as a momento as I always do.  It's fun to see the kids growing up more and more every year.
