Happy Halloween


Here's the Halloween Tree I made this year.


Tomorrow I'll change it to a Gratitude Tree.

Hopefully!

Friday Mashup is asking for a witch this week.  The mashup is to use bleach too.  No bleach. Sorry girls.  But this is a witchy pumpkin.

Addicted to Stamps is playing Bingo this week.


My FREE space is Ribbon.

I'm going to take my snippets to the Playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop Week 44.  It's always fun to play there.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Jack of All Trades, Wacky Wishes (Hostess selection)
Ink:  Tangerine Tango, Basic Black
Paper:  Tangerine Tango, Whisper White,  Old Olive
Other:  Big Shot, Woodgrain EF, Swirls Scribbles Sizzlit (retired), Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon (scrap)

Tree Recipe

Ink:  Various
Paper: Scraps
Other:  Punches (Scallop Square, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle, 1 1/4" Scallop Circle, 1" Circle Owl Builder), Baker's Twine, Spider Die (MB)

Please note: The shadows behind the tree make it look twice as big as it actually is.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Watch out for those tricksters!

Enjoy!

Brilliant card - and I love the tree Bonnie! We don't celebrate nearly as many occasions in the UK as you do - although we do have Guy Fawkes night coming up soon.

Yikes, no bonfires under the tree house though! Di xx

Hi Bonnie

I have never seen a Halloween Tree before!!

You set my mind thinking about all the different trees you could have all year round. Of course my favourite would be the Valentine tree in February LOL!!!

Hope all is OK where you are.

Love Jules xx

Such a cute punkin card! And I'll bet your grandkids adore your seasonal tree. What a neat idea.

Loved seeing the white background on this Halloween card. Such a refreshing change from the blacks, oranges & purples (and many of them were my own!). The white makes the punkins just glow, really inspired color combo here. TFS a beautiful card.
