Happy Halloween Part II and a Christmas Tree

As promised last week, I have another Halloween card for you today.  Don’t know what possessed me.  I found the bat and spider web punches at a local scrapbooking store and had to have them.  I thought they were the neatest!  So this is what I came up with.

Halloween 2013-2

Isn’t it adorable?  Here’s what I used on this card.

Basic Black Card Stock  121046

Pumpkin Pie Card Stock  105117

Witches’ Brew Designer Series Paper  132185

Best of Halloween stamp set  134381

2 1/2″ Circle Punch 120906

Modern Label Punch  119849

Basic Black Classic Stamp Pad  126980

Rhinestone Basic Jewels  119246

It was a pretty simple card to make.

Yesterday, I along with several other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators in my area held our annual Stampin’ for the Cure Event.  All of us belong to the same group, and out up line started it seven years ago in memory of one of her friends that was taken by breast cancer.  It has always been a big success.  All of the product we use is donated by the demonstrators, and a few demonstrators hit up local business for donations for our silent auction.  All the money we raise is donated to our local chapter of Susan G. Komen.  The people who attend pay an entry fee, and they can buy raffle tickets for prize baskets filled with Stampin’ Up! product.  Attendees make a total of seven cards.  I thought I would share one of them with you.  It was created by my good friend Cathy Casey, and I am sure she won’t mind me sharing it with you.
