I Always Feel Like Somebody's Watching Me...

Hi ya friends!
Happy Halloween to ya! I LUUUUUUV Halloween- it's so fun 'round these parts! We all keep it light & fun. Today I wanted to share a card I had a blast creating & it's totally a concept I came up with in a dream. I know I'm not the only dream crafter out there, right???
Here's the cover:
 The card is held closed with this meshy-webby creepylicious ribbon :) The sentiment reads "Enter if you Dare." I cut that out on my Cricut using the Happy Hauntings cart.

Then when you slide the ribbon off...
 goes the spooky tree & the gravestones!
 I cut the tree (and the sentiment) on my Cricut as well with Happy Hauntings. This is the tree that actually is a 3D tree (it stands on its own), but I only used 1 side & altered it a bit to create a pop up tree! I love the creepylicious feel it has :) The gravestones were made with the small tag punch from SU! & then I added a little pen work to embellish.

 Here's another peek at it:

You may have noticed that this is no ordinary tree. Nooooooooo. Apples or oranges don't grow on this tree---
 They're EYES!!! Yup, popped some googly eyes on :) I also added some flower soft to cover the pop up mechanism & give it that mossy look. I added a bit more around the grave stones as well. It was the perfect touch!

The card does close flat & the tree pops right up when you open it! I love it when a plan comes together just like I had imagined---> or in this case, dreamed of!

Well friends, I hope you have a howling good time trick-or-treating tonight. Don't forget to grab the good candy check the candy your kiddos get before they have at it. It's your duty---> your obligation as a good parent ;)

Sorry I didn't get a chance to share more Halloween cards & projects- trust me I had a lot more to share. But for Christmas, I'm wishing for 40 hours in my day. 24 just isn't cutting it! KWIM???
Thanks so much for peeking today!
 Gotta Go!
