another holiday card

Another Christmas card. I am thinking about using this card for some of my November workshops. I watercolored the main image using various classic reinkers and an aquapainter.

What I used:
Peace to the World stamp set
Soft Sky and Basic Black card stock
watercolor paper
Wintergreen designer paper
black Stazon ink pad
various classic reinkers
aquapainter

Since today is Halloween and I have children we had to carve pumpkins last nights. Jeff ended up working late because of a long transport run and Daniel was buried in homework so the pumpkin carving duties fell to me this year. I cut all the tops off of the pumpkins so the kids could gut the pumpkins. Ellie did not enjoy that task at all and Manny has always had a hard time touching anything gooey but turns out Jessika is the pumpkin carving queen. She gutted 5 pumpkins in the time it took the other two to each do one and actually finished theirs for them. Then proceeded to carve the faces (using one of those safe carving things) in 4 pumpkins all by herself. Here is Manny in his dinosaur costume.
I made that one years ago for his brother Daniel when he was in Kindergarten too.
Here is Jessika dressed as Jessie the cowgirl from Toy Story 2.
