Halloween Altered Tin..Nestie Card Set

Happy Monday Friends,
Are you ready for Halloween yet?  Well, ready or not....it will be here in a couple of weeks.  It seems as we get older that these years go by so much faster than they used to, doesn't it? 
Well, today I would like to share with you a set that I made for Halloween.  I have never altered a bandaid tin before, so I thought Halloween would be a nice time to give it a try.  Nice to put a few treats and goodies in for the teacher or maybe just someone else special who might enjoy a little keepsake that they can display on their desk or shelf for the season. 
For my card, I wanted to try some paper piecing.  I do alot of stamps and digis, but not much with paper piecing, so I decided to put my nesties to use and make some nestie pumpkins and a crow for a matching set with the tin for Halloween. 
I hope you enjoyed my Halloween set today.  What do you think?  Do you like the nestie images, or do you prefer stamps and digis?  I think I love them all the same myself.  It is fun to switch things up sometimes.  Have a great week everyone!
