I don't do spooky. I don't do Halloween- never have gotten it, but my kids enjoy the whole dressing up bit. Nothing spooky or scary, plain ol' fun. As a teenager, my BFF at the time decided we should dress up and trick or treat. I think my dad wanted to put an end to the shinanagins and took us to a haunted house afterwards. Big Mistake. I was scared 'poopless'! Not funny, not remotely close to laughter, just plain old scared out of my pants. Think that is why at 28 my hair turned early gray. So, I don't embrace the holiday. I am in the minority.

This card was made in honor of a customer of mine. She requested a card with bats. Now, remember my story.... I don't have stamps except pumpkins. Kris to the rescue. She just bought some Mindscape stamps. If you look closely, the bats are made up of other images. COOL huh? See the cats, spider webs, and the skull? She stamped out some images for me, Jenn will be thrilled when we do her card workshop!

Now, the challenges that this card completes are:
1) Twisted Thursday #24- use purple and orange
2) Our Creative corner- make a fall card- Halloween is in fall, orange is a fall color
3) ABC- Challenge- D is for Die Cut, to cut out shapes: bats cut out, oval is cut using my cricut and I used my zigzag for the edging and I cut out the flag for the sentiment.

Thanks for coming over today!

Great card and thank you for playing with the Ladies w/ Attitude again, we love that you come back each week. I just discovered a new place called Pile It On challenges where the whole idea is about blending as many challenges into one card... I have the blinkie on my sidebar if you are interested. Good Luck in the S2G drawing
