I've Gone Batty!


Well, not really! At least not yet... lol! I created this using the new Inspired by Nature set from Stampin' Up. It was actually my dear friend Lynda that saved this card. I called her the other night frantic because while I was putting the card together I smudged some of the grass and was freaking out! {Come on, we've all been there so you know how frustrating this can be.} Well, Lyn just calmly said, "Why don't you cover it up with a bat"! DUH! I hadn't thought of that so I quickly got out my trusty Martha Stewart bat and here ya go! Only the stamper knows what mess lies underneath her finished product. ;-) I used Glossy paper, a rubber brayer, Ruby Red and Pumpkin Pie ink pads. I punched a circle and then attached it to the cs before brayering to keep the moon white. I placed it on Basic Black and then Craft cs. Thanks for visiting. I really appreciate it!

PLEASE VOTE FOR ME!

This is fabulous. Love it! I never would have thought the bats were not intentional. They look great. Some of my worst mistakes became my best cards..

What a fun and very kewl card!! The bats were born to live on that card!

Prolly 75% the cards I make have carefully hidden 'mistakes!' I thought that was S.O.P., lol! Hey! It's in the Manual!!

ROFLMBO on the comment you left me today, "Oh yeah, thanks for running that stupid Challenge! Now I'm getting obsessed about it." LOLOL, I can actually HEAR you sayin' that Kiddo! Ah, well, just another day in the life for us compulsive types!
