Batty for You!


Today at Blogger's Challenge is a Halloween theme.  I will say that I'm ready for this weekend to be over and move onto the next holiday, this year is flying by fast!  The kids are ready for Halloween and get to wear their costumes today to school.  They asked me what my costume this year was going to be and I said "Mommy" and my daughter said, "you mean you are going to wrap toilet paper all over yourself?".  He, he, she's such a smarty pants.  MUMMY.

This is also the color scheme for the Off the Wall Craftiness challenge this week.


I created a little ATC size card using the stamp of the month, Beware, from Clear & Simple Stamps.  I loved how these turned out and I forgot how much I enjoy making the ATC's.  I kept it fairly simple, but added just a few accents.  I thought the bat would look kind of cool on a design so I used this stamp from the fancy Wishes set.

Make sure you check out the Halloween creations from the other blogger's here.  Can't wait to see what they create this week!

Stamps: Beware & Fancy Wishes from Clear & Simple Stamps
