NEW~NEW Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge

 Oh boy do I have something special to share with you today!
Dar from Dar's Crafty Creations and myself
have created a NEW challenge
for all you Halloween lovers called

I won't go into all the details of how this came about here,
but you can go to the challenge blog and read all about it
AND see all the designs from our fabulous new design team!

This challenge is what we are calling a 'jumpstart'.
Just being on for a few weeks before the 'real' challenge starts,
a sort of  'advertisement' you might say.
The 'real' challenge starts on Nov 2nd and ends on Nov 28th
with the same time frame each and every month!
Yes, it is a monthly challenge from then on out!
We also will have a Top 3 and a winner
and even some prizes once in awhile!

We will also have an inspiration/mood board
just to get your creativeness going ,but the challenge is always
Anything Goes!

For my card I made a quick one using an old stamp from the
dollar bin at Michael's many years ago.

This little mummy stamp had a flaw in him, little did I know.
I had to stamp him at least six times with 4 paper shims
under him just to get his face to stamp.
Good thing I had my TH platform.
I am thinking next time I will solve that problem by adding google eyes.

A mixture of TH Distress and Oxide inks were used on my spooky tree stencil.

Now head on over to the
Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge
and check us out and join in too!
