Time for a new challenge at

Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge

Can you believe we are creating Halloween in MARCH?
We are and it is SO much fun to be able to get some use
out of our Halloween goodies!

There is a mood board for inspiration 
but it is just that as the challenge theme is always anything goes Halloween!!  

I decided I was going to go with the mood board
for MY inspiration, I just couldn't resist Frankie or those fun colors!

I used some paper that has been in my stash since 2013
yep seven long years from Me & My BIG Ideas.
I so wanted to buy some new but since I have so
much Halloween paper I decided to resist, very hard for me!

I had a lot of fun paper piecing Frankie together
and was thrilled to see I had a die for the bats
I think they are pretty cool!

Why not join us for some Halloween fun year round at

Supplies Used:
Dies:  Tutti Designs Grumpy Frankie
Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Banners,
Tonic Studios Spooktacular Coffin Treat Box (bats)

Such a fun card Diane! Love that background paper and Frankie looks so 'dapper' in his fancy shirt! Love the yellow boots too(he's ready for those April showers). Great job ... Great fun!

Love that jazzy shirt good old Frank has on with his yellow shoes!! He looks like a real fun guy!

I love all of the die cuts you used for this project! They match perfectly with the background pattern paper and this one was definitely a labor of love with all of the paper piecing you did! WOW! Thanks for the GD spot! Take care!

Love his outfit, perfect combination of colors and the pattern paper is just fun and colorful too.
Who says Halloween is just for kids??
Awesome card, teammate.
Stay healthy and safe.

I can't believe I purged my one and only Frankie, and he was a favorite stamp, too. It had to have been an accident, boo hoo. I guess I'll just have to love on your Frankie card which is so totally adorable and colorful. I love that fun paper, too!

That background paper is too much fun, and I'm conflicted with the same issue and currently on hold from buying more! Frankie looks good with all the paper piecing and I love those swooping little bats too!

Diane, your Grumpy Frankie doesn't look very grumpy he a total hipster ready for trick or treating with his friends. Love your card!
