December Two Old Bats Challenge

It's December but Two Old Bats is making Halloween
year round, how cool is that?  It gives a great opportunity
to use all your fun Halloween stash,
not just one month a year but an entire TWELVE!  

We as always have a fun inspiration board but it's just that, inspiration!!
You can choose to use it or not as our theme is always
Anything goes HALLOWEEN!

Inspiration Board


I usually try to use the board if I can, it's a great part of the challenge 
for me to see if have something to represent the board!

I let the cat in the window on the bottom left inspire me!
I knew I had a never used before cat stamp from Prickley Pear
Scary Cat and Bat and matching Die.
What's really funny I never noticed (or I forgot) that there was a small bat
included in both the stamp and cat die set, AND also when I went to get the links
I see they now have a Scary Cat set TWO!!
I am sure that will end up in my mailbox real soon!!

I die cut a window and shutters and hung the shutters like you
find on an old dilapidated house and added a silly pumpkin sticker
I have had around forever!  I stuck him to a scrap of black card stock
then fussy cut him out to give more stability,
after all I didn't want him to fall off the window sill and smash!
I also added the bat that surprised me when I die cut the cat!

I know it's December but we would still would like you to take a break
from your holiday card making and join in with us at Two Old Bats!
Super design team inspiration AND if we reach 50 or more players
we give away a prize, sometimes with even less players, you just have to play to find out!

This is Halloween .... ATG Halloween

OMG ... you clever, clever girl! I would have never thought to die cut a window & shutters THEN position them as you have! BRILLIANT and yes my mind immediately went to the old haunted houses back in the woods type of scene! GREAT THINKING! I thought it came that way! Dang girl this is brilliant! Awesome card!

It's so cool and clever that you used not only the cat but the window he is sitting in as inspiration, fabulous! Creative Blessings, Tracy x

Ack! I've been looking at this card and loving it all this time. The cat is so COOL, and it's pure genius how you tipped the shutters to give it that dilapidated look. Love the pumpkin in the window, too. This is just the cutest thing, Diane! ps: You had me over there looking...
