Batty For You

 Well my BFF (Darlene) and I are at it again, we just can't leave well enough alone
and have started once more another NEW challenge blog!
It is all about stencil fun and called 

yep, we are all about stencils!
Stencils are one of 'MY' favorite things to work with
especially the layered ones, the results are always amazing!

We are an anything goes stencil challenge with an optional theme
and this month it's Halloween Colors!

I had this background already made just waiting for its chance to debut!
I added my two bats from Photoplay and the stencil is
Pink Fresh Studio Argyle.

Entering this card into the following challenges:
If You Gave A Crafter A Cookie....Halloween (m)

Addicted To Stamps and More .... any Occasion 
Crafty Friends Challenge .... Use More then One Die (spellbinders and the bats) (m)
Crafting Happiness .... Halloween (m)

For my anything goes stencil I used another one I already had done
from Memory Box Florina 2014.  I don't think they make them anymore
and they should, I have several of theirs and love them!

How do you store your stencils?
I have a 3" deep notebook with page protectors in it and each stencil goes
in a protector, keeps them nice and flat and clean and I can just leaf
through the notebook to see what I want to use.
Problem is, it is full so now I will need a second one!!!

Take a peek at our new blog, if joining us and
when adding our link to your blog you can just use Stencil Fun
since our name is so long lol!!

WOW! The argyle background on your first card is AWESOME!!! And your adorable bats are the perfect addition! And, I love that second card ... I do believe I too have that stencil (imagine that lol) and I love what you've done with it ... very pretty. Fabulous inspiration my friend! HAPPY STENCILING!

You're so good with the stencils and, wowie, I love the batty Halloween card especially! Those bats are so cute, and I love your argyle colors. I didn't know about Memory Box stencils, but I do love these funky fun flowers. My friend stores her stencils in a notebook and I like that idea. Mine are all jumbled in a drawer, each in its own packaging. I will need to do something else pretty soon. I never expected to have this many stencils, but I've grown to love them. I will be playing in this challenge.
