It's TWO OLD BATS time once again!

Hello friends !

The Two Old Bats Halloween Blog is BACK IN ACTION!

After a 'winter break', Diane (yep, my Old Bat partner) and I have decided to resurrect the blog for some Halloween fun ... never too early to get those spooky creations started.  Diane has created this fabulous inspiration board for us ... let the fun begin!

And here's what I have to share with you today . . .

I have pulled this card together using some NEW and VERY OLD stash.

My background paper comes from the Pink & Main 'Not Too Spooky' 6x6 paper pad.
My flying bats are from a very old Inkadinkado stamp set called 'Halloween Trails'.
And my other stamps are from another old set from Crafty Secrets (sadly no longer in business) called 'Halloween Fun' (circa 2008)

I hope you'll come join us and have some fun too!  

Once again ... here's a recap of how things are done on our new blog . . .

  • Monthly Challenge
  • Start on the 2nd of the month
  • Ends on the 28th of the month
  • Winners chosen by the DT
  • Winners announced on the 1st of the month prior to start of next new challenge.
