It's TWO OLD BATS time . . .

 Hello friends and thanks for stopping by today!

It's time once again for a new monthly challenge over on the
Two Old Bats Halloween Blog!

Just wait until you see what the team has created ... OMG!!  And to help us get our mojo going, Diane (yep, my Old Bat partner) has created this fabulous inspiration board. . .

 For today's creation, I was obviously inspired by the image in the upper right corner.  I knew I had this 'pumpkin face' in my stash from YEARS ago and so that was my starting point.  From there I hunted for a black & white gingham designer paper panel ... whew finally located one!  Then (better late then never) I looked in my Halloween drawer and had forgotten I bought 2 new paper packs (all Halloween) last year and there were several panels I could have used.  LOL  Oh well ... that's what happens when you get OLD!  LOL

Anyways, having the pumpkin face and gingham paper made this card put together VERY QUICK!  A few bat stickers and a sentiment and VIOLA!!

 Just to refresh your memory ... here's a recap of how things are done on our blog.
