Happy Halloween!

I thought I better get this card posted before it's no longer Halloween, ha! I adore Halloween images and I'm bummed that, once again, I didn't find enough time to create a ton of cards with them (because believe me, I own a ton!). But I did manage to make a fun little bat card...

The wings fold in, how cute is that?

I saw this card in a magazine and found the pattern on the Better Homes & Gardens website. Inside my bat I included my favorite little Hambo digi image - Wee Henry Vampire! Isn't he adorable?? I love vampires and I love bats. I'm very strange that way. :-)

Speaking of loving bats - my boy is crazy for bats these days! As a matter of fact, one of these days his mommy is going to hang a whole bunch of bats from the ceiling of his bedroom so he can live in his own Bat Cave...! So when he saw my little bat pattern, he wanted to make one too! Which was perfect, since we wanted to play along with the latest Children's Challenge, which was to make a Halloween themed card!

Like the dots on his nose? He was using a chocolate-scented black marker and got a little carried away with the sniffing, LOL!

And here's my little Batman himself. This was on Friday, when they dressed up to go to preschool. There was never any doubt who Carter wanted to go as! He's already talking about his plan for next year's costume, too - Robin. We'll see if that changes in the next year... :-)

Thanks for stopping by!
