The Birds and The Bats

Just a trio of cards I made today using birds and bats!

This first one is for Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #173 and Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #231 to use some bling. I found this paper pad in my pile of 6x6 pads and have never used it despite it being absolutely stunning - all pinks, reds and greens! Must use it again soon!

My next card is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #112 and I fancied doing a Hallowe'en card for this one using my new SU DSP pack, which although is classed as a Hallowe'en pack is not really. The colours are but the patterns can be used for any occasion which is great as once Hallowe'en has gone I can still use the papers for other projects instead of waiting for Hallowe'en to come round again, by which time I've probably bought some more papers anyway!


Recipe:


And my final card for today is for Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #143 to make a scene. Again I went with a Hallowe'en scene with Batty Princess outside in her garden of pumpkins! It's just so easy to do a quick easy night time scene, but it took an absolute age to cut her out . Won't be doing that again in a hurry - looks great though!

And that's all from me today folks! Off to carry on doing a bit more for my assignment. Still need to do about 3100 words! And I want to get it done by next Friday at the very latest! Thanks for stopping by!

  9. What a fabulous job you have done on all your cards. Of course my favourite is the Batty Princess one. Wonderful job with the scene!! You are a brave girl to cut out the princess, that sure IS a lot of work, but totally worth it as it really makes the card.
    Thanks so much for playing along with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!
