Batty for You

Good morning!  I think I am one of those kids sneaking in to the room in the back because I'm late.  So sorry to be here for this post late.  I usually don't sleep in but apparently my body felt I needed it today.

Onto this fun card.  This card's layout is the last in our Blast from the Past series of sketches at The Sweet Stop.  What a great sketch it is too!  For this card I used the set Birdie Bat from Doodle Pantry and the accompanying papers.  I knew I wanted to use the Batty for You sentiment so I made the Tangerine Tango (which does match the orange stripe in the paper) and black cardstock with a heart embossing folder that I have.  Inside I have just a plain white piece of paper with a tangerine border and a bat in the left corner.  It was a great way to finish off the card.  I'm also entering this in the Saturday Challenge for this week which is Spooky or Whimsical.  I think my card is both!

I won't talk much so that you can get onto the other Sweet Stop DT members to see what they did and can I just tell you...they are fabulous...once again!


Thought of the day:  Don't give up what you want most for what you want now.
