I'm Batty for You!!

Hello everyone: I hope and pray you and your families are doing well, taking care of each other and wearing your masks.

My hubby and I got our first Covid-19 vaccine shot last March 18th., we'll go to get our second shot on April 14th.  Aside of sore arms, we didn't get any adverse effects so we are so very grateful for that.  We will continue to wear our masks and practice all the guidelines prescribed by doctors and scientists.


So, my teammates and I from the 2 OLD BATS HALLOWEEN CHALLENGE want to invite you to play along.  I know we celebrate other Holidays this month but still, I think it would be fun to step out of the usual themes and create something a little spooky and fun at the same time, how about it, eh?  This is the card I created to inspire you and encourage you to play along.

This is the INSID

And this is what I used.

This fun image is from Kraftin' Kimmie and it's called "Batty for You".
Unfortunately, it's retired, so, so sad!!
I used Prismacolor pencils on everything except her dress.
When I colored it, I didn't like the way it looked, I wanted a lime green
color but I didn't have it so, I stamped the image again on a piece of lime green card stock and fussy cut it, I like it a lot!!
And, of course, I gave this beautiful lady some awesome eye shadow with a Q-tip and a lime green chalk.
The sentiments inside are, I think, from Stampendous, but I'm not sure.

I hope you get inspired to play along, get into a Halloweeny kind of mood for a little while and join my awesome teammates and I in our gallery.
For more inspiration, don't forget to hop over the 2 OLD BATS HALLOWEEN CHALLENGE  and check out the DT creations.

Thank you for visiting me today.
Stay healthy and safe.

Oh Maria this is AWESOME! What a cute image and you've showcased it perfectly! Well done! Your coloring is perfect ... cute, cute, cute! YAY ... so glad you're getting your vaccines! Hubby & I both have both of ours (we're old lol) and we too continue to wear our masks and social distance. Hope you have a wonderful upcoming Easter weekend!
