Albino Bat


This is one of the cards I struggled with this weekend and have to say it just ended up "so, so" as far as I'm concerned. One time I look at it and like it and the next time I look at it and don't like it at all. Now first of all, look at the coloring on this pumpkin....and THEN go over to Dana's blog (Dana's Inspirations) and check out her pumpkin AND the tutorial on how to color it!!!! Whoa, is that pretty or what! Then we get back to my pumpkin and go......well, at least I'm trying!!

This cute little image is for Designed 2 Delight for the progressive challenge. This really isn't my cat at all.......mine would just look at that spider and go on about her business! I used some SU and CTMH paper. The sentiment and the albino bat are from Happy Haunting (CTMH). We all know that bats are black/gray......however, when I tried to color it, it kept losing it's appeal... It just has such a happy little face and coloring it just seemed to cover up his smile. So, we have an albino bat!

Thanks for stopping by..............

I think you did a fine job with the pumpkin, I am just getting started as well, but figure I have to start somewhere. I love the paper and the stitching around the card, I like it. My cat would eat the spider.

Too funny -- an albino bat, very clever. I saw an albino squirrel last week, rather unsettling. Love your card. Love the card, even if you don't.

I think the albino bat is super cute. I do love the cat too. My cat would pick up a spider and drop it in my lap still alive. UGH! It creeps me out thinking of it.

Anne Marie said...

Your albino bat is awesome! Made me smile! :) So did your adorable card. Your pumpkin looks great and the stitching, ribbon and cut out sentiment are the perfect touches! I think you did a great job!

What a cute image. I like your coloring and how you kept this cheery and bright. The stitching is a great accent.

As far as golfing goes... I agree with you. My hubby wouldn't though. He's really good. In fact he could have entered the pro circuit 20 years ago but decided to be practical and get a "real" job. He still plays a lot but I've only gone with him once in the past 15 years or so. I enjoy the walk but watching the game played is like watching paint dry :-)

I love the layout, and think for a struggle, this card turned out beautifully. :o) That cat is too precious, and I love your albino bat. ;o)
