Made for me :)

Today I wanted to share a card made for me by my niece Adelle for my birthday last month.  Its Brilliant (....with a capital B!) to have your birthday so close to Halloweeeeeeen (no one dare forget) and I love all the spooky cards I get (at least thats why I think I always get witches on my cards - ahem, Mother-In-Law!).. :D

Anyway, she made this card using Batty Princess from Quixotic (my birthday present to me!) as I had to have it when I saw it.  I love Bats, which is a good thing, as they seem to like living at our house!  I assure you they are in the attic, and we are not over-run, but we do get used to seeing them fly through the house occasionally during midsummer, and take lots of care when we find them lost. 

Below is a picture of 'Batfink' a baby bat (apologies if you dont like them) that we found in our curtains last year.  This wee fella was the size of a 50p and following the instructions from the bat society protection people, we placed him in a little shoe box, on tissue paper with a small amount of water in a bottle top lid.  Later at night, we put him on one of the upstairs windowsills (away from danger) and he was found by his mum and gone by the morning. :)  

Anyway, as this card is posted too late for most of the halloween challenges, I am entering it on behalf of Adelle in the Creative Craft Challenge as this week the challenge is Stars.  There is a star charm hanging from the pin, so I hope this is ok.

Thanks for looking :)

hugs, xxalisonxx

Glad you managed to help the little bat. I'm the one who has to do the toad/frog rescues & the woodlice....... spiders R can manage but not woodlice - they're what he terms "YOUR friends". Love Adelle's card - how lovely to have a niece who shares your interest & that green pin is a wonder with the violet colours - there's been some serious colour theory studying going on ..........

As you may have noticed, I have not been very active on the web through the last weeks, so I did not see this sweet little fellow until today. I love bats, too, and only this summer we realised that their are 70 bats living in/on our house (we have been living there for 11 years). They are amazing! They live on the outside, underneath a roofbeam.
