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 :)
