Retro Sketches #29 and CAS-ual Fridays




It seems like it has been forever since I have had the chance to participate in these challenges. Retro Sketches is one of my favorite challenge blogs to do and this weeks sketch turned out to be so perfect for a Halloween card, my favorite holiday! And it just so happens that my card worked perfect for this weeks CAS-ual Friday, have not done one of their challenges in months! I decided to turn the sketch on its side and stretch out this sweet little bat that is all decked out and ready to hit the streets for a bit of trick or treating.  I fell in love with this amazing Halloween bakers twine that my friend Joyce from Cards-by-the-Sea sent me, it is just perfect for my pumpkin. Thanks for much to taking a peek!

  1. What an incredible card. Your bat is adorable, and I love that pumpkin. It looks exactly like the plastic buckets my girls used to use when they went trick or treating when they were younger. So glad you put that twine to good use!
