Calling Batman!

My daughter has been on a Batman revival lately.  She asked me to make her a "blank" Batman card; so of course I did!  She was delighted to see her card.

And then I decorated the inside.

To give the illusion of flying bats, I quickly smugged my finger across a few of them immediately after stamping.

Stamps: Halloween Backgrounds
Ink: Basic Black
Cardstock: Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Wicked Fun specialty DSP
Accessories: bitty bat punch, 1-3/8" circle punch, ticket punch, 1/8" basic black taffeta ribbon

Finally a Blogger

Ok, folks, I'm taking a huge leap here and starting a blog!  It's going to take some time for me to get the hang of it and make it look good; so bear with me.  I'm been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for nine years.  We moved from Idaho to Illinois this summer and I will be restarting my business here.  My darling daughter just started high school this year; so now I can start blogging.  My BFF, Faye, has been blogging for a while and I always wanted to share my creations just like she does:  Faye's blog 

Here's a card I made recently for a friend.  Hope you enjoy it.
