May It Be A Very Batty Birthday! Fabulous Inky Friday With Tiddly Inks Stamps

Happy Friday all!! 

I always seem to do a little jig and the "da da da dadum" song dances in my head when Fridays come along LOL! I don't know about you, but I'll be doing the back to school shopping rush this weekend. I'll let you know if I come out alive...specially heading to the battlefield at Walmart this time of year! lol.


I have my first Fabulous Inky Friday card to share today using another one of the ADORABLY creepy cuties from Christy's new releases!! And remember there is a fun blog hop going on through till the 19th with some super exciting prizes for the top commenters!! You can start HERE and hop on through for some outstanding inspiration from the whole team! Oh and don't forget you still have 4 more days to whip up a creation for the "Birthday Bash" challenge!!

I'm in love with these "creepies"...never knew creepy could be sooooo stinking cute!! 

The new release image I used today is called "Batty For You" and can be found in the Tiddly Inks shop HERE in digital form or HERE if you prefer the pyhsical stamps. 

I used the digital set and merged some of the elements of the set together to create my scene. I've been experimenting with backgrounds lately and trying to see what works best for me or what I like more. Loving the way these darker background are turning out...although it does use up a LOT of ink. I will be in need of refills soon, lol. 

LOVE these gorgeous ribbon roses from Recollections! When I run out, I'm thinking about trying my hand at making my own! :)

And now the inside...I meant to use the hanging bats as a backdrop for the inside but completely forgot about it until I had put it all together and stitched everything up. Ah well, maybe next time!
