Ghost Peeker
Sweet Sketch 177
Sponsor:  Bugaboo

Can you believe that the holidays are upon us?  Where did this year go?  Is it just me?  Life seems to be spinning by faster and faster!  But in spite of the year's fast passing....I love Halloween!  I love to decorate and enjoy the fall transitioning before Thanksgiving and Christmas arrive!

This week our fabulous sponsor at Sweet Sketch Wednesday is Bugaboo.  Jodie has sponsored us since our  early beginnings.  She was just getting her blog going and had so many fun images and such a unique style!  Now she has so many more images I cannot begin to keep up with them all!  That is what makes it so fun to look around her shop.  There's a lot of creativity in that brain of hers.  And I love that it just keeps flowing!  Thanks, Jodie, for sharing your talent with the world!

Now at Sweet Sketch Wednesday we love to have you play along and use Arlana sketch of the week.  Remember to follow the rules.  If you are the lucky Grand Prize Winner, you will win 
7 free digis of your choice from Bugaboo.

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

SSW Sketch 177

I made this card while I was in Utah visiting Arlana!  In her stash I found this die cut that looked like bats.  I had to do a little trimming but I think it worked!  I wanted to use the Bat brads and the Swirls with this card so I brought them from home!  You don't see these swirls much any more but I always liked them and have plenty in my stash...thanks to Arlana!!!!

Happy Halloween!

Googly Eyed Bats

Yesterday in my email I received a tutorial on how to make these cute bats. 
 Click on the picture above
 and it will take you to the video.  
Right away I went to Krispy Kreme to get the chocolate donut holes but no luck.  They only carry the glazed  donut holes.  I thought I could make albino bats but chose to stick with the black bat.  I came across the Hostess Mini Cakes and thought they might do in a pinch!  So here is my version.

Happy Halloween!
