Going Batty

A weekend of birthday fun has come and gone and now it’s on to the first week of school!  A bit hard to believe, yet, isn’t summer always this way?  Full of fun and seeming too short!

For today’s Prickley Pear creation, I made a Halloween card.  My second for the year!  With September just around the corner, I can’t help but think about cooler autumn days and all that comes with them!

The bat image and die will both be in the Prickley Pear store soon!

I started out with just a single bat in the middle of the card and then my brain wouldn’t budge.  I abandoned the card on my work table and went off to do other things.  When I came back, I just started playing around with different arrangements, not really satisfied with anything!  All of a sudden things snapped into place and I came up with this card.  Funny how that happens!

It’s off to classroom orientations now!  Hoping DS2 warms up to the idea of going back to school.  Ah, kindergarten.

Have a marvelous Monday!

    I LOVE that funky bat and I also love when things just click into place. 🙂 Glad you had a good birthday weekend!

    Melissa, this is so cute! Love the pop of orange at the bottom and of course, the bat is as cute as can be!
