It’s Hallo-tine!!!

Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge

It’s the February Anything Goes Halloween Challenge with the Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge blog. Their mood board was made up of lots of hearts. So…….how could I incorporate Halloween and Valentines, you may ask? Well you squish them together and come up with a new holiday called Hallo-tine.

Keeping with the HALLO-ween theme, I used SimonSaysStamps’s Layered Spooky Icons layering stencils and inked each panel in soft colors. My little monster is Tim Holtz Sizzix Costume Party colorize die set. After using Spellbinders’ pierced hearts dies for my valen-TINE portion of my card and a stamped the Recollections sentiment on the medium size heart. I took another die into the LABoratory. to perform surgery and stamped the baby on the smallest pink heart. Punched the EK Success funky heart in red shimmer cardstock for my little monster bursting out of the heart to complete my card.

So I’m thinking that this may be the perfect card for Will for Valentine’s Day. LOL…not sure if he will appreciate it or not. Maybe I’ll put a removeable panel inside for the sentiment I can give it to him again on Halloween and wonder if he will remember that it’s the same card. LOL…..My excuse is that I’ve developed some crazy, itchy rash on my body that makes me want to rip my skin off. So this may just be the little monster in me because of my condition. Lotions, aloe, powders, nothing helped to relieve this except scratching which then made it worse. A visit to the walk-in was YUP it’s a rash but here’s a script for prednisone. First dose today and it resulted in a little relief and a knocked me out for a short, deep afternoon nap.

Sorry for the long story tonight but my brain kind of went into overdrive on this challenge. Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.

  1. This is so cute and so creative. It’s not easy to combine Halloween and Valentine’s day onto one card! You seemed like you had a ball writing this post – lol! (And I often wonder if my husband would notice if I reused cards for him too!!) I’m sorry to hear you are so uncomfortable; hopefully you will feel better soon.

  2. HALLO-TINE, great combination of my two favorite holidays. This card is great, I love it. If Will is like my husband he won’t remember it. LOL Hope you get the itching under control and feel better soon.

  3. I love how your brain works Gayle. This is a wonderful creation and perfectly in tune with the mood board. I chuckled as I was reading although not happy to hear of your rash. Hope the drugs help. I doubt hubby will remember as most men don’t so go for the removable panel,.
