November Challenge Winners

 It's time to announce our winners for our November
Two Old Bats Halloween challenge!
We didn't have many entries for this challenge but the ones we did
have were amazing!

However, before getting to that we have some changes to announce.
After much discussion with the team we have decided to
'take a winter/holiday break' until MARCH 2nd.
We felt that most are caught up in the holidays
with little time to be creative for a Halloween challenge!

So please mark your calendars for March 2nd when we
will be back with the challenge!

Speaking of changes, we felt that with so few entries
that it would be impossible to pick a Top 3 so we would like
each and every one of you to grab our badge for Top 3
and display on your blog as in our eyes, you ALL deserve it!
We can't thank you enough for your entries! 

CONGRATULATIONS!

Please grab your TOP 3 badge from our sidebar
to display proudly on your blog. 

AND, our TOP WINNER is:

#3 Paper Talk With Samra

CONGRATULATIONS! 

Please be sure to grab your WINNERS badge from our sidebar
to display proudly on your blog ... you've earned it!

A huge congratulations to you all!!

Thanks Again Everyone!

Please remember to stop back March 2nd for our new monthly challenge!
Hope to see you there!!

HALLOWEEN JUMP START

 
 WELCOME!!!
 
Hey 'Ghoul-friends', have we got a fun NEW challenge blog for you!
It's all about Halloween ALL year long.
Sound exciting?  Sound like fun?
Well, it certainly will be!

Let me tell you a brief way we came about!
My BFF Dar and I (Diane) were talking one day about how fast
Halloween comes and goes and we never seem to have enough
time to use our fabulous Halloween 'stash' so maybe, just maybe
we should start a Halloween challenge blog
after all they have all Christmas challenge blogs, right?
Well, one thing led to another and here we are!

I suggested the blog name of Two Old Bats because,
well, I won't go there, lets just say we are 'somewhat' old
and maybe even a little 'batty'!

Dar set up the blog totally and I mean totally
and it looks absolutely fabulous, don't you agree?
Then we put a call out for a design team
never imagining it would take off so fast
and let me tell you, talking of fabulous,
that is just what they are!

I will be creating an inspiration/mood board each month
and it's just that, something to give you a bit of inspiration,
after all this is an ANYTHING GOES HALLOWEEN CHALLENGE!

Here is the first FUN board:
 

 
You can find our Rules in the sidebar but will tell you this will be a MONTHLY challenge beginning in November.  But for today, while we get our design team pulled together, we are going to have a Halloween Jump Start Challenge ... that means ANYTHING GOES HALLOWEEN and this challenge will begin Oct. 13th and end on the 28th.  Winner will be announced on November 1st prior to our next challenge.

Here's some inspiration from the TWO OLD BATS themselves . . .



OH and lookie here ...
Some of our new team members have come to join in the fun and we also have a Guest Designer!  A proper DT introduction will be shared on our first official monthly challenge on Nov. 2nd.  But, here's a sneak peek of things to come from this FABULOUS team of Halloween lovers.

We want to welcome our FIRST guest designer
with her awesome card and appreciate her so much for joining us
with her beautiful card...
Bunny Hoyle
GUEST DESIGNER
 

And even more from our FABULOUS new Design Team

WOW!  SPOOKtacular ladies!!!
Fabulous inspiration!!

Remember you can find more details on the teams creations by clicking on their name and going to their personal blogs.  Please pop on over and share what you love about their projects.
 
OH!  ...  AND ...
