Going Battywampus ....

I know, I know, it's really cattywampus, but I love a play on words.  Today over at Top Tip Tuesday we're hosting a Circles or Hexagons Challenge!  There's an INCREDIBLE tutorial by our very own talented Annette on making Circle Step Cards, so you won't want to miss this very detailed and exceptional display of pure genius talent!! 
  Our incredible sponsors this time around are Fred She Said and Tiddly Inks 
My image titled Batty from Tiddly Inks, is hands down, THE coolest Halloween image and she looks just perfect standing in front of this incredible hexagon tea light holder.
Ohhh, so creepy!!  But seriously, isn't that a groovy reflection on the wall? 

Okay, that's the deets, so join us over at 
Top Tip Tuesday for our Circle or Hexagon Challenge
and be eligible for a prize from our Sponsor.  Leave a Tip and you could also win a Guest Design Spot too! 

Just real quick....I apologize for the quietness from myself. We were away on vacation and just returned to find that the hubster has taken a butt load of days off and we're trying to have a "stay in town" vacation.  LOL  Which translated means, oops, I forgot Spring Cleaning, let's do it now that's it's hotter than hoo-ha and who's going to take what shift watering the lawn so it doesn't die and when do when we meet with so n' so to pick out a whatnot for the new house?  It's quality time I tell ya!!! ;)
I promise that I will return, probably NOT rested, but eager to see what you've all been up to.
I miss you SOOOO much!!

Hugs to you all and happy crafting,
Lisa xx

This is such a great creation, and in addition to your cardmaking abilities I'm quite impressed by your photographer skills as well! This is so spooky in a cute way. Love this card!

Patricia St Martin said...

I have to say the reflection is amazing. I like eerie shadows like this but not like real ones. You remind me of my Dad, he unfortunately is not with us anymore but he loved to play with words ALL the time and he always had a joke and would say if you could make someone smile then you have had a wonderful day. His love for life was all in music and song.
Hugs, Pat

HEY! I think once you get a bit more ink on your hands you will be rested. There is a weird scientific correlation between crafting and vacation...LOL!

Wow - fabulous! Love the halloween tea light creation. That is a groovy reflection on the wall! You sound busy...

Sandy said...

First of all, I have struck "Spring Cleaning" out of my vocabulary. It is now called "Clean whenever you can". I love Halloween and your project puts a big smile on my face. But then again, you are using strange words. Tell me, what is a Battywampus? I don't even know what a Cattywampus is! Is it contagious? Can you die from it? Is that why you make spooky tea candles for your home so the Wampus cannot get in? Hmmmmmmm
