Monday Monster Mash Halloween Count Down Week Nine!!!

Hi Monster Mash Fans.
 I had a super busy weekend with my friend Deanna we went on a Road Trip and did lots of Cooking!! We had a blast and shopped at some really cool Craft and Antique stores along the way. Deanna and I even had time to make a few cards that I will show you guys later.

I made this really cute Halloween Card for my "Old Crow" Event. It was a big hit but it does have a lot of pieces, and took a little while to get together.

Do you want to Play along with the Monster Mash Blog Hop.?

Here are the rules:

1. It has to be Halloween, card or 3D item.
2. It does not have to be 100% SU 80% is ok.
3. Yes using Retired is OK...
4. Use my Monster Mash Badge/Graphic in your post and a link back to my blog.
5. Add your card to the blog hop then put the code on your post.
6. You can enter as many times as you like, just has to be a new card and post.

The Blog Hop is every Monday for 12 weeks. I am picking a favorite every week for 12 weeks and then out of the 12 picking a Grand Prize winner. The Prize is $25.00 in new cool stuff from the new Holiday Mini. The winner will be announced on Halloween.
When you post my badge please add a few words about about the blog hop. I had to Delete a few entries last week because they did not follow any of rules so maybe mention that their are a few rules. Thanks :) 
I got the idea from a card that Ann Marie had made a few weeks ago (click here to see her card) with this same sketch. I just changed and added a few things to make it more my card. I just really loved the big scallop for the Big Shot, and when I had seen her card I just got that Bigz Die that day so I had to make one.

I just love this Bat Punch, I so wish Stampin Up had not retired it!
