Batty for You Card for A La Card Monkey "Anything Goes" Challenge

Happy Halloween!!!
I just had to make another card with this set just to say good by!!! Stampin' Up is retiring this set :( and you all know how much I love Halloween! "Batty for you has been in the Catalog for a long time, I should go back to see how many cards I have made with this set! I even did a "Batty for you Stamp Camp a few years ago but, never did get those pictures up on my blog.

Stampin' Up is also saying good by to Concord Crush the purple color on this card. The sad thing about that is, they did not replace it with another Purple!! Why???!

I used markers on the stamp for the sentiment. Gee I really love that bow! I hot glued it on. I have been using the hot glue so much more, I got tired of my buttons and bows falling off my cards. Oh Plus Rosettes hot glue is the only way to go with them.

I used the white smooch spritz, I had to get the light just right so that you can see it.

You are not going to believe this!!!
It's My Desk!!

This is the part of the room that I do all my work. Most of the time you can not even see the top of my desk. I am very organized but my desk is mostly in Chaos!!

WOW! Some of you that have been to my house, will be shocked by this!!! lol

This is some of my little drawers that are on my desk. I started making labels for everything in my stamp room. It really prints big so I don't have to have my glasses on to see the print. I was having a hard time remembering where things were, so this has really saved me some time.

My Space is just getting more full by the day! I have 3 card racks now in my room and they are all full!!! The one in the picture holds over 250 cards. I have another rack that is just Halloween cards I think it holds around 100.

That is my cat Vickie, she is looking at my chair I set in. She is always there by my side ready to grab my ribbon!! That stool is there for when I take the pictures of my cards. I sit there and in the white box I have my card and take the picture. You can kind of see that the top spot is empty, that is my Photo box. I should have taken a photo of it.

Thanks for looking

Oh my goodness, what a cute Halloween card! I like the spider web EF and the shimmer you added. And what a clever idea to just use one of your empty cubbies for your photo box.

Great job on the card, and what a wonderful space you have for creating, mine isn't as big, but still it is a space. Time to start clearing out some stuff now, hahaha

I love your wall of stamps - I bet they are very inspiring displayed like that. My husband would kill me of course if he saw that my stash rivaled yours. Mine is kept behind closed doors!
