Halloween Googly Ghouls Card for Retro Sketches #19

OK... I had to make a Halloween Card!!

Just got this cute set in the mail yesterday. It comes in a set of 6 stamps: Mummy, Witch, Bat, Spider, Frankenstiein, and the word Boooo. If any of you have seen my cards or been to any of my classes you know I just love using googly eyes!!! I use them on animal cards and most of all Halloween.... so I think Stampin' Up was reading my mind when they came up with this stamp set.

I put three bats instead of buttons from the sketch. I used the new SU color "Summer Starfruit" for Franky's face.

I love retro sketches and knew this sketch was for me and some Halloween fun. Click Here to check out there Challenge Blog!

Here is a close up of the Batties!!! lol I am having to get stronger and stronger glasses, so when I do my pictures and get to see my work up close... I am thinking "not too bad of a job cutting out bats for a blind person" lol

This picture just makes me laugh... lol Look at his eyes just bulging OUT! Love the Googly eyes!
