It's Batty Tilda

I'm Batty for You!  That's what Tilda has to day today.  Isn't she adorable?  Here's a fun card using a Magnolia stamp.  Now that I am starting to show some Halloween cards, I had to pull out this fun image of Tilda dressing up like a bat. I am sure as many of you may have heard before, Austin is home to one of the largest bat colonies in the world.  It's truly a site that is unbelievable when you are standing on a bridge and watching a million (yes, million) bats fly out at night.  It almost looks like smoke from a distance but when close enough you realize what those tiny creatures are.


If interested, look up Mexican Freetail bats in Austin TX and I am sure there will be a ton of on line photos and videos posted.  A really great thing about them is they primarily eat mosquitos...LOTS of them.  Yeah, bats!!

Project Materials:  Cardstock (Bazzill Swiss, Neenah, AC); Image (Tilda-Magnolia Stamps; Saying-Kraftin Kimmie Stamps); Ink (Memento, Colorbox Chalk); Die Cuts (Spellbinders Nestabilities, Provo Craft); Adhesives (Pop dots, Glue All); Color (Copic markers);
