Never be afraid!

Here's an awesome image from Ike's Art.  Their blog is having a wonderful contest called All About the Night.  I thought this great image was just perfect.  I added some great paper that was covered in bats.  As you may know (or have heard me mention), Austin is home to one of the largest bat colonies that live in the city, about 1.5 MILLION bats fly out in a huge mass every night from the congress street bridge.  It's an amazing site.  When I had family her a couple weeks ago, we went there, but it did get very dark before the bats were emerging so I am afraid the kids were not as impressed as they might have been in August.
Drop by the Ike's Art Challenge blog and join in the fun!   This great stamp is called Franknella.  She was offered as a freebie on the challenge blog, so if you don't follow over there you should.  They regularly give away awesome images that you can make fun cards like this with.

This card won

Cheers, Holley
