Oh, the Horror of It!

The Gingersnap Chestmut Challenge this month is
At first I didn't want to make anything, cus I was afraid of scaring myself too badly,
but then, I thought, what the heck, Halloween is almost over and I'm not done with it yet.
I made these.
Are you horrified?
A couple of deets:

The bat arrived in a lovely package from my friend Sonya, and I covered it with microbeads. 
 It seemed like the right thing to do.

Doncha just love that woman from RetroCafeArt?
And the skeleton?  Well I was chewing this yummy green apple flavoured gum the other day and I looked at the wrapper and thought to myself,
"Self?  You should make something outta this."
So I stamped the Tim Holtz skeleton on it and the rest is history. 

I don't recommend it though, VERY flimsy and hard to work with.

Great gum, though.

And that,
my fine frightened friends, is my
Horror Story.
Have a spooky day.
