Trick Or Treat Bats...and some staples!

So...back already with a quick card.  I actually made this with paper from my scrap bin! Every single piece!!! I ran the orange cardstock through one of my Tim Holtz embossing folders and then inked the edges with black ink.  The "trick or treat" sentiment is an SRM sticker that I framed with orange and black punched squares.  The bats are cut from a scrap of what I think is echo park DP.  The challenge today on SCS is to add staples to your card.
Here is a funny story about staples.  Over the years my mom has also gotten into stamping.  I remember the first time I used staples on a card in one of my classes and she just about died!  She couldn't understand why anyone would want to ruin a card by stapling all over it!!!! I always make sure NOT to send her a card with staples.  I on the other hand, think that staples on the right card, add just the right touch!

Hugs,

Emily

Cracked me up! I am a troubler maker and would probably have to send her staples on cards!
