Jingle Belles: Batman Smells!!

Hi , it's me again! The challenge for Jingle Belles last Friday was so appropriate for April Fool's Day.... Jingle Bells: Batman Smells!

Those DT ladies are challenging us to make a funny, quirky Christmas  card to celebrate the lighter side of the season! They posted some amusing ( and fantastic) samples to get us chuckling and hopefully inspired. But me? I wa so stumped... I have a ton of Christmas stamps but they all seem to fall short of funny! I checked out the submissions for inspiration ..... and while I was smiling , I still didn't feel any closer to coming up with an idea!!!! ***grrrrrr**** . My favourite was June's Gingerbread Man 's Bite Me card! My card was inspired by her fabulous creation!!! Go check it out!!!! I wanted to participate in this challenge because I have a somewhat twisted sense of humour!!!!!

I had to really search through my Cricut cartridges to find this one! I found this guy on a rarely used My Community cart. I used liquid applique to outline his arms and legs and for the "bite" I simply  used my scallop circle punch.  The sentiment is from SU! , which I  heat embossed to mirror the outline on this fellow.
So, once again I'm so late in posting for this challenge, but better late than never ( is that becoming my motto lately??????).
I'm already looking forward to the next challenge!!!

Until next time.... happy crafting!!


  1. Oh, I love this, Candy! I was wondering what you were going to do when you said my gingerbread man inspired you. I have that SU stamp...brilliant to use that here :) Thanks for the mention; you are a super sweet blog friend. Thanks to Jingle Belles! I may not have "met" you otherwise :)

  2. haha...love the scallop bite:)

  3. HAHA! this is a BRILLIANT take on june's hilarious and clever idea--which i loved, as well!!! i also think it's a FABULOUS example of "what to do when stumped" as well...i am most impressed by your refusal to give up even though out of your "comfort zone"! well done you, on all counts!!! ♥♥♥

  4. Never, ever would have thought of putting that sentiment on this card, but it totally works! Love it!

  5. very creative!! well done for making this fun idea into your own! love it

  6. I love that one of the other cards inspired you ... what a fun and clever holiday design ... thanks for stepping outside of your stamping comfort zone & joining our jingle belles mayhem.
