atc cards--as in, they open . . .

Some silly Halloween atc mini cards--these are atc
size (2 1/2 by 3 1/2, except for the parts sticking over
the edges!) using Basic Grey papers, Altered Pages images,
some rich textured German Scrap, inks, crayons, tulle, and
silly jokes! Not sure where the Mr. Batty die cut flew in
from, but there he is . . . the riddle is on the outside,
and the atcs open to reveal the goofy answers! I'm thinking
these would be great to swap, or as little treat bag tags,
or as just a little Halloween greeting.

Rogue Redhead Designs--Think Outside The ATC (going out
of bounds, so to speak!)
Getting Cricky--Halloween
Send A Smile For Kids--Fall or Halloween, kid friendly
Hmm, mine are goofy enough, but the pics are little creepy . . .
Sew Many Cards--Halloween
Crafty Purple Frog--Fall into Fall

Are you ready for this?

Nah, Halloween isn't a fave with me--unless we're talking candy!

JeanFB said...

Oooh, these are fabulous! Oh-so-spooky and wonderfully silly. Such a great idea to make them open to reveal the answers... which, by the way, I'm dying to know. I'm thinking the last one is "trom-"bones". Can we see the insides, LOL!!??

Jean, you are right for the skellie riddle!

The insides are pretty plain, just the answer and a Happy Halloween, with a little crayon.
