Let me tell you the story first.
This week our destination is Lexington, Kentucky. If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to Angelique? Angelique went in for emergency surgery just before Labor Day. It was nothing life threatening but the surgeon ended up making a mistake during surgery which resulted in a second surgery. She ended up being in the hospital for three weeks and believe it or not, has at least one more surgery to go! How on earth did that happen?
She has a long road ahead of her and needless to say, needs a little teapotter love to get her through what lies ahead! Angelique is an artist and a professional editor by trade for the University of Kentucky. She loves to make crazy little bat girls out of paper and her Twitter name is Paperbatty. She loves Halloween and loves Spookey stuff! Here SCS friend's nickname for her is Batty or Battypants.
Angelique also has and simply loves chihuahuas. Hers are rescues and she has one that dances for her! If you want to play along, the information is HERE.
The Challenge - Bring spooky, bring scary, bring spiders all hairy! Bring bats, witches hats, big ole black scary cats! Bring a carved pump-kin, bring those things that go bump-kin! Bring ghosties and goulies and Halloween goblins. Bring gnarly trees, bring trees without leaves! Bring all that is scary but more important than that, bring a Halloween Bat! Bring a Halloween card! You guessed it! Bring all that is spookey! And one more thing, rumor has it that dancing chihuahua's are da bomb when it comes to a Halloween Teaparty! I have even heard they are the entertainment of choice for bats! Do any of you know any dancing chihuahua's you can bring along?
