Halloween Cat

Good evening and welcome. Hope all of you had a pleasant weekend - we did. Great weather. Thought for sure we'd get some rain yesterday afternoon, but it was a no show. Did we ever get some today, though! We had to go out for an appointment, and it was raining then. When we finished the appointment and left that building, it really was storming, got quite nasty. I was thankful I had a good driver at the wheel.

Been trying to work on some Halloween cards. Got some images ready, but only one made into a card so far. Here it is. I believe this is a Stampendous cling image, corners are Martha Stewart corner punch*, and the bat is also MS punch. Used a gelly roll on the punkin eyes after going over the black with a black WoS pen for some glitter. Not sure if I like the gelly coloring, but it's done now. The camera really picked up on that.


We've got some of the Fall stuff out on the front porch, and will try to share some of those pictures in the next post. Cleaning gig is still going on, but progress is being made, which makes me feel good. Other family things interrupt my chore schedule, but the cleaning takes a back seat to family every time.

Ya'll have a good evening, be safe if you're in the 'weather path', and come back when you can. Big hugs, and God Bless.

*This punch is actually for decorating the corners of paper - not cutting out pieces. Used scissors & trimmer to cut them into outcuts that I could apply to this card design.

  5. This is really fun. I love the background and the funky pumpkin. I like the gel colour because I think it sets off the mouth etc... so it works well.

  11. Ooh, spooky! Love this pumpkin and the scary cat! Glad you didn't get the storms too bad. We saw there was a tornado in Spartanburg. That's a bit close! We had a good rain but not bad at our house. xoxo
