Happy Halloween!

I hope you're having a beautiful day today.  We are definitely having fall weather and right now it's gloomy with a light rain - yuck!  This is my first Halloween card of the season.  I LOVE Halloween.  Halloween is my daughter's birthday.  She's grown now but I still love decorating for Halloween.  My friend, Dolly, doesn't much like Halloween.  So Dolly, you may not want to look at this card lol!  I apologize for the picture not being the greatest but since it's dark and dreary, this is the best I could get.


I used Stampavie's "Cat in Pumpkin Costume".  I think this cat is so cute.  I colored her (I decided it's a she cat) with my prismacolors and gamsol and added a little glaze and stickles.  I used my Martha Stewart spiderweb punch and added some buttons and pearls.  This paper is from my stash that I've had forever and I have no idea who made it. 




Thanks for stopping by!
