Two Old Bats October Halloween Challenge

Can you believe we have had a year of fun already at Two Old Bats?
If you played along with us all year long you should have plenty of 
Halloween cards to send out!  I know I now have 24 Halloween cards
all ready to go, quite a good feeling to be that far ahead
and if you played along with us year round you have a bunch too!

We always have a fun inspiration board and it's just that,
You can create anything as long as it IS Halloween themed! 

I find it fun to always try and use something off the board,
that's the challenge for me!
Today I used a new and never used before Papertrey Stamp set 
Boo Black Cat!

When I first saw this stamp set I just had to have it as that cat
seemed to call to me!
I inked around him with some orange and purple  Distress inks, then added the corner
spider web, the sentiment and the tiny stars and spider are all
part of the stamp set.
The background paper if you look closely has little black cats all over it,
it is an OLD 2009 Basic Grey EErie paper pad that I am trying
to use up, I'm getting close as I now only have 5 sheets left!!

Being Halloween month, why don't you join us at 
Two Old Bats
but remember we go year round!!

Entering the following challenges:
Crafting Happiness .... Halloween
NBUS .... Never Before Used Schtuff

What a great idea to ink around this scardy cat in Halloween colors ... what a fun & fabulous card my friend!

Oh my goodness!!! This kitty looks like my Ivy, she's a black, short hair sweetie with bright yellow eyes and a very unpredictable disposition.
When she gets spooked, she looks just like this little one, every single hair on her body is standing up, she stands on the tippy toes and arches her body, walking a little on her side, it's hilarious and we never know what spooked her, LOL!!
Great background paper and that corner spider web, with that little spider.....Hmmm, maybe she spooked this kitty, LOL!1
Fabulous card, my frien.
Stay healthy and safe.

That's a great Halloween card, Diane! I love that the little black cat looks more scared than scary! Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell (p.s. The colors over at Color Hues are orange and purple!)

Such an awesome cat stamp. I love your choice of background paper and the corner spider web detail. Definitely a fun Halloween card!

Leslie Miller said...

Hahahahahahaha! I laughed out loud when I saw this! I love the cat so much, and your blended background and the Eerie paper. I'm still trying to use up my pad, too, but you're doing much better than me. I super duper love the sentiment! Thanks for the giggles, Diane!

Bonnie said...

This cat is AWESOME, Diane! LOL, he looks scared to death and ready to pounce!

Fran Wing said...

Hello, Diane! What a great card! I have 3 feral kittens I'm feeding, so I recognize that look! I also love the blended oval background. Xoxo, Fran
