Hi there, friends! I had the most fun day yesterday in Manhattan. My awesome friend Justin and I paid a visit to The Ink Pad, had some lunch, then headed over to the Mama Elephant stamp show. I promised myself I would only buy a few things, but who was I kidding? Later on that evening I met up with my son David and his girlfriend Ally to walk around a bit and then have some dinner at Swine NYC. I know, not the most attractive name, but the food was amazing.
Today at The Paper Players, the wonderful Claire is our hostess and she has chosen Happy Halloween as our theme challenge. As soon as I saw the kitty in the challenge badge I knew exactly what I would be making.
I purchased this stamp set on sale after Halloween last year and this is the first time I'm inking it up. I love the adorable kitty in a pumpkin and had lots of fun coloring it, though I needed to do a couple of practice runs first. I wanted to get the shading just so and I'm happy with the way it came out. A few more simple layers and some sequins, and this card was done.
I'm also playing along with the Anything Goes challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog.
