I Miss You

It's hard to believe that this is my final week as a guest designer for the 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge Blog.  What a quick month this has been.  I've had so much fun working with these ladies.  They are fantastic!!

This week's challenge is a Halloween theme.  Since I don't celebrate Halloween, they graciously allowed me to use a pumpkin/fall theme.  I love this cute little image of the kitty peeking out from behind the pumpkins.  I had to color her gray in honor of my Sasha. {In case you've noticed, most cats I color are either gray or yellow/orange.  That's just the current cat population here. *smile*}  The image is from Clear Dollar Stamps.  My version is the outline image that you color.  However, when I looked on the website, I could only find it in the pre-colored version.

I used the October sketch from The Craft's Meow for my card design.  After coloring my image with copics, I cut it out and popped it up on the embossed panel.  I matted the image panel with a SB Lacey Circle and backed that with a SB Labels 3 die cut.  I used my trusty brown Sharpie marker for the faux stitching and added my sentiment on a little tag suspended from the ribbon.

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific, Recollections
Patterned Paper:  Basic Grey (Picadilly)
Stamps:  Clear Dollar Stamps (cat with pumpkins), Misc (I miss you)
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black), ColorBox Fluid Chalk (Chestnut Roan)
Embellishments/Tools:  Spellbinders (Circles Small, Lacey Circles, Labels 3), CuttleBug Embossing Folder (Swiss Dots), Marvey 1" Circle Punch, ribbon (Morex), eyelet (Oriental Trading), baker's twine (The Twinery - cappuccino), Sharpie Fine Marker (brown), Fiskar's Border Punch (Apron Lace), Copics (C0, N1, N3, N5, N7, G17, YG03, YG05, R81, YR07, Y35, Y38)
