Candy or Fish?

    OK, so my fur-babies and I were discussing Halloween the other day and I was reminding them that when the ghoulies and goblins come for Trick or Treat, it really isn't necessary for them to try to make a break-out rush through the front door; they are house cats, after all.  HoneyBear, who has the attention span of a gnat, had only one question -- could they expect fish for Trick or Treat this year instead of candy?  So much for my plans to eat all the Halloween leftovers!


     Image from QKR Stampede, colored with ProMarkers, and then die cut with a die from Spellbinders.  I found a scrap of dp and die cut that for the frame around the image.  Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, glitter from Stickles, and leaves from Jolee's.

     Challenges:

     I hope your weekend is relaxing and creative.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

LOVE that kitty! Great coloring, and the background & frame complement the image perfectly! That greeting is wonderful, too. Love the conversation you recounted that you had with your cats. I can totally relate--we've got 3 house cats ourselves! Thanks so much for sharing!
