'Fraidy Cat !

     I have a ton of Bugaboo Stamps images and I treasure every one of them.  I especially love the ones for Halloween and when I can combine Halloween with a feline... well.  lol  Today's card is yet another CAS effort with a hand-colored background for the scene and a fussy-cut tree.

Sketch and inspiration came from AAA Cards.
It must have a "moon."
Colors came from Kit and Clowder.

     The image is colored with ProMarkers, as is the background.  The moon is a circle die cut and the flying witch is from a bit of ribbon.  Both the image and the sentiment are printed directly onto the card base.  The tree is hand-cut from CS.  The markers did bleed through the CS a bit so I added a liner to the inside of the card.

     We're half way through the week and I'm settling back into my regular routine.  It's so nice to be able to awaken in the morning, make coffee, and stroll into the craft room for a few hours of creating with no other obligations to interfere.  Yawn, stretch,... ah, yes, my time is once again my own!  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

How cute, Connie! Poor kitty is scared of witches and I don't blame her/him. It's a fun, fun Halloween card.

So glad you are enjoying being home, Connie (there's no place like home!). I could hear you stretching, sounding just like a coo-ing kitty! Your promarker colors are delightful, and your poor fraidy cat is cute as can be! xo
