Happy Everything

     Bright and early on a Sunday morning and another great challenge starts at Pile It On.   Our theme this fortnight is "Fur" -- use anything that has fur to make your creation.  We have a wonderful sponsor, Oak Pond Creations, who generously provided images for the DT to use.  The one I used is called "Trash Cat Lamp Post."   I took the opportunity to do a card that covers all the fall holidays and laments those who are far from home during them.


     The cat is colored with ProMarkers and die cut with a rectangle die.  I used two different polka dot papers and one solid black CS to make layers framing the image, all of which have been in my stash for a while.  The ribbon was also in my stash and the bow is one of those I make by the dozens and then keep in my stash for later use.  The leaves seemed a natural embellishment for a fall card.

     Challenges:
Aud Sentiments
Cards in Envy
Clear It Out
Crafter's Cafe

Crafts 4 Eternity
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper

     I hope we're going to see you playing along in our "Fur" challenge this time.  You have two weeks to complete a project and get it entered.   Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Very fitting sentiment to go with your chosen color scheme. Love the papers with spots and the effect of the uncolored parts of the image. Great job!

What a cute idea and of course a perfect sentiment to go with the non-coloring of the pumpkins and lamp post. Love the expression on that cats face! FUN and cute, cute card.
