     Hey, the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop starts today
 and this is my first project for it!
This is year #5.
Haven't played before and interested in joining?
Click HERE.

     Ready for another silhouette card?  This one was pretty quick and simple, and qualifies as a CAS card, I'm sure.  Have you noticed a fascination for cats in these silhouettes?   Back in the days when I was still buying rubber stamps instead of using digis (a looooong time ago!), I think I bought every single stamp I saw that had a cat in it.  Of course, when it comes to Halloween stamps, cats are easy to find, especially black cats which makes silhouettes a natural.  :-D

Colored with ProMarkers
Cut with a Sizzix die
Stitched black ribbon from Crafty Ribbons
Bow tie bow added to the middle cat

I'm hopping over from the Cat Lovers Hop today. My daughter's roommate has a cat that always sports a bow tie. He would fit right in with your scene.

I love this! I think when you're a cat lover (like me), every cat is adorable, and we can see PERSONALITY in every silhouette and every piercing stare! Love your kitties' green eyes and the pretty embossed background. Thanks for sharing this with us at Penny's!

Cute card for Halloween and the blog hop! I really like the embossed bg. :)

Have a great day!

Arianna Barbara said...

Beautiful Halloween card!!!

Sharon said...

I thought the bow tie was a ribbon for a girl jack o' lantern! It's always fun when you can look at an image and see that image in two ways.

Surekha Galagoda said...

Dear Connie
Lovely CAS card and i love the color combo too.Blessings

Vivian Foo said...

Love those black silhouette images.

NanaConnie said...

Now that you point it out, Sharon, I can see it that way, too. I almost like it better your way! :-D

Karenladd said...

What a fun image. I saw the black cats right away, but it took me a minute before I realized it was also a cat Jack-O-Lantern!

Leslie said...

I absolutely LOVE your kitty card! So adorable! This is my first year participating in the Cat Lovers Hop - we have eight fur babies (Poopie, Molly, Jack, Walter, Tigger, Milo, Dusty and Mocha Latte) that we love to the moon and back!
