A Pink Witch and her 3 Black Cats: Day 19 of 31 Days of Halloween

Greetings once again! In my efforts to keep my posts short-ish…I have combined a couple of things I needed to do into one card. Over at the Bombshell Stamps Blog today, our guest pinup for the month of October, Paula, has challenged us to “Think Pink!” Do anything, so long as there’s some pink in there. Easy peasy! I already had my little witch all colored up. But, today is also the Simply Betty Stamps Day 3 of 12 Days of Halloween…”3 Black Cats.” Ok…a witch needs her black cats, doesn't she??? I have 2 myself! :)

My witch was made by using Bombshell Angel and the Halloween Digi Costumes. My kitties, you may recognize from 2 days ago…they are from the SBS stamp, Witchy Wednesday. Yup, I broke out these little cuties again!

The fa-boo-lous sentiment stamp is from Stampendous! I colored my witchy with my watercolor markers. And I stamped the kitties on black paper with Frost White ink from Color Box.

I made sure that the “Best Witches” was showing. One little kitty is very shy though…I hope he’ll come out and play! Wanna see my black cats???

Cats 061 

This is Tomato. Isn’t he stunning? He is hypnotic, and quite the fraidy cat! He is all black.

Zucchini & Tomato Oct05 010

This is his brother, Zucchini. He’s very sweet…but is also not a fan of being social. They were born in a vegetable patch…which is why they have those names. When I adopted them, there was no way I was going to change them!

So those are my boys…before I had my babies. I do hope that you will visit the Bombshell Blog (and perhaps play along?), as well as the Simply Betty Stamps Blog. And of course, all of the Wicked Bloggers are listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spook-tacular day!

HA! Cabbage Patch Babies! I love them! adorable. the 2 male cats we rescued were a bit Ferrel so not as sociable as most male cats would be, but they warmed up a LOT by the end of the first year we owned them.

Your card is FAB, great stamps and colors!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
