Eek!

Hi, everyone!  Today is my birthday - Yay!  I plan to enjoy my day!  I'm still on a blog break but wanted to pop in and remind you all about the Cat Lovers Hop that starts tomorrow.  Janis over at Her Peaceful Garden has organized the hop for all of the cat lovers!  I plan to be here each day for the hop! I am all ready with my blog posts. I also plan to do some blog visiting this week to try to get caught up on what I've missed. Still no update on the contractors but I am suspecting it will be delayed. I'll keep you posted!

I hope you can join the Cat Lovers Hop!  You can read Janis's FAQ and guidelines here. I made this card a couple weeks ago with the hop in mind, but after reading the guidelines, I am not sure it qualifies. That's okay! I love how it turned out so I wanted to share it anyway.


I started by adding strips of Halloween-themed washi tape on a diagonal and then adhered Poppystamps Spider Web Border, die-cut in black, along the top of the washi tape.  I trimmed the parts that went beyond the edge and added them at the bottom of the washi tape.  I die-cut one of the Poppystamps Playful Kitties (two kitties come in the set) in black and then heat-embossed it with Black Opal embossing powder (The Artful Stamper) to give it a sparkly glow.

I stamped the Newton's Nook sentiment in black.  To finish off the card, I added three spider stickers (EK Success Sticko) along with googly eyes.

I would like to join the following challenges:  Allsorts Orange, Purple, Black 1/3; Artistic Inspirations AG Halloween UE; Beccy's Place October AG UE; Blessings Ink Amusing Challenges AG No Digis 1/2; Brown Sugar AG 1/2; Cards in Envy Trick or Treat 1/3; Cardz TV Designer Challenge Halloween Card 1/3; Come and Get It Use Orange 1/3; Craft Rocket Spooky 1/3; Craft Your Passion AG 1/3; Crafts 4 Eternity Halloween 1/3; Crafty Calendar Halloween 3/3; Crafty Catz Monsters Spooky or Cute 1/3; Crafty Creations Don't Be Blue (no blue or card to cheer) 1/2; Crafty Girls Creations AG 1/3; Creative Fingers AG 1/3; Creative Inspirations AG Option Sketch UE; Cute Card Thursday AG UE; Cuttlebug Mania Orange and Black 1/3; Deep Ocean Halloween UE; Die Cuttin Divas Picture Inspiration 1/3; Dies R Us Ghoul Friends 1/3; Digi Designs Include a Pumpkin 1/3; DL.ART October Linky UE 1/day; Eureka Stamps Halloween 1/3; Fan-Tastic Tuesday Orange and Black 1/4; Fussy and Fancy Orange, Black or Purple UE; Get Creative Halloween Colours 1/3; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Jo's Scrap Shack Halloween 1/3; Just Keep on Creating AG UE; Kitty Bee Aloha Friday Halloween 1/2; Left of Center LOC Theme UE; Lil Patch of Crafty Friends AG 1/3; Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday 1E; Love to Scrap AG 1/3; Not Just Cards AG UE; One Crazy Stamper Christmas Halloween Fall 2/5; One Stitch at a Time AG with Halloween Colours UE; Our Craft Corner Halloween 3/3; Penny's Paper-Crafty AG 1/3; Pile it On Cute and/or Spooky UE; Pixie's Snippet Playground Snippets used for die-cut cat and spider web 1/3; Poppystamps Trick or Treat UE; Quick Creations Halloween 1/2; QKR Stampede Halloween 1/3; Quirky Crafts Halloween and Autumn Colours 1/3; Robyn's Fetish Anything for Halloween 1/3; Scrappy Moms Stamps Happy Halloween UE; Simon Says Stamp Monday Monster Mash 1/5; Sparkle N Sprinkle AG w Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder and/or Flocking UE; Sweet Stamps October AG UE; The Craft Barn Halloween UE; The Crafter's Cafe Black, Purple, Orange and/or Ghosties (I have all) 1/3; The Outlawz Saturday PAL Halloween 1E; The Paper Girls Halloween 1/3

  45. Happy Birthday (a little late) to you, Kitty!!! Hope your day was purr-fectly lovely.

    Your spider and cat card is cute and spooky and fun! Eeek....I hate spiders almost as much as I love cats. Ha. The spiders with the googly eyes are just perfect for your card....As is the way the cat is just ignoring them. I have only ever had one cat that was interested in spiders at all. Most of them just look the other way.

    By the way....I am not going to be too sticky about the cats being absolutely the focal point of the Hop cards, I only mentioned that in my guidelines to avoid someone just gluing on a cat to make it fit the hop. I LOVE how you almost always manage to get a cat on your cards!!! And you have a whole stripe of cats on this card, too. :)

    Off to see your other projects......
