Happy Meow-oween!

Hello, everyone!  I would like to extend a warm welcome to my newest follower - Crafty Pearly - thank you for joining me!  And welcome to a new Bloglovin' follower - Tina Rathbone!  Nice to have you here!

Today I am joining Darnell's NBUS challenge!  It's her fifth challenge, and I haven't missed one yet! If you haven't heard about this fun challenge, please head over to djkardkreations and read all about it! Darnell has lined up some awesome sponsors!


I've used two NBUS items on today's card.  First of all, I was the lucky winner of last month's challenge over at Gecko Galz and won a fun shopping spree in their store.  One of the items I chose for my prize was the Halloween Night Digital Collage Set which contains this adorable retro cat in a pumpkin image that I used on today's card.  I fussy-cut and popped it up with foam tape.


If you'd like to win a whopping $25 shopping spree at Gecko Galz, head over and join their challenges! This month the theme is Tricks and Treats and I'm joining in myself with this card!  They have so many gorgeous vintage and retro images in their shop and they offer a freebie collage sheet with their newsletter every month (sign-up on their left-hand sidebar).  Thank you, Gecko Galz, for the awesome prize!


My second NBUS item is the Tim Holtz Sizzix Halloween Words embossing folder. I've had this for over a year and this is the first time I've used it!  I embossed just the bottom angled panel - I was inspired by my friend Debi B at That Might Look Good on a Card and decided to CASE her cute cards.  Thank you for the inspiration, Debi!


The sentiment is a clear stamp from Newton's Nook Designs - Newton's Perfect Pumpkin. The patterned paper is from Doodlebug Ghouls and Goodies, and I added three sequins, mounted on orange cardstock and then onto a white card base.

I would also like to join these three challenges:
  1. Crafty Gals Corner Embossing 2/2
  2. Great Impressions Trick or Tree-t 1/3 (TOP 3)
  3. Send a Smile 4 Kids Cute Fall or Halloween 4 Kids 2/3

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!

I've never fully realized how many cute, cool and fun cat images there are out there! This card goes into the category of cute Halloween cards, I think the clean layout looks great with the pop of orange from the diagonal strip of paper.
