Halloween in August????? for The Paper Players

Hello everyone: I've been seeing a lot of Christmas in July cards lately, I actually made THIS ONE  a few days ago, but I really wasn't thinking about Halloween yet, I mean, this is still August but, well.....October will be here very soon so, I kind of wanted to get you guys in gear for your Spooky card making season. This is the card I made for The Paper Players , this little fellow has a big dose of Spookyness on his paws for sure.
Most times, when I get a new set of stamps I stamp a few images to have at hand just in case I need them, it saves me a bit of time, usually the coloring is done fast, if it's not to involved, this little guy was colored quick with SU markers. The image is from Whipper Snapper Designs, I went to look for it but couldn't find it, I hope they didn't discontinue this stamp, I really don't like when they (who ever "they" are) get rid of awesome and endearing imagers like this one, spooky as it might be.
I didn't put any ribbon or twine or bling on this card, I figured the pretty die cut frame was fancy enough, and I didn't want to crowd the image with a sentiment either, I think you can tell this is a Halloween card.
So, I hope you like it, as always, I thank you for visiting and for your comments, I love reading them and I will answer any questions you might have about the image, the way I colored, etc.
This is the sketch that inspired this card.   Till next time, keep on stamping.
Maria.

  3. Hi Rosemarie and thank you for your sweet comment. It was a riot to color this little cat, I kept smiling just to imagine the dyer situation he is in, that bat that landed on his tail and all the other spooky things flying around him would have given me a fright for sure.
    Thank you so much for visiting.

  4. oh my this square card is awesome! Look at that fabulous black diecut contrast on your card stock! Great job with your layout Maria! Sweet image I love the expression on this cat! I lived near a cemetary when I grew up, in fact the town paid me to mow the grass so cemetarys are not spooky for me I guess that's a good thing!

Last year and the year before I was a Faery, super cute, with my wings and a feathered mask hubby and I got in New Orleans a while ago.
