Cat scratch fever

LOL!
Perhaps that title is a bit too dramatic for sweet lil Evie but I just had to do it. ;)

So I've got one more Lil Lolita to share with you this week and as I mentioned above, her name is Evie. Not being a huge cat person, at first I was a bit iffy on how I would use her on my cards. But when Kellie challenged the Pink Ladies to create a card where everything except the image was in color that really got my wheels turning. True, I may be jumping the gun a bit on making a Halloween card this early in the year but I thought Evie lent herself purrrrrfectly to the theme... especially by coloring her in the monochromatic grey tones. This was something that I haven't done before and I gotta say it was pretty darn cool! I love how Evie looks like she's from some old black and white cartoon this way and I can totally see myself revisiting this coloring technique in the future. :)

Well, I'm ready to go enjoy my day off! Rain or shine I've got a lot that I want to get done... so wish me luck and I'll see ya tomorrow! :) Supply list:
