The moon laughs and whispers...

Good morning! 

How about a little Tiddly Inks love today with this sweet kitty from the Set of Kittys? His crazy fuzzy fur totally reminds me of my crazy Smokey Joe so of course I had to turn him into a black cat for this Halloween card. This time around I grabbed the Halloween Scene stamp from CC Designs and did a bit of altering to make it fit the design I had in mind. I did that by stamping it three different times... once for the moon so that I could shift it to the left and twice to piece together a longer fence. I also got creative with inks and a stencil from Simon Says to lay the ground work for the entire scene... if I'm honest it took me three tries to finally get it right because I was having issues. As I was tossing attempt number two in the trash I was thinking why oh why didn't I just grab my beloved pattern paper? LOL! But when it all finally came together I was so proud of myself for having stepped outside my comfort zone and tried something new. :)

Later gators!
