OWH Sketch #90

Hey there Bleeps (blog peeps!)

Today's card is for the challenge sketch over at Operation Write Home. Sorry the pics are a bit dark, I was too lazy to clean off my usual place where I normally take my pics, LOL!!! My scrapbook room is a total mess, ugh.....I guess I'll pick it up now, LOL!!!

I added a dab of Crystal Effects to the kitty's nose and put some black crumbles of card stock on it....kinda like my own flocking! I masked off a punched circle and sponged the pumpkin ink all over the background..... Oh, and don't worry.....I mail out one large box of my cards to OWH a year.....that way I don't feel like I have to reach all the deadlines on time (WOW! Jeez, now I sound completely lazy, HUH???? My excuse is I have 5 kids at home, LOL!!! Does that make a difference at all???)!!! LOL!!! So anyways, this will go to some soldier's child next Halloween, I'm sure!!! ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fab week!!!;)

Girl, I think five kids at home gives you an unlimited pass on most anything, lol! This card is adorable, I love how you masked in a moon behind the kitty! Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

Last year I made Christmas cards that did not get sent in til this year because of stuff at home. Your stuff is always great and this is no exception! Love the moon and masking to get it. TFS!!!

Hi Holley, love this cat silhouetted against the moon, it looks very spooky! I'd say having 5 kids at home makes a big difference lol! xx
