Gurlee Girl Halloween Cat

It is fast approaching my favorite time of year. The other week when I was cleaning and rearranging my crafting room, I came across my Christmas and Halloween things and have had the urge to use my goodies I got on clearance last year at the end of the season!

Don't you just love the Gurlee Girl Halloween Cat from Chelsea at Crafting Life's Pieces. Chelsea is so talented. Just go to her blog and see her awesome creations. Another one of my blogging friends is on the design team as well, Bonnie from Sassy Scrapper. Her creations just make me drool. So it was a natural inclination to participate in the Crafting Life's Pieces Sketch Challenge. Here is the fabulous sketch for this month:

Here is my interpretation of the sketch. The haunted house is a Sizzix die cover in Martha Stewart Glitter. Last year I picked up this package of Martha Stewart Halloween Glitter. The black glitter was in the pack along with several other colors. The black is called Licorice and boy is is awesome. It shines black, yellow, and green. My paper is from K & Company. The "too Cute to Spook sentiment is now at Walmart in the $.97 bins in the scrapbooking area. It's perfect isn't it! Don't you love that cute spider sticker too! The moon and bats are also a sticker along with the jack-o-lantern.

This is my matching envelope. Did I mention how much I love this Haunted House die. What a fun card this was to make. Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are inspired to make some fall and Halloween cards.

I think I did tell you already on SCS how much I love that haunted house and the glitter sounds just perfect for Halloween. You are really getting me in the mood for Halloween much fun in my neighborhood with hundreds of people coming for treats.
You've put so many of the 'just right' embellies into your creation...spiders, bats, big ol' moon, on and on. Just fantabulous!!!!
