Trick or Treat Kitty for Paper Players #166

Hello and Happy Sunday to you! Today finally feels like fall here in South Texas and what better way to get into the season then with a Halloween card? This week at the Paper Players, the lovely and talented Nance is our hostess with a fun "Trick or Treat" theme challenge.
For my card, I actually CASE'd myself. Haha! I made another card with the Frightening Feline stamp and I changed up the colors and patterns a bit to make it more "traditional" Halloween.  I guess I may have cheated a little bit, but I haven't had a lot of extra time this week to spend in the stamp studio. Do you sometimes use projects you have already made as inspiration for new projects?  Sometimes I need a little "kick" to get the mojo workin' again.
It's tough to see in the photo but the kitty is embossed in black for added shine. The Champagne Glimmer paper and some bling finished everything off. I hope you will join us this week over at the Paper Players. The challenge is open until Friday October 11th, 2013 at Noon (PDT). Be sure to stop by and visit the rest of the Design Team to see what they have created for the challenge:

Before I sign off, I wanted to share a new photo of our little foster puppy Sabrina. Well, actually her new family decided to name her Willow...but I'm having a tough time remembering to call her that. This little lady is going to be headed to her new home in Minnesota this week. Her new family is super excited to finally meet her. We are going to miss this little bundle of cuteness! :)

    Love and Hugs

  2. Anne Marie, I case myself all the time! I love cat stamps so I love your kitty Halloween card, and what a sweety you have there with Sabrina!

  5. Anne Marie, this is too cute...I was just new to SU last year and did not get this stamp! Wish I did a fantastic job with the layout and colors.This card made me smile;) Thanks for the sweet comments last week (and are too kind, my dear)

  6. I can't decide which is cuter--your sweet (not frightening) feline card or the adorable Willow! Love 'em both and I totally hear you on case-ing ourselves. I do it alot! Love it! Hope you had a calmer week...((hugs))

  7. OK... the card is great... but seriously.... as soon as I saw the photo of Willow I was completely in love and forgot all about your fabulous card. What a gorgeous puppy. I'm so glad she is going to a loving home!

    Now... on to your card. Your cat is awesome and I love the embossed background.

  8. Super cute Halloween card, Anne Marie - but OMGOSH that Willow is stinkin' ADORABLE!!! :)

  9. Love your card so much. The word cat is great for Halloween. Love the colors you used too.
    Now on to that puppy! OMGosh my hear simply melted when I saw her. And I'm sending you huge hugs for fostering. I just think you are awesome. All my best to you and that sweet little Willow. Hugs, Curt

  10. Not being a "halloween girl", I can't believe that I really like that Halloween cat. I could actually see myself making cards with it (plse don't tell anyone!). And speaking of liking .... omg, that little Sabrina is a total bundle of sweetness. Wishing her a life of health and unconditional love with her new forever family.
