October Party Cat

Hello Everybody!

Today I am sharing a bright and bold card with a Halloween Party vibe going on. I just imagine this cool cat hanging out with friends at an October party! The bespectacled kitty and bright color combination was inspired by the current challenge at The Heart Desires, Challenge #17!  You can get the details for The Heart Desires Challenge right here: http://theheartdesiresblog.blogspot.com/search/label/challenge

October is the BEST months for cats and kittens! The Cat Lovers Hop over at the Her Peaceful Garden Blog is giving us great ideas, inspiration, and giveaways all week long! You can get all the details and link up a kitty themed project right here: https://herpeacefulgarden.blogspot.com/2017/10/the-2017-cat-lovers-hop-and-link-up-is.html

Here’s the fun part! Just leave a comment on this or on ANY of my posts during the Cat Lovers Blog Hop and you might be the lucky winner of my Kitty Pocket Letter, pictured below.

This kitty pocket letter is completely empty right now, because I want the recipient to receive a surprise! But I have to say, I filled it up with all its goodies and doodads and embellishments today, and it looks amazing! Every now and then, I like making and sending pocket letters and fill them up with whatever I want! Maybe I can encourage you to give one a try and not worry one bit about all the “rules” regarding these fun projects.

Today’s blog is brought to you by the kitty, Omar Kitty! His name is Omar, of course, but we always call him Omar Kitty! When I craft, I usually work on a number of projects at the same time, pulling out a big pile of dies and loading up the platform and cutting a number at a time, then arranging them in neat little piles for their cards. Whenever I do this, Omar Kitty decides he is going to help, and always does, plopping himself right on top of my tiny papers and tools and then I work around him. Did I tell you he likes to help me do the laundry too!

Thanks so much for joining me today!

I did a little variation of the “stack” and lined up my colorful pumpkins in a row, and added a large sentiment. The question is, Who is scaring who?

While you are here, I wanted to update you on the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop. I had announced in my blog that the winners of the Coffee Nut m&M’s and the Starbucks gift cards would be announced on October 2nd. However, I realized that it’s going to take a while for all the hoppers to make their way through all that great coffee themed inspiration, so I am going to extend the comment period a few more days. I shall announce the winners here on my blog on Monday, October 10th! Thanks again to ALL of you who have played along, left me some very uplifting comments, signed up to be a blog follower, have been a supportive blog follower all along, and take part in this fun coffee hop every season. I am thrilled by your kind support!
