You've figured out by now - I LOVE Halloween!

Isn't that the coolest pumpkin thingy - look over to the right if you haven't already noticed it. You can get your own virtual pumpkin to carve just by clicking on mine. You'll be taken to the lovely site to carve and grab your code. Okay? I'll be looking to see your Jack-O-Lanterns! Here's today's postcard - a little more elaborate than most. A few friends may recognize the adorable cat - I used him on a card or two in the past. I clipped the original out of the Washington Post book section one Sunday (a few years back) - he's a black cat and cute as can be. Reminds me of my cat, Frankie.
I know it's a blurry photo but you can see how handsome Frankie is now can't you?
Anyway, I clipped the illustration of the cat out of the Post (i wish i could credit the artist because he is fabulous) and made copies at the Staples. I used a copy to create this transfer using a EF Design Colorless Blender Art Marker. The background Harlequin and Mesh stamps are both by StampinUp! and the flourish stamps are by Autumn Leaves. The wonderful "trick or treat" sentiment is by Purple Onion Designs.
I'm sure my son will enjoy this postcard as he and Frankie are best buds.
Oh and a reminder - you really should play that tic tac toe game I mentioned in yesterdays post. It's fun!

Love this postcard too!!! I can see why you liked the cat...it does look like Frankie! P.S. I tried the tick-tack-toe and was surprised!

You know you're evil don't you??? I remember this cat very well. The first time you used him was with a packing tape transfer and it seems the card (or one of the bunch) included some of that MM screen material. So why can't I remember where I put my cell phone or my glasses??
I like those swirls. I think I might even have those or something similar. Wish I would use them.

BTW...that canvas stamp sure does look good over the harlequin stamp. This card is cool.

Love the post card, but Frankie is so much more handsome than the guy on the card. Love that POD trick or treat stamp! Perfect with those flourishes.
