The Pumpkin Cat

     It's Friday so that means new releases for A Day For Daisies.  This week Tammy has some Vintage Halloween images and you can find them all in the ADFD store.

     I chose "Pumpkin Cat" for my card.  I used the largest oval Nestie to make my pumpkin and hand cut the stem and leaves.  I wet and then wound some green hemp cord around my craft knife for the curly cues.  Kitty is colored with Copics.
     Our texture challenge at ADFD will run for another week if you'd like to join in the fun.  We'd love to have you join the ADFD groups at Paper Craft Planet, CDAC, or the Crafter's Cafe.  You'll be able to see a lot of cards posted by the members of the Monthly Kit Club DT there besides those from the regular DT.  Talented bunch of ladies I get to work with.  :-)
