Don't Be A Scaredy Cat

This black cat who hangs around outside my back door is taking all the credit for the accordian card I made with her likeness on the front. However, she won't be able to tell you that these images are from Sizzix dies, and a Martha Stewart bat punch.

The card dimensions and design are from Michelle -- (by the way, Michelle has "The Bargain of the Century Blog Candy" so be sure to stop by to check it out before Halloween) you can find her blog here and you can see the card tutorial here. This card is easy even for scaredy cats!

Martha, beautiful card --- and cat! Such fun, and of course the cat would take credit --- my black beauty does, too.

I just love this card! The black cat is great and the pumpkin border, so cute! Nice papers finish it off perfectly.

That real kitty is a beauty. We had an all black cat for years, he was a real sweetie.

Thanks for your comment on my DT "audition" cards, I appreciate your blogging friendship so much.

Gotta check out that tutorial! Thanks for the link.
