Kitty Kat Boo - CCC #73 - Bow + Blog Candy

Hi friends and Happy Tuesday!  I hear from my Northern friends that they are having cold weather and even snow.  Here in H Town we're still in the 80's, but the weather person says that's going to change soon.  One thing I miss about not living in the North is the changing color of the leaves.  They look so pretty all orange, yellow, and gold.  And the kids are all getting ready to go out Trick or Treating on Halloween!  That was always a fun time in my little home town.  Not like it is these days.  I thought I'd celebrate the spirit of Halloween with my card this week for Creative Card Crew. Our theme this fortnight is Bows!  See, super easy. 

Materials Used:

  • Image - Lacy Sunshine - Kitty Kat Boo
  • Sentiment - Cut from a piece of designer paper
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up, Basic Black
  • Designer Paper - Graphic 45 - Happy Haunting
  • Accessories - Cricut Halloween Die Cut; Martha Stewart - Fir Branch Punch; Spider and ribbon from my stash; Recollections – Flowers
  • Copic Markers - E19; E40, E41, E42; R01, R23; N4, N5, N7; V01, V06, V15; YG61, YG63, YG67; YR000, YR00, YR02, YR07; YR14, YR18
 We have two great sponsors this fortnight --

Prize: $10 Gift Voucher
Prize: 3 Images
 So, now it's your turn.  Hop on over to the Creative Card Crew challenge blog and bring a bow along with you however you want to make it.  This time you could be one of our winners.  Hope to see you there!

So, now that is taken care of, we're on to a fun part of this post.  Not only is it Tuesday, but it's also my BIRTHDAY!  That's right!  And to celebrate instead of receiving gifts, I want to give a gift to one of my followers.  All you have to do is leave a comment with a Happy Birthday wish and you will be eligible to win this prize.  You'll have until October 30 to enter.  Have fun!
