myasperations 10-28-22

I haven’t had much time during the last few chaotic weeks at the office to do much stamping. However, I did take some time last night to make this card with the adorable freebie digi that artist Beccy Muir provided with the October Challenge at Beccy’s Place. (I added a pic of the sweet freebie, protected with a WM added. To get your own copy, and to nab a wonderful patterned paper with spooky kitties, stop by Beccy's challenge HERE.) I remembered making an interactive card at a class over 20 years ago that involved pulling a rabbit out of a hat. THAT that was the inspiration for this sweet card. (When I have some time I’ll make a tutorial, but for now, just enjoy the little cutie!)
     I did take several photos of the card to show the cats movements. The final “pose” occurred when I accidentally bumped the feline and tipped him to one side of the pumpkin shell. Don’t you think the head tilt makes him even cuter? So fun!
