Scaredy Cat............FMS6


True Confession #1:  I cut the cat image apart from the words "Scaredy cat" because I knew I didn't want them stamped together.  Too late I realized I was going to snip out the cat to stick on the fence in front of the moon.  Then I could have just used my black marker to stamp the letters. That would have been much less stressful than trying to make sure I didn't snip away cat toes or part of the letters!

True Confession #2:  I did not cut apart the bats before I stamped because I knew I was going to snip them out to stick on the moon and I learned my lesson - see True Confession #1.

True Confession #3:  That cat's not the only one afraid of bats!

EEK - great card! And the only reason I like Bats is that they eat mosquitos. But they are still freaky little animals... lol

I love this card and your true confessions! The cat silhouetted against the sparkly moon is wonderful.

I have never seen a bat outside of the zoo exhibit here. But given my aversion to flapping, flying things I know that I would be scared of them too!

Wow what a fabulous card Linda!!

Linda, I love how you start my day!!! Great card, too :-). I love the clean lines developed by this design team... fun challenges.

We see quite a few bats in Georgia, and some people actually place bat houses in the back of their yards to attract them. They are interesting to watch at dusk, flying around lights to scarf up all the bugs (particularly mosquitoes as Adriana mentioned). Not my cup of tea, however!

Heehee, whatever way you did it, this is one cool card....I LOVE that moon!!! I do not like bats in my house---that happened a couple of times----but they are good creatures to have around! They eat LOTS of bugs. But again, I do not want them near my person!! ICK!

This card is just so adorable! It makes me happy just to look at it! I've had bats fly into the house before and it reminds me a lot of a scene from The Great Outdoors so... I'm with you on the bat thing!

Dawn T said...

hahaha! I always see bats flying around the street lights here when I walk! Your card makes them shine! Just adorable, as usual!

I appreciate all the efforts that went into this card, my eye goes directly to the moon and all that its holds! A great halloween card!

Cindy Hall said...

LOL! I don't know what's better, the adorable card or the true confessions! What a fun post! Great card. I have such a hard time with Halloween cards and you make it look like a stroll in the park. TFS! P.S. I'm afraid of bats, too!

Oh this is fabulous Linda! Love that big sparkly moon and I can't believe you fussy-cut the cat AND those bats! Whew, I hope you had a good lie down after that one, lol! Fantastic card, my friend!

Tui Nathan said...

So loving this card Linda!!!

Tara Bilbao said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE this puuurrrfectly scary card. I, however, do enjoy bats - but not as much as your lovely creations. I love your perfectly edited details of the small mating reflected in the bow color and just a tad of dsp. AND THAT BOW! Amazing card.

Jen Timko said...

Ok, your confessions are hilarious (and so good to know that others go through these processes)!! Your big sparkly moon perfectly highlights the kitty and the bats. Now, that cat needs to get to work and take care of those things...

Jen said...

Oh boy Linda! I love Halloween cards and this one is at the top of my favorites list! That big old sparkly moon is perfect to show off the cat and the bats!

Christy Q said...

Loved your true confessions!

The colors you used are fantastic and I love how you used the border punch for the fence - so clever! Love that silver glimmery moon!

Colleen Dietrich said...

Like this one bunches! The glitter moon is wonderful behind the black cat (is that my Cristabel??) and bats.

Anne Marie said...

You make me smile with your "true confessions"! What a fun post! I have to admit though...you had my attention at that glamorous Glimmer Paper! *sigh* SO much fun!!
