Yeah!  It's October! My favorite month of the year!! I LOVE making Halloween projects, so expect a lot of them this month!  Believe it or not, I actually made this card in August and have been saving it to post in October. LOL  I thought this kitty with the red eyes was perfect for my first October post.
Background *paper is from Echo Park's "Happy Hauntings" kit.  Black gingham ribbon from Joann's.  I also tied some orange twine on the bow just to add more orange to the card.  Pretty simple card, but I love it!
HAPPY HAUNTINGS Cricut cartridge KITTY page 33 cut @ 3 3/4". Keypad overlay Row 1, Column 6. gotta love her bat necktie. :)

Have a fun October! Be sure and come back Monday to see the brand new Paper Playtime project for our new challenge schedule, project themes, and new Design Team. Exciting changes!  BOO!  :) Janis
