Well it's been awhile....

Hello my friends... my apologies for the lack of recent activity on my blog, but life has been hectic. Among many other happenings, we have finally moved my husband's business to a new location (it's a pet store of course!) But I did have a chance to get away for a weekend at a craft hideaway up on Camano Island, a truly beautiful place where we were pampered while we crafted all weekend long! I will be sharing some of my creations from that weekend with you over the next few days, but tonight I have another Shirley's 2 girls challenge to show you.... and of course there are some tails involved!


So here is my creation for the S2G twisted Thursday Sketch Challenge. The twist this week was to use the word BOO, so I reached for one of my new arrivals from the recent Halloween release. Can't ya just hear this trio yelling "BOO" from their perch on the fence? Napo the cat (short for Napolean) watched me make this card, and gave some help with the ribbon too;)

This was a very simple card to make. I just found the Eerie paper pad from basic grey yesterday, and thought the tree background would be perfect for this card. I stamped the kitties on SU white paper and colored with copic markers, then used nesties to cut the circle of bats. I finished it off with some SU ribbon, and of course some "bling" with the jewel brads. Napo and I had lots of fun making this card!
