Newton's Nook Inky Paws: A Stylin' Halloween Kitten

This is the sad story of a kitten whose mom did not have plain white sheets...


But isn't he just stylin' in his plaid sheet?!

I've been challenging myself to use new stamps before they are put away.  But in the last few weeks I have extended my personal challenge to use multiple stamps in a set.  Using one stamp from a set is a big step for me - but when you let yourself think about it - that's a very expensive card!  This was a set that worked perfectly for my personal challenge.  I had used the forest animals in the set on these cards so wanted to use the more domestic critters!  Here's the cat; there's still a dog in a tutu that's charming but I haven't quite figured him out yet!!

Beside the personal challenge, I'm also playing along with the Inky Paws challenge at Newton's Nook.
