I just sorted through my Halloween card stash to figure out what else I needed. One of the big holes in my stash was a card for my youngest niece - only 9 years old. She is just a fireball - I saw this image and I just thought it fit (not the grumpy part, but the quirky look of that cat in a tutu!)
What I didn't think fit for her were the sarcastic sentiments in the Grumplings in Costume stamp set. The sentiments are laugh-out-loud funny and sarcastic - but I didn't think she'd understand them, so I found a Happy Meow-loween sentiment that would work.
What's not in the picture is that I'm going to put the cat on a Mini Wobble Spring so it pops up when she takes it out of the card. Her big sister is getting this card with a slider so I wanted some action on this card too. I like the wobble springs but I find they just stand out too much to photograph well.
I hope to see you playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
