You're How Old???

It’s challenge time again at Pattie’s Creations and this fortnight we have a favourite theme…Anything Goes! That’s’ right crafters it’s time to get out your images (as it is a rule at Pattie’s that your creation must have a digital or stamped image), papers and embellies galore…in other words go wild! And then come on over to our challenge blog and show us what you got.

Now normally I’m not a big one for doing any Halloween cards, but Pattie has this incredible image that I just had to play with. So I didn’t make a Halloween card…but, I did use a Halloween image. Here’s what I came up with

The image is called Halloween Cat on a Fence and of course the first thing my warped mind thought of when I saw it, was that the cat was freaked out by how old someone was. The continuation of the sentiment on the inside reads…."Is that in dog years? Try to have a Happy Birthday Anyways." Yes, my family and friends sense of humour is as warped as mine. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the inside and it is too dark here now to do it, so I will try to get one tomorrow to show you. I went very basic with this one as I wanted the image to be the center of attention. The black cs is by Bazzil and the white is some that I picked up from WalMart. I added some steel grey flat backed pearls by Recollections and a bow made with some ribbon in my stash. I coloured it with my Staedtler pencil crayons and oms and made the clouds going over the moon with my SU pastels. I cut out the sentiment using my Nestibilities scalloped die. I outlined the sentiment and the moon with my steel blue gel pen. The sentiment is my own.
Now it’s your turn and we can’t wait to see what you have in store for us. Head on over to Pattie’s Creations Challenge Blog to check out all of the rules, prizes and the incredible creations my team mates have done.
Thanks for visiting….Charlene
