Orange is not just for Hallowe'en

But this first card is a Hallowe'en card using a couple of different shades of orange and my new Hallowe'en cat stamp from Stampin' Up. Love all the different words that make this cat shape! This card is for Create with Connie and Mary's Challenge #223 for the sketch, Papertake Weekly's Challenge to make something spooky, SUO Challenge #56 to use an animal and for ColourQ's Challenge #159 to use these perfect Hallowe'en colours! (Must not be naughty this week and add any other colours in case I get told off again :P Oops there's Very Vanilla in the DSP, think I get away with it???)


And here's my little Hallowe'en puddy cat.

And my next orange card took me ages to get to. I wanted to use this colour combo from CC397, but got the idea of using pumpkins stuck in my head, but the colours just wouldn't work with a Hallowe'en card for me and I don't do harvest or fall cards, so I was stuck until I came across the sketch for Viva La Verve's October #2 Sketch and voilà, orange flowers were born! Now why didn't I think of that earlier?! This one is also for A Passion for Papertrey's Friendship Challenge for their return to the world of challenge blogs! Have missed doing these challenges!

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
