Pumpkin Kitty.

Day six of the Cat Lovers Hop already and I'm racing in with my last entry. 
The pre-coloured  image and the sentiment are both freebies from TLC Creations web site . As soon as I saw this image I knew I needed to download and use.  I have simply mounted onto orange and then black cardstock and made a base card using terracotta cardstock. Mounted the sentiment with 3D pads for a bit of dimension and my card is done. I think the picture does all the talking.

It has rained constantly here today. The pond has overflowed and the bottom of the garden looks like the rivers of babylon so I haven't been able to lay the new path/step to the summer house. Frustrated as I can't get the furniture installed. The new rug is laid out in the lounge flattening out from where it has been rolled up under the car in the garage and the table and chairs  are still packed flat awaiting assembly.

Here is a preview of the rug though.

Anyone who knows me won't be surprised by the colour and can probably  even guess what the colour of the furniture will be.!!!

Gorgeous Halloween creation. You have captured everything perfectly. I feel you with the weather, it's such a pain when you want to be getting things done. I haven't been able to get out to our garden house all week!!

We over here in California are dreading the fires and wishing for a good drenching rain. Everything out our way is so dry. But I do love the kitty with his pumpkins and ghost, ValeryAnn! The sentiment is a delight. Autumn is always my favorite season; the evenings cool down and the nights are nippy, and the cats want to cuddle instead of crying at the door to go out. :-D

Hee hee...that kitty looks like he's wearing printed pajamas for Halloween! Love this fun card.

Kathleen said...

The colour of the rug would make a great background paper. A great Halloween card, lovely images and colours, like the fancy cat.

Gorgeous card :-)
Seems like you need some sort of drainage system there - especially if the UK weather is going to continue to be wet !!!!
Sorry you can't get in the Summer House yet. Nice rug - I guess maybe the furniture with be a Terracotta colour ... that'd look cool :-)
Thank you for purring along to play at SUYP cats Challenges.

What a fun and cute card, and I just love the costume the kitty is wearing :) Sorry about the rain - it's raining here today as well. Hopefully your new summer house won't be taking on water with all the rain! The carpet looks perfect :)

Gorgeous halloween creation Mrs A and I love your rug!!! It's really nice here today thank goodness but when I took the dogs out for a run the ground was so muddy huggles Sue x

Brenda in IN said...

This kitty all dressed up is the best! Such a fun card. We, too, had unrelenting rain all day long yesterday and it was a chilly rain. I love your rug and can't wait to see this all put together. I hope that happens soon.

Carole J said...

I am so sorry, Mrs A, I left the wrong comment above and needed to delete it and place it on the previous post. Silly me :(
I love that this is a free, pre coloured image! One would never guess! It looks fabulous and the matting and layering make a sensational, autumn greeting card! Just lovely!
I'm in the NW England and we've had two days of torrential rain, but the sun is shining today (Sunday), so I hope you have the same and get your garden sorted!
Thanks for playing along in the hop. It has been a pleasure looking at your projects. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving lovely comments! See you next year! xx

I love that image , I'm gonna go over and get it ! So cute ! It has kind of a vintage look to it .

Very cute cat. Hugz

Sue D said...

Great image for Autumn.

Janis said...

I am guessing pink for your furniture, but the rug has other lovely warm hues in it, also!!
Your card is adorable. Love that patterned kitty. I have a particular weakness for patterned animal stamps!! The pumpkins and stars are delightful and a spooky ghost has somehow materialized in the scene, too. Better call the newspaper...they might be interested in that manifestation!!! Lovely autumn card!!

Have fun with your summer house when the weather clears. We are expecting more photos!! Thanks so much for playing along in the #2019CatLoversHop!!!
