Cat Lovers Hop 2018 Day 5 Halloween Pinwheel

It's Day 5 of the Cat Lovers Blog Hop at Her Peaceful Garden and I'm hanging in there.  And looky, looky, it's another project that involves REAL stamping from one of the sponsors of the Hop, Stampendous. WooHoo! I've made a Halloween pinwheel using a discarded piece that I found on one of our walks last year around this time.  Of course it's been laying on my table since then.  I used the kitty face stamp and die from a set by Fran from 2015, sadly no longer in the shop.  I glued a Halloween straw into the pinwheel where, I assume, the original had gone.  One of my artist made felted kitties looks pretty excited to be holding it while I tried to blow on it to take a video, but try as I might, I couldn't manage that to work so you've got to take my word for it that it spins.

Here's a closeup of the pinwheel with the stamped and cut out kitty face from the set and the bow.  I stamped with Memento, colored with Copics, added googly eyes and a little witch hat sticker from JoLee's.  The bow was stamped on patterned paper and cut using the coordinating die.

Thank you Stampendous for sponsoring the 2018 Cat lover's Blog Hop at Her Peaceful Garden!  There's still another day to hop and you can comment through Sunday to win! FAQ HERE and sign in HERE.
