Kitty Pumpkin Basket

There was a flurry of activity from Sandra Caldwell immediately prior to her 2 week birthday vacation and now that she's back, there are loads of new digis being released in her Etsy Shop (babycakesdnd) this week.  Today I'm showcasing #1753 Pumpkin Kitty Basket, purrfect for Halloween, Fall or Thanksgiving, don'tcha think?   Well, because I'm partial to Halloween, I made a mildly spooky (note the bats) Halloween card using the sketch from the Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  I've added some texture with burlap and a pretty sunflower sticker from JoLee's at the base of the Pumpkin Patch sign (dies from Cottage Cutz.  The picket fence is a Martha Stewart punch (my spooky one gave up the ghost, so to speak, BOO HOO!)

Here's a closeup of #1753 Pumpkin Kitty Basket.  I've colored with Copics, used a Spellbinders Deckle Oval to cut them out and inked it lightly with Frayed Burlap Distress while they were still in the die.

And here's the sketch.


  1. Oh, my gosh! This is fantastic! Until now, I wasn't even thinking of Halloween or Fall cards, but I am certainly in the mood now. When I leave here, I'm off to buy that cute image! Love, love, love this card!

  2. Great card and I love the burlap! Thank you for joining us at Jo’s Funday Friday Challenge. Good luck with your entry.
