A Pumpkin Bear and Sweet Kittens

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday! :) I hope you are all having a wonderful week. It's been crazy busy for me trying to catch up with everything after being gone a week, but I'm hanging in there :) I have two cards to share with you today so I'll get right to it :)

For my first card today, I decided to use this adorable little pumpkin bear from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs (LSHD). This particular pattern is called "Baby's First Halloween", but for my card, I just left out the cute little pacifier (it's really cute, but just didn't fit with the theme of my card). I cut everything out using SCAL 3.0 and my Silhouette, then shaded around everything using chalk ink. I did some doodling with my white gel pen, then put everything together. The face is from Peachy Keen Stamps (tear bear face parts stamp set). Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from MME. For some finishing touches, I added some swirls in the corners, which I cut out using an EK Success punch, a bow, and a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts. The cute sentiment is from My Creative Time. What do you think?

For my second card today, I decided to use these two adorable cats from My Scrap Chick (Chubby Little Cats pattern set). I cut both kittens out using my Silhouette, put everything together, and then did some doodling with my white gel pen. I created my card base out of SU cardstock and my DP is from DCWV. I added a bow and rose from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches. The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. This card is for my sweet friend Pati, who took such good care of our two kitten fur babies while we were on vacation last week. Thanks Pati!

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you enjoyed my cards. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Don't forget to stop by this Saturday, October 22nd, for a LSHD Halloween Blog Hop. Have a wonderful day! :)
