A Happy Kitty Halloween

Wednesday was Mike and my official, unofficial Halloween. We went to Disneyland for the Trick-or-Treat Halloween party. Mike, myself, and Sirius were dressed as Dipper, Mabel, and Waddles Pines (respectively). It was super fun to be dressed up as a family, to spend time with Mike, and to have fun with everyone while we trick-or-treated. It really renewed my excitement for the holiday, you know?
So, excitement, yes, and then there was all this reorganisation going on still in my space. The table is cleaned off, but there's still random piles on my floor, there's still stuff in Iris cases, and there's still a whole empty Alex unit to be filled. I tackled paper on Thursday and realised, hey, I have WAY too much of it! It's now up to two Expedit cubes, which I don't approve of, and three more paper collection packs arrived in the mail today! One of them was for scrapping this year's Halloween (didn't need a whole collection pack, or anything really, but it's pretty!) and another is a nice, generic Christmas collection from Carta Bella. I have some very cute Christmas stamps to use this year.

Anyway, long story short, too much paper means I *have* to use some. I haven't been scrapping much at all this year, so cards it is. I had this little cutie on my desk, coloured up last week, so I got him on a card. He's from That Craft Place which, I have to say, I'm not totally pleased about the quality of the stamps. They seem to have just been drawn and scanned, no clean up, no proper digitization and so they have a "dirty" scanned look to them. This one even had specks of what I can only assume were eraser effluvia on the image, which was quite small too. BUT I managed to Photoshop it enough to get it to work well enough, obviously. Coloured up with Copics and pencils over a few days of messing around. I have a few more stamps like this, super cute, so I'm looking forward to colouring them and sharing them with you over the next few remaining October days.
