OCTOBER'S HERE Birthday Card

Hi Everyone! Hope your week has been going great.  My mind has been swirling with poems this week, so I made a couple of cards to get them out of my head!  LOL, sometimes I'm just wacky that way.  My Hubby keeps saying "Call Halmark", but this week I think "Shoebox cards" would be more appropriate! Here is a fun little birthday card that is Halloween inspired:



I found the cutest little cat stamp at michaels, for a buck-can you believe it!  So I made the card around it.  I used the Plantin School book cartridge for the circles. Paper by K & Co, Recollections, MME, and Coredinations.  Baker's Twine in Lilac, charcoal, mandarin and honeydew; VersaMagic ink in Midnight black; one Heidi Grace metal dot, zots, and my own Original poem.  This card is being entered in the following challenges:
So Many fun challenges to join.  Just love how much creativity there is out there in Blogland! And YOU all are part of that wonderful creativity!  Next up, I am posting a Hunting Card with a very fun poem...so take a look!  HUGS to you all!
