Good Morning!  Is anyone else glad it's Friday?  Whew!  What a week!!!!!  I am so ready for the cool weather of Autumn,, and my favorite holiday, which is Halloween, so I've been breaking out the Halloween papers and crafting away.  Did you know that there's a new Halloween release out at The Scrapping Cottage?  There are some wonderful new designs for 2011, and we've got some fabulous dies from last year to play with, as well.  That's what I've been playing with, and I've combined several dies from several of the releases this year for this card.  

 In creating this card, I used the following Cottage Cutz dies:  Knickety knack Cat 3x3, Ghost and Bat 3x3 (both designed by Peachy Keen Stamps, and include stamps), Airplane with Banner & Sign (designed by My Little Shoebox), and Circle With Eyelets.  I added some sparkle to this design with the glittery paper, and I shadowed/shaded the cat and moon with a little sponging.  To give the cat a little more dimension, I cut two cats, one in black, and one in light gray and glued them together, offsetting the gray just a little bit.  This gives an awesome shadow effect, and was a technique that was shared on The Scrapping Cottage blog, by my fellow designer Erika in this post a few days ago.  The sentiment was stamped with the "Boo" stamp, which is included in the Ghosts & Bat die/stamp set.

I'm so glad you could spend some time here today!  I wish you a very happy Friday, and a blessed and beautiful weekend!
