Happy Hallowe'en

The end of another month and ever closer to the end of another year. Where does time go? Why do the days seem so much shorter when you are on the downward side of life's hill? so many questions, so little!!
Todays cards feature my favourite animal, The Cat, of which I have 3, but they, too, are on the same side of the hill as me, and Charlie even further down. I was up at 5.20 this morning cleaning an accident off the carpet, poor thing he sometimes loses the plot aswell as his bowel control..Ah! well!! that's life.
I digress, onto the cards.
365 Cards Day 245 - 'It's a Matter of Inches', to use an inchie on your card or the inchie to be the card.

I made 3 inchies with images from a rubber stamp by Inca called 'Cat Blocks'
Stamped using Versafine Onyx Black
All card and paper are from the scrap box
Image coloured with ProMarker 'Sandstone'
Embellishments by Daisy Hill & ek Success
Border punch - Martha Stewart 'Embossed Petals'
I used the sketch from :-
Sketch Saturday #75 as it was perfect for this.
The card also fits the challenge for
Daring Cardmakers - 'Getting Punchie With It'
