 Supply List:
 Entered into:
  • The Alley Way Stamps Inspired By Challenge: I went a different route and was inspired more by the colors than the images. The oranges, the creams, the browns, the greens, the yellows, and the black.
  • Simon Says Stamp and Show's favorite challenge. It's my favorite because I love kitties, especially the big kitties. Rawrr :) I had a lot of fun coloring him and making a scene for him.
  • Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog Joy's eerie inspiration board. Again, I used the color palette for my inspiration.  :)
