Big Cheesy Kitty Grin!

It's like eating a bag of potato chips! I can't stop at just one! But this is the last of the Caardvarks sketch challenges . . . I swear . . . mission complete! I had to think about this sketch for awhile. You know let it stew, carry it around in your pocket for a few days and look at it every know and then. I knew I wanted to make a Halloween card and I wanted to make it rather simple and get away from all of the layering I've been doing lately.

So. . . my first step was to look through my Halloween stamps. When it comes to Halloween images, without a doubt Hocus Pocus and Spooky Expressions by Anna Wight are my absolute favorites. Hands down, no if's, and's, or buts! I love everything about them, especially those big cheesy grins!!

I don't think a lot of 'splainin is needed on this one. I did distress the edges of the oval, pp, and cardstock. The background was stamped with Versamark and I added the little rhinestones underneath Mr. Cheesy to cover up an ink smudge :0). As a final touch I used a white gel pen to make Mr. Cheesy's teeth a bright pearly white - he just cracks me up!!

Thanks for stopping by and hope all your smiles are big and cheesy! :0)
