It's Weena

Here's a stunning image from Sweet Pea artist Joanne Schempp called Weena. I love how she is blowing bubbles with the cat's images in them. This stamp image is just amazing. I don't think it has to be a Halloween theme card, but I am a huge halloween card lover, so I turned it into one.
I actually didn't start the card that way, even when I colored the image, that was not my intention at all, but I found this wonderful shimmery purple paper and these adorable black cat decor, which of course reminded me of a great saying that Sweet Pea stamps has "When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleem, may luck be yours on Halloween." (Plate #67) Here's a closeup of my coloring of Weena, you can compare this to the artists coloring to see how different she looks.

I think she would look beautiful in other colors too. I just love her striped knee high socks, I think I am starting to dress like the girls in these stamps now! Hmmm.... Does art imitate life or does life imitate art?

If you saw my new sidebar image, I just got a discount code for buying from Sweet Pea Stamps, when you purchase, the 10% off code is SPSHolley!! Woohoo.

I will have to remember the code. I will be buying from them again that is for sure. I love the image. I think it is perfect for halloween or even just for fall. (Simply because of the pumpkins I associate it with fall.) I love the way you have it and the sentiments.
