CAT-titude, No Lion, and Day of the Dead

Happy Friday, everyone!  Thought I would share a few cards I've made the last couple of days.

I'd originally intended to enter my CAT-titude card at CAS(E) this Sketch! but I missed the deadline. :-(  Here's the sketch I used, though!

Challenges Entered

~Scrappin' 'n' Chattin' October Monthly Card Challenges--Cat

Supplies Used
~Art Projects for Kids "Cat in the Hat" digital image

~My Craft Spot "Cute Critters" sentiment stamp set

I have no Hispanic heritage, but I absolutely LOVE the sugar skulls that come out during the Day of the Dead celebrations!  I used the sketch at Cheerful Sketches Challenge and a freebie image from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons to create my Day of the Dead card.

I really like the plays on words with the sentiments in the My Craft Spot "Cute Critters" stamp set, so I thought I'd use it again!  I used the sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches but then realized I missed the deadline. :-(
