card by Leigh
My grand finale inspiration for the 31 Days of Halloween Hop and Cat Lovers Hop for you today is a FURRtastic card bristling with spooktacular eye candy in every corner featuring Cats Galore, Carved Skelly Cat, Kitty Pumpkin Hat, Batleigh Bats, Party Balleigh Monster, Ghost Balleigh Monster and the Vampire Balleigh Monster set๐ŸŽƒ
All aboard the Skelly Cat Train of Fun....its time to go Trick or Treating๐ŸŽƒ

  Everyone is out this Halloween and ready for a haunting good time๐ŸŽƒ
All our precious kitties that have crossed over are smiling down upon us tonight๐Ÿ˜ป
 I used Cats Galore to create my magical sky and coloured it with Hickory Smoke, Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide inks then splattered with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide spray and  Tarnished Pewter Distress Stain spray.
Last October we lost our precious kitty Mango so he’s watching over the evening spooktivities here as the Mango Moon๐Ÿ˜ป  Mango was the inspiration for my Kitty Pumpkin Hat design๐Ÿ˜ป
Teeny tiny fussy cut Bram, Betsi and Grim Batleigh Bats are having a FaBOOlous time flying around giving everyone a good fright!
 Carved Skelly Cat is gleefully pulling the train of creepy cute fussy cut Balleigh Monsters and grinning Jack o’ Lanterns all coloured up with Copics and white Prismacolor pencil highlights.
The Grass border cut file by Paige Evans and the Train is a modified cut file by Emily Dyer are from Silhouette Design Store and I applied silver Spectrum Noir Midas pigment ink to the edges.  I welded the Train to the silhouette of my Carved Skelly Cat for one continuous cut.  I matted my Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide coloured "Happy Haunting" senti and the main scene panel onto black glitter card and then mounted everything onto a white folded card base I made from heavy weight cardstock.  I adhered the Train and all the Balleigh Monsters and pumpkins to the card with black foam tape and the 4 pumpkins to the grass with more foam tape for 3 levels of 3D fun!
What a spooktacular time all the monsters and beasties are having๐ŸŽƒ
 To finish off 31 Days of Halloween here's a fun video for a look back at all 31 makes so grab your candy and enjoy the show๐ŸŽƒ
Don't forget to shop the Halloween Sale and grab the Cat Lovers coupon above before the Witching Hour is over at LeighSBDesigns Etsy BOOtique!

 Before I sign off 31 Days of Halloween 2020 here's a peek at one of my indoor Halloween dioramas this year!  This is one of my 7" resin Tonner Sad Sally dolls trick or treating in a haunted graveyard๐ŸŽƒ

Have a spooktacular and safe Halloween๐ŸŽƒ

Sorry I missed the last few days :( The hurricane did a good bit of damage and we lost power for ages. Then that morning before power was restored the hospital called to tell Noel her covid test was positive. So between cleaning and nursing I am a bit swamped! But I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the blog hop and thank you for the inspiration from you and Val! Happy belated Halloween!

  21. Awwww....I was thinking about your dear Mango the other day, Leigh. I remember how hard that was losing him during the Hop. :( How sweet to have him watching over the Halloween festivities with the Skelly Cat Train this year. Love that you used your new digi in the sky background...gives a fun spooky look!

    I am finally on the homestretch of visiting and commenting on all the awesome cat projects!! I have had a lot of fun looking at everyone's work!! Thank you so much for sponsoring us again and going cat crazy with us during the #2020CatLoversHop!!
