It's almost Halloween so I wanted to share this sweet little cat with you. My parents have a black cat just like it, except he is completely black- black hair, black nose, and even black inside his ears. He is a rescue cat who was abused. The woman who brought him in was named Phyllis, so the shelter called him Phil. I gave him his doctorate and started calling him Dr. Phil. He is a good cat- still scared from time to time, especially of a wiener dog who runs and barks at him. Even though we've been here for quite a while, Dr. Phil and Frank haven't learned to play together, although Frank would love to play with him. I'm just happy Phil will let me pet him and scratch his head and chin. So this card was created for Halloween and our black cat, Dr. Phil!
I used the Halloween photo based challenge at Fusion as part of the inspiration for my card. The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is "Anything Goes," so any card can be entered in this week's challenge over at Simon. This cat stamp is a Simon Says Stamp exclusive, so I'm especially glad to enter it in their contest this week.
Be sure to check back on Friday for a special Halloween surprise!
