Day 26 of 31 Days of Halloween / Day 6 of Cat Lovers Hop

Once again Leigh is hosting 31DOH!

Oct 1 - 31, 2019

The Blog Hop  linky party opens Oct 1st at 5 past midnight PDT and ends at midnight on Oct 31st!

For more details go to

🎃 LeighSBDesigns annual 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop🎃

I will be sharing today's Halloween make on Leigh's page...Day 1

Many of my pages end up being 'a work in progress' - when I looked at this this morning I decided it needed a little more:

A few more spiders? I looked at some of my spider stamps...

And decided to use one of them stamped on craft and cut out...

I used a fineliner to add strings of web.

I thought I would show you a better photo of the joke!

The other thing I made today was a couple of Halloween ATCs.

I have already written a post about the one in the middle of the picture.
This is the new one:

The image is a freebie from Ike's SUYP Challenge - I will link this there

  1. Yellow card.
  2. Paper from Spooky Spectacular (papermilldirect).
  3. Image stamped, coloured with Copics and cut out.
  4. Halloween die cut in yellow (Tattered Lace Advent calendar a few years ago).
  5. A scattering of purple 'pearls'.

This is another make for the Cat Lovers Hop

I am joining in with the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop

Do pop over and find all the details on Janis' Her Peaceful Garden blog

Thank you to everyone who has hopped by both hops - my blog has seen so many footfalls over the last few days!

This is a very old Halloween make of mine - a small fat page that I made to illustrate a verse from a poem.
Can you tell me the poem (and writer) the verse came from?

Please email your answer to

Happy Day 26 of 31DOH!


  1. I love that image from Ike. I wish I had a chance to use it this Hop. Maybe next year.

  2. Glad we can still use that cute kitty from Ike in the SUYP challenge. Love how you've colored her and the background with the lavender pearls is purr-fect, Susan! I had enlarged your page to read the joke when you first posted it and it still makes me giggle. Love the new spiders you added. xxD

  3. Bats, cats and pumpkins....all make for a cute Halloween card. :)

  4. Hard to imagine that this is all packed onto an atc sized card. I love that cat. Hugs Mrs A.

  21. What wonderful projects you have created! I really like the ATC's. But then again, I am loving all of the spiders on your page. Can't pick a favorite. They are all fantastic! :)

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I appreciate it!

    Have a great week! :)

  22. So many unique cat projects.

  23. EEEEEEEEK!!! MORE spiders??????? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! lol... Actually these make it less scary, I think, because there are just soooooo many of them. I really hate when they hang suspended from their web right in front of me, though. YIKES!! Gives me the creeps. :)

    Love your fun Halloween ATC with Ike's image. Wonderful coloring and I like how you added the purple pearls to the background. Great idea!!

    Thanks so much for playing along in the #2019CatLoversHop!!!
