I don't think that it's too early to start Halloween cards. I love love the fall colors! For me they are easy to work with. I was amazed at how quickly this card came together. (side note: some people think that black and brown should not go together. I beg to differ. I have black hair and have brown skin. I think that they go nice together and I wanted to show that in my card) I love this cat. It reminded me of some cats I had growing up.
