Here's one that's not about cats, but I love it sooo much. If you have ever been around rescue/rehab baby owls, you have seen them do this kind of thing. So cute!!

I am back with my second project for today. I was going to post this yesterday, but you know how it goes.... lol...
I am showcasing two more of our fabulous Cat Lovers Hop sponsors with this project: Paper Smooches and Serendipity!!!
I hope you will help me show them how much we appreciate their generosity by going to their blogs and/or social media sites and telling them thank you. I love how many of you have been doing this already!!!!
Here are some links for you:
Paper Smooches: Blog, Facebook (Did you know Paper Smooches has their DT Hop going on right now with more chances for you to win some PS goodies???)
Have you ever had trick-or-treaters come to the door that were a little bit too old and waaaaay too cool to be doing that on Halloween? I'm talking about 13 and 14 yr old boys (or even older!) who don't bother dressing up, except for maybe sunglasses and a long trenchcoat. These young men know they are really too old but they don't want to miss out on the loot, so they go anyway. Ha. Yep...you know the ones....I can tell!! Well, these candy treat holders are inspired by them. lol...
The "trick-or-treat" in the hand-drawn speech balloons is from a Serendipity grab bag. (They sell these bags of 10 unmounted stamps for only $1.00!! Awesome, huh? I ordered two and the owner, Mary Lee, made sure there were no duplicates in there. Great service!!!) The sentiment is actually on a trick-or-treat bag but I inked up only the words to use this time. You can see a project I made last year using the whole image here.
I stamped the cats and sentiment with Versamark ink on scraps of orange cardstock and heat embossed them with clear powder. Nice shiny, slick kitties ready to gobble your candy!!! Kit-Kats, of course. :)
I die cut DCWV patterned paper scraps for the holders with my Sizzix - Fancy Labels Dies. I used more scraps for wrapping around the candy bar. A few wispy scraps of the dollar store "spooky cloth" adds a bit of mystery. Fun, huh?
I hope you will join the Cat Lovers Hop by linking up a cat themed project (by Nov. 1) and/or commenting on the linked projects (by Nov. 3). The Guidelines and FAQ page is here and you can link up on the main page.
I am absolutely thrilled with the response to this hop!!! Right now we have 77 entries and still a day to go. Thank you so much for your excitement and participation!!
Thank you for the honor of entering these treat holders in the following challenges:
