Less is More except where Cupcakes are concerned

I had to make a Thank You card for my kitty's lovely special Auntie in Chief who provided primary care for  him while I was in Florida.  Kitty brought Chief Auntie a rat while I was away much to her considerable upset and she had to call in reinforcements in the form of Auntie 2 (my cat's secondary carer) to get rid of it.    According to Auntie 2, said rat was probably already dead long before my cat found it.
I decided to make a Halloween themed card in keeping with Cupcake Craft's "Witches and Pumpkins" theme and I loosely interpreted Sketch 7 over at Simply Less is More.  I used Orange as one of my colours  from the selection of "orange, purple, lime green and black" at House Mouse & Friends HMFMC131
and I'm entering my card into the challenge at ABC which is "Z is for Zoo".
I have had a lot of unpacking to deal with.  I'm still not 100% recovered but I am getting around to visiting my blog buddies.  Thank you for your patience and thank you also for your well wishes.  They really helped!!!
