Purr-Fect Friend

As soon as I saw this new release stamp set from My Favorite Things I knew it was one of those "gotta have this NOW" sets.......so into the cart it went.  I've already made a couple more cards using it - all different - so I'm sure you'll see more again soon.
I colored it with Prisma Pencils, sponged some clouds, and the rest is what it is.

Hope you're having Purr-fect day for this Purr-fect kitty!

Diddly Squat

Earlier this week I was let out of the joint.   I didn't even have to post bail or anything........although I'm sure the "bail" will come later in the form of a bill.  Ugh!   Yep, I graduated from physical therapy!  That first time I went, I got home and thought I'd died.  The next day when I woke up I was pretty sure I had!   As the weeks and sessions went by though I actually started improving and was cut loose from it all on Monday.   I still have to do them at home of course, but I'm finally "free"!

Exercise!  Yes, that ugly word that no one wants to hear!  Stretches, leg lifts, bicycle riding,  tummy suck-in's (I'm sure there's a better name for that one), and on and on.  They started putting two pound weights on my legs about mid way through the past month and it was a little harder but I did it.  All is great.  They did that for several sessions and then the guy said he was going to add a little more weight.  Go for it - I'm fit as a fiddle now.  Strapped an extra FIVE pounds on each leg and said do the leg lifts..........um.......grunts, groans, and I finally got one leg to cooperate.  After 10 of those suckers with each leg I told him to kiss my happy hiney.

As a result of this I decided they deserved a little card from me - mainly for putting up with the general bull I dished out to them each time I went.   Those cute images are from the Grumplings over at Taylored Expressions. The patterned paper is from somewhere but no idea where.  Used some distress inks and did some sponging behind the image, added a little Wink of Stella, and that's about it.  Hope this puts a smile on their face.

T Day

Hey everyone.......it's T Day!!!!  It's not only Tuesday, but Thanksgiving as well!  This is a card I'd done for Thanksgiving way back in November and yet never posted.   I know I'm a little bit late but it was on the camera and figured I'd post it now. 

This little guy really wobbles too!  I used one of those wobbly thingy deals from Art Impressions behind the cute stamp from Pretty Cute Stamps.  Did a bit of sponging (that you can barely see behind it) and that was about it.  Very CAS.

I'll be back on Friday and who knows........maybe with a Fun Friday?  Shock, I know!

Cats and Dogs - But Not Raining

Rather plain and nothing fancy at all here but another card that was sent  for Sending Paw Prints.  The clouds are embossed with a heart die but you can't really see that in the picture.  I used a Newton's Nook cat and a Simon Says Stamp dog.

Thanks for stopping by.........and have a great weekend.

Got Mail?

The last couple of pictures I've posted on here have all looked crooked to me.  The only thing I can think of is that my head isn't screwed on right.  That's a very strong possibility too!!!  For some reason though, this one ALMOST looks straight.  Maybe the head is starting to cooperate a little more now - and then again, probably not.

Anyway............I used the Flowering Mailbox from Art Impressions on this card.  Did a little watercoloring with the Marvy markers and then framed it out using some Kraft, pink and purple type card stock.   Done deal.
