Saturday Night Cat Bath

     We've all heard of the Saturday night bath and we've all heard of a cat bath but this is a Saturday Night Cat Bath!  Come to think of it, this may actually be an annual, autumn bath!  Only in House Mouse land.  lol

Silhouette Witch - Second Take

     A couple of weeks ago I shared a card with this same silhouette image done in Harvest Yellow.  This time I've done it in another Halloween color - my favorite, purple.  I used gray-blue instead of purple on the moon and tied an orange bow to add to the Halloween feel.

Warm Hat Girl

     This sweet image is from All Dressed Up and it's a wonderful image for staying warm on a cold, winter-y day.  I love the play in the sentiment (which is part of the image) on the old saying "Cold hands, warm heart."  This time, both are warm.  :-D


Colored with ProMarkers
Image and frame cut with  Tonic Studio dies
Glitter paper from Recollections
Everything die cut came from scraps
Doodlebug dp - also scraps (My favorite designer papers always have small prints so that they enhance the image instead of overwhelming it.  If they are somewhat monochromatic, that's even better.)

Feline Nativity

  This is the last day of the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop.
 Haven't played before but interested?
Click HERE.

     Feeling that I nearly cheated on yesterday's post because it only had one tiny cat in a die cut, I went a little crazy with die cut cats for this Christmas card.  For those of you who know me and the kinds of cards I enjoy making, you'll see right away that this is outside my "normal" creation.  Still, I do occasionally do cards that are filled with only die cuts so it's not a completely new venture.


Background is dry embossed with "Linen" folder
Manger & star cut with Die-versions die
Cats are cut with Poppy Stamps and Impression Obsession dies
Sentiment cut with Cheery Lynn die
Sparkle paper for manger is from Recollections

     Challenges:

     That wraps up the Cat Lovers Hop for this year but I'm sure we'll all be hopping along next year at this same time.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Cowboy Pumpkin

     It's Friday again and I'm sharing another DT card for QKR Stampede.  Our theme is always Anything Goes.  As you can see, I've done another Halloween card, this time using a cute QKR image called "Cowboy Pumpkin."  The sentiment is also from QKR - "Happy Halloween."


Colored with ProMarkers
Fussy cut with scissors

It's Day 4 of the Cat Lovers Blog Hop.
Haven't played before and interested in joining?
Click HERE.

     I'm back to another of the House Mouse images which have a cat (and mouse, of course) and I think Maxwell is doing his best to get as excited about the cat nip as the cat.  It's never going to happen, Max.  lol


I used colors from the challenge over at The Outlawz
adding yellow and green from the inspiration photo
and doing lots of layers for my twist.

It's All About the Stretch

     This is one of those cards that 'shows up' unexpectedly and drives you crazy for hours!  Let me tell you the story and you'll see why.  I got up this morning and was going to work in the craft room on some additional cards for the Cat Lovers Blog Hop going on between now and Saturday.

Haven't played before and interested in joining?
Click HERE.

     I looked at the desktop and there's a card lying on it which wasn't there yesterday when I finished playing.  I remember very clearly making the card but it was back a ways, maybe even six or seven months ago.  So I searched back through the posts on my blog and it wasn't there.  

     Hmmm, could it have been as much as a year ago?  I search back further, all the way back to last year's Cat Lovers Hop but nothing.  OK, go back even further - I covered every post for the last two years and more (wasting a good two hours of what could have been productive time - grrrrr.)  I have never blogged about this card!  

     Well, lucky you, folks.  You get to see it today and I get to enter one more card into the Hop.  :-D  This card was done in honor of one of my childhood cats who was named "Stretch."  He was black and always stretched before every activity.  Even when he awoke hungry and thirsty, he had to take time to stretch every muscle and tendon in his sleek body.  

     Please don't ask me who made the cat image because I don't remember.  I do remember sizing the two cat images and reversing one to print them both on the same piece of CS.


Eyes done with red glitter
Cut with square die (QuicKutz) and distressed

Get Well Kitty

     Hey, the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop started yesterday.
 This is year #5 and I'm going to play each day
between now and Saturday, when it ends.
Haven't played before and interested in joining?
Click HERE.

     No Halloween today but a cute Get Well card using an image from House Mouse.  I love how tenderly s/he's being treated by the mice.  Or maybe they just know s/he can't outrun them with a broken paw.  :-D

     Hey, the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop starts today
 and this is my first project for it!
This is year #5.

Click HERE.

     Ready for another silhouette card?  This one was pretty quick and simple, and qualifies as a CAS card, I'm sure.  Have you noticed a fascination for cats in these silhouettes?   Back in the days when I was still buying rubber stamps instead of using digis (a looooong time ago!), I think I bought every single stamp I saw that had a cat in it.  Of course, when it comes to Halloween stamps, cats are easy to find, especially black cats which makes silhouettes a natural.  :-D

Cat, Bats, and a Full Moon

     Back to Halloween silhouettes.  I played a bit with my ProMarkers to create the background on this one.  I used a scrap piece of watercolor paper which lets alcohol inks spread naturally.  After applying the colors with ProMarkers, I wet a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol (damp, not sopping) and rubbed the entire background.  After that dried, I went back over just the moon with a yellow ProMarker to define it a bit more.

     The silhouette cat and bats, plus the sentiment went on after the background was completely dry.  I ironed the paper to make sure it was completely flat and that took the texture out of it and made it very smooth.  I colored the eyes, then added a sheer ribbon and bow, and finally adhered the image piece to a card base and trimmed the top and bottom to fit.

Cutest Purple Witch, Ever!

     When I was growing up, when we talked about "Halloween colors" we meant black and orange - only black and orange. Somewhere along the way, Ooze Green got added and then Purple.  Once Purple became a Halloween color, I was ecstatic!  It's my favorite color whatever time of the year, and getting to use it for Halloween was the greatest bonus ever.

     This little witch is following good advice when she digs out and dons her purple dress and purple hat.  :-D  The image is the freebie for the Progressive Challenge at LeAnn's World 101.

Creepy Graveyard

     I got inspired by the "Silhouettes" theme at Double D this fortnight and dug through old stamps and digi images I have which either were silhouettes or could be used as silhouettes with a little help from a black ProMarker or paint brush.  This was a rubber stamp (maker unknown due to its age) but not a silhouette stamp.  I had to make it a silhouette by coloring the open parts of the stamp with black.

Keeping Warm

     This lovely image from the Scrapper's Delights Progressive Challenge should make anyone feel warm and cozy this winter.  Since the temperatures where I live have dropped from "hot, hot, HOT" all the way down to autumn comfortable with delightfully cool nights, I'm more than willing to start making "keep warm" cards.  :-D  I don't know if she's drinking tea, coffee, hot chocolate, hot cider, or a hot toddy, but whatever it is, it seems to be working!


I used colors from the top row of the color board at
I also used Lemonade for her hair and Ballerina for her skin.

Silhouette Ghosts

     I'm racing the clock to get this post written and pre-scheduled so that I don't miss out on showing you my DT card for the new weekly challenge at QKR Stampede.  I live in California and our power may be shut off any minute now for an unknown length of time - hours or even days.  The power company says it's for 'fire danger prevention.'  Yeah, I know - I've never heard of that in all the years I've lived in California but a good share of the northern end of the state is already without power.

     Anyway, my card today features 2 images from our sister company, Eureka Stamps, and each one is called "Dark Ghost" (4007) and "Dark Ghost" (4002).  The sentiment is from QKR Stampede and is called "Boo" (how appropriate!)


     The two silhouette images were printed as they are and the sentiment was colored with ProMarkers.  I wanted a very CAS card so did no embellishments at all.  I did ink the edges of the card front with purple.

A Doggone Good Halloween !

    I'm sharing a quick and easy Halloween card today which I finished in record time because I wanted to get the post written before our power goes off.  It may be off for anywhere from a few hours to a few days.  Long story and you can read more about it in tomorrow's QKR Stampede DT post.  I just finished that one and pre-scheduled it to post tomorrow.

     Today's card has a pre-colored image from Fabrika Fantasy where the theme is "Halloween."  I've had this image for a while now but have never used it.  The fact that's it's pre-colored means that it took me about 15 minutes to get this card finished.

The sketch came from Sweet Sketch Weds
and the color from the inspiration photo at Paperbabe Stamps.

Mushroom Fairy for Fall

     This adorable little fairy, sitting in her mushroom garden enjoying the cooler days of fall, is from All Dressed Up. 

     The weather has stayed pretty hot where I live until today when they are predicting 83 instead of 93, and my blogging buddy, Lynn, a Texan from head to toe, says it's stayed awfully warm in her area, too.  So this card celebrates the arrival of fall and if it hasn't cooled off for her yet, maybe the weather is heading from my house to hers.  Hang in there, Lynn!


I chose colors from the middle column of color board #363
at Color My Heart Color Dare, plus I used "Ballerina"

Orange and White Halloween

     I took to heart the challenge theme at Double D - to use nothing but orange and white on a project with an allowable neutral for a sentiment.  So, did I choose something easy like a sunflower image or leaves, or just a focal sentiment done in orange on a white background?  No, I chose an image from Mo's Digital Pencil, complete with Little Witch Henrietta and her farm kitten sitting there in the pumpkin patch.  What could I possibly do with just orange and white?  lol

     I used 9 different shades of orange ProMarkers and Copics, everything from Pale Orange to Deep Mango.  Nobody ever said I took the easy road to the destination!  What do you think?  Can you find the patch job I had to do?

Batdog to the Rescue!

     OK, OK, I know there's no "Batdog" in real life or even in the comics but think of him as a recent, mythical creature!  I adore the cute image we received this month from Polkadoodles for the Outlawz Progressive Challenge.  Perfect for another Halloween card with her little pup all dressed in his bat costume.  :-D
