Don't Mess with Me !

      Tomorrow starts the 2020 Cat Lovers Hop and today is the last day to sign up as a player in it.  I've played each year since 2016 and I'm already working on cards for this year.  It runs from the 26th (tomorrow) through the 31st (Saturday) and, of course, it's all about cats.  Felines in any form, if you please.  

     My card today is a start - to get in the mood.  This image is one that was printed and sent to me by a dear friend who wanted to make sure I had plenty of kitty images since I'm still suffering from the loss of all my digi images, carefully collected over a period of a dozen years.  A few have been recovered from the crashed thumb drive, but most are still in limbo and I have no way of knowing if I'll ever be able to get to them again.

     In any case, my friend sent me 10 printed/stamped cat images and I'm using 3 or 4 of them in addition to 2 or 3 others which I already had.  Some of them I'll be able to tell you the artist or creator, others not, but I do know this one is from Angie's Antics (long since closed) and I colored him so that he's wearing his harvest finery in yellow, orange, and gold.

Colored w ProMarkers & chalks
Cut w QuicKutz die
Sentiment cut w Avery Elle die
Mesh fiber 'ribbon'
Satin-edged, sheer ribbon for hand-tied bow
Background dp from scrap basket


     Enjoy the rest of your weekend, however short it might be.  I'm going to fix myself a late lunch and then retire to the craft room to work on coloring a couple more cats.  Remember, the Cat Lovers Hop starts tomorrow morning and you could join in with any cat image you might have.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
