HAPPY NATIONAL CAT DAY 2017


Hello Peeps and happy NATIONAL CAT DAY.
I have so enjoyed the last 6 days of the Cat Lovers' Hop and am now totally refueled with Catiness :-)
I have a small card to show today and some funny cat memes I found so here we go.....



This little card was made using a Stampendous kitty stamp coloured with Promarkers.


Here's a scary Halloween piece for using using my image POE CAT from IKEsART... which is part of my Edgar Allan POE collection and done especially to illustrate his spook story ... THE BLACK CAT, and how it ultimately got it's revenge :-D  Click HERE to read it.






Many thanks to Janis at HER PEACEFUL GARDEN for hosting another super successful Cat Hop. I sure had fun going round and visiting 190 cat loving people :-D    Now I am looking forward to next year.

I found this photo........ this is very much what my patio looks like at Feeding Time  hahahahahaha



Thanks for purring by today xxxxx

CAT LOVERS' BLOG HOP 2017 - DAY 6


Hello Peeps,
Welcome to the last Day of the fur-bulous CAT LOVERS' BLOG HOP 2017, as hosted and arranged by the wonderful JANIS over at HER PEACEFUL GARDEN.  I have had such a blast as usual on this great Hop and have enjoyed colouring up some of my own images for a change LoL :-D

This is the 3rd year that Janis has published this event and it seems that every year more of us cat lovers and taking part.
This is also my 3rd year of participation and this year's Prize from me is a brand new cat set that I drew especially for Janis.



Each day of the Hop there will be one of these new kitties to win from this set in a special game Janis has devised. The Game for Day 6 is to share your favourite thing about this CAT LOVERs' HOP.


This card is to celebrate " OXI " Day here in Greece. It is a big celebration and there is a huge parade down in town later this morning. All the shops, banks etc are closed and everyone will be out to celebrate :-D
Here's the History........

Oxi Day (Greek «'Οχι» Greek pronunciation: "'Ohi", meaning  "No") is celebrated throughout GreeceCyprus and the Greek communities around the world on 28 October each year.  It commemorates the rejection by Greek prime minister Ioannis Metaxas of the ultimatum made by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini on 28 October 1940, the Hellenic counterattack against the invading Italian forces at the mountains of Pindus during the Greco-Italian War, and the Greek Resistance during the Axis occupation.
This ultimatum, which was presented to Metaxas by the Italian ambassador to Greece, Emanuele Grazzi (fr), shortly after 03:00 am on 28 October 1940, who had just come from a party in the Italian embassy in Athens, demanded Greece to allow Axis forces to enter Greek territory and occupy certain unspecified "strategic locations" or otherwise face war. It was allegedly answered with a single laconic word: όχι (No!). However, his actual reply was, “Alors, c’est la guerre!” (Then it is war!).
In response to Metaxas's refusal, Italian troops stationed in Albania, then an Italian protectorate, attacked the Greek border at 05:30 am—the beginning of Greece's participation in World War II (see Greco-Italian War and the Battle of Greece).

On the morning of 28 October, the Greek population took to the streets, irrespective of political affiliation, shouting 'oxi'. From 1942, it was celebrated as Oxi Day, first mostly among the members of the resistance and after the war by all the Greeks.


I have used the last image from the kitty set prize. This one is called 'Hello There'.  He is put with one of the views from my  'GREEK VIEWS - World Tour Series' also from IKEsART.
I superimposed a Greek Flag and added the kitty at the front.

Janis has an amazing number of fantastic Sponsors this year and there are loads of Prizes, so why not pop over and join in the cat fest :-D  You will find the start of the Hop here:   MAIN HOP PAGE


**** As it is a special day today and also the last day of the Hop... my little Prize will be the full set of kitties for a randomly picked comment below. I will leave this opportunity open until 31st October 2017. ****

This set will be available  for purchase in my Shop  IKEsART  after the Hop has closed.


Thank you for Following me :-) xx

Here is a piece I have made using today's kitty prize from the set.
This image was drawn of my little cat WIDGET. Unfortunately she suffered brain damage during an operation and really was a bit of a 'Basket Case'. She really loved this fruit basket and would cram herself in there. 
She later developed a really bad case of tail dysmorphia, so we had to cut it off. She was so much happier afterwards though and had a much more relaxed and stress free life - bless her. She passed away last year R.I.P  little Widget xxxxx


Backing papers are again  from one of my favourite sites with many Freebies... MEINLILAPARK.
