GIVIN' SOME CAT-ITUDE

Hello Peeps,
I have actually broken out some rubber stamps today although I don't use them often because I am allergic to rubber and also can't stand the smell LoL

Here is my 2nd piece using stamps from LOST COAST DESIGNS.
I have some new kitties in my house and this definitely illustrates one of them's CAT-itude. hahaha

Is it a Black Hole or a new fangled Cat Flap ????  Well - it's MEOW-loween so who can say bwahahahaha




I hope everyone has a Safe and HAPPY HALLOWEEN xxxx

PARTY CAT IN A HAT

Hello Peeps,
I have actually broken out some rubber stamps today although I don't use them often because I am allergic to rubber and also can't stand the smell LoL

I have used my brand new PARTY HAT CATS set by LOST COAST DESIGNS , that I won as a prize.
These are very detailed stamps and to tell the truth, I'm not really sure what to do with them hahahaha

Since it is Autumn and I'm just about pumpkin-ed out, I decided to go for a Fall leafy creation and made a Tag with some cut-out leaves. The background is stenciled and the I added the stamped and fussy cut kitty. 









Well - just a quick post from me today.
I hope everyone has a Safe and HAPPY HALLOWEEN xxxx

31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN - DAY 31

Hello  Scary Peeps,
I am here today with my creation for DAY 31 of the 31 DAYS of HALLOWEEN BLOG HOP . We are finally at the very special day and I have managed to Blog and Comment all the way through :-D  Yay me !!

Today I have a couple of pieces to show you.... one spooky cute and 2 spooky creepy ones , so if you don't want to see the creepy ones then don't scroll all the way down  Bwahahahaha

My first are a pair of teeny cross stitch characters I have made and I called the The Katensteinz LoL  
They just about fit onto ATC cards :-)
Then I realized I cut the boy out completely wrong...... he should have more space above him not below  so I had to make a teeny label  - Now they don't look so good together !!! Duh  :-(



So now - if you don't want to view the scary one , 
then  Click on this Badge now  to go to the Hop


I hope you will pop over  and see all the final gorgeous creations that everyone has made :-D   I would like to thank our gracious Hostess - LEIGH SNAITH-BRUNTON for hosting this event again and for all her tremendous hard work xxxx

And now.... I give you a super scary Tilda image with added skellie tearing out of her  which was drawn by me. Just to show an example of how you can 'scarify' even a cute image. 
She's got cute little pumpkin hair ties and her Halloween treat bag ready for the candy :-)  
I added a bit of blood spatter. I think her Inner Demon has had a bit too much candy if you ask me !!!

My sentiment says ... " I stopped fighting my inner demons... We're on the same side now "  :-D 




Here's another look at the card I did with my my Freebie from IkesArt Progressive FaceBook Challenge - " DEATH 2 ".
For " DEATH 2 ", I coloured him with Spectrum Noir markers and then set him against IKEsART - " Flower Square " background, which I left deliberately uncoloured. I gave him some lovely eyes and a bit of red lippy just to take the edge off hahahaha  :-D 


Bye now - and thank you for all your lovely comments on my 31 DOH creations. xxx

31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN - DAY 30

Hello Peeps,
I am here today with my creation for DAY 30 of the 31 DAYS of HALLOWEEN BLOG HOP .

Halloween is drawing ever closer and today I  have the  Back Inside Cover Page to show you.
I have used a FREE paper from MEINLILAPARK. There are loads of Freebies there :-D 
I have also used a lovely glittery pumpkin fold-over that a dear friend sent me with some chocolate in, and I have slipped a little baggie of Halloween ephemera in there ( I ate the chocco LoL ).



So, my album is finished now. I made ribbon closures because I couldn't get the darn magnets to work and I don't think they would have been strong enough anyway ! Here's another look at the front ;

31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN - DAY 29

Hello Peeps,
I am here today with my creation for DAY 29 of the 31 DAYS of HALLOWEEN BLOG HOP .

Halloween is drawing ever closer and today I  have the Front Inside Cover Page to show you.
I have used a paper from PATACAKES PAGES  Free page and added a little decorated Halloween ticket.



I couldn't make my magnet closures work and Velcro would probably tear the pages, so I have gone with a simply ribbon tie closure.
I've got all the back cover panels cut and just waiting for it all to dry, so I can show you the final page tomorrow :-D

31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN - DAY 28

Hello Peeps,
I am here today with my creation for DAY 28 of the 31 DAYS of HALLOWEEN BLOG HOP .

Halloween is drawing ever closer and today I  have Page 18 - the final internal page of my Album to show you.  I have used papers and bats by Smeared Ink (no longer trading) and have covered my bats with some KindyGlitz. The glittered BOO sticker is set on some curled florist wire so it 'waggles' :-D


So - all I have to do now is cover the inside of the book covers and I have something special for the inside back cover :-)
The bloomin' magnets that I bought to make a closure for this only seem to be 'one-way' magnets - if you know what I mean - so they don't actually stick together !!!! Not sure how I am going to overcome this - I might have to try and insert a thin metal shim into one cover to get the magnet to stick to it :-( Anyhoo - I am sure I will think of something to keep the folder shut.

I was going to put a really scary page at the end, but someone might want me to send them this Album and I didn't want to put them off  LoL :-D

OH MY - HOW SAD IS THIS ??? :-(


I have just been reading about this poor Doggo and it made me so sad thought I would share this around..



Poor Bailey desperately needs help and there is a special Digital Stamp on sale to help raise funds for him. 





Tina has also set up a Paypal Donations Account in Baileys name if you would like to help with a one time donation of any size you can do so HERE

I haven't coloured up my Bailey yet but I will do it soon. I might make some cards for an Animal Charity :-)

This is the new set that I drew for Janis to give as a Prize :-)

CAT LOVERs' BLOG HOP 2018 - DAY 5

Hello sweet Kitty Peeps,

*** Is it just me or have all the FOLLOWERS panels disappeared ???? ***

Here I am with DAY 5 of the CAT LOVERs' BLOG HOP 2018.
I am Sponsoring again this year and have drawn a set of new images that will be given away by Janice from HER PEACEFUL GARDEN as one of her Prizes.

Today I have used my pumpkin card for the main page. The kitty is from Digi Darla Designs (no longer trading) and is called " KITTEN n CLOAK ". I coloured him and then printed him 4 times and the fussy cut him into layers. The papers are snippets from my desk and I added some teeny clay embellies. I'm pretty sure these pumpkins were made by Leigh Snaith-Brunton and sent to me as a giftette   :-D The bats down the side are a punch I have and I cut the spooky letters from magazines. 








This is the new set that I drew for Janis to give as a Prize :-)

CAT LOVERs' BLOG HOP 2018 - DAY 4

Hello sweet Kitty Peeps,
Here I am with DAY 4 of the CAT LOVERs' BLOG HOP 2018.
I am Sponsoring again this year and have drawn a set of new images that will be given away by Janice from HER PEACEFUL GARDEN as one of her Prizes.

Today I have used another kitty from my Prize set - ' SPARKLER KITTY '. This set will be available for sale in IKEsART after the Hop is over.
I have tried to make the kitties seasonal for this time of year :-)

The kitty is watercoloured and set on a generic Bonfire Night image. The Font is called LMS Pumpkin, free from FONTS 101. I added a small digital 'highlight' effect to his sparkler.
