My new friend!

This is my new buddy Squirtle. I got him on Black Friday from the Humane Society. I had picked him from a picture online. His picture just popped out to me and his name is my nickname for my little nephew. I was originally going to look for an older cat. Because of the looooooong wait for adoption on black friday they only let you see 2 animals. The other kitty I looked at, when I read his paperwork, I saw he didn't get along with other animals, so he was out. 

This picture shows his slightly orange stripage in the black.

I decided right off that I wanted to leash train him and was trying to figure out a way to make my own. This tiny t-shirt from a stuffy fit him but when I redesigned it to fit him better, it fell apart.

This was another fail. I ended up with a leather cord and a slip knot and he does pretty good with that. He thinks he wants to go out and explore the hallways. I haven't taken him outside yet and I don't want him out on my balcony because there is a tree right next to it and I can see him jumping over. I did get him a harness but it is too big right now and he can get out of it. The problem with the slip knot is when he freaks out he pulls back and it tightens around his neck. He is not comfortable with other people yet. If he sees someone in the hallway he freaks and does his best Halloween kitty and pulls away, so I pick him up to make him feel safe but he will put up a fight. 
He had an ear infection when I got him and has been feeling much better now. He spent the night of the super moon bouncing off the walls and knocking everything over for about 10 hours. ah, youthful energy. He let me sleep last night.

Delight IN The Little Things

For this card I used great-catch by Sugar Pea Designs. I used some scrap tags from my stash, matching them up on the inside and outside. I colored this in colored pencils.

Simple cards

Yup, I actually made a few simple cards. Actually these just started out as me trying out some new layered floral stamps. I added some scrap tags that I have had in my stash for a long time and left the inside is blank.

You Make My Heart Pop! SPDMIU36

This is another stamp by Sugar Pea Designs . The cat is from Gerda Steiner Designs Playful Kittens stamp set. I added some of the pop corn with foam tape for a little dimention. I could see this little girl watching a movie with her pop corn and a playful kitten flying through the air and causing quite a mess. I use a piece of pop corn as the O in the word pop. I would love the matching dies for this set. Hand cutting pop corn is a pain. LOL

You're a Great Catch! SPDMIU36

I love this raccoon! So cute! The stamps are from Sugar Pea Designs. They have so many cute images. I am still trying to conquer the alcohol marker. I need a lot more practice. They color up much faster than colored pencils (my usual go to coloring product). This is rather love hate for me. I can get an image colored quickly but I enjoy taking my time with pencils and layering, plus they are erase able. Every time I have tried the trick of moving marker color with the clear blender I end up with a huge area of bleed. I will keep trying, but I don't see them as my go to for awhile.
