I’m so glad you could stop by today for the final day of the Cat Lovers Hop!
And what a hop it’s been! With over 130 talented entries already, who knows how many we’ll have before the day is done?!! I’ve had cat loving visitors from 15 countries stop by!
Who knew that National Chocolate day is October 28 and National Cat day is October 29?! (International Cat day is August 8). Isn’t it crazy how they seem to have a “day” for everything?!! I think EVERY day should be chocolate and cat days!!!
If you’ve been following my posts this week, then you know that I’ve been interviewing famous cats. I sent out many more requests, but not all of our beloved felines deigned to reply. The one I really missed was Tarder Sauce aka “Grumpy Cat” as I had a cat colored like her and some blog candy, too. What was I thinking?!! We all know her most popular MEMEs:
But I’d rather not impute motives… who knows what she’s been going through at the time I wrote? Maybe she’s even had way too many PAWparazzi chasing her lately. So I went ahead and used the image I colored in her honor and put together a fun card in fall colors:
And the inside shows what the little PAWparazzo was up to…
Didja notice my inspired ball of yarn exclamation point?! I’ll fess up as to why it’s inspired… I had masked off the rest of the sentiment while inking it up… then forgot to take off the mask. DUH! It left a smudge that needed covering. THAT’s when the ball of yarn exclamation point idea came up. Too bad the smaller ball wouldn’t cover up the smudge as it’d’ve made the perfect exclamation point! (Note to self… remember for next time!)
There’s a better view of that fantastic metallic creative medium on the left and the Perlen ‘milk’. I used a rounded flower tool to round the eyes before adding glossy accents. They look really cool IRL.
