Isn’t she just the cutest?! I also put a twinkle in her eye by adding Sparkle pen and, after dry, adding Glossy Accents – which I also added to the coffee and coffee bean – you’ll see it better in the close-up in just a minute. I love those gorgeous stacked embossed and de-bossed dies, too. Here’s the best pic I could get of the inside embossing.

It really is elegant in real life. Don’t know why the pic wouldn’t cooperate and I’m too tuckered out to figure it out. Apologies!

Just wait til you see the details of the front close up, though!

Yes, those are actually fuzzy slippers and a fuzzy bear! First I colored them and did their noses in Glossy Accents. Once dry, I added the flocking (which has some glitter in it). I wish you could touch your screen and feel these warm fuzzies!! Come back when technology catches up, ok?!

It’s been a fun week with the Winter 2016 Coffee Lovers Hop! Here’s a summary of my accomplishments on my ‘brag board’:

20161216_163828

A nice little batch of cards and the ones not already going out will beef up my stash which can always use more. If you’ve been following along, can you spot the project that WASN’T made this week? Yep, the Newton’s Nook game. It was posted during the Cat Lovers Hop, but since it was a super fun project and is also coffee related, you might want to read about it HERE if you missed the original post.

I’d like to thank you all for visiting my blog and for leaving all of those kind and encouraging comments! They always brighten my day!!

I’ll look forward to seeing you soon!

Art Impressions these cute little kitties so that they can be put together front and back. I cut under their paws before putting them together so they would stack better.

Can you tell they’re from the same litter? They remind me of the two hanging out on the Cat Town mug below:

For today’s funnies, I thought I’d give a nod to those who are both SciFi & Cat Lovers:

1026Spock   1026LLP

Anyone remember Data’s genius ‘Ode to Spot’?

Felis Catus -is your taxonomic nomenclature

An endothermic quadruped, carniverous by nature?

Your visual, olfactory, and auditory senses

Contribute to your hunting skills and natural defenses.

I find myself intrigued by your sub-vocal oscillations –

A singular development of cat communications

That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection

For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.

A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents –

You would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.

And when not being utilized to aid in locomotion,

It often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.

Oh, Spot, the complex levels of behavior you display

Denote a fairly well developed cognitive array.

And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend…

I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend!

For those of you who prefer more recent SciFi kitty refs:

DrWhoWithCats did a great job of photoshopping T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats into River Song’s hand! Although I’m fonder of the older cover – probably because they’re a cool stack of cats in hats:

1026OldPossumsBook1

Ok, I’ve rambled on so much that most of you now wish you had a time machine to go back and recapture the 5 minutes of your life that you just lost with this nonsense! I’ll probably be back later today with a second card.

Live long and pawspurr!

Allons-y!

-D.Ann
