Have A Stinking Good Birthday!

Scribbles Designs Challenge #27


Feline Frenzy
It used to be that dogs were man's best friend and for many, they still are.  However, cats are starting to rival dogs as pet companions.  In fact, there are a lot of statistics to back that up.  According to Ipsos Reid (2011), there were approximately 7.9 million cats and 5.9 million dogs in Canada. With approximately 35% of Canadian households having a dog, and 38% having a cat.  In the States, the numbers are a little bit different.   According to several different sources of stats compiled by Psychology Today, there were roughly 86 million cats and 78 million dogs in the US. With approximately 39% of American households having a dog, and 33% having a cat. In the UK, according to stats provided by the Pet Food Manufacturers Association (2013), the percentages of animals is even with roughly 8.5 million of each.  However, dog owners accounted for 25% of households whereas cat owners only accounted for 19% of households.  So, this month we are looking for cats as the primary focus for your creation.  Wild or domestic, it's up to you.  This month, cats rule and dogs drool.

Have A Stinking Good Birthday!


Well good ol' Athos the Alley Cat is perfect for the Feline Frenzy theme this month... I tried to give Athos an orange tabby look, I think it looks fairly okay. A hand lettered sentiment flag, a glittered heart, a purple button, mulberry papers & DP flags all on a fun background...

Challenge #24 Serendipity

Birthday Serendipity...


this month's theme is Serendipity at PoP... I loved this image from Sami Stamps, Umbrella Splash and it to me worked perfectly with the theme.  Splashing in a puddle during a warm summer rain sprinkle offers such unknown happenings... 
I colored the image with copics then layered the image along on top of purple mulberry paper and polka dotted DP.  The card is a pre-printed card that worked great for the image.  The sentiment are little letter stickers.

('Scuz me in advance... swear words coming...)
You know...I'm not defined by the misconceptions of others.  People who think they know me in fact, do not know me. (People who come into, have been invited (sorry to sound pompous) my inner circle, you do know me.)  To think that your words (and actions) would have the devastating results that you thought (or hoped for) is ridiculous.  Having that negativity, which you think is 'being there for you' and 'caring' is pure bullshit. And the comments that I hide behind walls and I have issues to deal with.  Again... bullshit.  Years of counselling has brought me this far and I consider myself pretty well balanced.  I 'shine'.  Blasphemous & accusatory comments will only continue you to not be welcome at my door.  I don't need the negativity energy encompassing myself, my husband or my dog. I hope that you will get some enlightenment and understanding it's not all about you.  And remember, there are mirrors everywhere.

Shrug.... enufff!!!

Whew...

It's a sunny day here today... loving it... and I'm out doing my walks/runs (yes, again for the 7th or 8th start at it..LOL)

Birthday Blessings...






Using the super sweet image Octavia Moonfly Dragonfly from Polkadoodles colored with copics and spica highlights on the wings; I felt drawn to a shaped easel card with this image.... and in my stash of stashes I found a set of cut pieces from a flower card from My Scrap Chick.  I added a collection of paper flowers, pearls, flower-shaped bling and a handmade bow.  The Birthday Blessings is from a cricut cartridge.

A quiet yet busy week ahead.... dog agility classes, work, dinners out, dog obedience classes, running/walking clinics, creating images... 
this week will go by fast...
Charli is still on the learning side of agility. He'll be able to compete once he's 18 months old so we're still heading that direction.  I had hoped to put him into an Obedience Trial soon, but alas, our boy isn't quite ready.  The target is either May or July for one of the local matches.  It is such a sight to see him when he gets it.  It is so cool.  He loves it and then is so proud of himself!  Listen to me... a gloating parent!  LOL

Challenge #24 Serendipity

Happy Cruises...



Serendipity - perfect for a unexpected pleasant travel adventure... I found this image from the Travel Collection by Luna Girl and found my heart going to the Canadian Pacific image - although it was hard to choose from the collection. 
I think my studio is actually full of serendipity - having luck finding valuable and/or pleasant things that I wasn't looking for! I know that my DH Boyd shudders going in as he can't see what I see in my creative serendipity chaos!

Anything Goes

Celebrate the Season...



Even though this is an Easter Goose,  from Rick St Denis, I felt 'he' worked well with the chevron background and Celebrate the Season subway art....  I printed the image onto Kraft paper and colored with copics and prisma pencils... added a few pearls and it looks pretty darn good....

Scribbles Designs Challenge #26
Clean and Simple
There are many different kinds of card making styles and clean and simple is one of them.  However, not everyone sees clean and simple the same way.  For some it might mean an uncluttered design with lots of white space, for others it might be a very simple layout but with a few embellishments here and there.  For the purposes of our challenge this month, we'd like to see a very simple layout with either a minimum of embellishments or none at all, allowing the focus of your creation to be a well coloured image.  Bring on the white space and show us what you've got.


Wishing You  A Purr-fect Day!




A very simple CAS, directly printed on to Kraft paper and colored with copics.  Both are new images from Scribbles Designs.... Aramis and Purrfect Day... It looks quite effective being one layer, doesn't it?

You still have plenty of time to join in at the current challenge at Scribbles Designs...

A sunny and a little crisp today.... no snow which is awesome...
We're certainly seeing spring come full bore - early as it is...

Charli and I have been busy with classes (obedience and agility) and we will look forward to hopefully soon doing our first pre-novice trial... Yay!  

I've been also doing a commissioned piece of art for a girlfriend (I had designed one of her tattoos) and now 'tattooed' her wall...  The piece is about 7 1/2 feet wide by 5 1/2 feet tall...

This is the full shot of the drawing

Wishing You Everything Wonderful...

It's time again for the
challenge. 


This week's challenge is:

Single Layer Card 
(plus a sentiment)


Wishing You Everything Wonderful...



Hi everyone! I'm posting late - whoopsie - anyhow... I have a cutie image from the sponsor PPinky Dolls Art, Thinking; printed directly onto a ecru colored card, colored with copics, with a sweet sentiment from Jess, Playing with Paper.  I found it a very CAS card with very little coloring to achieve the simplicity.  And it was hard not to add anything else!

A warm sunny day here yesterday in the Okanagan...looks like today will be sunny and a little cooler.... Spring is definitely on it's way....
After work, B and I took Sir Charli out for a good walk/hike into the large park out our back door.  We were on a wide path that had lots of people and dogs so Charli was hyped up pretty good.  I was 'trying' to do some basic training with him which was an attempt with him.  He just wanted to whine (excited) and pull like crazy.  Switched him over from the harness to the collar and he settled down quite well.  I was able to get him to sit & stay as people with/without dogs walked by and release him.  It's hard with such a social dog that he thinks everyone should go gushy over him!  LOL
We'll go for another training session tonight, I'll wear a running glove to spare my hand/fingers from getting leash burn... LOL
