Not a party cat…

bk cat lady-002-je

Raise your hand if you get my weirdness.

This was the very first idea I had for Brandi’s Cat Lady set.  And, I couldn’t make anything else until I made this one first.  Because the whole idea of a cat floating by on a balloon just cracked.me.up.

So, I borrowed the balloon from the Celebration Lady set to pull this one together. Man, do I ever love when I get an idea and BOOM! 10 minutes later, it’s REAL. *chinkle*

Hard to tell in the pic that the balloon was coated in Glossy Accents to make it nice and shiny, but if you click on the pic and hit the little enlargement button in the upper right corner, it should expand enough for you to see more detail.

Everything was simply colored with Copics.

Kittie + balloon for the win!

This li’l pup is dreaming of his favorite things–I just avoided inking his eyes before stamping and then quickly hand-drew the sleeping eyes.  I think it’s fun to have is favorite things floating around there within the cloud shape.  It’s hard to tell in the photo, but the dog dish is coated in Glossy Accents so it’s nice and shiny (you can see that better if you click on the photo and then hit the enlarge button in the upper right corner).  I snagged my Dymo Label Maker to make the caption. EEP!!!

Are you a dog person or a cat person?  Or both?  I actually never intended to have a pet but when my daughter left for college, my son seemed like he could really use a buddy, so Bear stole our hearts and had to come live at our house. :) Bear is a pure bred American Eskimo, also known as the German Spitz.

This shot was taken post bath… after he had rolled in deer poop. #teethgnashing   I know, right? How am I supposed to stay mad at those puppy dog eyes???

For this one, I had all the pigeons hanging out on telephone lines in the city–I love using that pattern from the Modern Graphics Paper Pack to simulate skyscraper windows!  :)



And on this one, I made a floating window effect for the love-birds to cuddle on.
