Friday Sketchers

*****Please scroll down for challenge*****

Hi everyone, hope you are all enjoying your weekend :O) Its a lovely day here, although I juat had to put my dressing gown on I have come over all cold. I had an email about one of the kittys and my heart sunk :O( I guess the realisation that they will be going is one I didnt face properly so we will be saying goodbye to one of these beauties in June when the time with their mum is finished and all the essentials done.

So with that we made a desicion on the kitty we would be keeping and well we chose two to keep I just couldnt help myself :O) so I would like to introduce you to

Formerly known as number 3. My son calls his Dad best friend Dude so we took the Dude part from that, isnt he just a cutie, I say he, haha, my hubby is now convinced mini-max is indeed mini-maxine haha and I would also like to introduce you to our other little cutie unnamed as yet so suggestions welcome :O) but she would be formerly number 1.
We believe that she maybe a girl, she has tufts of ginger, but not enough to be called Ginger, and she is the most responsive when I walk in the room and talk, she is also a little minx forever trying to get out of the box, she looks sad in this piccy lol I'll have to get her to pose for another another day :O)

On to the challenge there is a wonderful sketch to follow over on the Friday Sketchers blog and although it is a tall sketch I have adapted it to fit a sqaure card, so once again lol If it cant be counted no worries, I am not a huge fan of those tall cards

Gorgeous Miss Anya have you seen the new set oh my gosh I am in heaven well I will be when they are released fingers crossed I can get a set :O) Coloured with promarkers and copic ciaos and cut using the sizzix scallop frame. I used some K&Co paper and the greeting cut from the bottom of a ff stamp. The swirls are from a sizzlitt die and a few embellies.

Thanks for Looking.x

Awww Last night we watched the two most amazing editions of extreme makeover the home edition. I am addicted to that programme, and we have watched so many of them over the last few years, this season is all about hero's. I have it on series record so we had quite a few there to watch. The first we watched was about a family with the most lovely little boy who had disablities that could kill him if he fell off a step he couldnt do anything himself because of his dwarfism,not sure on that spelling, so they brought everything down to his level, the happiness and joy this little man radiated was so warming :O)

The second one has me in tears before they had even met the family, they had lost the father and eldest son shortly after their home had burnt down, well the mum and children left behind were consumed with grief, and they had this one little man who made my heart melt to look at him,I have never sobbed so much at one programme as I did last night.

Why am I telling you about these I am not sure but both of these episodes really touched me and the work that the crew do to make the lives of these people better is nothing short of a miracle they are truly wonderful people :O) a few more like them and the world would become an amazing place

Anyway I may just have bored you enough this is an incredibly long post oooops! sorry about that, Enjoy your evening, Thanks for stopping by, hope to catch up with you all tonight. xxx

Stunning card Joey. x

Littlebear said...

Hi Joey,
We had a cat that colour when I was little, we called her Tootsy, don't know why - now any cat that colour is a Tootsy to our family!
I love your card - that frame is great.
I don't watch Extreme Makeover - perhaps I should. It's so good when people do nice things for others. A little niceness goes a long way.

Hi Joey, sorry I haven't visited recently. I've been looking at the cards you've done since my last visit and you've have been doing some amazing creations. Love this Anya card (mine have just arrived in the post today, can't wait to get cracking with them). I'm getting lots of inspiration from you.

Love your little kitties, they're so cute.

Hiya Joey

Joey your card is just so gorgeous - you put everything together so flawlessly - I recognice those flourishes - I think I have that but can never get it to cut withoug a heap of hassle on the old Bug!!

Well I have been having kitty withdrawl so just had to pop over and check out the latest piccies - Awww it will be so sad to let some of them go - I don't know what I'd do!!! They are just sooo cute and soon will be getting their own little personalities.

Squeal!!!! I Adore kittens!!!! What an absolutely fabulous pair of cuties!!! Lucky you Joey! And your card is amazing - as always! I am tempted to offer the name Anya to your little kitty, as you've used Anya on your card! But you've probably already named her by now! xx
