Primitive Cat

While I was recovering from a herniated disk, I decided to start a doodle journal.  One of my doodles was a primitive cat similar to one that I had seen online somewhere.  Here is my doodle:

My fabulous and VERY talented friend, Gloria, thought it would make a cute applique pillow, so she used my drawing as a pattern and made me not one, but two, gorgoeous pillows!!  Take a look at these!!

I love them!!  I am getting ready to re-do my family room using a primitive theme and these will be perfect on my new couch!!!  Thank you, Gloria!!!!

Christmas in July Happy Mail!

I love going to the mailbox when there are fun things in there waiting for me!  Happy mail is always good, but Christmas in July Happy Mail is even better!!!  My friend, Tracy, who is now living in Alaska, sent a Christmas in July package full of wonderful items!!!  Check out what was in my happy mail:

A fabulous hand stitched Grinch mug rug:

Along with the mug rug, she included a brass Christmas tree ornament from North Pole, Alaska, an Alaska Birch Syrup all-day sucker, and a pack of Alaskan Dill Fish Seasoning mix.

She also included a beautiful hand-stamped Christmas card.

Thank you, Tracy, for everything!!!  You are so thoughtful and I really DO appreciate it!!

Sassy Sponsorship

Today is my first day on the Sassy Sponsorship team for this term, and today it's a two-for-oner!!  Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring Digi Galore (the challenge is "Holiday") and Artistic Inspirations (the challenge is "Anything Goes").

I decided to make a Halloween card.  SSD has some great Halloween images and it was hard to decide on one but, in the end, I used Sassy Witch.  She is so stunningly beautiful that I decided to leave her uncolored...just sponging some black around the edges and putting a little sparkle gel pen in the spider web on her hat.  It's a very simple card, but I like how the simplicity really makes this gorgeous witch pop off the card!  I hope you like her, too!

This image reminds me so much of  the opening of the old Bewitched TV show of my childhood, that I thought this sentiment went perfectly with the image!  Here's the inside of the card:


Stamps:  Sassy Witch digi  (Sassy Studio Designs), moon digi (unknown), "Utterly Bewitching" digi (known),  digi was combined with computer-generated text to complete sentiment
Paper:  Creamy Caramel, Basic Black (Stampin' Up), Neenah 80# white, patterned paper (Graphic 45)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black (for sponging)
Accessories:  Spica Stardust gel pen, 3-D glitter spider sticker pop dots, 1" black grosgrain ribbon (Offrey)
