It's all about CATTITUDE blog hop 28 29 Oct 2011

Good morning everyone and welcome to the Its All About Cattitude blog hop hosted  by Barbara.

If you have arrived here from Jamies blog  then your on the right track to carry on but if youve come across my blog from bloggerland and wish to hop along then please start back HERE.

This blog hop  is all about cats, cat awareness and National Cat day so heres some projects on the cats in my life.

This is GYPSY one of my four legged  black furry friends that shares my life - this SB LO has been featured in some magazines and has won me some competitions - i love it lots and am thinking of putting it in a frame.
Gypsy is a rescue cat that Jim and I got over 11 years ago - when we first moved in together we decided we wanted a cat and trawled all the usual places and managed to find this little bundle of fun at just under 1 year old - now shes turned into a little monster but we love her dearly !

This next LO is of a poor puss cat called Pumpkin who used to visit my mum and dads garden. Poor pumpkin was very violently treated by thugs 2 years ago and was left bearly alive. After his ordeal and many operations the wee thing fought on and survived. However it was not meant to be as about 6 months after his horrendous time he was sadly run over by a car on the road between his and my mums house. This poor puss had such a tragic short life but he did brighten up everyones days when he popped over for his daily visits to my mums house. Although he wasnt a family cat he was loved and is sadly missed. He is now over rainbow bridge and im sure playing and dancing with other fluffy creatures. :-(
This layout shows him in my mum and dads birdhouse pretending he can fly!!

This is a card i created with a lovely kitten and sentiment verse from Barbara Gray, embossed with WOW platinum powders. The flowers also covered in wow powders - triple embossed then punched.

My last project is a papermache cat that i have covered in purple leopard print decopatch papers and then glazed. I have added a little purple bow around his neck to top it off. This now proudly sits in the computer room at my mum and dads house

I hope you like my creations for todays hop - id appreciate if you left me a comment as i love to know what you think. Barbara is offering  fabby blog candy  for this hop so please make sure you hop along to all the blogs and leave your comments to be eligible.

Thanks for hopping with me today and  your next hop stop is HERE - hope to see you again tomorrow.
