Hi all and a great day to you! I'm hoping for lots more sun today after the week of rain we've had and the awful torrential rains from yesterday. I have 5 new videos to shoot and I need SUN to get them done, so crossing fingers. I have passed the point of exhaustion this week so I have no idea what I might say in the videos, LOL! I have to transport children back and forth to sport practices all week too which is disconcerting to my planned day because I have to keep stopping, lol, but that's just the way of the world! I tell my husband all the time that when you work from home you get LESS done during the day and end up working at night to catch up--unlike going to an office where you don't have to start & stop to do things around the house KWIM! Much different! Anywho, I'll keep this short so I can get on with business today and leave you beeeeee too!

As most of you know I have 5 cats and 2 dogs so I love working with cute animal images! This one called "Catching Some Rays" just made me laugh out loud, my cats are always getting into something every hour of the day. It's like having a daycare full of little children I tell ya :) The sketch I used is this week's SCS Sketch #294 (I flipped it) and I used some Cosmo Cricket and SU papers--love the vibrant, fun colors! I used my Bow Easy to create a bow and then I clipped the bows and frayed them all for a fun look. The sentiment is from an older Hannah Stamps set that I have been dyin' to use and this image was perfect for it--I can just hear the mouse squeakin' "NO You Di'n't!!", LOL! can't you? That aqua background was embossed with a new CB folder set "Retro Kitchen".
The image was colored with Copics and then I added some Diamond Glaze to the fish bowl and kitty's nose for a glassy shine--stickles on the x-ray frame for bling! My metal tag I bought in a pack of 20 from my local office supply store.
Hope you'll stop by to join in the challenge at the store blog HERE and stop by the Paper Romance store HERE as well! See ya tomorrow with hopefully a video or two :)
