Snuggle Bug

I like making AND receiving handmade cards…

How about YOU?!

I made this card for my husband’s birthday recently:

The holidays are not always easy…

Snuggle someone you love today, even if they bug you a little!

Happy Wednesday AND Thanksgiving to those who celebrate!

Cheers! 🙂

A Weird Bug?

I interrupt this blogging break…

To show you this strange bug that appeared in my art journal:

Wednesday’s can be about weird birds…

And weird bugs!

One never knows what creative bug will land in my sketchbook next…

Happy Weird “Bug” Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Cat and Mouse

I didn’t realize when I created my cat and mouse using text from “Hoyle’s Up-To-Date Card Games – copyright 1940” that there was an actual card game called:   Cat and Mouse!

Apparently, the game is AKA Spite and Malice, a card game for two players in a competitive solitaire.  Both players try to be the first to get rid of a pile of “pay-off cards” by playing them to center stacks which are started with an ace and continue in upward sequence to a king.

Here is my cat:

I used my gelli-printed deli papers for the other papers.

Happy Whimsical Wednesday Friends!  🙂

Jakob Cats

Introducing Jakob Cats – A Dutch Poet for today’s Whimsical Wednesday story:

Who is the REAL Jakob Cats?  And why is this his favorite dish?

Here is my story…

Jakob Cats was known as “Father Cats” because of his love of cats.  Jakob took in many stray cats during his lifetime that kept him company while he wrote his poetry.  At one time, Mr. Cats owned over 30 cats at once!  :-0

Having owned so many cats, Mr. Cats started to look like a cat himself.  He grew several face whiskers extra long and painted the end of his nose a light pink color.

Mr. Cats recently purchased a new “calico” coat with a matching hat that looked like cat ears.  He wore it to his mother’s home when she made him his favorite birthday dinner, “Veal Stew with Prunes.”  He was the cat’s meow in his mother’s eyes.

Now it is your turn to tell a story!  I hope that you have fun giving it your own creative spin!  I’d love if you shared it with me!

Happy tales to you!  🙂

When Life Gives You Lemons…

When life gave me lemons, I tried to draw and paint them in my sketchbook…

And create a collage using an old photograph:

And create the beginning of a story…

School was starting soon and all the kids dreaded Mrs. Lemon’s class!  She hardly ever smiled because…  Now it’s your turn to finish the story in a sentence or two!  🍋😉🌟

Did you have a teacher that you dreaded in school?!  I’d love to hear about it!

Happy Whimsical Wednesday friends!  I hope I gave you a smile today!!  😄
