ARTY ASTRID

Caturday Art

Astrid and her gorgeous tortie furs are here today for Caturday Art. As I mentioned a while back, she’s been coming upstairs and joining me in bed with some regularity. The photo I used for the art was taken when she was sitting on one of Mau’s blankets from Allie (Friends Furever), which is always at the foot of Dad Tom’s and my bed.

 

 

Caturday ArtIt’s pretty amazing how little I did to this photo, as I love to pile on the effects. I used my “go-to” app, Painnt and added the “Toons” effect. I made no changes to it. I experimented with some different frames and borders from other apps, but ended up with this frame, also from Painnt.

As I haven’t done so in a really long time, I made a puzzle for you this week. Click on the thumbnail at the bottom of this post to access it.

Astrid is joining the Caturday Art blog hop hosted by Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty. To join in or just check out Athena’s art or the art of other bloggers, click on her badge.

Special Blogoversary Sunday Selfies

Please make certain you join us tomorrow for our Sunday Selfies blog hop as well as our 7th blogoversary celebration. I have no idea who your host will be, but I do know that Kitties Blue plan to review a few milestones from the past seven years.

Also, we will have a comment-a-thon with $1 for each comment going to the shelter or rescue chosen by a commenter selected in a random drawing. Looking forward to seeing your smiling faces tomorrow.

FRIENDLY FILL-INS AND FELINE FRIDAY

by Janet Blue on July 19, 2019

Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #166

On Fridays, Kitties Blue and I enjoy joining the Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop. It is hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs). It’s a fun way to learn a bit more about our fellow bloggers.

Each Thursday, on both blogs, you can find the four sentences to be completed. On Friday, post your filled-in sentences and link to the hop on Lorianne’s blog. To go there, click on the badge at the left.

My completions are in teal italics.

1. I have been contemplating giving CBD oil to Sawyer, as most of you know.

2. I want to write a book about cat poetry and art that I have created for this blog.

3. People should worry less about their personal wants and desires and more about helping those who are less fortunate.

4. I want to make the world a better place by continually reducing my carbon footprint.

Feline Friday

This is a blog hop hosted by Sandee from Comedy Plus. As she loves Cooper Murphy as if he were her own, he asked to represent Kitties Blue on the hop. He does apologize for his blurry photo.

A drawing will be held using Random.org giving one commenter the opportunity to select the recipient of the donation. Even if you don’t plan on entering the hop, please drop by and leave comment.

COOPER’S CATURDAY ART: THREE VERSIONS

July 13, 2019

Caturday Art I had a difficult time deciding which version of today’s art to use for this post, so I am presenting all three. It’s not unusual for me to create several versions of art each week before deciding which I like best. The basis for all three versions was created in Painnt using the […]
