Jigsaw Puzzle

SAWYER’S KALEIDOSCOPIC CATURDAY ART

Kaleidoscopic Caturday Art

Sawyer is here today in Lisbeth’s fish bed, which she received several years ago from her boyfriend Charles. Charles is an angel, but his gift remains and is a favorite of all the Kitties Blue who are able to fit inside. The day Sawyer was enjoying it, the fish was atop a warm radiator and in a sunpuddle. Pretty much everything a cat could want, except for maybe some nommy treats to munch.

The photo makes it look as if Sawyer’s head is not attached to his body, but he was in one piece the last time I checked.

To create the art, I used the Latham effect from Painnt with a slight change in hue and bump in saturation. The frame is again from the favpng app.

Here’s a jigsaw for all my puzzling friends.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Kitties Blue and I sure hope you are getting ready to snap your selfie for tomorrow’s blog hop. We always look forward to seeing your selfie as do all your other friends. As per usual, I have no idea who will be your host tomorrow. The gang may be discussing it among themselves, but if so, they have not put forth a candidate. I actually suspect they are all trying to push another to the front of line and avoid the duty themselves. But rest assured, someone will be here tomorrow to greet you.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a terrific Caturday.

 

COLORFUL GINGER TABBY ART

Caturday Art

I swear the only thing Kitties Blue do is nap, except at mealtime, of course. Cooper Murphy was enjoying a sunpuddle nap, and is now a colorful ginger tabby.

I created the art with the Faaantasia (yes, that’s how it is spelled) effect from Painnt. I bumped up both the contrast and the saturation and added analog coloring. To that I added the XOXO filter from piZap at 100 percent. The frame is from the favpng app.

Here’s a puzzle for those of you who are fans.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

I don’t know where the time goes, but another week has flown by, and it’s time for Sunday Selfies tomorrow. With any luck, I will remember to schedule the post, unlike Friday. If you missed yesterday’s post, it’s because I forgot to schedule it, and I only published it a couple hours before this one. It has an adorable photo of Kizmet, so I really hope you will check it out. The link is at the bottom of this post.

But, I do digress. Kitties Blue and I will be looking for your adorable selfie tomorrow. So, please do join us on the hop. You don’t even need to post tomorrow to do so. The hop remains open through Thursday.

Thanks for joining us today. Enjoy your Caturday.

 

SUNPUDDLE SHARING CATS

Caturday Art

Calista Jo was in her usual snoozing spot and graciously allowed Audrey to share her sunpuddle.

To create today’s art I used the Starry Night effect from Painnt and tinkered with most of the settings and then added Summer coloring. The frame, as usual, is from the favpng app.

Here is a puzzle for those of you who enjoy them.

Friendly Fill-Ins

The Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop is hosted each Friday by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs). They publish the fill-in sentences on their blogs each Thursday. To join the hop, click on the badge at the left.

We didn’t post yesterday, so I am sharing our completions today. Once again, I had some helpers. Both Sawyer and Stinky took on fill-ins. I only had to do one myself. We all used teal italics for our fill-ins.

1. Sawyer: I hope my Easter basket has lots of treats in it.

2. March has been super windy with unpredictable temperatures.

3. Stinky: If there ever was a time to take an epic adventure with Periwinkle, it’s now.

4. Stinky: I have lots of planning to do in preparation for my next adventure with Periwinkle.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

I have no idea which of the Kitties Blue will be your host for Selfies tomorrow. I am relatively sure, however, that s/he will have some sort of decorative frame representing Easter on their photo. Many of you, I suspect, will be enjoying time with family and friends. So, if you are unable to join us tomorrow, Kitties Blue and I will understand. We do hope you will find time to drop by and add your selfie before the hop ends Thursday at 11:59 p.m.

Until then we thank you for joining us today and wish you a happy Caturday filled with treats, purrs and cuddles.

 

 

MINE…ALL MINE!

Caturday Art

 

Mine...all mine: Grey cat sits atop a pile of birthday gifts in an attempt to claim them for herself.

 

Kizmet thinks everything that comes into this house belongs to her, especially if it arrives in a box. Here she is sitting on birthday gifts believing in her heart they are for her. Since one of the packages has kitty wrapping paper, I guess it was an obvious assumption on her part. However, that scowl on her face is the result of her being told they were not for her.

To create today’s art I used the Favorite Forest effect from Painnt and changed the hue slightly. The frame is once again from the favpng app.

I did make a jigsaw puzzle as well.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Tomorrow will be a special occasion for our Sunday Selfies post. It will be week number 500 for our hop. When I started Sunday Selfies, I never expected it would be still running almost ten years later. For that matter, I didn’t expect to still be blogging after so many years. It would sure be great if you could join us by sharing a selfie.

Tomorrow also will be special for another reason. The kitties and I will be paying tribute to our special friend (and the mom to Tyebe, Cooper Murphy’s girl friend), Jean Neilson. We have some special content shared with me by Jean’s terrific husband, Bill. So, even if you don’t hop with us, Kitties Blue and I do hope you will visit.

Until then…have a terrific Caturday. Thanks for joining us today.

 

ASTRID IN RIBBONS & BOWS

Caturday Art

The subject of today’s art is Astrid lounging in one of the indoor cat trees.

 

Tortoise Shell (tortie) cat art in red, white and blue with a blue frame and large bows at upper corners

 

To create the art of Astrid I used the Bleeding Dragon effect from Painnt with a slight change of hue and bump in saturation. I added the Bubbly filter from piZap and a ribbons and bows frame from favpng.

I created a puzzle but trimmed the edges down so you wouldn’t have so much white space around the sides, top and bottom.

Friendly Fill-Ins

As Kitties Blue and I did not post yesterday, I am including Friendly Fill-Ins today.

The Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop is hosted each Friday by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs). They publish the fill-in sentences on their blogs each Thursday. To join the hop, click on the badge at the left.

Sawyer, who often helps me with fill-ins, has helped me out again today. We both used teal italics for our fill-ins. Any explanations are in parentheses.

1. Sawyer: If someone offered me a free lifetime supply of treats, I would accept it.

2. If someone offered me a free gun, I would refuse it.

3. I have the sound of each cat’s footsteps and sound of their voices (not all of them meow) memorized.

4. Everything, but especially technology, has really changed since I was younger.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Tomorrow is that day when you share your adorableness with all your friends and Kitties Blue by joining our blog hop. Though most of the Kitties Blue do not enjoy taking selfies, they always love seeing yours as do I. Amazingly your host has been selected and already taken a selfie for tomorrow.

Recently, three of our dear kitty friends have run off to the Rainbow Bridge (Cathy Keisha, Loulou and Dai$y). We will remember them tomorrow as well.

Thanks for joining us today. Kitties Blue and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

 

 

SAWYER’S SELFIE WITH THE LORAX

Sunday Selfies: Week #498

Our Sunday Selfies hop today is in honor of Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel), whose birthday was yesterday.

 

 

Saturday was also Read Across America Day and the month of March is National Reading Month. You can find out more about Read Across America on the National Education Association web site.

Sawyer looks so cute in his selfie that I created a bonus puzzle. Hope you enjoy doing it.

Hopping Time

All the Kitties Blue are looking forward to having you join Sawyer on this week’s special Dr. Seuss Sunday Selfies hop. I created some frames you might want to use for your selfie. I reposted them yesterday, so if you want to check them out, click on the link to yesterday’s post at the end of this one.

Hope you have found some time to do some reading this weekend. Wishing you an easy Sunday with a good book.

Thanks for joining us, the Lorax and Dr. Seuss on the hop!

 



TORTIE & TORBIE ART

Caturday Art

Audrey and Calista Jo are the subjects of today’s Caturday Art. Surprisingly, they were both awake when I took their photo. I actually took about ten photos trying to get them to look at me. However, wherever I moved, Audrey looked away. So, only Calista Jo is looking forward.

To create today’s art, I went back to Painnt. I used the Hialeah effect. After applying the effect, I sharpened the image by 20 percent. The frame  is from the favpng app.

I made a puzzle, but removed the ornate part of the frame to eliminate what would have been a small white border.

Dr. Seuss Sunday Selfies Reminder

Tomorrow our selfies hop will celebrate Dr. Seuss, whose birthday is today. I thought you might like to celebrate by using a special frame for your selfie. I have made a few from which you can select. Of course, you are not required to use a frame, and if you choose to, it does not need to be one of these.

As I do not have a Looking Back post for you this week, I have made a bonus puzzle for those of you who enjoy them. I created the art for the puzzle using the A.I. generator from piZap.

NAPPING ANGEL ART

Caturday Art 

I do not have any new photos of the Kitties Blue, so I dug back through my photo archives. I found a sweet photo of a napping Misty May. It is from October 3, 2020.

 

Tuxedo cat, who is now an angel, napping in an art creation.

 

To create the art I used the Finger Paint Doodle effect from Painnt. I changed the hue of the original art, bumped the saturation slightly and added Vintage coloring. With piZap I added the Abstract filter.

Here’s a puzzle for you. Hope you enjoy it and that you liked seeing Misty May today. She is missed here by all but Astrid.
