Mom tried to give me to Dad yesterday for his birthday. He said he already had “one” just like me and turned down the gift. After our nice post for him yesterday, I think that was totally rude on his part. Who could, in his right mind, turn down something as adorable as I am? Pffft!

In an attempt to make me feel less dejected, Mom agreed to make me the subject of our Caturday Art project.

She began by turning my photo into a Pencil Sketch using Picasa. She then added the Comic Book filter using the same program. The photo below is the result.




We both found this to be quite nice, which is why we are sharing it with you. We have, however, seen similar art projects and so decided to take it a step further by adding the Engraving effect using And finally she returned to Picasa for the frame. Here is the final result. Hope you like it.

Cat4We will be hosting our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop tomorrow. We had a great turnout last week with a total of 50 submissions (including our own). We are so thankful for all of you who have entered our blog hop. You are great friends and supporters, and we hope to see you again tomorrow.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia

p.s. On behalf of our dad, all of us Kitties Blue would like to thank everyone for their kind birthday wishes yesterday.

Very cool art photo, as usual. Your mom always does a great job with these. We enjoyed your photo, and we can’t believe your dad didn’t accept you as a gift! We think it’s probably because he mistook you for a Lily-Olivia imposter and didn’t want to replace his REAL Lily-Olivia with an imposter. That must be the only explanation. 🙂

I don’t know if I should wish your Dad a Happy Birthday after he rejected you. That is so not cool and wrong on so many different layers. What’s wrong with have two of you? I like your “rope” whiskers in the comic pic.
