I am featuring Astrid again today as a gift for her boyfriend Sampson (Kitty Cat Chronicles) for the lovely photos his mom, Emily, made for us as well as a thank you for the Pounce Treats and fun plastic egg treat holders Sampson sent her.
I created this using AdornPic and did nothing more than add the frame and slightly change the saturation, hue and contrast on the photo to give more depth to Astrid’s fur color.
We are joining Athena Cat Goddess’ Caturday Art Blog Hop again this week. Click on the graphic to join or view the other submissions.
As a head’s up to all our blog friends: I have had to erase the hard drive on my computer and try to re-install everything. Though I backed up the commuter immediately prior to erasing, many things seem to have disappeared or are hiding after the re-install. Currently, I cannot get any of my photos back onto the computer. I have just gotten e-mail working again and Mauricio back into Cat Scouts.
While, I am dealing with the current situation, the kitties may not be visiting or commenting as much as usual. Please forgive them. I hope to have things back to normal sooner than later, but I am not holding my breath so please don’t hold yours!
Goodness this is a beautiful picture
Another thing the Dad would love to be doing
Oh My! The Typist has been so busy we have not been visiting either and now we hear you have puter problems. The Dad hates when that happens and has gotten very good at putting our photos on that little drive thingie
Purrs things are better by now
oh we are so very sorry about your hard drive! Computer problems are just the WORST! We do think adding in the saturation made the photo POP!
That’s a beautiful frame but Astrid is pretty even without it.
That is such a cute picture! You did really good. All the colors look so good together too.
I like the photo. I’m sorry to hear about your computer issues. I think most of us can sympathize with you.
Beautiful photo of Astrid. So sorry to hear about your computer problems and we do hope that everything will be okay.
LOVE the shadow in the photograph. Mommy is having fits thinking about losing stuff off her computer…
What a pawsome photo of Astrid. OH dear we are so sorry about the computer problems. We hope you can resolve it without any further problems.
What a beautiful picture of Astrid!
We’re sorry about the computer problems. We hope you can get it all sorted out.
Sorry to hear of your computer problems and hope you find all your hidden treasures. Been there, done that. 🙂

She’s beautiful. Meez knows Sampson’s luvin’ seein’ hers.
Luv and Hugs and Kitty Kisses 🙂
You’re pretty as a picture, Astrid!
Great picture. Hope you can find all your stuff on the computer. That sounds like a big and scary thing to do. Hope it all works out for you. Take care.
Astrid is pawsomely gorgeous. Of course besides Tuxies, momma loves Torties.
That is beautious! Oh no, those computer problems are the worst.
Sampson is one lucky mancat to have found such a stunning girlfriend. The colorful frame certainly sets off Astrids natural beauty. Mom Janet my mom feels your pain when it comes to computer issues. She’s always loosing things on her computer and they show up in the oddest places and that is without doing any major overhauls of the system. We hope you find everything soon.
Purrs to all….

Oh dearie me….sorry about the computer woes – all those photos are probably hiding in there somewhere and I’m sure you’ll find them eventually!!! Love the artful photo of the beautiful Astrid. I’m sure Sampson will love having that to gaze lovingly at……..they are a lovely couple indeed! Hope you have a super weekend……it’s going to be a beauty up here and I’m guessing down there where you are too!! 🙂
Astrid looks mighty pleased with herself and the results of the artwork. Well done!
That is fabulous. It made us smile. Grrr to computer gremlins. Hope you manage to sort it out. Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly
Athena and Marie
Great picture! Sorry about the computer problems – that stinks!
What a pretty frame for a pretty girl!
Pretty as a picture but poor you. We’re going through computer hell too.
Purrfect Spring photo…
Oh Astrid, this photo is beautiful! Sampson is all googly-eyed looking at it. He says that he could look at it all day long. We are so glad you got his gift and are enjoying your treats. We hope you have a good time treat hunting with those plastic eggs! Sampson sends lots of hugs and kitty kisses!
And Mom Emily sends lots of hugs too – so sorry to hear about your computer problems. Those aren’t any fun to deal with. Good luck getting everything back to working! Hope it doesn’t take long, for your sanity’s sake 😉
Oh Astrid, you is beautiful in your pretty frame. Sampson is going to loves it.
Good luck on the hard drive issues, our Mama has been dealing with a dead drive too but she is almost finished.
Beautiful kitty! Good luck with getting your computer up and running again. Happy Caturday!
Beautiful tortie 🙂
She is very beautiful. She reminds me of Bill’s cat, Tootsie. She had green eyes, where Astrid’s are gold. Tootsie was about 6 lbs., a tiny thing with a huge personality.
The tinkering I did with the the photo actually changed the color of Astrid’s eyes. They are green with a darker green circle around the iris with a little lighter green ring on the outside. Several of the eight have those same eyes. Astrid is somewhat bigger than your Tootsie, weighing in at 7 pounds 13 ounces. Next to all the bruiser around here, she looks teensy. Hugs, Janet
beautiful photo and our hearts go out to you with the computer woes!! Love, Caren and Cody
