Caturday Art

Today is a super special day, and I don’t mean New Year’s Eve; though, it is that. But most importantly, it is my boyfriend, Cat Scout Charles Elbert Mallory’s, birthday!

I asked Mom if I, Lisbeth, could do the art today as a birthday gift for Charles, and she didn’t hesitate in granting my request. Before I present my art, I have a little present for Charles.


Happy Birthday Charles


Just two nights ago, I purloined this cricket away from Astrid so I could send it to Charles. Unfortunately the cricket disappeared. I suspect Astrid ate him. But Dad Tom did get a photo of me to share with Charles. I certainly hope he appreciates my effort!

Even though I could not send Charles that tasty cricket, I did make this art especially for him. I’m pretty certain he’ll like it.


Happy Birthday Charles


Mom helped me with my art. We used a filter in Dreamscope and then added two different borders in piZap and finally the black border using Picasa.

caturdayartbannerI am entering my art in Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. We never miss this hop, as experimenting with the many free photo-editing apps is one of Mom’s favorite things to do. If you’d like to enter some art of your own and/or view some of the other cool creations, click on Athena’s badge.

Sunday Selfies

Cat4-001For our first selfies hop of 2017, we will have a guest host. It is a very special kitty, so we all have our paws together praying that you will stop by and meet her.

We were so happy to have 40 participants in our Christmas Day hop. We know that was a busy day for most of our friends, so we really appreciate those who made the effort to hop. Just remember, even if your humans party a bit too much tonight, and you cannot make it by on Sunday, the hop remains open each week until Thursday at midnight.

Wishing you all a fun and SAFE New Year’s Eve.

Purrs and paw-pants, Lisbeth, with love and kisses to Charles

We’re sure Charles would much rather have a beautiful picture of you, Lizbeth, and not that cricket. Well, maybe he would like that cricket. 😉

Charles Huss December 31, 2016 at 2:48 pm

Happy Birthday Charles. I’m sure that picture will make it very special for him.

The Menagerie Mom December 31, 2016 at 12:12 pm

How could Charles not like this gorgeous art of you, Lisbeth? We certainly love this beautiful piece! You are just too lovely for words. Oh, and great job on the cricket! Even if it got away, you have photographic evidence of your skill and prowess, so we call that a job well done. We will certainly be seeing you tomorrow for a New Year selfie, or selfies, depending on who cooperates. Happy New Year’s Eve to all of you!

Oh Sweetie, that is an adorable piece of art work. Your friend will just love it. I love all the bright colors in it too.

Your art is beautiful. A perfect present for your boyfriend, Charles.

Charles Mallory December 31, 2016 at 8:06 am

My darling Ms. Lisbeth…………a cricket would have been such a great addition to my bug collection but the picture dad Tom took of you stalking the cricket is even better. I sure hope Astrid enjoyed the crunch of that cricket if she was the one to get it. I think todays Athena’s picture entry is the most beautiful one done of you this year. You and your mom did a pawsome job in its creation. Thank you for making my day so much more special.
Mom and dad promised me my favorite food tonight as a treat LIVE DEAD SHRIMP…Yum.
Happy New Year to you and your family and loads of love and kisses to you my sweet..your mancat Charles

Oh I’m certain Charles will LOVE the beautiful artwork Lisbeth! A cricket (dead or alive) would have been a lovely gift but I think the portrait is a much better and more “permanent” gift. We will be at the Selfie Hop tomorrow……wouldn’t miss the first day of the year with my friends at Kitties Blue!

Love, Angel Sammy

Angel, Kirby and Max December 31, 2016 at 2:55 am

We know Charles will love that art! It is beautiful

McGuffy's Reader December 31, 2016 at 12:27 am

That is a great piece of art and a perfect gift. Mom is special, so I am sure she loved helping with it. Happy New Year! Love you guys! ❤
