With the 4th of July just two days away, I decided to do some patriotic-themed art for Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. I used one of the photos from the Where’s the Loot post photo session. It was quite blurry, but with the colorful toys I thought I could turn it into something interesting.


Calista Jo's Caturday Art is a salute to America.


neonI used PicMonkey to edit the photo using three different effects: burst, paint and smudge. The frame was from PiZap.

Cat4-001Tomorrow marks week #99 of our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. Astrid will be here as your host with an extra special selfie. Kitties Blue and I apologize for not making it to the blogs of all those who entered the hop last Sunday.

We also have been negligent in visiting this week. Dad Tom left town again about 28 hours after returning from BlogPaws, so the kitties and I are super busy just trying to keep up with all the daily chores. We promise to get back on track tomorrow and this next week. We hope you like us well enough not to hold this temporary laxity against us.

Thank you, friends!

What a purrfectly patriotic piece of art! Great job, Calista Jo, with a little help from the mom I’m sure!

It sure sounds you’re all keeping busy! No worries about not being able to visit as much recently – I think we all know how that goes sometimes. Purrs, and hopefully you all get in some nice relaxation this weekend. We’ll see you tomorrow for Sunday Selfies!
