Hello Peeps, I hope you are having a great crafty weekend ? I snagged a pretty cool FREEBIE fish this afternoon drawn by Teresa on the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Blog and I decided to use it for a masculine Christmas card for a fish loving friend. After colouring the fish I covered it with textured sticky backed plastic to give him some shine - it doesn't photograph at all well though :-( He is sitting on a pencil sketched fishy tank. The background paper and overlay are also freebies from PIXEL SCRAPPER.
Hi Guys, Just popping in quickly to say that there are lots of new items over in Fiki's craft shop..... great prices and very reasonable postage costs. I am having a browse hoping that it will kick start my Mojo, which seems to have deserted me just now ! If you want a browse - grab a coffee and head on over HERE: http://craftykittycatshop.blogspot.com
Remembrance Sunday is held in the UK and the Commonwealth of Nationsas a day to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts.
The national ceremony is held in London at the Cenotaph on Whitehall.
Two minutes' silence is held at 11 a.m., before the laying of the wreaths.
The silence represents the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, when the guns of Europe fell silent.
This silence is started by Royal Marinesbuglers sounding Last Post and ended by Royal Marines buglers sounding The Rouse. Gunners of the Royal Horse Artillery fire a gun salute at the end of the silence.
WE THANK YOU ALL
The backing paper came from an old CD of papers. Barbed wire was printed and fussy cut and a couple of poppies were cut also and decoupaged to make them stand out.
I have so enjoyed the last 6 days of the Cat Lovers' Hop and am now totally refueled with Catiness :-)
I have a small card to show today and some funny cat memes I found so here we go.....
This little card was made using a Stampendous kitty stamp coloured with Promarkers.
Here's a scary Halloween piece for using using my image POE CAT from IKEsART... which is part of my Edgar Allan POE collection and done especially to illustrate his spook story ... THE BLACK CAT, and how it ultimately got it's revenge :-D Click HEREto read it.

Welcome to the last Day of the fur-bulous CAT LOVERS' BLOG HOP 2017, as hosted and arranged by the wonderful JANIS over at HER PEACEFUL GARDEN. I have had such a blast as usual on this great Hop and have enjoyed colouring up some of my own images for a change LoL :-D
This is the 3rd year that Janis has published this event and it seems that every year more of us cat lovers and taking part.
This is also my 3rd year of participation and this year's Prize from me is a brand new cat set that I drew especially for Janis.
Each day of the Hop there will be one of these new kitties to win from this set in a special game Janis has devised. The Game for Day 6 is to share your favourite thing about this CAT LOVERs' HOP.
This card is to celebrate " OXI " Day here in Greece. It is a big celebration and there is a huge parade down in town later this morning. All the shops, banks etc are closed and everyone will be out to celebrate :-D
This ultimatum, which was presented to Metaxas by the Italian ambassador to Greece, Emanuele Grazzi (fr), shortly after 03:00 am on 28 October 1940, who had just come from a party in the Italian embassy in Athens, demanded Greece to allow Axis forces to enter Greek territory and occupy certain unspecified "strategic locations" or otherwise face war. It was allegedly answered with a single laconic word: όχι (No!). However, his actual reply was, “Alors, c’est la guerre!” (Then it is war!).
On the morning of 28 October, the Greek population took to the streets, irrespective of political affiliation, shouting 'oxi'. From 1942, it was celebrated as Oxi Day, first mostly among the members of the resistance and after the war by all the Greeks.
I superimposed a Greek Flag and added the kitty at the front.
Janis has an amazing number of fantastic Sponsors this year and there are loads of Prizes, so why not pop over and join in the cat fest :-D You will find the start of the Hop here: MAIN HOP PAGE
**** As it is a special day today and also the last day of the Hop... my little Prize will be the full set of kitties for a randomly picked comment below. I will leave this opportunity open until 31st October 2017. ****
This set will be available for purchase in my Shop IKEsART after the Hop has closed.
