High as a Kite lol

Morning and I have 2 DT posts today the 2nd one is for the "Make It Sparkly"challenge at Get Creative-sponsored by Charlie's Stamps and I used the cute image Birthday Cat Balloons coloured with promarkers then glossy accents and glamour dust on the balloons.

Now I was wondering where to go with this image-then my son text me -because I had bought my cats some Garfield treats which they didn't like I gave them to my sons cats-WELL-they now beg from him and Rosie and if that doesn't work they wait till they go to work -open the drawer and help themselves lol they are now addicted but as you can only buy them at the shop near me does that make me their dealer ??? lol.

I decided to make a tag from cereal packaging to attach to the next box(or two!)of treats-I find it hilarious tbh!The background made using oxide ink smooshed onto cardstock,then baby wipe(yes I know a no-no but got to use them up)through a TH stencil-oxide through same stencil then script stamp and paws stamps are craft mag freebies,a couple of dictionary pieces added,twine from stash and done.

This is an adorable tag, Carol, so happy and carefree. And fun story about the cats, fancy getting them fixed on Garfield drugs!

Great story. Love your cat tag with the beautiful balloons and gorgeous background and love that you've created it using a cereal packaging. Such clever and funny animals, lol....always enjoy reading your stories.. We have adopted Alfred from the local cat shelter, a sensitive soul that needs lots of love. He has 24 toes...and he looks adorable with his big thumbs.
Hope you are well and safe

Chrissy said...

What a fabulous cute and sparkly tag Carol,love the background ad those paw prints and what a lovely thing to do for your Sons NOW biscuit addicted Holly loves Temptations, the add on the telly shows the man shaking the box and the cat bursts through the wall to get them, well, that does not happen here but she certainly comes running if she has not come home on time..

Anne Buckingham said...

In love with this project. As a cat person I am delighted with the image of the cat floating away on balloons. The background you did is lovely with the foot prints all over. Love the tag.

Up up and away and he looks so happy Sweet tag...............Lis

CaroleAnn said...

I am still laughing over this. The tag is great and the image is just adorable and so perfect for your funny story that goes with it!!!
My son has a cat called Teddy and he is a tabby like my Sam. Now Sam does not like catnip at all!!! And does not like treats - only his bowl of wet food and dry food. I wish he liked the other stuff because I have seen how Teddy behaves when he knows treats are coming his way - they have to hide it on him - and it is absolutely hysterical how bananas he goes when he gets a little bit of his catnip!!!!! You are a good kitty grandma:)

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, that's funny about the cats and their treats! This cat looks like it's tripping on something! Sure makes a cute tag being lifted away by the sparkly balloons.

Diane said...

Hugs Diane
