Wendy your cards are wonderful, I esp. like the wide-eyed cat in front of the bookshelf. He looks like he's waiting till everyone is asleep and then intends to climb the bookshelf.

Thank you for your kind words! And to be honest, it made my day to read I inspired some of you to join this swap!:jiggy:


... I esp. like the wide-eyed cat in front of the bookshelf. He looks like he's waiting till everyone is asleep and then intends to climb the bookshelf.

Joni, I totally agree with you ... looks like he's got his eyes wide open! But eh ... he's wearing glasses ... at least that's what I have been trying to draw! :biglaugh:

I like the colors you used in the first one. Are those real hieroglyphics in the background?

Ibus
04-26-2008, 10:51 PM
Not strictly, cos most of them have colours and I just did them all in black, but I did get them off a hieroglyphic alphabet. Gold cat doesn't show up so well in the photo though.

My first fun & funky cat is Lady. I cheated; Lady is a real cat, considerably bigger than most Thanksgiving turkeys. The only fantastic part of this collage -- she's not really green. :spinny: Her shape is accurate!
Enjoying the swap!

My cards are done, just have to put 'em together with backs and then they should be ready for scanning and mailing. I did my favorite funky fun cat in two poses and several different colors. Now I have to also decide which ones to send. The one I really wanted to include didn't come out so good, so I guess I'll be keeping that one.

LOL thank you both. I was kind of fond of the funny wrinkled looking one. I named it Funky Feline, LOL.

I got to the post office and it was really busy so I just put a 58cent and a 41cent stamp to be sure that it's totally covered, and dropped it in the mailbox with a 5:30 pick up so their on the way.

My cats are ready to fly. I have two major problems. I can't show them to you because the scans really screwed up the colors and they are nowhere near looking like they really are. I'd be embarassed to put them in the gallery. The other problem is that I've made seven of them and now I have to decide which ones to send. So anyway, they go in the mail tomorrow and you'll just have to be surprised.

blueskysunburn
