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.

Joni O

04-18-2008, 03:24 AM
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:

Thanks Jennifer! Mine went out today with my Maries! Hopefully they won't be too "uppity" to ride along with the kitties!

4596 4597

04-26-2008, 10:35 PM
I like the colors you used in the first one. Are those real hieroglyphics in the background?

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.

04-27-2008, 06:35 AM
I would like to join too !

04-27-2008, 08:58 AM

The photo pool has been updated and the link is now active.

04-28-2008, 06:31 PM
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!

04-28-2008, 08:00 PM
Done and mailed. I made an extra one for our hostess. Pick whichever you want! ;)

I also made a fifth one for myself since I loved these so much! :cute:

04-28-2008, 08:39 PM
Too funny about your cat, Kat!

Both of your cards turned out great! I will keep an eye out for yours misskoolaid.

04-29-2008, 08:32 PM
Ibus inspired me to create Ra:
the cat that walks like an Egyptian.

04-29-2008, 08:36 PM

Fun & funky cat card #2.

cute card ;)

05-01-2008, 12:58 AM
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.

05-03-2008, 05:17 PM
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.

I've gotten some odd looks at the post office when buying postage. I'm waiting for our local law enforcement or DEA or ATF or some group to be waiting on me one of these days. I know the lady at the counter:jiggy: is so curious she's ready to pop!!!!

Great cats Meow2000.

05-13-2008, 06:26 PM
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.

05-13-2008, 06:37 PM
Ah, such delimmas. ;) I will keep an eye out patti!

05-14-2008, 12:28 PM
Yeah!!! My cards are done and will be sent tomorrow! :)

05-14-2008, 03:42 PM
I love the cats! I keep making cats and throwing them away. Apparently I don't have a funky bone in my body but I've got two down and will strive to make the next ones truly funky...argh.

05-15-2008, 01:51 AM

In case anyone doesn't catch my post in member news I will be leaving for a mini vacation Thursday morning (5/22) and will not have access to the internet. I'm not sure if we will be returning Saturday or staying through until Monday.

Someone will be checking my mail daily for those that have already mailed their cards. I will catch up on the swap thread and post trader ratings when I return.

Great cat cards everyone.

Mine went in the mail this am.

05-20-2008, 07:30 PM
My cards are finished. I can send tomorrow.

I'm a little confused. I keep seeing 4 cards but it is 3 of 3, right? I can make another but I wasn't sure. ;) or is the 4th just an extra thanks for giving the swap...which is also good to do.

05-20-2008, 08:19 PM
Thanks for letting me know altermyworld and castle36. I will be on the watch for your cards.

Castle - Yes, the swap is 3/3. Some people make a fourth card as a thank you but this is by no means required!

05-20-2008, 10:17 PM
Received cards today from merlin princess and jean!

Just a reminder I am going out of town for a few days and will not have access to the internet. Someone is checking my mail daily, so no worries on that. I will respond to any pms, update the thread and leave trader ratings when I return.

05-22-2008, 01:24 PM
Have fun hun.

05-22-2008, 01:37 PM
