Caturday Art the Hopeful Edition

This was a color challenge, Fenris decided to help Mom with this one.

This was a LAD (it got interrupted due to technical difficulties) the prompt was to make the glass embellishments (castle & heart) look 3D while still remaining clear. Mom did this by making a copy and giving the copy on the bottom a shadow, then blending it. Before she did this you couldn't even really see the castle it blended into the page so well.

This is another LAD, it was from Monday. The prompt was to clip papers to your brushes. Notice the plaid leaves.

Mask Challenge 

Rosie's Mini Kit.

Scraptlift with a twist, every year she ask us to pick a word for the year. Last year Mom choose empathy. This year she picked hopeful.

And this was a Word Art Challenge.


Mom also did the Signature Challenge.


Fenris Friday

 Do you ever have what were you thinking moments? I mean really what was Mom thinking when she took this picture. Mom claims I moved. Well maybe it does look as if I am getting up, but...well maybe she should be a bit speeder with the picture taking. ~Fenris, reporting for ATCAD

Thankful Thursday

We are thankful for somewhere warm to lounge around. I am also thankful Chimera allowed me to lay so close to her. This is as close as I have ever gotten when we are sleeping. She isn't a cuddle bug like Yin and Scylla. Although I don't feel very special as she has also slept this close to Tuiren and Fenris. She likes sleeping in their beds. She doesn't much care if the dogs are already in them. Most of the time the dogs move when she climbs in bed with them but sometimes they stay put.

We are thankful the forsythia is doing OK, it started blooming before Christmas (way to early) and is a mass of blooms now even though we have had temperatures in the 20s.~Yang, reporting for ATCAD

Winsome Wednesday

Mom says I have been advertising myself as a black cat all these years when really I am a Tortoiseshell, although that isn't right either as I have a white patch. Mom says I am uniquely Yin and that is alright with both of us.

Mom says my coat has gotten lighter as I age, Scylla's fur has done the same thing as a youngster she had the same vibrant calico colors as Chimera but as she aged they got lighter. We wonder if Chimera's will.

 Mom says no matter what color my fur is I am her pretty girl. ~ Miss Yin, reporting for ATCAD

Talking on Tuesday

The young one likes to feed the fish when he comes to visit.

Alasandra was trying to take pictures of the fish, she got a nice picture of the bread and well maybe a fish, but then again maybe not.

The young one has a routine, feed the fish.

 Although last time he and Alasandra (he calls her Grandma) tried to catch some fish. Alasandra said she touched one, I am not sure I believe her.

After they feed the fish they feed the hens (you will probably see pictures soon) and then me. ~Lady O, reporting for ATCAD

Mancat Monday

When it's cold out we stay inside and dream of warmer weather.

 I caught a mouse last week before it turned cold, I left it at the door for Mom, but she didn't seem to appreciate it. ~Yang, reporting for ATCAD

Wow 2022 is still going great I am still appearing on Scylla Sunday as I should. And I nailed my selfie on the first try. ~Scylla, reporting for ATCAD
