Calendar Girls - February

The Calendar Girls are paying tribute to our furry friends in February.   Our hostess Kelly, would like us to have a pet included on our card creation this month.   The added challenge is to use the color red somewhere on your card.

I know what you are thinking.   She's going to do a card featuring a cat!  'Cause you know I love me some kitty!!!  Well, I am using a puppy named Harry The Dog, from Whipper Snapper. I was gifted a cute image from our girl Barb, that I had not used yet.   Harry, was begging to come out to play!

I remembered that I had a single piece of DP that would work perfect.  I have had it ever so long, so I dug it out.   I then used some ribbon I received as a prize from, Ms. Forest.   I had a little mini rubber stamp cling set that I purchased a long time ago for $1.00, that I used for the sentiment.  Here's Harry:


You may be wondering what Mia (our kitten) is up to.   She is eagerly anticipating her one year birthday in March.  We are still working on the care of her eye (dang shelter), as it is still a bit weepy.  Hoping that it will improve when she is done growing.  A good girl she is, but a kitten all the same.  

There is a heating/cooling register in our kitchen under the cabinet, along the moulding.  It is a smaller version located at your feet under the sink, horizontal under the cabinet.   It makes for toasty feet in the winter when you are doing prep work, or a great place to stretch out lengthwise if you are a kitten, while people are trying to work in the kitchen.  It must not be as warm there when no one is in the kitchen....

I was putting groceries away the other day and turned to get something out of the bag and this was what I found.  Luckily, I had my phone on the counter to snap her picture. 




I told her she will have to get a job to pay for a new Whole Foods bag, now that I cannot use this one that the cat was in, for cripe sake!  We like to ask her when she is going to work, or if any prospects have called, especially when she is all stretched or passed out in a blanket.   Mia, just gives us the squinty kitty eyes in return.
