A Place to Bark and Meow... and a new Monday's Fun Day!

I hope everyone has been having a marvelous Monday!

Yesterday, I gave you sneak peeks to images that I have been working on for a fundraiser for A Place to Bark and Meow. Bernie Berlin runs a no-kill animal shelter called "A Place to Bark" and she is raising funds to help finish off the in-door dog shelter. How do these cat images come into play? Well, the project is now called "A Place to Bark and Meow" because Lydia and her fur babies, along with Lisa Itatani and her fur babies, have teamed up with Memories Live On to get these images out to you to help raise $5,000+ for a place for the cats to stay. You all know how much I love cats... especially my Mia. :)

The first up is the white cat, image created by Claudine Hellmuth.


I took "Gigi Birds" paper by Glitz Design and trimmed it down to 6" x 8.5" and scored it at 3" and 6". I used the Word Window punch to create a notch on the inside (shorter panel) and added sticky strip tape to the sides to create a pocket. This is a gift certificate holder for a friend who likes colorful but simple things... no bling and ribbons for her! :)

Next up is this pretty little girl holding a white kitty... image created by Suzi Blu.


I used Copics to color her in and paper pieced her skirt with scrap of Glitz Design paper.

I have been making these adorable little purses made of cardstock for Mother's Day and decided to make one using more Glitz Design Paper and added her to the front of the purse.



Last up is this adorable kitty, created by Lydia Fielder.


I pressed the image into my VersaMark ink pad and covered it in ultra-thick embossing powder on both sides. When I heated it up, it hardened up nicely with a pretty sheen to make the perfect bookmark!



Please join me in supporting this wonderful cause.

How about a clear acrylic stamp set, just in time for summer vacation?


Isn't this a terrific set?

All you have to do is post here and let me know of your travels. Do you have a dream vacation? I don't get to travel. I went to Japan once when I was 13 for the summer. I love Hawaii. I have been to New York. My dream vacation would be to go all over Europe... especially Austria and Italy.
