Cutie Patootie causes "Kitty Outburst"

This picture completely melts my heart. I was cleaning out emails when I came across this picture and it made me smile. Then I had what Mike (husband) refers to as the "Kitty Outburst". Let me explain "Kitty Outburst". I'll be surfing the web, blogs, checking emails, whatever. I'll come across an adorable picture of an animal or a video or story that speaks to my animal loving soul. I'll turn around in my chair and start looking for a kitty to love on. I'm not sure what I do that clues him in to the fact that I am about to make one of our furry children a victim of love , but he knows. When this happens, Mike proclaims "Uh Oh, Mom's having a Kitty Outburst". :-) So now you know the definition of another one of our funny sayings/catchphrase/terms of endearments. Hmmm...maybe I'll create a section that has definitions of our silly little sayings.

Okay, back to this precious picture. Poor baby...I think he broke his leg and they used a toilet paper roll to brace it. The thought of the toilet paper roll made me chuckle. I just thought it would make your day to see this sweet angel face, so I am sharing it with you. Do you have funny sayings, catchphrase or terms of endearments? Leave a comment and share. Don't have any? Check out this site. Terms Of Endearments

Have a beautiful day and hug your furry babies!

Frosty & Friend

I just couldn't let Christmas go by without making a Frosty The Snowman card! I saw a few variations online, but they were missing a "mouth made of coal", so I had to add little pieces of coal and rosy cheeks. I adore the Stampin Up exclusive Sizzlits Birds & Blooms set and had to give Frosty a feathered friend. This card available in the "Available Cards" area of the blog.

We had snow last week!!! Shocking!! And even more shocking was the fact that is was still on the ground, covering roofs and cars when I headed to work the next morning. I felt like a little giddy school girl. We had enough to make tiny little snowmen, but not enough for a human size snowman. For those of you have tons of snow this time of year, did you make a snowman?? If so, please share pics.

Have a beautiful day!

Award & Blogs I love!

So way back in September, this very talented lady, Julie, awarded me in this post. AWARD! My blog was only a few months old, therefore receiving an award was a real suprise!! So what did I go and do? Fall off the Face of Bloggin world. Duh! Bad blogger! It has been so crazy with Hurricane Ike's aftermath and all my responsibilities of LIFE I have neglected to pass on this award. Better late than never, right?! :-)

Thanks JULIE! I so admire your style! It's Bold, Creative and 100% Inspiration!!

I want to share with you some of the "Blogs I Love" for various reasons.

The talented lady that made my visions come true. My Animal Scraps idea came to me the Spring of 2007. I envisioned how I wanted my blog to look, but I did not have the to create it. I finally contacted her Summer 2008 and all my visions came to fruition. It was like she was inside my head. Thanks again Veronica!

She has videos with tutorials on how to create your own beautiful little pieces of art. I love the unique spin she puts on her designs.

I’m crazy about color and this lady uses lots of it! Especially on scrapbook page layouts, which inspire me to work on some layouts instead of cards all the time. Check out her work!

For those cupcake lovers, prepare to be AMAZED! This lady is undoubtedly THE CUPCAKE QUEEN! Stunning designs adorn her breathtaking masterpieces. I adore her creations and I know you will too.

Miss Doxie
This chick is funny beyond belief! Be warned! Don’t read her posts while at work. You will NOT be able to contain a burst of laughter. She’s a HOOT!

Dog Lover
Lots of pictures, articles and tips for Animal Lovers. Mostly dog lovers, but who doesn’t melt at the site of a puppy?

Y’all have wonderful blogs and please accept this awards and here are the rules as I understand them:

1) The winner can put the logo on their blog

2) Link the person you received your award from

3) Nominate at least 6 other blogs

4) Put links of those blogs on yours

5) Leave a message on the blogs of the blogs you’ve nominated

I have some pictures and stories to share from the Hurricane Ike recovery, but that will have to wait till I can find the pics again. The computer fried days after our power came back on from Ike, so the uploaded pics were lost. I think they are still on the camera.

Have a wonderful day!
