Happy WOYWW to you dear friends! We are still in the midst of our heatwave. It’s 105 degrees as I write this and we’ve been under a Heat Advisory for several days. As I melt I am dreaming of the cooler days of Fall…
What Did I Create This Week?
Autumn was on my mind as I designed today’s card.
It’s present in the colors – the harvest-inspired greens, yellows and oranges that rarely made it out of my Crayola box as a child, and rarely make it out of my scrap box as an adult.
It’s present in the theme – one of thanks for the special people in our lives that we truly appreciate, but don’t always share how much they mean to us as often or as profusely as we should.
Why not join me this week in sending off a special note of gratitude to someone who deserves it and could really use a word of encouragement from us right now?
What Are The Crafty Cats Up To?
I believe the heat is making us all a little edgy as of late.
For instance, my precious Magellan has been particularly precocious this week.
Thanks to him, I spent my Saturday morning crawling around the floor, trying to singlehandedly stretch into tight corners and figure out how to install new hardware as El Destructo and his Jaws of Steel chomped through the cord of my second keyboard and rendered it DOA!
Now – to my chagrin – he is doing his best to chomp his way through keyboard 3!
If you’d like to read more about his antics – and view the photographic evidence for yourself – His Naughtiness awaits you at my Wordless Wednesday Party.
While you’re there, check out the very funny Wild Cat video that’s sure to make you me smile!
