Another CGC

Blogger and Blog Press seem to e giving me fits today. See what happens when my mojo works at the same time! I had this posted at 4am and poof my picture disappeared...so, am trying again with hopes you can see it!

Yep, a challenge for the Calendar Girls!
Here's what Kelly (Miss February) had to say about her challenge this month:
"Hee hee! It’s February, a month that symbolizes
LOVE. When thinking of a theme for this month’s
Challenge, I knew I wanted us to get happy with
the furry ones! My challenge for you this month is: Show some
LOVE to our furry animals! I love them great and small,
Short and tall – furry and fluffy! I am also
sure at one point we have all had a special pet that we have loved,
or maybe still do have a pet (or a bunch!) So let’s show them
some love! I challenge you to show us fur, your fluff, your waggin’ tails! The possibilities are endless – from doggies to cats, mice to turtles – in one case, a spider! (lil dj!!) LOL! Let’s bring some creativity to making a card (etc) with any image showing us a pet (including if you don’t actually own one!)
** For an extra part of the challenge, since it is February, please try to include the color RED on your card somewhere (coloring of the image, your DSP, cardstock, embellies – just a touch (or a lot!) of red."

Okay, well, I think I did pretty well with the challenge part.  And, you know I love little bonus features, but I just didn't get the hint of red into my card....does all that orange count?

For those of you that don't know me, we have two goldfish.  NOT furry at all!
BUT, my SIL also lives in the house and she has a dang cat....lol...  While the cat leaves the fish alone, she does drink the water from the tank....EEEEEWWWWW
deets:  cs and dp from my stash, immie and sentiment from Deedee's Digis (Deedee can now be found here), bling from Can You Digi It?, and the cat is actually a label pin that I have had forever and finally found a place for it!  {It now has a new home, because I sent it to a fellow crafter that I thought would appreciate it!}
Check out the rest of the Calendar Girls - their links are on my side bar!  They love luv too!
Thanks for stopping by!

This is great April! I love your fish tank and the cat charm! :)


Hi April, What a fab FUN card - I really love it! Great design! What a funny cat drinking from the fishtank! Where I grew up on a farm, we had to always leave the lid closed on the toilet because one of our cats took a liking to drinking the water. He also loved to eat wool and once ate the cuff of my newly knitted mittens by my Mum - hadn't even had a chance to wear them! Some cats have very ODD habits! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your lovely comments - I really appreciate them today after spending the morning at hospital :-) {{hugs}} Jocelyn

Super creative, April! The cat pin is just icing on the cake. Good thing it is the 'good' SIL's cat. I would hate to see what would happen if it wasn't! You really did this challenge well!!!
