Double Trouble Challenge #90 is up on the challenge blog one day early! There is a temporary tweak in dates during August so watch our dates carefully as you play along. This challenge started on Sunday, August 1, and ends on Thursday evening, August 19.
The three "Things" for this challenge are:
Thing 1 (required): Trouble Maker would like you to use at least one animal in celebration of International Cat Day.
Thing 2 (optional): Double Dare is hoping you'll link up with our challenge partner, Two Crafty Critter Crazies #53.
Thing 3 (optional): Twisted Sister loves puns. Include a pun related to the critter in your design.
Several years ago I attended a series of Copic classes. My card today is an image I colored in one of the classes. I never turned it into a card until I saw that International Cat Day is on August 8 and the image would work for this challenge.
I have always loved animals, especially cats and dogs, and have enjoyed them throughout my life. The cat I have now, Sluggo, was semi-feral and made his home in a tree in my back yard. During the hot Arizona summer, my husband, Bob, kept a dish of fresh water on the patio. Over the summer, he grew to trust us enough that we took him to the vet for a check-up and shots and had him tagged with a computer chip. He happily became our full-time house cat. He is still afraid of humans in general and loud noisy things like trash trucks and vacuum cleaners but has turned into a sweet, affectionate, playful companion. (He likes to bunt the top of his head against my chin.)
We hope you'll play along with our challenge by visiting the DTC90 Blog. We offer a randomly selected award. And for an extra chance at the random prize, join in at 2CCC53. Double Trouble is also giving away a one-time generous prize valued at $50, so be sure to take a look.
