This week the challenge was to use lots of green, well that was done! I used a scrap of DCWV glitter card stock as the background. Seemed a little like sparkling grass to me, so I pulled out my Tilda stretched out enjoying a day in the grass. I colored her with Copics and highlighted with white gel pen, I thought the grass needed some flowers so I used the smallest primas I have. They are a bit large for her, but it is art. Then I just had to use my favorite ribbon, I just love the saying "All things grow with Love" and on this green checked ribbon it was perfect for this ATC. Hope you like it!
Now to our Miracle. I would like to you to meet GATO (Spanish for Cat). Hubby brought Gato home yesterday and she is the newest member of our home. Now why is she a miracle? Well she survived a day in the engine and frame of our delivery van. Hubby and his brother (who works with us) heard him early in the day. After numerous attempt to retrieve her from the engine, and then her running into the frame they could not get her. They left the van hoping she would climb out on her own. After not hearing her later in the day deliveries were made all around the area, my BIL took the truck home for night. Well guess what was under the battery? It got loose and after they captured her with taunting of food, they saved her. She is tiny, and very dirty and very very thirsty. Can you imagine how hot it was riding around in the engine? It was in the 90's here!! Poor little thing. Hubby wanted her really bad, he has been pressuring me for a cat for awhile. We have always had multiple cats, our last died a couple years ago and was over 18 years old. I have really enjoyed the no cat box, no climbing of no cats. But I do love cats. And Gato is adorable and very sweet. When you hold her, the motor turns on and you can hear her purring across the room. We don't know how old she is, I am guessing 4 or 5 weeks old. But she has a home here now. Oh and I know the name GATO isn't the sweetest and cutest... I voted for Gracie as it was God's Grace she lived through her travels. But Hubby has always wanted a Calico cat named Gato... so oh well Gato it is.
Hope you have a great Thursday and the weekend is almost here again!
