Boo Kitty and birthday card....

I sure can't seem to find time to get anything done :-( It's not just Boo Kitty being very demanding when he is awake, because he eats, plays and sleeps all day. He is sooooo cute, doing all the cute kitten things!! I taught him how to use the litter box the end of last week and now I am working on weaning him off the bottle, but I don't think he is ready for that. He loves to wrestle on his back, backs up and jumps at things he is "attacking", walks sideways, climbs his scratching post (actually, he likes to climb, period), gives chin kissy bites. He is expanding his exploring in the house and has already found 'hiding places'. It just surprises me that such a tiny little critter can have all the same attributes as grown ones! We are all totally in love and Tyson is still enamored, too. We got them together last weekend and they still wanted to be together -- I believe this will be a lifetime thing:-) Boo Kitty also got to meet Belle, the hamster. The picture will give some perspective to how small Boo is. He is definitely growing -- at 3 weeks he was 12 oz. and 7 inches long. Now, at 4 weeks I believe he is almost 9 inches and has longer legs. We take him to the post office to weigh him and will probably do that this weekend. I think I am going to start his own blog and I will link it when I do:-)

My Darling Hubby had his birthday on Sunday! I hate to say he is 63 because it ages me -- but he is older!! He had the same job for 40 years and they laid him off in February. Luckily, he had one of those rare things called a pension, but he was not ready to retire. He looked for a job for several months and then we decided that it was best that he retire. Of course, what happens to men who retire? They get "sick". September is National Prostate Cancer Month and hubby was diagnosed with it last Friday :-( It was found very early and the prognosis is excellent, but he still has a lot of tough choices to make and the procedures to go through. I went through 7 years of terminal cancer treatments with my dad, so at least this time I won't be waiting for a bad end :-) Any hoo, that is the other reason I have not had much time for crafting, lots of doctor appointments and just
hand-holding. Cancer is always a scary word :-( If you read this, please remember David in your prayers -- I have already had several mini miracles in my life and I want just one more!!

Here are some new pictures of Boo Kitty and the card I made for David's birthday....

I used a 'Gus' digi stamp from Bugaboo Stamps, cut large ovals with my Creative Memories cutting system, hand wrote the "messages" and put 62 at the bottom instead of 63 (Freudian slip), and colored with water color pencils because that is all I have at this time:-)


  1. Love your card! Prayers for your Hubby,, and Boo Kitty is too cute. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my folded star card, if you follow the two links I put in the intro you will get much better instructions than I can give.
    Big Hugs Janet

  2. All your fur babies are precious... isn't it funny when put in a loving home that they can all get along so well. If only people were that good! Anyway thanks for your lovely words about the loss of my Mom. It sounds like you went through this with your Father, I am just so glad that she got to stay in her home and with her family and that she is released from the pain and broken body, although her spirit never broke! I am so sorry for your husband and you! It is such a scary thing, my husband had malignant bladder cancer 6 years ago and is doing very well now... NO CANCER! It is so good that they caught your husbands cancer early! Take care and know what positive thinking and prayer can do!
    Crafty Hugs,
