Hopping Saturday

Happy Saturday everyone! I am using the same photo for The Lazy Pit Bull’s #52 Snapshots, theme “bokeh”  and Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop.

bokeh

This is Sammy’s photo on the first day of Hanukkah last year. A much clearer version is in the Holiday issue of Catster on page 28. I will admit that I had to look up the word bokeh and I know I didn’t get it quite right, but it is the best I could do with my limited editing skills. Bokeh is a blurred photo where one thing is clear and I couldn’t figure out how to make one part clear. I used Lunapic, blur effect.

The real art is my new header. Thank you to my friend Jamie who is an excellent graphic designer. Here is the link to his DiverseDesigning

I am hoping to put up our tree today so for Athena’s Caturday Art Hop, I went to photofunia and put Lucy on some Christmas balls. I wish I could actually buy some like this.

And for The Lazy Pit Bull’s #52 Snapshots of Life, the theme this week is “thankful”. I am thankful that I had so many years with Lucy and with KaChoo (below). Yesterday was 5 years since my KaChoo went to the Bridge. I am thankful for every kitty I am lucky enough to have share my life.

My favorite animal is the cat, but I think you all knew that. Here is Phoebe hunting Prancie ( I used ribbet to add an eyeball frame). eyeball

Kangaroo Hopping

Saturdays are for hopping and nothing hops better than a kangaroo. I was thrilled to get a package in the mail from Australia. Most of you probably know Fozziemum , but if you don’t then please check out her link. She lives in the Outback with lots of pets and is an incredible photographer. She takes amazing photos of nature and my favorites are of the kangaroos. Words can’t express how happy getting these 12 cards in the mail have made me. I doubt I am going to send any of them, I am definitely framing some of them, if not all.

These are my entry for The Lazy Pit Bull’s #52 Snapshots of Life, the theme this week is “framed” and these deserve to be framed. Thank you Fozziemum.
