Happy Day

This week’s challenge at Wags ‘n Whiskers is to make something Spooktacular! I made this card using Happy Day and added a button in the shape of a witch’s hat to give it a Halloween feel.


Remember last week’s Wags ‘n Whiskers Blog Hop? Well, one of the hidden candies was found on my blog! I used random.org to select a commenter and the WINNER of the BLOG HOP is…

Did you know? Horse-apples (Osage-orange, Bois D’Arc, or Bodark) are from a tree or large shrub which is not an apple or orange but instead the bumpy round fruit belongs in the mulberry family. The fruit has a pleasant and mild odor, but is inedible for the most part. However, the heavy, close-grained yellow-orange wood is very dense and is prized for tool handles, treenails, fence posts, electrical insulators, and other applications requiring a strong dimensionally stable wood that withstands rot.

Did you know? Unlike some other cats, the cheetah is born with its characteristic spots, as well as a downy underlying fur on their necks extending to mid-back, which gives the cub the appearance of the Honey Badger, to scare away potential aggressors.

Did you know? Captcha is a type of challenge-response test used in computing to ensure that the response is not generated by a computer. It is a contrived acronym for “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart.” It is sometimes described as a reverse Turing test, because it is administered by a machine and targeted to a human.

Happy Day

I have some really great news!! I’m excited to announce that I’ll be a Wag’s N Whiskers Guest Designer for the next two months!

Did you know? There are three main types of ballet: Classical, Neoclassical and Contemporary. It is easy to recognize Classical ballet because it adheres to these rules:
* Everything is turned-out.
* When the feet are not on the floor, they’re pointed.
* When the leg is not bent, it’s stretched completely.
