MMSA cats postcard swap

Got my cat cards back. Well, two of them. I sent in 3 and so far two have arrived. Possibly a malcontent sorting machine at the USPS did away with one of them. Wouldn't be the first time.
The bottom three are the ones I sent out, included here because I can't remember if I blogged about them already and am too lazy to go look. Seems like I did cause I think I remember talking about Mabel.
This cool shadowed cat is from Ellen in VA. I never thought to do this before
but I really like the effect and may have to borrow the idea!
Love the colorful cat against the subtle patterned background.
Feels like a spring garden in cat shape.

This hand drawn Siamese is from Joanne in MN.
I love how it perfectly captures the wonky gaze of a cross-eyed Siamese!
She used chalk pastels for the base, then added colored pencils and pen.
I think it's amazing. I have very little drawing skill
so am always pleased to receive hand drawn work.


  1. Love the first one (well love them all) but love that effect with the shadow!

  2. They are all great! But since I was the lucky recipient of the cat and the chicken, that one is my favorite! :)

  3. I agree - that shadowed cat is one cool cat! I haven't seen that type of shadow effect before and I think it's great....I'll borrow too! :)

  4. darn - you only got two? I also mailed one of Gina's to you.
    perhaps it will appear when we least expect it.
