Twisted Thursday--Birthday Crown/Add Hot Pink

Welcome to another Twisted Thursday!! First I need to apologize to my poor cat Hobbes for making him wear this crown. Even though it is a lovely crown that any birthday princess would be proud to wear, Hobbes was not a happy cat. As a matter of fact, as I was taking this picture, he was already jumping out of my arms. My second apology goes to the other DT members of Shirley's 2 Girls because this is the best picture I have of my birthday crown. 

Since it is the end of our birthday month celebration, all the DT members have made crowns to show you. My lovely crown is being modeled by the oh so happy Hobbes and was made using a crown template that I printed directly onto my lime green paper. I used one of my Party Favor images for the top. I have had so much fun making things with those favors and I know they will continue to be a staple of my "go-to" birthday images. A crown isn't complete without jewels, is it? So I added some small rhinestones on my image panel and then some larger jewels with some diamond shaped brads between them. To finish my crown, I added some hot pink silk ribbon.

A smart person probably would have taken a picture of the crown before trying it on her cat. Today was not one of my smart days. The second I snapped the picture above, the cat took off and hid. And yes he was still wearing the crown which by then was a necklace. I spent a couple of hours trying to find him and every time I did, he took of running in the opposite direction.  I tried everything to get him to come out so I could get my crown back. Not even a can of wet food could get him out of hiding. He did race by me every once in a while and his looks left no doubt about how he felt about me. I was able to get my crown back after he fell asleep. It's a little worse for the wear, but here it is:
We would love for you to play along with us for Twisted Thursday. The twist is to add hot pink to your project and you can make a card or a crown. If you want to make a crown, the template is on the challenge site too! Please drop by and visit the rest of the DT for some examples of non-mangled cards.

You know I LOVE cats, with 5 of my own. They ALL think they are royalty and deserve a crown. Very creative use of this stamp!

Angie Williams said...

So cute! Definitely a classy cat in the hat! :)

Christine Riley said...

Oh my goodness, Gina, this is too cute! We have two little kitten furbabies ourselves, but I seriously doubt they'd let us photograph them :) So cute!
Hugs, Christine :)

Cindy said...

This is great! Love the crown. Cats are not very cooperative sometimes, especially when you are trying to take their picture. LOL.

Suzanne said...

Love it~ I used to live dressing my cat up too!

I've got a whole tub of costumes for my cats...but the pictures are sooooooooo hard to get. They're either rolling on the floor or they have such an "I could kill you for this" look on their face... gotta love 'em!!
