Who is Escape Kitty?

Let me introduce myself. I am Escape Kitty.

I got my start on Sept 1, 2010 as I was out playing in the yard enjoying the birds and squirrels. Really just minding my own business. Happy. Content. Daydreaming.

When, but in an instant, I caught a movement in the corner of my eye. Since cats are noted for their superior vision, I had to do a double take because I thought my eyesight had failed me. I shut my kitty eyes for a moment and reopened them to disbelief.

A coyote? In MY yard? Could it be? And he's drooling my way? Move move move! Find my mom . Run to safety.

Big mistake! Really big mistake. Now she never lets me outside. Done - left to dream. ahhhhh but Kitty dreams really do come true.

So come follow me! I am off to Escape.

Escape Kitty's How does Hope Start?

Escape Kitty - How does hope start?  

How does hope start?  This is Escape Kitty trying to shake the cold dark winter and move into the warmth of the spring sunshine.  She's trying to find even the smallest patch of sunshine in the house to  nap.  You should see it - the patch of sunshine is big enough to fit her head.  It's quite a sight - but it's a hopeful sight and a great start.  Hope usually starts with a tiny bit of light. 

 What is your tiny bit of light?  
 Make your tiny bit of light grow by believing.

This was created using the Flying Unicorn kit for April -  April 2014 Your Passion Your Art kit
The kit spotlights 7Dots Cold Country Collection.  Cold Country yes....bitter cold, NO!  Bring on the pretty 7Dots and chase away the snow and drab from winter.

Here is  a piece from Escape Kitty.  Tis the season when she really wants to get outside. The darkness and cold of winter is leaving and the sun is staring to shine and warm up.  As you can see, Kitty is in transition, looking toward the sunshine and just waiting for the season to turn.

She'll spring into action then - guarding the door, waiting for an opportunity to sneak out and chase some butterflies or birds.

These are cute diecuts from 7Dots mixed with wood pieces from American Crafts -Studio Calico.
The kit also has a wonderful mask with leafy branches by Joggles.  I used for the background.

Escape Kitty's Ski Adventure - Flying Unicorns Kitty of the Month March

 Escape Kitty Welcomes you to the March Revel of the Kit of The Month.  As the snow continues to fall in our part of the world, Kitty decided to embrace it and pull the snow skis out.  She's got a darling little cap that fits her ears puuurfectly. Kitty is a tad bit late for the Olympics, missing the trials by just one catnap too long.

We are so excited to bring you our March 2014 Kit of the Month

The doily is just a generic wooden doily from a craft store.  I thought it was pretty so it came home with me.   
We punched a circle from the Authentique Classique Elegance Collection,  and wanted a little more decoration so we marked off a large circle with a pencil.  Then used the Prima Stencil and molding paste a little at a time till we moved around the space we marked.  Once dry, we rubbed some ink over the stenciling. 

Now I say "we" because Kitty is no help when it comes to inks and molding paste and delicate things.   Her furry paws simply don't know deliCATe. 

The snowflakes are from the Martha Stewart punches with ink added to the tips.

Get your kitty of the month here...March 2014 Kit of the Month.  This kitty goes quickly .  There are no monthly obligations.
