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 remembers her pal Chena


Escape Kitty is remembering her pal Chena a year after her journey to the Rainbow Bridge. This is a reprise of the post from Oct 31, 2013.  Here is the original post


Chena's Journey to the Rainbow Bridge

It's been a while since Escape Kitty and Chena had a little adventure.  Kitty had been enjoying the warmth of summer and the lazy days that summer brings when Chena, her best friend, appeared at Kitty's door.

"Oh  Miss Kitty, are you there?  I need you to come on a little journey with me."

Well Kitty is always up for some traveling, especially with Chena.  They have had many a grand trip and adventure.  But Chena would not tell Kitty where they were going, just to trust that she needed her dear friend Kitty to accompany her.

This time Chena had a little surprise for Kitty, full well knowing Kitty's legs get tired faster than Chena's AND that Kitty likes to take cat naps quite often. Chena came prepared with a sack for Kitty to ride on and enjoy the journey, nap a little, feel the wind in her whiskers.

Finally Chena arrived at her destination.   Kitty awoke to find a strange and beautiful sight - a Rainbow Bridge,  hills and lush grass , pets playing , jumping and running about in the warm sunshine.
Kitty hopped off her perch on the sack and marveled at the sight.  Chena gave Kitty a smile and a wonderful poodle hug.  She thanked Kitty for all the crazy adventures but it was now time for her to cross the bridge alone and join the other pets.

Chena promised that when it's Kitty's time to cross the bridge, she will be waiting for her as best friends do.

And off Chena went,  tail wagging, fluffy poodle ears a'flopping,  silly tongue hanging out to join old friends she had missed for some time.  Oh there's Chilly and Tiffany...

Till we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge.




"Rainbow Bridge (Death of a Pet)"

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth.
It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of all its beautiful colors.
Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows,
hills and valleys with lush green grass.
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place.
There is always food and water and warm spring weather.
The old and frail animals are young again.
Those who were sick, hurt or in pain are made whole again.
There is only one thing missing,
they are not with their special person who loved them so much on earth.
So each day they run and play until the day comes
when one suddenly stops playing and looks up!
The nose twitches! The ears are up!
The eyes are staring and this one runs from the group!
You have been seen and when you and your special friend meet,
you take him in your arms and hug him.
He licks and kisses your face again and again -
and you look once more into the eyes of your best friend and trusting
pet.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together never again to be apart.

Escape Kitty and the Dandelions from Flying Unicorns




Dandelions are in style!  Escape Kitty proves it. 
This is the Sept Kit of the Month for the Flying Unicorns and it is fabulous - of course. 
Our main kit  can be obtained here.  Though it dos sell out super fast. 

This month, Kitty is showing off the wonderful Studio75 collection featured in the kit as well as some cool embellishments for accent pieces. 

At any rate, Escape Kitty loves to play in the grass, sit in the grass, nap in the grass.  In this photo, she's showing us her version of "taking time to smell the Flowers".  

In order to accentuate the dandelions, I used the Prima stone wall stencil  575939.    I drew a circle in pencil first , then applied the Finnabair Art Basics Modeling paste to the stencil. 


I also stamped  a little to create some texture in the background. 

Look at the sweet wood embellies.  All I did was ink the edges.  No need for fancy.  Kitty is a plain Kitty anyways so fancy doesn't always work for her. 

Below is the Prima metal die that has been misted with Prima Color Blooms in Sorbet. 








On behalf of Kitty and myself, thanks.

Escape Kitty making More Cards






Escape Kitty is in a card making mood.  And Flying Unicorns Aug kit was just puuurfect for card making.   She hasn't been traveling or on adventures in a while so this is her little way of making it out into the world - even though it's just on a card.  



She has a few people she needs to send thank you notes to - and she loves to send thank you cards when someone buys from her ETSY shoppe.  

Nothin fancy on her cards but she did include some cut butterflies and dotted the centers with a pearl. 



Think about preordering for the next kit from the Flying Unicorns

LaLa Land Cherry Blossom Dies
