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 Presents Flying Unicorns Dec Kit of the Month -Magic

Flying Unicorns Kit of the Month for December - Magic
Escape Kitty is very happy to present this kit for the Flying Unicorns.  It's called Magic and Kitty feels she is highly qualified to work with something so very magical.

Kitty decided to call in the "big boss of magic" for this piece. Santa and Kitty are old friends from last season when Kitty spent the evening delivering gifts with him.  

This year, it's just a photo op for her at this point and no gift deliveries (yet).  Smile for the camera Kitty.  But you must BELIEVE in the magic of the season. 

Kitty's page was unintentional, as most of Kitty's work.  

We had just received the 13 Arts Ayeeda Ink from the Unicorns store  and a bunch of Shimmerz Sprits mists and we I had to check it out.  I (under the direct supervision of Kitty)  dribbled and spritzed and misted.  Sprayed some water, dabbed and misted some more. I liked the effect so decided to use as the background.

The sweet little bird and white charm are part of the kit. 

The pine punches are from McGill's pine punch. 

Kitty thanks you.   You can grab your bit of Magic at the Fling Unicorns while it's available.

Escape Kitty Getting Ready for Thanksgiving

Hello.  Escape Kitty here today along with Jennifer Snyder preparing for Thanksgiving in the US at the Snyder/Kitty household.

It starts with a little "hats off" to the Pilgrims who settled in the US many many moons ago after a long journey from England on the Mayflower.    The first Thanksgiving feast was held in the Autumn of 1621 between the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag in celebration of the colony's first successful harvest. 

Today, we prepare by dressing Kitty in traditional Pilgrim wear and popping a turkey feathered tail on her - to symbolize the traditional food many of us eat in the US on this holiday.  This day is also one for giving thanks for the bountiful blessings around us.  I remain thankful that Kitty puts up with such shenanigans in letting us dress her up. 

We have also used the Autumn theme here of golds, olives and rich warm colors as well as leaves. 
The gold metal flowers pictured below are the wonderful Metal Adornments  from the Flying Unicorns store.  I simply rubbed them with Rub 'N Buff in golf leaf to give them a nice gold shine.

The butterfly at the top is also Flying Unicorns Metal Adornments -Wings (Butterflies) rubbed with gold Rub N Buff as well.

The leaves and flowers are from Prima Marketing. 

I did a little sewing on the patterned papers.

Those supplies listed with links are available in the Flying Unicorn stare and are linked for your shopping convenience.

Thanks so very much - have a wonderful Sunday

Flying Unicorns Gives Back Blog Hop

If you have landed here from Min's (Melinda Thompson) blog, welcome!  If you would like to start at the beginning, please go here to the Flying Unicorns blog 

Every year in the month of November, Flying Unicorn sponsors "Flying Unicorn Gives Back." This year, we've chosen a nationally recognized charity, Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah.

For each project that is uploaded to our forum gallery, Flying Unicorn donates $1.00 to a maximum of $1,000 and. we've always reached our goal. With your help this year we will again.! Flying Unicorn also donates 5% of all sales during the month of November to the charity. Finally, do not forget to mark your calendars for our Silent Auction November 8th - November 16th .

We have set up the Flying Unicorn page on the Best Friends site where monetary donations can be made as well to help us reach this years goal of $3000.00 in charitable donations.

Best Friends' mission of No More Homeless Pets tries to place dogs and cats who are considered "unadoptable" into good homes, and to reduce the number of unwanted pets through effective spay and neuter programs. Since its inception, the number of dogs and cats being destroyed in shelters has fallen to approximately 5 million a year. There has been much progress,but there is still much more to do. Best Friends made national headlines with
their intensive efforts in rescuing so many animals in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina..
In honor of Best Friends, and the November Kit of the Month -Heart's Twilight - I would like to share with you the extra special project I made using the Kit of the month :

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
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together never again to be apart.

Flying Unicorns Kit of the Month Oct - Farmer's Market and Hayrides

Flying Unicorns  Oct Kit of the Month - Farmer's Market and Hayrides
October also means spooky houses, Halloween frights and scary kitties.   This is Escape Kitty whipping up a little magic to get you ready for Halloween with the Flying Unicorns Kit of the Month, Farmer's Market and Hayrides. .  

So Kitty thinks she is the Pumpkin Princess or something.  She likes going bold for the season I guess.
She did  NOT carve the pumpkin just so you know.  She is not allowed to use kitchen utensils and sharp pumpkin knives as they are way bigger than she is.

I am also thinkin she will not be allowed to help pas out candy this year because of a wee little problem we had last year.  " A piece for you and a piece for me" - doesn't work really work too well.

So how did Bewitching Kitty create this?
The leaves are Prima wooden embellishments 563868 with Viva Inca Gold - Lava Green rubbed into it.  

The  flowers are Prima's E-line flat orange flowers.  Kitty used some black cardstock and just punched the center from the McGill Starburst punch.  Topped with a gem to complete.  The black flower center helps pull a little black through the layout. 

The background was misted using a Prima Stencil 960513 and Dylusions Black Marble mist.  Then Shimmerz Dazzlers in Licorice Stick was dabbed here and there over the misted area.  
And finally, here she is lookin like a lil 'ol punkin. 

Pick your Kitty of the Month up today before it's gone.
