and a star will “lean” them

December 20, 2007


A quick sketch of the Christmas card idea that got away.

Mind you, this whole scene is really no more than a pipe dream, as my two boys Spooky and Joey, would rather box each other than cooperate on anything, let alone help poor little Iggy on a star-topping project. Iggy, however, would more likely be found chasing her tail or hunting down and ruthlessly killing dust bunnies, than ever try to coordinate anything of this nature.

Ah well, one can dream, can’t one?

    You’ve really captured the essence of cats well! I love paunchy Iggy 🙂

    Looks like you’re one of the 5 blogger friends who gets a little something from me! So, what will it be, ATC or cards? Most all of my images I’ve ever posted can be made into notecards. If you have a fave or more, let me know. Of course if you prefer an ATC, would you like it to be landscape, animal, whimsical…??
    Please email me your address. What fun!

    Merry Christmas!

    🙂 I wish our cat can do that too! But he keep giving this stupid excuse that he’s just too old for this! Imagine that, he’s only 9!

    WoW! This Is a wonderful dream! I love the tilt of the tree and the ladder and shadow. The kitties so perfectly rendered! Your drawing skills are great and I hope to see this as a card! Happy Holidays!

  11. The dream is what Christmas is all about, that all cats everywhere can live in peace and harmony.

    I mean, fat chance, but still, it’s a lovely dream. And a wonderful drawing…

    Hee hee, I love this!! I’m here at my parent’s place now with their 3 furry boys. The 2 younger ones would love to attempt something like this, but old cranky Max would certainly growl if anyone tried to use him as a footstool!
