Caturday Art - Resting, and more Christmas Cards.

I am taking part in the Caturday Art this week and you can see more by visiting Athena the Cat Goddess.



My art this week is using my favourite editor, Lunapic.
I also had a surprise when I went to give Dreamscope another try. I usually get tired of waiting for the pictures to render, but when I went back a few days ago I found 2 pictures I had given up on several weeks ago.
They are also taken from the same photo that I used for the Lunapic version.

This was using the Autumn effect.

This one used the Forest effect. I think the boys blend too much with the background in this version.

I had thought that once I left the site the pictures would be discarded, but apparently not.

I have also received some more snail mail Christmas cards over the last 2 days which I have posted below and will also add to my Christmas Day post.
Thank you to everyone who sent us cards. All of our ecards are on the ecard page below our header. Thank you for all of those too.

The Autumn effect is purrfection! Dreamscope is super slow, but worth the wait!

We love your autumn effect for two angel autumn cats. That is such a beautiful picture, too, just perfect. Blessings to Eric and dear Flynn from Carol, Peaches and especially Paprika.

We love seeing all of these memories of Eric and Flynn. Happy New Year from our house to yours.

Kari said...

The boys always look marvelous! Wish we beans could say the same for ourselves. Both effects suit them so well with the lovely colors. I remember when I first saw the boys on your blog. It was in a natural photo. The grass was so green and the boys beautiful furs looked impossibly ginger. I thought no kitties were so vividly coloured, but Eric and Flynnie were! Happy memories.

meowmeowmans said...

Jackie, we love that photo of the boys, and that Autumn effect is simply beautiful! Happy New Year to you and Ivor. Hugs!

Three Chatty Cats said...

We love both of the pictures, miss Jackie and the second one blends just purrfect. We like that! Don't forget to make the pictures smaller (in bites) when you use Dreamscope, they are ready before you know it :D Pawkisses for a wonderful healthy New Year to all of you. Make it a good one :) <3

Thank you for your new year's wishes left on my blog. I hope that this year brings you true health and happiness. I can understand why you wanted to get away this Christmas, but I believe 2018 will be a contented and happy time for you.

(And I do like the forest-effect of the photograph, especially the first one; it makes it look like the boys are standing on a very shallow sheet of water, reflecting the trees about them.)

Seville at Nerissa's Life said...

That picture of the two of you is so beautiful. Such fond memories... PURRS.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! purrs

LP said...
