Cats and Colours

Happy Weekend and thank you for sharing your time with me by visiting Jumbled Crafts. A special welcome to new visitors and followers.


At Moo Mania and More the theme this time is Cats. You can add any project at all with cats and use any medium to make your project.

When I first got a cat in my teens I loved him so much I used to daydream when I was at school and draw cats on every space in my exercise books. Somewhere deep down I remember what they looked like and so I drew one for MMM. Must see what I could do better now I am grown up :)

At Tag Tuesday it was my turn to choose the theme this time and it is My Favourite Colour Combination-well your favourite colour combination really.

A digital tag from me today

This is me in my school uniform-minus the green beret. I was always proud to wear it and the navy and green went so well together. We didn't have coloured photographs in those days and not many people had cameras.


My new header is made from a photograph Vic took the other day of our new 'Baby' . We bought a very small wisteria plant and hoped it would survive as we just love the flowers when we see them growing up cottage walls and in parks. Last year it did its best to shoot up the side of an archway but then died back. This year it shot up over the archway and produced this amazing flower.




Can't wait to see what happens next

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

Your cat is so cute and funny - I feed my daughter's cats when they are away and so every time they see me , they think it's dinnertime! I love your digital projects too.

I adore both tags. They are fantastic. I especially like the one of you in uniform. We didn't have uniforms where I grew up and most public schools here still do not. Some of the private ones do, though. You certainly looked lovely in yours.

Your wisteria is fabulous. I wish I could grow it, but I think our climate is too hot for it here.

I'm on tenterhooks here... so what did you get 1st prize for, Chrissie? No need to hide your light under a bushel! Your cat is great, not realistic but then if you look at some of the popular stamps around this drawing is in good company among the whimsical creatures (think Tim Holtz etc...)! xx

Very elegant in your uniform, Chrissie - I'm sad there's no green beret to see! We used to have blue and green fabric for our summer dresses for school uniform, and I always far preferred it to the boring navy of the winter version. Love your smiley cat and the wisteria is looking wonderful. Lovely to have it as your blog background too.

Chrissie I love the cat, he is smiling, dinner must be on it's way.
A fantastic tag as well, you are right about folk not owning cameras when we were young, how times change. You look very smart in your uniform, we wore navy blue beret in the winter, and a straw boater type thing, and I do mean thing, I hated it, in the summer.
The wisteria blooms look lovely and so does your new header.

Your cat is a lot of fun Chrissie. And I like the tag too. I think you had a great color combination for a uniform. They really do work well together and the green livens up the blue. :) Happy weekend. Hugs-Erika

First of all I love the new header and the fact that is one of your own plants! I love the tag and thinking how lucky you were to have such nice uniform colours - mine was orange and brown! Love that smiley cat too! Hope you are having a lovely weekend! Chrisx

I love your happy cat and tag, my uniform was claret and blue - not my favourite colour combo.

Your tag is wonderful with such a nice photo of you and a pretty color combo!

Sue said...

Your wisteria is beautiful Chrissie and I love how you've used it for your header. Your cat is fab, so happy, and the colour combi of you in your uniform is so nice, much better than my grey and more grey lol. Have a fun week, Sue xx
