The Cat from China...

Oh my, she's updating! It's been a dry week with very little art on offer. Why, may you ask? Well, I did have to put in some extra time at work and I also went to see the new Star Trek movie, so I haven't had a lot of time to art. Also, I have printed out over 100 of my Hawaii photographs and compiled them into an album. These things take time!

Anyhow, I am proud to present the card for the lovely Luvloz's equally delightful mother, Donna.

It is *drumroll*

"The cat from China had a pet mynah"


The latest in my "My Cat likes to Hide in Boxes" series which is loosely based on the picture book by Eve Sutton and illustrated by Lynley Dodd.

Here are the other cats:
The Cat from Quebec took a long, cold trek ...
The Cat from Spain flew an Aeroplane* ...
The Cat from France loved to sing and dance* ...
The Cat from Greece joined the Police ...
The Cat from Berlin played the Violin* ...
The Cat from Chile was playful and silly ...
The Cat from Tasmania took a roll in Titania ...
The Cat from the Phillippines collected old Magazines ...
The Cat from Singapore had a very loud roar ...

... But my cat likes to hide in boxes!



* = theme taken directly from the book, the rest are created by me.

Aside from the Spain and Berlin cards, each of these now resides in the country it is themed after. Nifty or what! Of coures, its hard to find rhymes for some countries (Tasmania was a bit of a stretch...).

If rhyming Tasmania was hard... trying rhyming something with Cyprus! Strewth, deosn't bear thinking about! But gorgeous pictures!
