It's April fools day.. Do you do any April fooling??.. I remember a radio station I use to listen to did a joke that really backfired. They played on their station at different times -could be during a song, them talking or a commercial.. of a cat meowing.. this went on for a long time. Guess people were pulling over and trying to find the cat in their car.. Finally they fessed up what they were doing that they were playing the cat meowing that there is no cat in your car.... Well later in the day a lady called crying saying her boss fired her because she was late to work (for a very very important meeting) after trying to find the cat and waiting for a garage to open and have them look for the cat which now turns out was a April fools joke to the listeners.. she was crying and the DJ was feeling so bad he caused this.. He asked to speak to her boss.. He got on the phone and said she was an excellent employee but the meeting was so important and he was very upset she was so late.. They went back and forth back and forth..finally the boss said April Fools... he got the DJ back.. I laughed so hard it was really funny.
Well no April Fools here.. It's Saturday and Catch the bug has a new challenge.. A favorite.. ANYTHING GOES!! woo hoo...
I saw these cute little dogs in the Bugaboo Store the female dog is Funny Pup 2 and male dog is Funny pup.. knew I had to use them. I die cut them out of stitched My Favorite Things square and then used the MFT scallop stitch die. I layered the image behind on black. I colored the dogs with copics and tied a little lace strip to the frame. The sentiment is Simple thoughts. I cut it apart and inked around the edges. I added bling to her collar and flower and a couple by the sentiment. These little guys are so cute. We have two little fur babies.. well really hair babies.. Shih Tzu mix who is 11 lbs. and Shih Tzu / Llasa Apso who is 17 lbs. They are a joy to us and do make our lives whole. Both are rescues.
