Spark and Awww With Marv and Kozmo

This week's Spark

McGuffy’s who was hosting the Sparks is on hiatus.  She says “I truly do believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. There is hope. Together, we can light up the entire world!

Caturday Art with Kozmo

 Hi Guys! We have had really cold weather the last 2 days. It has even tried to snow! Kozmo was outside watching Alex from under the deck steps and Alex got some great shots of him. The yard is pretty much cleaned up so we took it easy today and made some special Kozmo art.

Here is the picture of Kozmo. We were intrigued with all the vanishing point lines of the old deck boards and when we got the photo into Photoshop, we thought we would play with those.

This time we remembered what we did! First we cut Kozmo out of the background in a copy. We added a layer on top of the background layer and made it a Radial Gradient layer, and used a Starburst (brush) eraser to cut a starburst out of the gradient layer with the focus of the starburst on Kozmo's nose. We added the Ink Outline filter to the background picture layer. We then added the cutout of Kozmo on top. And finally, we added a frame. 

But that's not all!

For the above, we followed the same steps, except we did not have a filter on the background And for the Starburst cutout, we used the center of the photo. We went to  PhotoMania and chose the RetroComic effect (this added the red to the starburst effect). We brought it back into Photoshop and added the black frame. We could NOT make up our mind as to which one we liked the best, so we would like to hear which one YOU like the best.

 We are pawticipating in Athea and Marie's Caturday Art! We LOVE those guys! Not only is Athena a deop dead gorgeous tabby, and Marie is an exceptional artist! We LOVE their work.  Please click on their button to be taken to their blog and see this weeks exquisite art!

Thankful Thursday and a Poem

First the Poetry!

This week we are doing Sammy (and Teddy)'s Poetry! When we first looked at this picture, it looks like a slightly older version of our kitchen.

The Kitchen 

 

My kitchen is old and looks on the blink
I ought to just chuck the whole thing in the sink,
The oven is older and needs to be lit
There is nor fridge as it would not fit!
The sink is full of dishes galore
The black and white tiles make up the floor.
But in this disaster I do my best
To make super goodies that have that zest.
So sit yourself down and I'm make a feast
With mashed and peas and the best roast beast!

 The Thankfuls!

As you know Mom and Alex were gone all day Tuesday. They drove halfway to Vancouver to get Mom a new car. It was a long day and when Mom got home, she went out again last night. Today we have been holding her down on the sofa so that she can catch up with all those who has visited and commented on our posts and the people who we go and visit too!

We are thankful for our new chariot!

It is smaller, but it is 2 years newer and has 110,000 kms (68350 miles)  less on it. It does not have heated seats, but it does have a block heater (which helps the car in our cold winters). Mom got a really good deal because it has a manual transmission (apparently people don't want to shift gears anymore). Mom says she has to figure out how to get all our diity bags and cat carriers in there too! We are looking forward to watching her do that!
We are thankful for all of our furrends and their help as we went through all of this. We are thankful for our blogging furrends who come and visit, we are thankful for the hops that we pawticipate in-the people who sponsor them are wonderful and they they never complain! We are also for the Cat blogosphere and how they collect all the information about the hops, special days and other pet events. We are especially thankful to Ann at Zoolatry who works hard at creating all the fabulous artwork for badges, headers, etc that we see throughout the blogosphere. 

❤❤❤ Thank you furrends, we love and appreciate you! ❤❤❤

We are pawticipating in Thankful Thursday at Brian's Home. Thanks for hosting this awesome blog hop! We love visiting all those who participate and reading their thankfuls too!

Weekly Pet Horoscope April 6 - 12, 2021

 


If you don't know what sign your pet is, click this link to the Farmer's Almanac's Pet Zodiac Traits page, This page explains the different traits for pets born under each zodiac sign. If you already know when your pet was born, it is fun to see if your pet’s sign seems true. If you would like a Birthday Horoscope for your pet, send us an email and we will try to get it done for you!

 Here are the horoscopes we have written for you for April 6 - 12, 2021, with your Purrsonal lucky day.

Aries (Mar. 21- Apr. 20)   Declare your wishes loudly, you will get your way. Midweek, you move in different directions and you meet something/one new on Thursday (a cute flower, perhaps). Friday you bask in a sun puddle and you look marvellous. The weekend is exceptional, try to stay grounded on Saturday. Sunday, go wild. Monday is calmer. Your purrsonal lucky day is Sunday! There is definitely a silver lining!
Taurus (Apr. 21- May 21)  Today, live in the moment, even more than you do! Your emotions are up and down. Wednesday and Thursday are more even-keeled, but there is an undercurrent of tension. You don't really feel like yourself until Friday or Saturday. The weekend holds good things for you. And this continues into early next week. Your purrsonal lucky day is Saturday! You catch the red dot!   
Gemini (May 22-June 21)  You can't sit still today, unless your human(s) bribe you with a treat. Your energy is high, get out there and have fun! This carries on through Thursday. You get along with people you hardly know. Friday, relations with others are less smooth, but a stellar conversation Sunday sets you up for a great time next week. Your purrsonal lucky day is Monday! You are treated like the star you are.Your purrsonal lucky day is Sunday! Something magical can happen!
Cancer (June 22-July 22)  If your human(s) seems weary, it's because this week they are busy. Walking on the wild side will add to their distress. Midweek you are torn about some issues. And through the weekend all you want to do is hangout at home. Monday you and your human(s) are heading back to normal.  Your purrsonal lucky day is Wednesday. Treats, treats and more treats.
Leo (July 23-Aug 22) Today is great for love. You are overflowing! Midweek you are full of confidence. Friday your ego is front and center. You try to deflect attention on the weekend, but all eyes are on you. Don't let a personality clash ruin your day. Be optimistic and forgiving. Monday things settle down. Your purrsonal lucky day is Thursday! Wand toys are rediscovered!
Virgo (Aug. 23 -Sept. 23)  Humans can interpret your howls/yeowls however they want. If your peeps don’t have a clue, then so be it. Midweek you charge into the world with fresh confidence. Through Friday you love everyone and they love you. You try and deflect attention on the weekend, but all eyes are watching. Don’t let others get you down, be optimistic and forgiving. Your purrsonal lucky day is Wednesday. Purrhaps something extra special for you.
Libra (Sept. 24 -Oct. 23)  You and your brain are full of ideas -- but some of them are running up against each other! You need to take time out to let them fight it out by taking a nap. In the middle of the week a good hard play with your human(s) or furblings sorts things out. In the days leading up to Sunday, your mind will go to thoughts of the past. Sunday everything seems magical. By Monday, your mind's on the future. Your purrsonal lucky day is Sunday. Something that is soft and cuddly will be at your disposal.      
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)   It seems like you have more going on than you can handle. You want to go hide, but your human(s) needs you! Midweek you can be persuaded to do things you would not normally do. Friday life returns to a sense of order and self-control. That's all good, but don't forget to party Saturday night. Your purrsonal lucky day is today, Tuesday. Maybe special treats along with the cuddles!
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 -Dec. 21) Being destructive isn't the only way to let your human(s) know you need more play time. Get creative. By midweek you are busy and by the weekend you are creative too! You dream up all kinds of fun on the weekend. On Sunday, someone announces a resolution so terrific, you add it to your list. You are super alert o Monday and you know what people are thinking. Your purrsonal lucky day is Sunday! Something magical can happen! 
Capricorn (Dec 22.- Jan. 20)  Some things take some getting used to. This is more than a new leash or collar. Even though it's a big change, your life will be back to feeling like a comfy basket in no time. During the week you still feel topsy turvy, but stay the course. By Friday you'll be reaping the rewards of choosing the right path. People will be complimenting you this weekend. Monday sees you considering a change in style. A different approach to the same game. This is wise. Your purrsonal lucky day is Friday. You get extra attention. 
Aquarius (Jan. 21 -Feb. 19)  Having a routine is not easy, but neither is not having one. You'll find out the hard way how much a creature of habit you really are. Midweek you have fun with your family. Friday is a big day for working and on Saturday you hang around the house. But Sunday will be the best day you've had in ages! Monday, you are part of a happy loop of good feeling. Your purrsonal lucky day is Sunday! You find something you lost under the sofa.


Pisces (Feb. 20-Mar. 20) Today you can’t make up your mind. You just can't just seem to stick with one person, place or thing today! Wednesday is a lucky day, right through to Saturday you're happiest sharing your good luck with others. You want to help people. However, the pressure of everyone's problems weighs on you on Monday. Give yourself a break. Your purrsonal lucky day is Thursday. Purrhaps you get a new toy.
