Action Wobble - Got Catnip?

Hello my friends!  Happy Monday!  I have an Action Wobble inspiration post for you today.  I'm using a stamp set and matching die from Stampendous called 'Cling Pop Up Kitties'.  No coloring on this card at all....it was made just using die cuts and punches. The papers I used are from an older BasicGrey paper pad called 'Max and Whiskers'.  The sentiments are from a stamp set called 'Cat Sayings' also from Stampendous.

Here is a close up of the actual action wobble behind the kitty's head.

Here is my attempt to show you the action wobble in action.....to me the googly eyes make the kitty look drunk - or maybe just a bit frightened!!!!

If you don't have any Action Wobbles hop on over and SHOP HERE

The Action Wobble challenge blog hosts a new challenge every Wednesday.
You can check it out here Action Wobble Challenge

June WIP Update for Cross Stitch Projects

Hello my friends....I'm trying something new.  Instead of posting pictures through out the month of my cross stitch projects I thought I would try doing one post showing all updates at once since I rotate between projects each week.

First up...Heaven and Earth Designs 'Blue Dragon'. 

This is what the completed pattern looks like
This is where I was last time

This is where I am now

 The second update is on Save the Stitches (a totally FREE design) by Liz Almond
This is what the finished block of 131+ patterns will look like

This is where I was last time

This is where I am now
3rd up is the Twisted Band Sampler by Northern Expressions
This is the completed pattern

This is where I was last time

This is where I am now
This last one is a new start so there are no last time pictures.  This project is called 'Dressmakers Daughter' and is from Mirabilia.  For some reason I just really love this pattern.
This is what the finished project will look like

This is how far I got in one week of stitching. 

I know this is a long post with a lot of pictures but I think it will be easier for me to update once a month than after every project.

Hope you enjoy...
