Introducing [the kitten still in need of a name]

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Just a quick post today. As you know, my beloved cat Phebe passed away several weeks ago. We debated adopting another cat and initially decided against it since we still have two senior cats who might not take kindly to a new addition. But to be honest, I’ve been sad since she died and decided that adopting another cat would help fill the Phebe-sized hole in my heart.

We brought her home on Friday and since then, we’ve been trying out names. Many, many names. Here are a few of the names that we’ve considered in the past two days:

  • Gracie
  • Daisy
  • Mollie
  • Maggie
  • Maisie
  • Sadie
  • Katie
  • Pixie
  • Doodlebug
  • Poppy

Poppy is my husband’s favorite and is probably the name that we’ll end up with, but I’m still open to suggestions. Post in the comments if you have a favorite cat name for us to try out.

Moving on to Today’s Project

I just finished another card featuring an image from the Simple Joys stamp set by Power Poppy. I’ve included a short video to show how I colored the image. I focused on making the ornament appear round, underpainting with BV000 and BV00 before applying the final gold tones. Take a look at the video posted below and you’ll see how the coloring all came together.

  1. Too cute for words – my vote is Poppy or Pixie! Both are super cute names and seem to fit her! The card…..well, that is just adorable AGAIN and I can hardly wait to watch the video! Thanks for sharing…..

  2. Poppy! So cute for a cutie…lovey girl! Another great video
    Found it informative, relaxing with the music, and oh so pretty when done, Thank you!!!@

  3. I like Gracie — with those long white gloves and shoes or boots, she definitely will look graceful for a long while. Congratulations on choosing a very cute kitten!

  4. I probably overthink things but, Kitty has a mask on her face so my first thought was some character who wears a mask. Which led me to Catwoman, since she’s a girl, and then to Eartha Kitt, the original Catwoman. So a good name would be Kitt, which is also short for Kitty. Or maybe Halle for Halle Bailey, another Catwoman actress. Catwoman was neither all good nor all bad, but in the gray area, as are most cats, especially when they are kittens. I recently adopted a new kitten under the same circumstances as you, sadness over losing one and 2 older cats that I was not so sure how they would take a newbie. But it’s been great! The young one has brought excitement into the house again. So enjoy your new kitty whatever you name her!

  5. Your kitty is adorable. Hope she helps heal your heart. I love the name Poppy but I think she looks like an Ella. Thanks for the video it really helps when you show that level of detail. Makes me think that just maybe I can do that someday!!
