Summertime Living

If you're looking for the challenge, scroll down one post or click HERE.

Hello Friends,

Summertime and the living is easy. It sure is for a certain pussy cat on Prince Edward Island, Canada, ever since my husband finished renovations on our new outdoor pet shelter.
Plussette has enjoyed it almost every day and doesn't mind sharing it with some of my other pets. Emma and Malu (guinea pigs) had a couple of turns. My rabbits - Ricky and Jelly Bean were out twice as well. Unfortunately, they cannot be together because they fight and have many battle scars to show for it. Our other cat, Mineau, was out once, but she complained until I brought her back in. She hates being outside.

We have a padlock on the door so if I have to be inside for a while, the pets are secure. I wouldn't leave them in there unless we were home. Many outdoor cats around here (and even small dogs) have fallen victim to coyotes, foxes or eagles. It is nice to sit outside, enjoying the weather and watching my little critters getting to do the same, without risk to their well-being.

Yup. Summertime and the living is easy, thanks to my handy and handsome husband. He is my very most favorite critter.
Thanks for stopping in. I hope you will show us pics of your pets by using the Inlinkz below. Do you have special shelters, furniture or toys that you have made or bought for them? We would love to see those too.

Challenge #5 Sponsored by SheepSki Designs

      Welcome to our Fifth Challenge here at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  If you're new to our challenge, we're a monthly challenge starting on the 1st of each month and ending on the day before the last day of the month. We have a sponsor each month and we choose a random winner on the last day of the month, then announce the winner at the same time as the next challenge goes live.

 So, our winner of the prize offered by Limited Runs for our July challenge is:

#124 HeikesArt
with this fab card

  Congratulations!  Please email us at 2craftycrittercrazies(at)gmail(dot)com  so that we can arrange to get your prize to you.
     In addition, we've chosen DEBI BRILE to be our Guest Designer in September.  Here's her fab card from last month's challenge:


     We're sponsored this month by SheepSki Designs.

     We start a new challenge on the 1st of each month and end the day before the last day of the month.  However, we have one requirement for every project submitted in our challenges -- they MUST feature a creature!  Whether Furry, Feathered, Fantasy, Fairytale, Fins, Scaly, or Insect, there must be a critter featured and not just a teeny, tiny bug hidden in a corner somewhere.  :-D 

     You may enter as many other challenges as you like and you may enter our challenge up to 5 times per month but each entry must be a different project.  We have a sponsor each month and we choose a random winner on the last day of the month, then announce the winner at the same time as the next challenge goes live.

     We will also be inviting Guest Designers to join us each month so if you think you might be interested in being our Guest Designer in October, please add GD after your name or leave us a comment on this post saying you'd like to be a Guest Designer.

     Here's a little inspiration from our team to encourage you and, this month, we are delighted to welcome our Guest Designer, Doris .  Here's her fantastic card.

Teresa, using "Mel's Crow"

     You have until 8 p.m. (Pacific time) on August 30 to enter your project.

     If you'd like to be a future Guest Designer, please tell us in a comment or put GDT next to your name on your entry, or even send us an email (see sidebar for address.)
