Upsy Daisy Bear

I actually painted this little guy some time ago. He adorns a wooden baby frame and is painted in acrylic. The inspiration for this came from my little, then one year old niece. She would put her head on the ground and her little butt up in the air and giggle like there was not a care in the world.

After scanning in the bear and making him a silhouette I made two backgrounds in yellow and green adding tiny little polka dots to both.

Hopefully this little guy gives you a smile just as the inspiration for it gave one to me.

Springtime Trio Heralds In Spring

Easter Trio Bag

Springtime is not too far around the corner, we've already sprung ahead in most of the country, much to my chagrin. (I would like that hour back please) I do however look forward to digging in the dirt and making things grow. This however attracts many little furballs to dine in my garden as if it were an all you can eat salad bar. It is ok though, I enjoy their company and as long as the destruction is down to a minimum I can share.

Today I gave a new twist to one of my designs which happened quite by accident. I intended to make a simple trio of my bunny, chick and carrot but when I put it on a tie the pattern was quite nice. So here you have it, Some sugary sweet little critters and a carrot. I hope you enjoy it and it brightens your day.


Freebies Anyone?

13 Black Cats Designs is growing thanks to all of you. We have a brand new website and exciting news to be found there, hint, see awards shows. I made things easier to navigate and I showcased a few of my extra outside painting hobbies like my jewelry. We also have four new staff members to introduce you to.

To celebrate the launch of my new site and to thank all of you for supporting me I am offering a couple of freebies just for you! Every month (maybe more) I will have a design for you to use and it will be available on my website. Jan, Feb, March and to give you a head start April is posted. There are free recipe cards, gift tags, notes and two cute Easter cards for you to print out. If you want to stay notified when there are new freebies posted just click on over to my Facebook page to become a fan or follow this blog and you will never miss a one. (if you love Zazzle coupons this is the place to be too)

So enjoy your gifts, I really hope you like them!

Busy, Busy, Busy

My how the last few days have flow by and that is probably because I have been glued to the computer redesigning an all new website. The launch should be soon as I have a few more photos to add and such (and there is trying to take a photo of my new staff members, they just won't sit still) The new design will have much more information and a slicker look and a few surprises just for you.

While I am here I wanted to tell you of a good deal they have over at Greeting Card Universe. when you buy 10 cards they will only cost you $2.29 each plus postage. Not bad really if you think what you pay in a card store. Just use promo code SPRING229. You can mail them now, set a future date or have a whole bunch shipped to you to give out personally PLUS they can be personalized right online.

Here are a few of my Easter cards, some funny pet cards and a line of baby's first Easter cards plus a link to my store. The site also has many more talented artists to choose from if mine are not your cup of tea.

Zazzle has launched a new line of ProKeds sneakers for men, of course the ladies can wear them too. Available in both low and high tops.

These sneakers can be easily customized by you right online, no design skills needed. The particular shoe above can become any color with just a click of the mouse. Control the color of each panel of the shoe, the sole and the laces

(the above photo shows different color schemes of the Skeleton Key shoe)

I have been looking at all of the new designs various artists have made and there are some great shoes floating around on Zazzle. Below are some that I personally like:
