Good morning and happy Wednesday! Welcome to the July Crafty Wednesday Challenge right here on my blog! This post is coming to you later than usual. We had a young very pregnant stray cat land on our porch and we've been trying to figure out what to do. We've prepared a box for her in our garage as she can't come inside now (we have two cats already). And we spent a lot of time with her in the backyard. She is such sweet affectionate kitty! Will be taking her to the vet to see if she has a microchip and to be sure everything is ok with her, but otherwise we don't have a clue about what to do ... Then somehow July snuck up on me this morning!
So am a taking the easy way and extending the theme of Summertime throughout July. You can find the linky tool at the end of this post as usual. Also, last month's winner and my top 3 are listed below.
