Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library

Furstly before we kick off today's fun, I hope mew've all had oodles of Valentine's cards and extra cuddles and snuggles today, and if mew haven't had a card, here's ours because we love mew!

Oh my, what a week it's been!  Now I know some of mew already follow my Angry Amber Instagram account but for those of mew who don't follow me, I'm going to share my post from this week; as I was challenged by The B Team to do the #DollyPartonChallenge.

Mew see Smooch, Melvyn and Fudge entered my library the other day and said. "Amber we bet mew won't do the Dolly Parton Challenge on your instacat account!"

I gave them a rather surreptitious glance, gritted my teeth and slunk back behind the stack of books I was sorting. Quickly grabbing my ipaw tablet, I searched this previously unheard-of Dolly Parton and said challenge related to her purrsonage.

Aftur quickly scanning and seeing what all the fuss was, I popped up from behind the stacks to hear those three young fluffers sniggering and said, "Mew young fluffers should know better than to challenge me, I accept!"

And so dearest readers, be prepared to be completely blown away by my rendition of the Dolly Parton Challenge.

Valentine Cat Lover Coloring Book


J and I Books

Here's A Small Snippet of the Book Blurb:      

This is the "purrfect" colouring book for a cat lover. The funky, quirky and sassy cats are sure to make you smile, the loving couples are adorable.

8.5 x 11 inches * 64 pages
30 images printed on white paper * single-sided pages help prevent bleed-through
durable glossy cover
suitable for use with crayons, markers, gel pens, coloured pencils, ink and paint

Now I know this isn't my usual affair, and we already did our Valentine's Colouring with Cats on Monday, but it's getting quite hard to find Valentine cat books.  There are a few cozy mysteries, but I'm a bit over those at the moment, so today I thought I'd really push the library envelope and try something entirely new for my reviews.

What I really liked about it this colouring book is that it only has one picture per page, just like ours and what we thought when Basil furst decided to design a colouring book all those years ago.

The designs are really nice, and I used a piece of thin cardboard behind the page I was wurking on, as sometimes pen marks do go through the paper; so a top tip is to get a piece of card the same size as the page then it doesn't matter how much pressure mew use.

Anyhoo I digress, the book is lovely and it was only just released on Amazon a couple of weeks ago, so brand new and well worth £5.39 on Amazon Prime, plus mew get 30 different pics to colour.  At one a week that's over half a years colouring, so pretty good value and mew can use many different mediums to colour with too.  Mew can choose between supurr easy/very simplistic colouring options to more involved pictures - what's not to love, there's a picture for effurypurrdy! MOL

A fab book, whether a gift or for yourself, I think it's well worth the money and definitely so for the fun factor.
