One Layered Challenge: Road trip

 I love the OLS blog. But this month I really struggeled with the theme "Road trip". I have only a few travel stamps - and they are not compatible to an one-layered card...

So I do a little faux stamping because I don't have any "travelled theme" sentiments (guess this is a good excuse for another stamp-shopping trip soon, right?).

Hope there is no grammar mistake - if so, please let me know. Thanks. (the aposthrophe  in "friend's" still looks strange to me)

I printed the sentiment on heavy white card stock using my laser printer. Cut paper in half, fold it to create a top fold card and then stamped  the Peanuts stamp with Memento just above it (I used a stamp-a-ma-jig to get it in the right spot).

Finally I coloured the image with alcohol markers.

Have a great day, thanks for looking.

Stamp: Stampabilities (Snoopy)

Oh happy day

This is another card I made for the One Layered challenge but didn't get it online in time:

The floral design is one of my neglected stamps (I do have a lot of these *sigh*). I really like it and don't get why I don't use it more. Maybe because it's an old discontinued stamp? I don't know. The design is really timeless and versatile.

I inked it with Distress faded jeans, add lots of water and stamp it on a folded card.

Sentiment is from the Avery Elle.

Have a nice sunday,

Another Birthday card

This is another lilac/green birthday card I made:

As usual, the picture isn't that good, sorry.

Stamps are from Hero Arts (sentiment - discontinued) and unknown (flower), coloured with Distress ink pads and a waterbrush.

Thanks for looking.

Happy anniversary, Snickers!

Exactly ten years ago, on April 10th, 2004, I adopted this cute "little cat" you see in my avatar.

I have always been a cat girl (I like dogs, but I LOVE cats) and spent nearly me complete life with cats.

After my last one died at the age of nearly 20 years I have been without a cat for a short time - first I thought my heart would never heal but then I realized that living without a cat is even worse and I slowly start to think about a new family member.

I wanted a cat from an animal shelter, middle-aged (at least five years old), "childproof" and friendly and not a shy one (I love to hug and cuddle a cat). Searching the net and visiting tons of animal shelters -virtually and IRL- I came across a picture of a young tabby white one (way too young), rescued from a greece (!) animal shelter.


She promptly stole my heart and I knew from the very first second "this one - and no one else". I had to wait almost half a year (the "new" worst time of my life) and as I mentioned before -on April 10th, 2004 she moved to our house.

Snickers (named by the animal shelter, like the chocolate candy bar, because she is "so sweet and sticky") is the best which could has happened to me and my family.

She is friendly and cozy and fluffy and well behaved (never ever scratched any piece of furniture in our house) and follows me whereever I go or stay, like a little dog - even to the bathroom and loves to watch me having a shower :) Her favourite place to take a nap is on my knees or between me and the monitor ;-)

I really hope that we will stay another ten years together...
