Meow, I Say Meow

Hope you all have had a nice Sunday :)
I have this fantastic stamp from Stamps Happen and it's called Kitty Chorus

Our household is dominated by two rescued cats, Noodles and Chips. Well when I say dominated by, I really DON'T mean it. Our cats are members of our family and we love them.

Our neighbour's young lad, Luke, said to me, that if I ever have a third cat, he/she should be called Pizza. Luke is really nice, has twinkle in his eyes and is always very polite and smiley lad. :)

Here it is. We don't have Pizza, but this stamp is just perfect.

There is a drops of glossy accent to make eyes and noses shine :)

A Girl and A Boutique

Ok, I wanted to try masking, but ended up cutting the image and sticking it on the background. Maybe next time. Or not.

Anyways, Kenny K again and Promarkers :) This image is nice, cheerful and great for colouring face. Now she even has eyeshadow ;)

Background is Magnolia stamp as well as stone steps. All flowers are homemade and I have nicely inked fingers :)

Making flowers is very therapeutic and you can always burn your fingertips, keeps you awake OUCH! if you are nodding off when crafting at night time.

Small one is made using Tonic Studios Petite punch and almost as thin as tissue paper. Got papers from Home Bargains and they make sweet petals.
Tonic Studios Petal Pairs are used making those three bigger ones, too. Weird looking ball is thick handmade paper + hot glue, and the daisy looking (well, with good heart you can see a daisy) are again thin paper. Green stuff is Marianne cutting die and a maple leaf puch.

This is Marianne cutting die, rolled up a bit with embossing tool (ball 6mm)

What Was It, Gentleman or Thug

Football is a gentlemen's game played by thugs and rugby is a thugs' game played by gentlemen. Who said it? Or who gets the credit saying it? Oscar Wilde some might say, Winston Churchill you may say.

Just a Note

Warning: LOTS of photos. Well, not TOO many, I hope.

1. To show the shiny paper. Also opportunity to show what stuff I've used making this card.

2. Matt, no shine :)

3. Lovely embossing folder from Sizzix gives this sort of "stage glory" to the guitarist.

4. Her hair did not came out the way I was looking for.

5. Eyes and lips are good. I think eyes are the best part of the colouring.

Noodles Is Home Now

Great News: Our Noodles is home now! My lovely neighbours found him about an hour ago hiding in their shed. Theory is that he's run there but couldn't climb out and there was only a gap on the top of the door. He's been there since Tuesday night and oh, his voice is rough and oh how skinny. 

Son heard meowing and asked our neighbours if he can go look for our Noodles. They looked together, force shed door open, and after pile of stuff, Noodles was there behind of all. Neighbour told they have also heard some meowing, but couldn't place where it came from. 5 days in a dark shed, no water, no food. But now Noodles is home and will be spoiled rotten. 

Happy End!

B and D

Daniel, young gentleman from our congregation and Beth celebrated their wedding today. My walking and moving around is getting worse and worse, so I miss all events, but at least I made them a card.

Card blank 8x8
Heart shapes Sizzix framelits
Small tag from Spellbinders
Rose satin roses and bows
String of acrylic pearls

I hope they like this.

3D Project - Cot

Always admired 3D projects but as stubborn as I am, I don't like buying templates. Same goes with this, my first ever cot.

Because our Noodles is missing, I can't concentrate anything, reading, colouring, watching films... nope. Needed something to do, so scrap box, pieces of cardstock and here we are:

Cardstock scraps 300 gsm cream from Papermills Direct
Sizzix 658945 
Tonic Studios wet glue 
Fiskars cutter
Fiskars scissors
Hougie ruler
Hougie board for scoring 

As you can see, it's not properly finished, but I just wanted to try and make one.

Thanks for visiting :)

Noodles is Missing!!!
