Our wild pet!

We always had company of deer in our garden. They love to eat the blossoms of all our flowers. That's why we hardly have flower pots in our garden. ;-) In the last couple of days one deer is always very close to the house and eats the fresh leaves of the plants from our neighbours forest. 
This reminded me that I bought a package of deer made of felt in our gardening centre. So, I thought I want to make a card with the Bambi on it. It was a very hard challenge for me and I spent more than 2 hours on that card but I think it is lovely. It's the deer in our garden on the way to eat the last blossom remaining. ;-)

First Birthday Card!

My best friends baby girl turned one recently and I made her a card as well.
I bought a new set of die cuts and had to try it immediately. I love my Sizzix!

Die Cut Flowers!

There are two flower challenges this week, so I had the chance to use my die cut flowers again. This time I didn't use my favourite colors purple and pink but yellow and orange. I like the outcome!
As there is always a birthday approaching I made another birthday card.

Welcome Noe!

I love to make baby cards, as I have so much cute paper for it. Therefore, I made a card for my friend in South Tirol who welcomed her second child, a boy named Noe. Despite all the paper I got, I stayed very simple that time.
I am looking forward to meet little Noe in person, sometime in autumn this year.

Crossword Puzzle Card!

Some time ago I saw a very nice card using a Crossword Puzzle. As the birthday of a friend was approaching I went looking for a Crossword Puzzle which would fit my greetings. As "Happy Birthday" would have been to easy I went for longer words. I loved the letter counting and cutting but it was a time consuming task.

A Textured Vase for my Grandma!

I am following the blog "a Beautiful Mess" and saw in April a fantastic new project: a textured vase inspired by Johnathan Adler. As I was looking for a birthday present for my grandmother at that time I immediately knew that I am making her such a vase.
As my grandma loves cats I made her a kitten vase.
I didn't get the same materials as Elsie used for her vases and I am not 100 % satisfied with the outcome. On some points you still see the glue but it was hard to find a glue that sticks on glass anyway. I didn't get self adhesive foam here in Austria at such short notice so I had to use that glue. However, my grandma liked the vase very much!

Flowers of Spring have arrived!

Inspired by all the flowers blooming in our garden, I made the following card for my aunts birthday. A ladybeetle and butterfly complete the scenery.
Once more I used my sewing machine for an extra touch.

That's What Friends Are For!

For my best friends 30th birthday I made a friendship card, which shows some of the activities we do/did together. As her favourite animal is the butterfly I had to add one as well. ;-)

Life in the Jungle!

I have so many paper with all different kind of animals on it, that I thought I have to combine some of them. 
As I have a very nice embossing folder with leaves I came up with a the idea of a card with animals in the jungle. Just literally, as I think you don't find all of my used animals in the jungle. ;-) But I like the outcome. Now I just have to think about a special person I can give it to.

Baptism of Sebastian!

I made a card for the baptism of my cousin's son Sebastian.
Once more I was inspired by a card of Alex from the Stoffsalon. I love to use my sewing machine for my cards.
