It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.

Hey peeps,

You know that whole “sorry I haven’t blogged for so long yada yada yada haven’t fallen off the face of the earth but was so busy bla bla”, so I’m gonna spare you with that 🙂
Instead, there’s some cards for you to look at and also a photo featuring a sheepy friend and canned tuna. Yes, you read that correctly.

First of all this one – especially for my friend Ngawini :

Baasley tracked this one down in a German supermarket, isn’t that neat? 🙂 Give the byuuutiful furson a little cuddle from us 😉
(if you’re not Ngawini or Amber and now therefore confused, look at the last picture from this post)

Anyhow, on to some cards I made recently (some events required those non-holiday cards):

This one was inspired by Kristina (who else, really ^^) and I put my Stampin’ Up Small Heart Punch to good use with some Early Bird PP.

The idea from this card stems from a creation by Kelly Maria a.k.a. LawnFawn (I would’ve linked the exact card [and my data says it was from April 2010] but I can’t for the life of me seem to find it on her blog). There’s some Nutmeg paper from Cosmo as well as Thickers by American Crafts.

And now last but not least a card I made for a friend’s birthday:

The stamped images are from Stampin’ Up. Paper and ink are Papertrey.

In the meantime, I am working e-v-e-r-y  s-i-n-g-l-e  day (and I have lectures, too, of course) which actually leaves no time for buying (let alone making!!) Christmas gifts, baking cookies or reading blogs and getting into the Christmas spirit, really. [Plus, I apparently have moved in with the Grinch himself, which might or might not explain the above title and which might or might not account for my lack of Christmas coziness {or even the illusion thereof}] But I did make some Christmas cards. And I will hopefully get to take a decent photo of the good ones before I send them out/ give them away.

That’s it from me for now, have a good week!

  1. hey you, way over there! Love the cards – heehee, I’m just usinga bit of Early Bird too! Sorry to hear you Xmas spirit is a bit lack-lustre – you get times like that. Try not to work too hard. Hugs Hx

  2. Haha, wie schön, dass nicht nur ich noch Herbstkarten irgendwo im Archiv habe. Schick geworden! Vor allem die oberste Karte ist erste Sahneschnitte 🙂 Wie war denn Dein Treffen mit Angie? LG aus dem eisigkalten (aber noch nicht ganz verschneiten) Aschaffenburg!

  3. Hallo Nina,

    Deine Karten sind klasse, besonders die erste gefällt mir sehr gut.

    Hab ein schönes Wochenende, ob mit oder ohne Xmas-Feeling. Hauptsache, es geht Dir gut und Du hast ein paar Tage zum Entspannen.

    Liebe Grüße, Tina

  7. Hallo Nina,

    danke für Deinen Kommentar. :* Wir sind ruhig und mit dicker Erkältung ins neue Jahr gerutscht, war aber trotzdem schön, denn wir hatten hier oben unterm Dach das erste Silvester und die Böller entfalteten ihr Pracht gleich vor unseren Fenstern. Das war doch nett, oder? 😉 Sah super aus, hihi…

    Zur Crop komme wohl nicht. Hab einen schönen Abend,

    Tina, die Deine Mailaddi nicht finden kann *rotwerd*
