Woodland Animals

Here it is again: my f a v o u r i t e stamp... don´t know why I love this owl so much!

Today´s card is for the challenges at Wee Memories : "Woodland Animals" and the CR84FN Color Challenge

It was inspired by the novel "The Secret Garden" by Frances Hodgson Burnett - first published in 1910/1911, now a classic of English children´s literature.

I love the aura of this owl - it seems to hide a secret.... to confirm this impression I added a piece of a door lock, that I purchased a while ago at an antique flea market....

The second picture caught the sparkle on the owl´s feathering and around her eyes a bit better...

Have a nice weekend and thanks for stopping by today!

An atmosphere of gloom

2 funerals in 1 day... this picture from our garden represents my mood today: grey in grey... with a bright hope in between... (Revelation 21:4) . . .. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

It was just a matter of minutes to create this album with "My Memories Suite 2" scrapbooking software:

Bling It Up!

MY FAVOURITE TECHNIQUE!!! So I HAVE to participate in HEROARTS November challenge!

Bling It Up! - Bring out the trimmings and make your projects shine! “Blinged” projects can be of ANY theme. 

I LOVE all things "blingy", shiny, glittery, sparkly... I can´t get enough of the stars at night or the sunshine on a water-surface or snowy landscape... or rhinestones or glitter.... or diamonds or zircons... or whatever sparkles in the light ! LOVE IT!

But there are also more decent ways to bling something up : PEARLS!! Love them, too!!

When I started working as a chemist 20 yrs. ago I gifted myself with a beautiful pearl necklace with a soft rose-colored shine... I adore it to this day!

So everytime I get the chance to bling something up - I will do it!

This HEROARTS stamp ("Peacock") my Mum gifted me with, is perfect for this purpose!

I stamped and embossed the image and colored it in with my Promarkers.

I´d also like to enter this in The Cuttlebug Spot Challenge "Anything goes"

Thanks so much for stopping in today!

PS: Please check out my software giveaway!

An owl for "Cutie"

"Celebration" is over - and I´m relieved - my friend (the medical assistant) liked her card I posted HERE :-)

But her sweet little daughter - I call her Cutie - should not come away empty-handed either - so I made her a cute little owl I saw on THIS BLOG POST  The (Austrian) author posted the instructions HERE

I filled it with chocolate-candies...

... and set it on her plate....

I guess, she liked it... at least the chocolate in it!

(This was, before we gave her some pillows on her chair!)

Just in case you wonder what we had for dinner on this festive evening: my hubby wished for a salmon-cream-tarte with caviar and crayfish...

... and I made an Indian dish as main course - yummy!

I hope you enjoyed my little report and don´t forget to checkout the software giveaway HERE!
