This card is 1 of the many kinds of christmas cards i've made for my friends and family. BUT the only one i've been able to make a picture of. Why? because I simply forgot to make a pic of the other ones, and they are in the mail allready.

Hope you do like this card... And I hope the receiver does too!

Philip meets baby Lotte

Philip meets Lotte for the first time... Our big guy doesn't know what to do, and he started hissing... (he never ever did that before)

He went to the livingroom, and that's it.

Lotte is so tiny, but smells pretty bad (the smell from the shelter she's from).
I take her out of her "bench" and clipped her nails (just as Philips nails are). 
She has a kitten litterbox, but the firs thing she did after taking a run, is going into Phil's (clean) litterbox... she sniffed and sniffed, and crawled out. Just too funny!  After that we made a little mistake... we have lots of cabinets in our kitchen... and she crawled underneath and behind one...OOPS

Next thing was taking her to a seperate room in her safe place (the travel bench), with water, food and her litterbox, so she can sleep and get used to the new situation without her brothers, sister and mom.

Only thing I hope, is that Phil will play daddy soon, and stops hissing asap...

New 'baby' in the House

So Sorry for the silence, but a lot is going on here.
Next to a lot of medical stuff, there is some fun stuff too...
Her name is Lotte. She is a 8 week old kitten, and she will be joining our family starting thursday.
So Philip (our 8 year old cat) will have a little baby girl to care for and teach, and have fun with, cuddle with etc.

I will "bore" you with lots of pictures of our little one soon...

Watermelon and colors

Half this plate was my breakfast... yumm...
But when I saw this pic after I posted it on facebook, I thought "hm, pretty colors... maybe I can make a card with those colors..."
So if I succeed, i'll post that pic later on here.
But next to that, I dare YOU to use those colors and make something with it.
Please post a comment with your link and I'll pick one of you, and send you a little something for joining my dare... Have Fun!!
