I am so happy that I managed to participate in this ATC swap. As a cat-addicted and cat-crazy person it was quite plain for me to make cat ATCs. I just loved making them. I hope, the Chixs who get them like them as well! And, to tell the truth, I really would like to receive some cat ATCs, too … Each participant had to make 6 ATCs, here are mine:
Unfortunately, they are a little bit blurred. I really have to buy a new digital camera in the near future.
This year, I decided to buy a birthday cake for my husband at the baker’s. There was a great variety of “special” cakes. I chose a cream-cheese cake with pears and a cute topping – Petterson and Findus (Findus is the cat) which are characters from a children’s book series written by Sven Nordqvist, but let’s take a look at it:
Unfortunately, there is no piece of the cake left, but Petterson and Findus were made of plastic, so we still have something of the cake ;-)!
Below you can see one of the Petterson-and-Findus books:
As promised, here are some photos I took of our house and garden during the last 2 snowy months:
We also took some photos at the small zoo of Braunschweig:
… struck again! Yesterday, we went out for lunch. On the way back from the restaurant to the car, there was an icy spot on the street which I could not see, I slipped and … fell down. Thank goodness, it was only very painful, but nothing got broken! However, the whole right-hand side of my body hurt (and still is hurting!), I did not know whether I should stand, sit or walk … so, unfortunately, I was neither able to sit in front of the computer nor to download photos … I hope I will manage that during the week …
And, at the moment, it is starting to snow again … can’t remember such a long, snowy and icy winter! The last one was decades ago …
… and hope that I can manage to enter some winter and cat photos during the coming weekend!
Here’s already one photo of Ludwig, our British Shorthair tomcat (isn’t he just cute?):
This phot is a little bit older … in the meantime he weighs 8 kg and is a very sightly tomcat and has two companions, Tolouse and Passepartout, as well British Shorthair tomcats. Most of the time they are bosom buddies, but there are other times, too ;-)!
I made this card last week for my husband’s birthday. He really loved it!
Well, after some personal blows I am back again in the blogging world and hope to update regularly.
Meanwhile, my creative muse returned … and here are first results. I made 6 ATCs for the “Flourishes ATC” swap via the Yahoo group of ArtchixStudio :
