Happy Belated Birthday


Craft Your Passion-Always Anything Goes

Well this is a bit late
But I had to create
A card that I hope he will like.
And not tell me to take a hike:)
Pat Hatt is a poet and he rhymes every day
He talks about anything, what more can I say.
He rhymes much, much better than me
If you check out his blog, you will see
That his cat has some sass
From his little rhyming ass:)

I stamped the cat, just like that. I stamped the flowers in silver and coloured with twinkling H2O's  but there are no bows. I used burnt orange, periwinkle blue and shiny green cardstock and then added the pussy cat. I hope it's not too girly for this cool rhyming cat. If he wants it sent, no problemo, I will gladly do so. No more rhyming:)


Retro Rubber Challange- Anything Goes (RRCB35)
Eclect Ellapu- Purple Team-Flora and Fauna
Simon Says- Come Rain or Shine
Chocolate Baroque Challenge-Colour scheme

This second card was inspired by the Battle of the Bands. Angel's Bark chose a song, "The Track of My Tears" so this card is what I came up with. I had this lady stamp for about 4 or 5 years now (RRCB35). I used distress inks for the background which I sponged on and stamped the lady in a midnight blue. I stamped and embossed a bunch of leaves(some with flowers) and fussy cut them out and adhered it around the lady. I coloured the rose in prisma pencils and added some wink of Stella (name of the brush pens) to the rose which is also a little over a year old. I added some stickles to show case a couple of tears on her and rain on the card.  So I am a day late and I am so, sooooooo late with my A to Z because .....I'm an idiot but I will get it done( fingers crossed).

  1. haha awesome job and a fun rhyme. The cat thinks it is sublime. Can't beat a happy cat on there too. Always great work from you. Second is grand, but of course the cat likes #1 best in his land. #1 here too. Hopefully the a to z you soon get through!

  6. Yup, I choose the cat card. Sad ladies are not required at the moment. Enough angst in my life.

  7. I liked both cards and fitting for the occasions, as we know how Pat likes cat. Track of My Tears, an oldie but a goodie!

    I think Pat rhymes in his dreams, LOL :)

    You will get through A/Z and I'm sure you will be ready for it too! Can't believe it is almost that time already!

  15. We're in the same boat with A to Z, Birgit, but no fear! We will persevere.

    Both cards are gorgeous, but of course I'm partial to the cat and his rhyming ass. He's adorable!

  17. Birgit, this is absolutely stunning!!!! Wow, how cool that my BOTB post inspired such a beautiful creation! I'm so honored. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. I have a touch screen on my computer so I could enlarge it and the detail is amazing. I love the tears. You do incredible work.

    I'm so glad you'll be participating in the A-Z. I'm getting nervous. I'm going to be so busy because I committed to being a minion to check blogs. I hope I can keep up! I'm gearing up for Friday. At least we'll have two days and then a day off for catching up already. haha

    Thanks again for mentioning my blog and the post as your inspiration. The card is beautiful beyond words...
