Party Kittens!

For noen uker siden fikk jeg godstolen min tilbake fra reparasjon ~ endelig! Har savnet den i mange måneder, en god stund før jul knakk den sammen og trengte sveising under setet. Arvet stolen fra bestemor da hun døde i '94, og den må være av ekstremt bra kvalitet siden den har vart så lenge uten å gå istykker!  Moren min sier at bestemor fikk den helt tidlig på åttitallet!
Er kjempeglad å få den tilbake, men har ikke hatt så mye mulighet til å glede meg over det ettersom helsa uansett har vært laber..  og så har jeg mista litt scrappelysten... Håper 'mojoen' kommer snart tilbake! Stolen er iallefall på plassen sin, så får vi se om det blir noe scrapping i påska! :)

Kortet mitt idag er DT inspirasjon for utfordring #205. hos Creative Fingers. Vi blir sponset av vår egen DT Angelique, med et flott metall blomst sett! Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være ♥


I got my good old craft chair back from repair some weeks ago, but haven't been in best health of late so I still haven't gotten into the 'groove' yet. It tends to be like that when you're not been able to craft for a long period ~ need to get my mojo back! At least my grandmas chair is in my room waiting for me now :) 

It's actually amazing it only broke down for the first time around christmas last year ~ after beeing used several times each week for more than 30 years! My mum says that grandma got the chair in the early 80's! Thats quality for ya! Don't make them like that anymore thats for sure ♥ I had to take a photo to show you the wonder chair lol :)

On this card I've used one of my oldest wood-mounted rubberstamps ~ I have so many of them that really needs to be used more! Absolutely LOVE theese fun  party cats :)

My card is DT inspiration for our challenge #205. at Creative Fingers, and we're sponsored by our own DT Angelique this time with some gorgeous metal flowers. As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥

♥ God Påske ~ Happy Easter ♥

  1. Your card is so cute. I love those cats. I'm so happy you got your chair back. A good one makes a difference. We hate 2 Serta chairs and they really are nice. A good working chair too. I'm scared that one day they'll go out and I'll have a time finding one. I hope ours can both be repaired like yours if something goes wrong. [Bunny]

  2. I just love your party pussy cats!! It's lovely to see you joining us at Cretalicious Challenges.
