Just my ticket....

Hi you all!  I heard on the news that the floods are really reaching epic dimensions, with 45000 people evacuated, and 2 more dams which have burst, flooding more villages and communities. Poor people, I can't imagine how dreadful this must be for them.
They also told us on the news that the NSA are reading Google, Facebook etc to - err -'keep up with what's going on in the world'. Well, if any of you reading here today, you're welcome guys!

I made this card for the challenge at OOAH, 'tickets please'.
The background has been made from some card that not only has this wild pattern, but is also embossed to look like fur. I am always astonished what I find in my bottomless pit AKA hall closet. The image is from a Gecko Galz collage sheet 'The cat's Meow'. The ticket cardstock is from My Mind's Eye, and the embellishments from my stash. This was fun to make.





At Moo-Mania the challenge this week is to use the triple stamping technique. Okay girls, I tried. I tried so hard that I ended up with 5 layers instead of three. I think I will now have to call it quintuple stamping and layering. Sounds grand, although I can't say I like what I have made, but I tried! Not easy with shaky fingers, but I tried. No comment! The thistle stamp is from Crafty Individuals, and the swirls from I don't know who, but it's a stamp I like.

Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by.

  1. It is so sad about the floods Valerie and I am with you in thinking of all the poor people affected by them.

    Your piece for Out of a Hat is amazing and love the way you have used the tickets.

    What a wonderful use of the Moo as well and the colours on that piece go so well together.

    Have a great day

    Love Chrissie xx

  3. oh do love the leopard card - great paper isn't it! Love the ladies little corset - all in all a great piece. The other piece is great as well, perhaps you just don't like the style. Hope you find some more wonderful play things in your bottomless pit of a closet. The floods --- terrible! Glad you are safe and sound. hugs Donna

  4. die gelayerte Karte für die MOO Mania Cahllenge ist ne Wucht in Tüten Valerie und die Tickets-Thema -Karte find ich auch super..wieder mit vielen raffinierten Details !

    Oh ja ... die Nachrichten derzeit...
    es ist bedrückend...

    es geht mir sehr nahe..

    mein pPpa hatte auch Wasser im Keller ( meine Güte war nicht schlimm..nach drei Tagen alles erledigt - nur im Keller halt- aber er hat sich dermaßen aufgeregt innerlich... weil er sowas noch nie mitgemacht hatte ... dass er zum Arzt musste ..er hat es ein wenig mit dem Herzen) und ein Nerverl ist er auch..hab ich von ihm...

    ich stell mir dann die unglaublichen Schicksale vor... meine Güte.. wir hatten letztes Jahr hier nen orkanartigen Sturm.. da hat es von fast allen Dächern was gerissen ( eine Scheune mit Pferden und noch ne Lagerhalle komplette zertört) Wald kaputt ohne Ende.... da hab ich auch das erste Mal in meinem Leben diese Gewalt miterleben können.. beim Gegenübernachbar hat es eine 18 meter hohe Tanne umgehauen.. die fiel auf unsern Zaun----

    ich hatte solche Angst...

    ist nichts sonst passiert --- bei uns -
    aber diese Angst und Bedrohung des Lebens ...ich kann ein ganz klein wenig mitfühlen....

    einfach schrecklich!

  12. That Gecko Galz image looks fabulous with the leopard prints. Wonderful project! I like the triple layering too!

  13. Awful for the people who are flooded. You said earlier how much it was raining but we never dreamt it would be as bad.
    On a lighter note, I really like your triple stamping Moo, a technique I hadn't come across until Moo Mania posted it, and I love the way you have added an extra thistle to give the 3D effect, very clever indeed.

  31. Your card reminds me of the musical "Chicago" and for some unknown reason, I cannot picture either one of us in the OOAH costum!!! Well done - you just have to love that pretty lady and the mask she took to the costume ball.

  36. Just been having my usual weekly catch up on your posts Val. Your journalling and cards are such brilliant and inspirational creations once again. Love the stamp you used on your slender bender too. Must see whether I can squeeze a card in there. Have a lovely weekend. Hugs from the uk.
