[Long Post] of Cards!

[Long Post] 

Now don't say I didn't warn you. I've been tied to my table since 12pm this afternoon hence the number. Ok, there is 1 I meant to post few days back but I forgot to bring back my camera, so it's a day late. Anyway today I didn't feel like going anywhere. Hence, crafting is the only way I can keep my sanity while at home. :)

One of my friend, Isabelle, was very kind to have loaned me her brand-new-and-wrapped color wax pastels to try out. I'm so very grateful because this is a huge investment and I really needed to confirm my preference. So this or copic markers? Actually I have yet to determine, but I do think that the wax pastels are really easy to use. Of course, I'm far far away in terms of skills but it really takes practice before I can get slightly better. Any suggestions - copic or wax pastels? Which do you use?

It's your Birthday!


Remember the earlier project where I made a picnic box? I decided not to waste the bits of pages, big enough for me to keep as scraps, but not big enough for a regular card. I thrilled upon the color challenge, because it fits the papers that I have on hand. Yay! But I'll have to ban my sweetest Miss Anya stamp set for the next few challenges, because I've been neglecting my other TGF stamps! I shan't do favoritism! Hehe...

I've always love gardens, and any scene with flowers in them. Guess it's a girls' thing yah?

Cute Card Thursday: Challenge #204 "Flower Power"

Thank you



This card was inspired by the simplicity yet powerful card by Lori Craig and I just had to case her! My choice of blue was by erm "accident"? Haha, just so happened that I wanted to go for a different color tone from my usual. And that you will see more "accidents" down this post. Very adventurous this week~ By the way, all the papers unless noted, are mostly from scraps. I feel more space for new nice pp soon! yay!

Tags! I love tags so much I buy them every country when I see one, and acquire all the die-cuts that I can possibly have. And I like that it can be so lady-like on one hand, while masculine on the other. Just so many possibilities of using them in cards and in LOs. or just simply a tag on the presents. So happy that I dressed up so many of them, all kept for future use. This time, I wanted to produce something simple, something masculine. This card is meant for my cousin, whose birthday was 3 hours ago. :P I can be such a nutcase when it comes to passing them presents / cards BEFORE their birthdays. hahaha. But what are cousins for? :P Now that my sewing machine is back to my possession, I'm suspecting you will be seeing more stitches.This card was also a different color scheme from my usual, and I think it might just be another color scheme I will go for more often now. Edwin's looking super handsome! :)

Just Magnolia: Challenge #144 "Tags"

YOU are my sunshine, my only sunshine


Ever think of your friends during Valentines' Day? I do. oh well, it really isn't all about lovers right? This card is already sent out to one of my best-est friend cum mentor cum teacher. In life, our parents can really teach us a lot, but there are obstacles out there that we have to get over on our own. In each of our paths, we meet different people. He was always there for me when I needed a helping hand or simply being a good example which I can follow. Guided me through the darkest periods of my life, and on Valentines' Day, I thought of him. So this card is dedicated to Hock Chuan, thank you for being my sunshine. :) This card has already been posted. :)

Cut some hearts out free hand in different sizes and sewed the middle. Lifted the sides with foam dots to make the heart look "3D".
