Flickr co-challenge SSS & Lawn Fawn

Usually, I would say "YAY! It's Friday" but as the week is ending soon which means school/ work will be starting in 3 days' time!

Aiyah! I am glad that I have a week off whereby I could catch-up with several things and also making cards.  First-up, have you heard of the flickr co-challenge with Simon Says Stamp and Lawn Fawn - do check them out over here and here.  It's all about "Get Crafty with Kraft".  

Here is my one-layer card. The base kraft is stamped lightly with MFT Woodgrain and I used the half-die cutting technique with the oval scallop to create the opening.  The die cut is from SSS Small Hello which is adhered onto the scallops.  The butterfly and leaves are from Lawn Fawn Blissful Botanical.  I am using the colour challenge from Color Throwdown and this card will also go into The Kraft Journal.

Thanks for dropping by and have a great weekend!

Reverse Confetti #21

I don't usually have the opportunity to make a get well card but today this card is for a colleague who has been unwell I thought it was also nice to put a teabag in the card.

This card is made by using the sketch from Reverse Confetti.  The following stamp sets and dies used are Petals and Posies, Double Edge Scallop Border and So Stripey. The background embossing is from SU.

I am also popping this into Simon Wednesday Challenge and The Card Concept.


 Added some metalic thread and paperpieced the flower.

Another shaker card for today's card by using the sketch from Your Next Stamp challenge.  The base card is watercoloured and added some embossing paste.  The snow drift and the frames are from MFT.  The sentiment and the little monster is from Taylored Expressions.

We will be having a one-week spring break next week and the children are so looking forward to it.

Have a creative day!

PTI Anniversary Challenge - Ombre Blue

Hello from sunny, The Netherlands!  Yeah!  Sun is shining and hope your weather is as good too!

Another card for PTI challenge and this time it is to create blue ombre card. Here is my take of the ombre and the stamp is from the set PTI Father Knows Best. The background stamping is from MFT.

I added some sequins onto the tree to give a little dimension to the tree.  These sequins are from the talented Annette of My Clever Creations.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges : Addicted to StampsStampin Royalty and Simply Create Too.

Thanks for dropping by and have a lovely Valentine's Day tomorrow!

PTI 8th Anniversary

Here is another card to celebrate PTI 8th Anniversary and today's card is all about gold or silver.

As I am running out of masculine card, I thought this is the perfect reason to make a gold/ silver card with the birthday die-cut. 

Thanks for dropping by!

PTI Anniversary Party

Papertrey Ink is celebrating their 8th anniversary this week, and for this challenge we are simply asked to make a card which is inspired by Maile Belles's creation.

This is one of her many awesome creations.  I was simply attracted to the split technique of her card.

Here is my version of the split card by using PTI Friendly Flowers.  Instead of leaving an empty space on the split part, I added a piece of acetate which was stamped with MFT Woodgrain.  Love how it turned out!


A little update on Claire.  Her host family speaks very little English and they had to use google translate most of the time but the good side is that Claire is picking up some spanish words as well.

Usually, we take lunch and dinner at about 12.30nn and 6pm respectively but over there, their lunch is at 2-3pm and dinner is 9-10pm.

Two more nights and she will be back.
