Good morning! How's the weather over there? I woke up to a rainy day today which is good because the heat is just too much to bear. Though wet but I really enjoy the cool weather now :)

I received my scarlet lime kit a few days ago and I was pretty excited. The kit was packed with so many vintage stuff and for a second I didn't know what to do with them. Well, you know I don't create vintage card and I'm not sure if I can create one as well. But when my bestie saw the kit, she immediately ordered a birthday card from me and wanted me to create a vintage card for a 80+ year old lady. Thanks to her....I now know what to do with my new kit :)

For this card, I combined the kit with this week's 2S4Y sketch. I distressed the edges to give it a vintage look. I even handstitched the border cos my bestie saw the baby card I made earlier and she's drawn to the stitching. I'm not sure if this card is anything but vintage to tell me :)
Thanks for stopping by! And happy crafting

World Cardmaking Day

Have you heard? World Cardmaking day is just 3 days away! I never participate in WCD day before and hopefully this year I'll be a part of this celebration. How do you celebrate? As for me, I will drop by Smidapaper with my girlfriend in the morning, have lunch and the rest of the day will be spend on making cards :) to cancel my facial Oh yeah...please do check out Cath at Moxie Fab World. She's doing a world tour of card making.....unforunately, she did not include Malaysia. But that's alright as I can see all the fabulous creations that she'll be featuring from all over the world. How excited!

Anyway, here's another card I created on last weekend. Sheila gave me some new embossed cardstock to try. The cardstock has some beautiful raised pattern and I try not to cover it up so much. Ok, this is not good. I can't remember the brand that I use for the stamp. Was it from Fancy Pants???

See the glossy accents on the stamped trees? I love how it gives the image a translucent surface :) I made my own snow by tearing 2 pieces of white cardstock and top it off with stickles.How easy :)

It's Monday......

Hello sistas! I just drop off my in-laws at the airport today....they are going for a holiday to Taiwan. I'm gonna be alone again but my SIL will come over to stay with me for a few nights.

Today I would like to share with you the cards I made last weekend. In my opinion, kraft paper goes well with any color and you don't have to crack your head about matching the color. For this card, I'm using October Afternoon paper and rub-ons (the tiny butterfly). I've been keeping this thread for almost 13 years and finally put it to good use :)
**Edit to add: I entered this card for the Cards blog challenge.

As for this card, I combined the October Afternoon paper with lots of stitching. As I don't have a sewing machine, it took me quite a while to handstitched the borders. But it's ok coz I was watching Emmy at that time :) Then I apply the ducks in a row rub-ons. They are so darn cute! Don't you just love them?? The ribbon is from Making Memories (I {HEART} pink!)

Have a wonderful day! See ya!

Hello to you

Happy Friday! This week past by really fast! I hope my weekend will be slow though :) Just a very quick post to show you the card I made for Smidapaper 2 months ago.

The paper are from Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon. Two of my favourite brands in one card! How cool!! Can you see the sheer maya road tag? The sentiment is a die cut from Cuttlebug. I don't have this's from Sheila (the owner). I love it! I would say that this card have all my favourite things...stitching, flower, button and my fav paper :)

Wedding Cards

Good morning to you! Last week, a friend of mine ordered some wedding cards from me. I still have some Making Memories wedding paper in my stash and I made a set using the collection. The ribbons, chipboard and stickers are bought from a local craftstore.

I love this flourish transparencies. It comes with polka dots too. How elegant!

Happy crafting!

Trip to Ipoh

I had a busy yet fantastic weekend! How about you? I went for a short trip to Ipoh with my family on Sunday. Man, I ate a lot during the entire journey. I've got some photos to show you here.

First up....BREAKFAST

I had butter toast, half boiled egg and a glass of iced coffee. I keep it light and simple. Got to save some space for more food :)

Next is....LUNCH. We were supposed to go for yong tau fu (local food) but the stall was not open until 4pm. Instead, we went for wan tan mee (dumplings noodle). At first, I didn't know that the shop was that popular until I saw clippings of newspaper on the wall. One must assume that with the wide coverage from the media, the food must be very tasty right? How wrong! The only thing that's nice is the sui kao (prawn dumplings). A total dissappointment!

Wan Tan Mee (dumplings noodle...cantonese style).

Stewed pork ribs.

This is the tasty prawn dumplings. At least one of the best I've tasted so far.

Luckily the rojak (fruit salad...the Malaysian style) we ordered taste good.

TEA TIME.......I'm a big fan of donut. I even bought three more for take away. Yummy!

Next is DINNER. The place we went are so jam packed with people. I was sweating all over while having my dinner. But dinner was GOOD! Everyone else in my family enjoyed it. So it worth the We ordered lots of food but I only have two photos to show you. You know why? Coz I was too busy eating that I totally forgotten about taking pictures :)

We had stir fry crab in black pepper and salted egg. This is really good!

And lastly an ice cold mixed fruits for dessert....yummylicious!

Thanks for visiting me! Have a great day!
