Last Christmas Cards for 2009

Yes, I am back with another post! I made these for the Smidapaper class earlier but yet to share them with you. So here they are....

A window card using the HA Japanese doll. Do you like the stripey clothes and the hat on the doll? What I did was I stamped the image on a pattern paper, fussy cut and paper pieced them. Easy peasy! It reminded me of the paper doll that I used to play when I was younger :)

More Cosmo Cricket goodness :) My favourite Jolly by Golly paper. Can you see the glitter on the berries? It look better in real life though.

Ok...this is my last post for year 2009. I shall see you next year.....teehee!


Hello ladies! I am finally back to my normal self although the medication does make me feel a little dizzy. But otherwise I am just fine. I did the scope on Tuesday morning and the photo indicate that I had some infection in my stomach. But the doctor can only confirm it when the report is out maybe next week. So meanwhile, I was given some medication to soothe my stomach. What a way to end my 2009, huh :)

Guess what I saw in my mail last week??


and THIS!

All these were from Evelin. She sent this for my sweet! Look at those delish ribbons.....I heart them!! The colors are sooo sweet. She even inlcluded a packet of yummy buttons but I forgot to take pic of them....bummer. They are very delish too! lol. Thanks Sweetie!

Merry Christmas!

Hello ladies! I'm sorry for being so quiet these past few days. And I would like to take a moment to wish all of you 'MERRY CHRISTMAS'!

I was pretty tied up last week that I did not have time to online. Please forgive me if I don't visit your blog that often. I will once everything's back to normal. Right now, I've been feeling unwell and I'm scheduled to do a stomach scope tomorrow morning. Ill be staying a night at the hospital and hopefully by tomorrow we will know the cause of my stomach problem.

Alright, I'll leave you with a card I made last week for the LCOM challenge. This is my last Christmas card for year 2009 :)

Have a great day!

More Christmas stuff to share...........

Good morning ladies!

Christmas is just two days away and I'm almost done with my shopping list. Yesterday, I stayed up until past midnight to make these litte gift bags for friends and colleagues. Inside each of this little bag are M&M's chocolate...very colorful :)

Papers are from various brands...there are Cosmo Cricket Mini Deck, October Afternoon and Making Memories. My top three favourite brands :)

I saw these snowflakes ornament at a store earlier and I thought it would be cute to use on my cards or gift bags, so I bought them right away. Have no regrets :)

Ain't that holly leaves and snowman cute?? It's from my PTI holiday button bits stamp set.

My first attempt in making this Chocolate box/package (call it whatever you want). I kinda like how it turn out. I can see my self making more of this in the future :) Valentine's maybe....

Alrighty....that's all I have for you today! Enjoy whatever you are doing and happy shopping!

Still no news........

.........of Ares after he had gone missing on Sunday :( But the love and support that you ladies showed me are more than enough to keep me going even at times like this! Words are not enough to describe how THANKFUL I am for having great buddies like you all. THANK YOU!

When we learned that Ares was missing yesterday, we went on a frantic search for him but to no avail. I was so sad that I could no longer hold my tears and burst out in my room. Hubby was constantly at my side trying his best to comfort me. At last I regained my composure and went to my craft room and started to create. That's the only way I can get keep Ares out of my least for awhile.

Another set of gift tags that I made using the Holiday Button Bits stamp set. I ran out of red buttons so I subsituted them with the circle ornaments from the Tree Trimming Trio set. Then I dot in the middle with Sakura gell pen.

This bag was made using the Around Town Tote template. Inside the bag was a baby-tee for my bestie.

Side view...

Thanks for stopping by and please forgive my sombre mood.


Today, at around 10:30am I lost my my beloved dog Ares. We were having breakfast outside when we received a call from my FIL that Ares had gone missing from our house. Well, this is not the first time he ran out from the house and usually we'll find him within a few units of apartment from ours. But this time he had gone too far. Our security guard told us that he saw Ares running around and chased a passing motor vehicle before being taken away. I was so angry at the guard. Why can't he keep Ares at his guard post until we return and claim him?? Why he let the man took Ares away?? But then I can't put the blame on him. We can blame no one but ourselves. If I took extra precaution like guarding the door, he won't escape that easily. Ares is a two year old mini Maltese and is extremely playful. That explains why he chased the vehicle....because he wanted to play. He doesn't bite and love being carry by people. That makes him even easier to be taken by someone else. The thought of him made me cry endlessly. And the sight of his cage is just painful. I just pray and hope that I will find him soon.

More Christmas Tags

Happy Friday ladies!

Just a quick pop in to share some Christmas tags I made two days ago.

Other than for gifts, this tag also serves as my wish list that I hanged on our Christmas tree. It's sort of a Christmas game that we played every year. Hmm...what should I wish for?????

Got to run ladies! Am busy with our annual dinner preparation tonight at Hard Rock Hotel. We called it the 'Pyjamas Night'. Yeah....can you imagine me running around the hotel in pj' I certainly hope the guests will not think of me as crazy :) Tata!
