We just got back from Singapore last night after a whirlwind of activity...
Thanks to all of you for asking after my husband - he is faring much better and on the road to recovery.
I managed to find time to gets lots of crafting goodies for myself - yippeeeeeee!!!
Singapore for us is like a haven because everything is just so easily available.
Here, in Jakarta I have to struggle to get craft supplies but in Singapore it is the opposite.
Still not like the States or the UK but good enough!
And the food is pretty good, the air is clean, the public train and bus system is a breeze... It is truly the Switzerland of Asia!
Saw how much I could waffle without even being asked a single question!
I have made this card for Aleeza's birthday today - she turns three and it seems like she was born yesterday!
240 gsm cardstock in creamy yellow for the base.
Blue cardstock stamped with Hero Arts flower stamp with Jim Holtz distress ink - broken porcelein.
Scalloped Martha Stewart border punch used at the bottom of the blue card stock before sticking it on to the base cardstock.
Hero Arts little girl stamp stamped with Stazon permanent ink and coloured in with Darwent water colour pencils.
Blue and off white lace from my stash.
Organza roses in yellow, blue and mauve from my stash, too.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is handwritten with Sakura metallic pens.
I was quite pleased with the way the card turned out even though the picture seems a bit blurry.
Hope you like it - Aleeza did! : )
I am going to enter this card for the following challenges:
