Some of the cards that I made on vacation!

Hello bloggers,

It is a bright sunny day here and it is actually rainy season but there is no sign of rain. I have had such a busy week, unpacking our laundry from the vacation and just getting back to normalcy. It takes a while to get back into the mundane groove of things, you know.

Here are some cards I made while we were holidaying. They are pretty much the same type as I could carry only so much of supplies and punches.

The gold Christmas trees have been punched from the foil wrapping of  chocolates which my hubby and children gladly consumed and I happily saved the foil. I promise I did not tuck into the chocolates for the fear of having a bigger belly.

I am trying to make as many cards as I can for the two bazaars that I have committed to.

Many thanks for your kind help on my heat embossing queries - I will come and answer the emails after I get Aleeza from school.

Lots of love,

It just goes to show that you don't "need everything" to create beautiful cards :) Sometimes using less supplies, really inspires creativity. Love the recycled foil too!
