Thank you, Karin!

 Hello lovely bloggers,

Here I am posting my latest card from my very own lappy!!!

A few months ago, Karin sent me this lovely parcel with super duper crafty stuff - thanks so much for that, dear!
How lucky am I to have such kind souls accompany me on my journey and help me spread smiles across the path.

The flower you see in the centre of the card is from Karin - isn't it pretty? I love the way the blues turned out on this card... 
This is how the aperture card looks... Those little dots on the sides have been done with glitter glue and a Sakura pen has been used to make those loops - kind of gels, don't you think?

Above is a close up of the pretty flower. I stamped an MS doily stamp with my pearlised stamp pad on the card stock to make the flower look bigger and add some more elegance to it. 

This is how the inside looks... the receiver would have to use a metallic paper to write a message though.

I am planning to send some cards to the hospital in Singapore soon.

Catch you later - taking Aleeza to the play ground.

Hi Monica, it was so wonderful to hear from you....sorry I have not got back to you sooner. Life can sure get busy at times. Love this card, especially the way you have done the bling and pen on the sides. I am glad to hear that you have new laptop all of your own. So handy to be able to take it places with you. I hope to be back next week and catch up with your blog. My friend and I are at a local markets tomorrow so am busy pricing and making cards. Take care

Hello Monica...You are the sweetest! I was just so glad I could share with you :) That flower looks so lovely layered on that doily stamp! See, I never would have thought to do that, or make the peek a boo window for it either. And the color is just gorgeous! A beautiful card made by a beautiful lady :)
