A Male Card

Hello sweet bloggers,

Another quick card to show you made with bare minimum of embellishments made over Christmas while we were in the UK bought at The Range close to my brother-in-law's home. All made with no glue and stamps!!!

A Feathery Card

Hello lovely peeps,

Here is a quick card to show you which I am going to enter for the challenge at CAS(E) this sketch and  and  Less is More which is all about metal. The challenge Let's Craft and Create is embossing (wet or dry) so here is my entry.

This metallic paper was the same that Aleeza got from school. I had finished the scrap she got for me when I made the last hearty card. This was her bit lying around and I got tempted to make this feathery card with it. I have used an embossing folder to give the feathers more dimension and do think it looks nice. The sentiment and coppery crystal finish it off nicely though I wish I had used a flowery font for the sentiment. Anyway, it still looks nice, don't you think?




Wish you a happy Wednesday full of good heath and time to craft,

A hearty card

Hello sweet peeps,

Here is a card I made with gold paper that Aleeza got for me from school. It was a bit crumpled so I thought using my heart die cuts along with embossing would give it fresh look. I had to use it to make her little heart happy and I did.
I know Valentine's Day is over but I still fancied making a card with hearts. It could be used as a modern wedding card.



Catch you later,

Monica

Hello there

Hello sweet bloggers,
I know it has been a long time since I visited or posted and much as try, time seems to elude me. And Aleeza has just recovered from an eye flu' which kept me busy as well.
So here is a quick post with the card I made for Aleeza's sixth birthday. The theme was Minnie Mouse so here is my Minnie Mouse card made with a sticker!!! Well, she loved it and that is all that matters. I wrote a little poem for her inside and she was rather touched with it.


Wish you a happy day,

Happy to blog this evening

Hello sweet bloggers,

I am rather slow with blogging this year... life seems soooo hectic.

Here is a card that I made for Aleeza's lovely teacher who is a male. The coffee bean on the right moved a little but I realized that only after I took the picture. 


We celebrated Aleeza's birthday party last Sunday and both the kids and adults had lots of fun.


Aleeza with her sweet smile at the party.

Look at the joy on her face after opening all her presents.

Wish you a happy weekend,

Lunar year of the Horse

Hello sweet bloggers,

I seem to be going slow with blogging and to top it all, we have changed our internet service provider and that has further slowed down everything.
Aleeza's sixth birthday was on the 7th and we had a party for her today with her class mates. It was a real hit and I will try and post some pictures tomorrow.

Now to my card - it has been been made for a very special person who is in his eighties. I had these special peel offs that I had bought from a museum shop in Prague. I fell in love with the horses the moment I saw them and saved them for over three years. Remember, I spoke of my hoarding instincts earlier? Lol. The stars are from the same sheet while the little rocks are negatives from another sticker sheet. The copper boarder came from Shirley Anne. Thank you so much for all your kindness. The organza ribbon is from my stash and I thought it fits in quite well.



Down below is a card that Aleeza made for her Dad almost on her own to congratulate him on joining another company. Sweet of her, isn't it? 


Here is another card that Aleeza made for her sister.


Hope to catch you later.

Love,

Monica

This is a glueless card ;-)

Hello sweet bloggers,
Am trying to keep on with blogging even though life seems fairly hectic. I got such a sweet card in the mail from Merry which made my heart sing and that inspired me to find time to blog. People in blogland are the kindest, yaay.

So here is my glueless card made while I was in the UK for my sister in law. All self explanatory really... She loved it and so did her son's girl friend so I made an identical one for her as well. 


I will enter this card in:

Now that was a serious bunch of challenges for me.

See you later,

For Less Is More

Hello sweet peeps,
I was looking at my blog and saw that in January all I have is two posts!!! Aleeza was poorly after we came back as Indonesia has been having crazy rain and the temperatures have dropped significantly. Of course nothing to beat the temperatures of cold countries but low enough for us to stay away from using air conditioners or even fans. 
Here is a card I made for one of Zeenya's closest friends who helped me through a phase where we were having mother-teenage daughter issues. This is another stamp free card made with fabric and washi tape and pretty butterfly stickers. Zeenya felt I could have done better but I was quite impressed with it. I hope it meets the challenge rules at LIM this week which is all about rainbows.


I promise to be more consistent with blogging this month.

Love,

Monica
