Partially recycled

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a card made with my new Hello and music notes die cuts. The sentiment and music notes have been recycled from the backing material of an embossing folder and the doily has been recycled as well (from a saucer in a coffee shop to be precise -lol). I ran the Hello sentiment in my CB to give it added texture. The butterflies are stickers from my stash.

Hello there!

Hello sweet bloggers,

Thanks for the kind words of support you all expressed in my last post. I am hoping and praying that wisdom will prevail and the wrong doers will naturally own up to help save the innocent teachers who have been illegally arrested.

This card has been made from an image that I found on a brochure and felt it was just too beautiful to be trashed. So here is the simple beauty I created which gave me much joy.
As you know, we have moved to Singapore, so am contemplating which charity to donate my cards too. In Jakarta, I was supporting five primary schoolers with the sale proceeds of my cards. 

As of now I just may send these cards to the wives of the two teachers who are in prison with the hope that they will need cards very soon to send as thank yous when their dear husbands are released from prison.

Yellow tulips

Hello sweet peeps,

Hope all of you are well and if you are not, I send you healing wishes.

I am sad to state that two innocent teachers from my childrens' previous school in Indonesia have been arrested since the last eleven days as a group of mums have decided to accuse them falsely on charges of fabricated child abuse.

Mothers who support the school and these innocent teachers have started a petition to help them get released. An old student of one of these teachers has started a facebook page which has gathered great support for them. The Canadian press has also done stories on these two innocent men and we hope truth, wisdom and justice will prevail. 
I am doing my best in which ever way I cant to support the school and that takes a lot of my time apart from house hunting and tying together bits and pieces to get the new school admissions in place.

Now to my sweet and simple card... All store bought items and quick assembly here.

Cute teddy bear

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a card to show which has been made with a clear stamp sent by dear Sandra a while ago. I love it and think it is rather cute. And I must give a pat to myself as I have done a good job colouring it using my Prisma pencils. The printed paper was sent to me by Terry and the felt ribbon is what I picked up from Jakarta before leaving. The little blue ribbon is what Lynn sent me some years ago. Thank you, lovely ladies.

Happy Thursday,

I love making thank you cards!

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a thank you card to show you today made with what Sandra sent me in the post some time ago. The sentiment and the butterflies came from her. I have die cut the banners from my new banner dies. Thank you, Sandra.

Thank you, dear Sue

Hello bloggers,

Thank you, dear Sue, for sending me this cute heart embellishment which I have put on this card. It is so full of sweet details that I think it sufficed rather well and the ribbon and sentiment (also ribbon) were just right for it.

And thank God it is Friday,

From sunny Singapore and cloudy too

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a quick card I put together from our temporary home in Singapore. We are soon going to move into our own apartment and cannot wait to get settled.

The sentiment has been neatly cut from gift wrap that I bought at Arthur Dailey's in Melbourne while we were there last year. The 3D stickers are from the scrap booking store in Jakarta and the transparent dots, well, let me see if you can guess what they are? Okay, you give up? Let me tell you what they are: blobs of glossy accent and believe me when I say they feel so nice to touch. Nice texture!!!



Butterflies are my lucky symbol and I saw the same butterfly on three different occasions so had to share the pictures. Wonder what the angels are trying to say to me :-)






I will enter this card in:

(We had two dogs when we were kids and I learned much from them - how loving and kind they are)


Love from your frugal but stylish crafter (lol),

Monica
