I have been missing blogging so much!!!

Hello sweet bloggers,

I have been so busy ever since we moved into our own home on the 16th. The girls started their school on the 18th and we are trying our to make our new apartment look like our home. The art room is the last to receive my attention as there is so much to do even though we have come a long way.

Here is a card I made with a recycled image from a brochure. Zeenya was mighty disappointed with my attempt at recycling but I do like what I did even though it was not much.


I promise to come and visit your blogs as soon as my life looks a bit normal. As of now, I am obsessed with hanging pictures, sorting out book cases, arranging cupboards and more.

Have a lovely Thursday,

Monica

Cute froggie

Hello sweet bloggers,

The innocent teachers from my children's ex-school in Jakarta are still in detention but there are two petitions that have been getting substantial support and the media in Canada has done many stories on this unfortunate case. So we are hoping for justice to prevail... And what touches me most is the bravery and the stoic approach of these two teachers. The school community is sending them three meals a day and ensuring they are well in which ever way they can. What amazes me is their positive and humorous attitude.

Now to my card made with my new striped paper, polka dotted ribbon and froggie stamp bought from a book shop here. The ribbon is store made but the sentiment is not - it is handwritten. I like this happy-chappy's smile and that is what attracted to him.


The card below is made by Aleeza. I helped her die cut the sentiment and the cupcake and she coloured them herself. I love the vibrant colours she has used.



I will enter my card in the following challenges:

Wish you a happy Wednesday,

Monica

All Pink

Hello sweet bloggers,

I hope you are having a good weekend and doing what you love and in case you are not, may you soon do that.

Here is a card for CAS(E) this Sketch this week where the challenge is to have something to do with  a tag. Here is my pinky, pink card to show you made with my new banner die cut and new sentiment from Pebbles and the image is a free one from a card making magazine from the UK. The washi tape and gems are from my stash. I can see that the ribbon on the tag needs to be trimmed off a wee bit but I was too eager to post this card so apologies and the photograph could have had a better background.


I will also enter this card in:

I wish you a happy day,

Monica
