Making Christmas cards

Hello sweet bloggers,

I hope you had a good weekend. I went to the nursery and bought pretty plants for our balcony which gave me much happiness. Aleeza was sick for over a week (she is back to school now) and I needed something to cheer me up. 

Here is a super quick Christmas card I made with my new cork stickers. The sentiment stamp is a clear one - it may be Kaiser or Penny Black (it is out of it's packaging, so cannot tell).

I will enter this simple beauty in Less is More this week which is all about Christmas.


I wish you a pleasant day ahead,

Monica

Partly recycled

Hello sweet peeps,

Here is a card I made a while ago with natural material. The frog and the grass have been die cut from the same bark I found in the drive way. The eyes of the frog are wooden beads and I have used my Prismas to shade the frog and grass while the brown outline has been done with a Staedler marker. The sentiment is store bought and the printed paper is from my stash.


Wish you a happy Sunday,

Monica

Hello again with my 'oh so red card'


Hello sweet bloggers,

Here I am back again with another card the very next day. Aleeza is poorly today so while she watches her fave show, I do one of my fave activity - blogging.

This card is made for a friend who wanted a card to give a newly married couple. She wanted lots of red as the couple is Chinese and Asians do love the colour red when it comes to celebrations. So here is my 'oh so red card'.


Thank you for the kind comments on my previous post,

Monica

The tag here is from the bark of a tree

Hello sweet bloggers,

Gosh, life has been busy. I went to do a training course for children which was fairly enjoyable and I met nice people there as well. Apart from that, it has been home and children and card making OFCOURSE. How lucky we are to have a passion and get such happiness out of it. 

Here is my card to show you today which fits in the challenge over at CAS(E) this Sketch this week and for Virginia's View challenge which is all things metallic. 
The gold border stickers were sent by Merry to me and the tag has actually been die cut from a bark of a tree and I have gone over the edges with a metallic Sakura pen in copper. Now, how creative and eco-friendly is that. The key charm is from my stash and the sentiment is a wooden one stamped with a metallic Brilliance. I am unable to recall the name of the stamp, though.


I have been missing the land of blogging so yet could do little about it. I hope you all have been well and healthy. Will make my rounds soon.

Lots of love and thank you for not giving up on me,

Monica
