This card took us five minutes to make


Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a super quick card that Aleeza and I made for an eight year old's birthday in five minutes just before her bed time on a week day. She chose the image from my stash and we glittered the edges and the flower which is not really visible in the picture. For the flower centre a button came in handy while the sentiment is from my stash. 
My card seems to fit the sketch over at CAS(e) this Sketch or so I hope. Lol.



Wish you a wonderful Sunday,

Monica

For CAS(e) this sketch and LIM

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is my card for CAS(e) this Sketch  and LIM this week and I do hope you like it. 
The flowers are hand made by me and the Spellbinder leaves (die cut from a cake box) have been sponged with distressed ink. The sentiment is store bought and the background leaves are from my balcony - am trying to get creative with my photography skills. Lol.





Wish you a happy Sunday,

Monica

I am back

Hello sweet bloggers,

I am sorry to be missing for such a long while and I have to say that I missed blogging. We were away to a pretty island called Batam in Indonesia for a night last week as you will see from the pictures. It was just an hour-long boat ride away. Sadly, it was polluted with oil and strong smell yet the scenic beauty was divine.

Here is a card I made a few days ago. I think it is a Penny Black stamp that I bought a few years ago but have used it the very first time on this card. All the embellies here are from my stash.


Below is a picture taken while we were on the boat to the island

Life is beautiful

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a card to show to show you today which I stamped like over a year ago and let it be coz' I did not know what to do with it. And last night, I found that this pretty polka dotted ribbon from American Craft matches nicely with it. I think it is an Itty Bitty Unity stamp and I have used a metallic Brilliance stamp pad to stamp it. I could have added liquid pearls or something to liven it up but my older one felt it was fine the way it was, so here it is. By the way, the sentiment was part of the same stamp and that suits me just fine considering my cards are mostly sentiment free. 



Wish you a happy Sunday,

Monica

This makes me happy

Hello sweet peeps,

Thank you for your kind words on my last post and here is my card to show you today which I actually stamped and coloured while I was at the Botanic Gardens on Saturday afternoon. 

I know I could have done better but can you believe it that I forgot to take the acrylic block with me and had to use the acetate sheet alone to stamp. I took a few Prisma pencils along to colour and came back home and put my simple beauty together. Yes, no ribbon, no bling, no nothing - just a flat, very flat card.
I will enter this card in the challenge hosted by LIM this week which is about 'what makes you happy' and this stamp with poppies (from Hero Arts, I think) sure makes me happy. 




Off to do some commenting now,

Super bright and cheery

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a card to show you today which I made a few weeks ago. The designer paper was sent to me by Terry and the cupcakes are from my stash. The embossed sentiment is from a set of Sizzix folders.
I have to say that I do love the brightness of this card.


Wish you a happy day,

Monica
