A quick card

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a card I made for one of my daughter's friends but she chose the soccer card over it.
I have sponged in the stencil with distressed inks and have used stickers and candy and my card was done. I thought I would be creative with the backdrop but maybe I should have used something else.



Wish you a happy day,

Japan was lovely

Hello sweet bloggers,

I sure have been away for the longest time I think. We were on a week's vacation to Tokyo and Kyoto and it was just beautiful. I was struck with the elegance and charm of Kyoto and it's beautiful Buddhist temples more than anything else. I found grace and charm every where I went and indeed it was a transformational trip for me. I even got to sit and meditate in one of the temples so next time I am missing you know where to find me. Just kidding there, lol.

Down below are some snapshots of  the cherry blossoms and the temples we visited in Tokyo and Kyoto.

This a real flower - I couldn't help but take a picture.

Down below is my hand made tissue paper Sakura made while we were waiting for the bus to take us home from a pretty park.



A real stunning golden temple



These two pictures are my doodles in a restaurant on the disposable paper mat - sorry for the picture quality.



The Goddess of Mercy temple below.



This is the entrance to another temple




I promise to come and visit you soon,

For a basket ball lover

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is my card to show you which was made for my older one's school friend. He is a basketball player and I was lucky enough to receive these clear stamps from a very kind lady who lives in our block. They just were exactly what I was looking for. I have done faux tacking around the stamped nestie with a metallic pen which gives it more colour. My daughter did not want a sentiment which was just as well for me.




Below is my little one's unedited recipe of a banana cake which I found so cute that I had to share it. As you can see, squishing is all that is required and voila the cake is ready. Lol.



I will try and do some visiting now,

Monica
