Blogging again

Hello dear bloggers,

Here is a quick card that was made with washi tape, diecut and ribbon. Does it look too stark? The grey birds are actually silver in real life so it looks less sombre. 




 My girls and I went to the President's estate a few weeks ago as it was an open day and this papaya tree took my fancy so here is a picture with this cute tree. In real life, I am not a big fan of papayas though.


Down below is Aleeza's art work which I may have shared earlier. The colours are so vibrant, aren't they?


Wish you a happy Saturday,

Monica

Pictures of my charity table at the community fair for "Initiative for Peace"

Hello sweet peeps,

Here is my card to show you which was one of the many I made for "Initiative for Peace" which is a an effort of the school that my older one goes to. It is a global peace mission which tries to bring peace to troubled nations. And as I write this, I do hope there is more peace and calm and tolerance and compassion and forgiveness and love in the world. 
I almost sounded like a priestess there, didn't I? However, I do wish that I had a magic wand to bring peace everywhere including my heart to start with. Lol.

Over to my card now which is made with very little yet it looked quite nice when it was ready. The ribbon and button are from my stash and the sentiment is store bought to aid quick card making considering I had to turn out over 40 cards in less than 10 days. And yes, this card sold. 




Down below is my little angel, Aleeza helping me out at the charity fair when she could have actually had lots of fun trying out the various activities for children. Well, that is the price you pay when you have a mother who loves her art dearly. Sorry for the picture quality but that is the best we could manage. I am very grateful to the school for letting me have a table to sell my cards. The poster you see on the table was made by Aleeza. It was made with love so I had to display it. Thank you, Aleeza.




Wish you a nice everything - be it health, craft making, card making, sleeping or eating,

Monica

Hello

Hello bloggers,

Here is my card to show you which was made a few months ago as a good bye card for one of Aleeza's girl scout leaders who was moving out of Singapore. The Ek Success stamps were sent by a friend to me from Jakarta. The papers are from Terry and my stash as well. I have coloured the image with my dear Prisma pencils. The side of one of the designer papers has been punched with my butterfly border punch to enhance the good luck factor since I consider butterflies to be lucky. The pink ribbon and baby pink rose are from my stash while the bow is hand tied. 


I will enter my card in the following challenges:

Where oh where have I been???

Dear sweet peeps,

This is my first post for February and I am in total disbelief about it. Life has been so busy that yet again blogging has taken a back seat.

Here is my card made with die cut flowers which I assembled together and put a seed in the centre. I do love these bright and natural seeds. They look even prettier in real life and their shine amazes me. A friend on Facebook told me that they are similar to lentils and can actually be eaten. The tag here has been recycled while the ribbon and sentiment are from my stash. Since it was Chinese New Year time here, I thought of giving it a cherry blossom look. A bit bright yet they look like Sakuras. This picture was taken before sunrise hence the quality such as this.
