From sunny Singapore and cloudy too

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a quick card I put together from our temporary home in Singapore. We are soon going to move into our own apartment and cannot wait to get settled.

The sentiment has been neatly cut from gift wrap that I bought at Arthur Dailey's in Melbourne while we were there last year. The 3D stickers are from the scrap booking store in Jakarta and the transparent dots, well, let me see if you can guess what they are? Okay, you give up? Let me tell you what they are: blobs of glossy accent and believe me when I say they feel so nice to touch. Nice texture!!!

Butterflies are my lucky symbol and I saw the same butterfly on three different occasions so had to share the pictures. Wonder what the angels are trying to say to me :-)

I will enter this card in: - do your prefer images of animals or people?
(We had two dogs when we were kids and I learned much from them - how loving and kind they are)

Love from your frugal but stylish crafter (lol),

I think the angels are welcoming you to Singapore!!! It's beautiful.

Love your card and I would have never thought to do that with glossy accents but they're great!

Hope you get settled soon and know you'll love it there.

A lovely CAS card. Love your use of glossy accents. Great photos of the batterfly.
Thanks for your concern about my mother. I am spending a lot of time with her and this is precious. She has picked up but we all know this is temporary.
