Hello sweet peeps,
Thank you for all your kind comments on my previous post and here I am to show you another card. The green striped paper is recycled from a magazine and the washi tape is from my stash. The dragonfly was sent to me by Sandra two or three years ago. Aleeza and I glittered it for fun. I cannot remember the name of the rubber stamp but I LOVE it.


Happy crafting,
Monica

Hello there

Hello sweet bloggers,
Summer is here and schools are closed so it is out with routine and in with lazy mornings and such. 
Here is my card to show you today made with an image that I painted with my fingers a while ago while I was doing art with Aleeza. I cut the image out and stuck it on the leaves which have been punched on hand made paper from India. I have used a thick coat of glossy accents on the rose as there were tell tale glue stains on it. I know this rustic card did not need the addition of gloss however I had little choice to cover up my faux pas.
I will enter this in the following challenges:

I love my new thinlets from Sizzix

Hello sweet peeps,
Here is a another quick card to show you today. I do hope the background is not too overpowering. It is a cloudy evening and I could not find enough natural light to take a clear picture. Well, this card is mad with my new Sizzix thinlets and I have to say that I LOVE this font. The printed paper has been recycled from a magazine and the chevrons are from an Ek Success border punch that has been lying with me since ages.

Lots of art and craft for you,

Hello sweet bloggers,
Here is my card to show you today with an image that I stamped a while ago. I think this the clear stamp is from a Hero Arts set. It has been coloured in with Lyra pencils and I have stuck tiny glass beads for the centres. The paper and embroidery yarn are from my stash and the sentiment is a store bought one.

Quick but cute

Hello sweet bloggers,
Here is a quickie from me to share with you today. The paper on this card has been recycled from the packaging material of a diary, I think. I have this habit of storing anything I find beautiful which I feel could be recycled so I am not able to keep a tab on its origins. The sweet bee is an image I bought at the book store in Jakarta. Quick and cute, right? Lol.

Hello sweet bloggers,
Here is my card to show you made with an Inkadinkado stamp. I have stamped directly on to the cardstock and have used pearls to finish it off. Elegant, don't you think?
