Yeah, that's the title of my card. I made this one last night but I was too sleepy already to post it.I've used my Studio G rubber-mounted stamp (for the first time) and my $1 "chicks" from Clear Dollar stamps (first time as well). Aren't these chicks gorgeous??? I coloured them in with my Bic Mark-It and shadowed them with my Copic.

Off to have some lunch now. Will try to make cards later if my time permits me. Hubby wants the whole family to go out after his work. That sounds fun!

See y'all later! Have a blessed day! (CHICK RULES!!) lol! Oh, and Happy October, too! (yay! my birthday's coming soon!)

More THANK YOU Cards and RILEY!

What a nice day!! Jared (my DS1) is on his school holiday starting today for 2weeks (Spring Break) so that would mean there will be no rushing in the mornings (at least for 2 weeks) and more time for me to organise our small home and more time to make cards. =) Yay!

I was able to make 3 cards for today (and still be making more after dinner lol!). I've just started to make Thank You cards and these are primarily for our church. These cards will be given everytime there is an invited preacher or speaker. I haven't told anyone in the church about this (just my darling hubby), I just felt that I need to make cards and hand them off to our Pastor's wife once I finish them all. We normally have guest preachers/speakers once a month so I guess, 10 cards will do atm. Here are my first two finished Thank You cards:

These are actually easy cards. They are simple yet they somehow look elegant. I just noticed that I haven't been using my Cuttlebug embossing folders (and I have about 14 of them!) so, I decided to use them this time.

There was no stamping done in any of these two cards. The sentiments were all computer-generated and I guess, I'll be making more sentiments using my computer. Much easier and more personalised. On this card I used my Bloom Dots folder and my Standard Circle and Petite Scallop Circle nestabilities.

While on this one, I used my Paisley embossing folder (one of my favs) and just cut out a sentiment to go along with it. The base cardstock colour somehow looked like blue but IRL it's actually dark eggplant-coloured. (and the grosgrain ribbon as well) I used the same materials on both cards which are mostly from my stash.

And this one is RILEY which is another RAK image I received from Peggy. (thanks again Peggy, hope you're doing well, you haven't been posting lately). I just found out that I have this lilac-coloured cardstock already ran through the Cuttlebug, so I decided to use it for this image. This is the first time I coloured a Riley for a simple reason that I don't even have a single Riley on my collection lol! Funny! I hope I entertained you with my new creations. Will be posting more later.

See yah!


NEWS, New Stuffs and a Card

Hello everybody!!! How are y'all doing? I've been off the blogging world for a day and it's really been a quite busy weekend for me. Anyways, I have a good news for you, I recently joined a card competition on one of the online shops where I buy my stuffs. Actually, it just so happened that I bought something from there during the competition period and that's why I was able to get an entry (entries actually). The winners were drawn and one of my entries were picked and landed 2nd place! (yay for me!). My card entry that won was previously posted here before and you can see it on Bizzy Becs as all the winners entries are posted there for 4 weeks. (ETA: I'll post the prizes once I receive them...anytime this week! So excited!)

And for the new stuffs once again...I got these last Thursday and I still haven't got the chance to play with them. I got SU! cardstocks and their mat pack (paper piercing). I also got Imaginisce stamps, cupcake buttons and theImaginisce gorgeous papers that you see on your screen.

And finally, after 2 long days, I was able to come up with a card (which I just finished a few minutes ago). This lovely image (Elzybells) was a RAK from Peggy, my SBS 22 sister (thanks so much Peggy!). I used my leftover Chatterbox patterned paper and my DCWV matchmaker cardstocks. I coloured the image with watercolour pencils using my blender pen and printed a sentiment to complement the image.

That's all for today folks! I'm not really feeling well since yesterday so I guess I really need to go to sleep now. Please include me in your prayers. :-)

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!
