A Quick Post and a Wedding Card

Hello! This is just a very short post as I need to prepare the kids for our dinner out tonight. A friend whom I've last seen about 10 yrs ago is here in Sydney atm. She just got married and they're having their honeymoon here in Australia. We used to work together, she was my crew and I was her manager. She was just a working student then but now she's a FedEx Supervisor and just got married!!! And since I wasn't able to send her a card (she got married 25 OCtober), I decided to whip a card for her and her hubby. This is just a very, very simple one as in no stamping done, only cuttlebugging and Scor Pal-ing ;) .

I used my Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder to emboss the bottom part of my SU! Whisper White. I also used my Scor Pal to create lines around the image, sort of a frame. The stickers (which are very glittery) were from Big W at AU$1.97! The whole wedding sticker page consists of about well, more than 15 stickers and they're all in glitter! Isn't it a bargain again? I matted the Whisper White onto a silver coloured cardstock mat from DCWV metallic stack. And the silver ribbon (I just don't know how you call this thingy LOL!) is from my stash.

This is my very first wedding card actually. Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of the day!

God bless us all.

Another SARAH KAY Card for CDBSC2

Good early morning everyone! (it's 227 am now here in Australia) I was about to go to sleep but since I was able to finish this card a couple of minutes ago, I decided to post it now. This is for Laurie's sketch blog which for me looks gorgeous. I used my RAK Sarah Kay image and my recently-bought Basic Grey paper from their Sugared collection. I'm getting really fond of the Prima flowers...look, I used them again on this card. :)

As always, thanks so much for looking and for visiting my blog. Hope my cards somehow bring inspiration to you.

May God richly bless us all!

Yay!! Crafty Muse is now officially OPEN! It is the blog wherein I'm one of the DT members. And I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to check it out and join our fortnightly challenges. You can now have the chance to use Sammi's images which you can get from the blog itself. The blog challenge starts today. :)

So, as a starter, here are the cards that I made using 2 of Sammi's "Angelique" image:

Isn't she cute?? The 2nd card is patterned from SC146 over SCS. I've finished these two cards 2 days ago but of course, I had to wait for Sammi's go signal before posting them anywhere. As I've said on my previous post, Sammi is still looking for 2 more DT members so if you feel like joining us, grab the first challenge now!
Let me know what you think of this by leaving some comments on my blog.
Thanks ladies and have a blessed day!


Purple & Green SC201 and my Prima Flowers

Howdy everyone?! Sorry if I wasn't able to post for a couple of days. As usual, I've been very busy with the chores and school appointments. Hope everything's doing very well with you all.

I have finished a card just a few minutes ago and I decided to post it here now before going to bed. It's my take for SC201 card sketch challenge over SCS. I was browsing over the forum and saw that SC201 is already up and running so I gathered my senses and put on a card for that. Here's my finished card:

Sorry the photo is a bit blurry. I'll try to take a photo of it again tomorrow and upload the new one here. I used SU!'s Elegant Eggplant and Always Artichoke for this card along with my Dena Designs paper (which is a leftover from my "All Things Purple Card" post, remember?) I used my Sarah Kay image and coloured her in with my Copics. And yes, I already used my new Prima flowers (Essentials 3 range)!! I got this flowers from a shop that was about to closed (that time but now it's already closed)..and so I got these for 50% off! Yay for another bargain! I actually came across these discounted flowers I think 2 days before the shop closed, so it was such a quick decision that I made to purchase them. Here are those flowers:

These are Croquette and Steal Toe Mary Jane from Prima Essentials 3. One box contains 193 flowers (yeah, I did count them LOL!) and the other one has 186 flowers and there are 4 styles of flowers in different colours. Aren't they gorgeous? I got them for AU$6/box and I don't think I could get them any cheaper from other shops.

So, there goes my post for today. It's 1:36 AM now and I need to go to sleep. Congratulations to all my friends and relatives in the US who has Barack Obama now as their President. I believe that a big change has come to your country.

God bless us all!
ETA: I replaced the photo with a clearer shot of the Sarah Kay card. :)
Hope you like it.
