Vintage Birthday

Hi all! Sorry I wasn't able to come back yesterday to post this card that I promised you. Things just got busy and I didn't get the chance to sit and post. Anyway, here it is...a Vintage Birthday card which a friend of mine requested for her mum.

What can you say about the gorgeous dp?? Very gorgeous isn't it?!?? And yes, they're from K&Company Charlotte collection. It's very lovely as they look like fabric or a very expensive wallpaper, lol! And they're very vintage to look at!

I used 3 colours of cs here. Purely Pomegranate for the base, Rose Red for the Labels 4 frame and the one punched with Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch, and of course Whisper White for the sentiment panel. The Bible verse btw is from Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection 1 which was stamped with Purely Pomegranate (loaded with Versamark first) then heat-embossed with clear ep.

I once again did some faux stiching here after edge distressing and inking to make it look more vintage. Flowers are from Prima which I also sponged with Versafine Vintage Sepia.

This lovely K&Company paper was purchased from Windsor Cottage Botanicals and they have an ongoing 25% off on designer papers 'til the end of this month. There are lots of good finds there so visit it when you get the chance.

Thanks for the visit until next post.



24 September 2009


Hello everyone! Yesterday was an awful day for most of us here in Australia. Sydney (where I am) experienced Dust Storm and other states experienced other natural calamities. Hubby went to work at 5am and in just a little while sent me an SMS and told me not to do the laundry as there's a dust storm approaching. And yeah, at around 5:15am as I looked out from our window, I saw a very red sky and the scene was so eerie. I woke up my eldest son and showed him what I've seen and he too was shocked. It was very windy and so I went out of our room and shut all the windows just so the dust won't come in though it's a bit late. I managed to took photos from our window and here they are:

That's what we had yesterday. DS1 and I prayed in the middle of the Dust Storm because in natural calamities such as this, there's nothing you can do but pray because God is always in control of everything. After praying, I called some of our family friends to check out how they're doing or if they were, at that time, aware of what's happening outside.

The sky turned clear and blue around 2pm though it's too dusty around here. :) I already did some vacuuming and cleaning and I think will be doing it until weekend. My cough got worse and I sometimes feel suffocated because of the dust but I thank God really for taking control of everything.

I will be sharing with you a card which I made a few days ago. It's Vintage Birthday (just so you have a hint, LOL!) and I used my new K&Company Charlotte paper pad (so yummy!).

Be back later. Thanks for the visit! Have a blessed day.
