Hello once again! I thank God as I feel a bit better now that's why I'm posting my 2nd card for today. I've been browsing yesterday for some card techniques and I stumbled upon this faux quilt card tutorial. There are really lots of tutorials with regards to this card so Mr. Google really is a big help! :)

I just used scraps from the papers that I used on my previous cards. I used my square Nesties since I don't have a square punch. After adhering the die-cut square papers, I then cut it using Labels Eight then did some faux stitching to make it look more realistic. Since I have faux stitching here, I then made this one my 2nd entry for the MDUC#39 challenge. Tilda was coloured using Copics and Sugarloaf markers.

This card goes out to my niece for her birthday. I hope she likes it.

Thanks for visiting!




Sweet Baby

Hi everyone! I will just make this post short as I'm feeling a bit unwell. This has been requested to me by one of the lovely youth members in our church. The baby image is from Image Tree which, as far as I can remember, was only inked up twice. I tried to just stick with white and pink combo and to make it look soft. This is also my take on WT264 challenge over SCS and the theme is "Sweet Child".

The background was embossed using Fiskars texture plates, punched the bottom part with Fiskars Threading Water punch and the name was stamped using my Just Rite stampers Times New Roman lower case font. The image was coloured with Copic markers and Bic Mark It and the pink satin bow was made with my Bow Easy!

Thanks for the visit and may you all have a blessed day!

It's Holy Thursday and this morning, the topic on my daily Bible Devotional is about building our relationship with our Creator while we are still alive. Because according to Psalm 39:11, "Everyone's life is only a breath." That's why while we are still alive, we must always remember to give thanks and praise to God for everything that He's doing to us. Whatever situation we are in at any point, we must praise God for He alone knows what's best for us. Build up and deepen our relationship with Him by accepting and receiving His son Jesus as our personal Lord and Saviour so we can spend eternal life with Him knowing we are saved. God made the ultimate sacrifice when He offered His only son to die on the cross just for us to be saved. And that's the very essence of this Easter -- for us to rejoice that Jesus has conquered the grave; that He rose from the dead and we too, will experience that if we are in Him and remain in Him. :) I hope you'll set aside even a short period of time to contemplate this Holy Week and to read your Bible everyday to strengthen your faith.

Okay, my card here is my take for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge #39 --to use stitching either real or fake. In my case, I did a faux stitching as I don't have a sewing machine & I don't know how to sew using that. LOL! I was about to colour this RAK image with my Prismacolor pencil but I found out that my Dark Purple pencil was missing. :( I've checked my colour chart to know that I have it eversince, and yes it was but the pencil itself was missing. So, I decided to use my Sugarloaf Markers which were "untouched" for a very long time. Actually, I coloured it with the combination of Sugarloaf markers, Copics and Bic Mark It. :) The sentiment is from a craft show months ago which was stamped onto white cs, cut with Labels 8 (the smallest size) and sponged around it using So Saffron while still inside the die.

The dp is one of the very first dp's that I acquired when I was just starting. I think this one's by Dena Designs. I made the felt flower (the pink ones) using my Flower Creations Shapeabilities and combined it the flowers I have on my stash.

This is all for now. Thanks for visit and God bless us all!





Happy APRIL!! Wow! Time really flies so fast, I can't believe APRIL is already here! And my boys have started their self-proclaimed holiday today. LOL! Well, officially, their holiday starts tomorrow but they're having theirs today. :)

I have a birthday card to share with you today. This image is another RAK image and a first-time for me to colour in. I believe this cute girl is from Sugar Nellie's Gorjuss Girls. I coloured her with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. And on this card too, I did the "tile technique" which is so much fun to do! I thought it was kinda hard but it was actually easy as a pie. I took a closer shot so you can see the shine on the tile:

The lovely dp is from Basic Grey Lilykate pad. The leaves were created using my single fern punch. What I did was to punch heaps of them and glued them altogether onto a piece of cardstock so it will appear that they're just coming from one branch. That's how I improvise for now but my fern punch that I ordered from BEC will be here anytime soon! YAY! Can't wait! The sentiment is from Jemac stamp which I bought for $1 during a craft show.

This card is actually for my niece who will be celebrating her 18th this Sat. I've just posted it and I know it will arrive late considering it's Holy Week and they're overseas! Well, better late than never. :)

Thanks for the visit! Till next post. God bless us all.

Yes! Let us rejoice for Jesus has conquered the grave!!! Isn't this the main reason why we celebrate Easter?

Hello everyone! I hope you are well upon reading this post. I've just finished a very simple card which is my entry for the following challenges:

- SSCC32 (taken from Isaiah 40:31; to mount up part/s of your image, or do paper tole technique)

- ODBDSLC7 (Easter challenge)

The cross is part of the Spiritual Sketches set by Inkadinkado which I just received yesterday. Got a bit of a bargain there over EBAY! :) The sentiment is from ODBD's Worship the Lord set. It's actually a Christmas stamp set but I think we can always use the word "rejoice" when we acknowledge God's love and goodness, and to express joy when we know that Christ died and rose again to save us from our sins and to give us everlasting life, am I right?

The parts that I mounted with pop dots are the two big lilies (correct me if I'm wrong but I believe this is a lily :) ). Here's a closer look:

I coloured my image with Copic markers and Bic Mark-It! The background was embossed with Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder and spritzed with Glimmer Mist Pearl. Finished it off with 4 Kaiserpearls on the four corners.

That's it for now. Thanks so much for the visit and may our good Lord bless and keep you always.

Hugs to all,

Happy Monday blogging world!!! Let's all thank God for another week and let's pray that He'll help us spend this week wisely and to direct us in using our talents for His glory!

My card for today is my very first Easter card for this year. LOL!! Yeah, I'm late I know. I mean, I have an excuse 'coz I don't have any Easter themed stamp except from few RAK stamped images that I received from my online friends last year.

The gorgeous Tilda Holding Bunny image was coloured with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. I coloured her yesterday morning and the colours were inspired by a dp from Basic Grey. As I was in the prcoess of putting the card together, I suddenly felt like sponging. Hence, the sponged background of sky and ground. :) I hope you can see the sky here very well as it's a combo of blues and pinks. And when I saw the challenge over Simon Says Blog, that is to have glimmer, shimmer or sparkle, I then opened my new Martha Stewart Golden Glitter and started pouring some on Tilda's dress. Here's a close-up:

In this photo, you can now clearly see my blue and pink sky! How do you like it? :) As I've said awhile ago, I don't have any Easter themed stamp which also means I don't have any sentiment that says "Happy Easter". So, I improvised on this one. I have this Technique Tuesday mini stamp (yes, it's Easter themed but it only has an egg, small flowers and the words Easter & Eggs). What I did, I looked on my stamps binder and searched for a word "happy" that will complement the the "Easter" word from TT. I tried and experimented and then BAM! Got the right combo! If you could only see the look on my face when I was mounting my sentiment up. So, so happy! :) I also did a faux bow on this card which also first for me.

Thanks so much for looking and please let me know that you've been here by leaving a comment or two. I appreciate it, really!

Have a blessed day!
