RAK from Savitri

Hello ladies! It's been a few days since I last update my post and I just want to let you know that I am still alive....(chuckle).

Last week, I received a a super cute card from my bloggy friend Savitri!!! I met Savitri when I started this blog almost 2 years ago. I can't believe how fast time flies. I was still new to the blogging world at that time and Savitri was the first few people who commented on my blog and she still does even until now.She is sweet and funny and full of inspirations. I will cherish our online friendship forever! Head over to her blog to see her creative work and also her two beautiful gals :) Hugs to M and Jovie!

Have a great day!

Old Stuff Challenge by Teri Anderson

Happy Friday people!! I am back with another card today. This was created yesterday for Teri's challenge (if you don't know who Teri is.....she's the go-to-gal at Papercrafts). Teri came up with a fun challenge called the 'Old Stuff Challenge' and she challenged us to make a card using old stuff that we have neglected for a while. I thought to myself what a great idea!

Since I can't spend too much time on a card, I came up with a simple design using the journaling spot by Making Memories that I hoarded....'old' stuff. The butterflies were punched out from EK Success paper....another 'old' stuff :) I always love challenge like this because it encourage me to dig deep in my stash and sometimes I found stuff that I don't remember having them. The sentiment is a rub-on by OA.

On other note, did anyone of you watch Glee?? I watched the 1st episode on Wednesday and I was completely swoon! Love the songs, love the characters and love the story! Can I call myself a gleek now?? It's a term for Glee fans :))

Hello Card

Hello there! It's Thursday time flies! Chinese New Year Celebration is less than a month away and there are so much stuff to do. Cleaning the house, cook for the family and blah blah blah. And not to forget that I have to give red packets this year. In our Chinese tradition, it is customary that a married person give red packets to childrens and single adults during CNY. Each year I would received about RM500 worth of red packets from relatives and friends...what a great fortune! But this year I lost my steady income because I got married last year and it's time for me to give red packets (which I'm so reluctant to

Today's card is made a while back but I have not show you before. So here it is.....more OA stuff. Love love OA!! I used my cuttlebug to die cut the sentiment which belongs to Sheila. I don't know why but I love to see staples on you?? I know my non-crafting friends loathe this idea. I still love it anyway :)

Happy crafting!

Edited to add: Anyone going to CHA??? I so wish that you could bring me with you!!! You can sneak me in your luggage :))

Surprise Card

Since I came back from KL and with my backache I had stop making cards for a while. The last card I made was about two weeks ago. Yesterday I took the medication that the doctor gave be specific they are painkiller. It will not cure my backache but at least it made them go away. I felt so much better and when I got back from work, my head was bursting with ideas and my hand is itching to create. I came up with an 'evil' plan :) Hubby usually play badminton with his buddies on every Monday. As soon as he exit the front door, I immediately dashed into my craft room. It's evil isn't it?? shhhs....don't tell I was watching Golden Globe on E channel so I moved my stuff and start working from the couch. How comfortable! At least I can lie down for a while when I feel tired or when I feel the stiffness on my shoulder and back. Oh btw, did you watch the Golden Globe yesterday? I'm glad that Meryl Streep her acting!

This is what I created while watching the tv. I am glad I could multi task :) Before I start, I know that I must use the stamp set by Basic Grey that I had for a while. I love the teapot and cup stamp! Then I think of the color combo that I want to use on the card. I don't normally go for pink, green and kraft but I don't know why I dig the color combo yesterday. The patterned paper is in one of my Scarlet Lime kit by American Crafts. The ribbon is from my friend, Evelin. Thanks sweetie. The polka dots is from my PTI set. I don't know why but I think this is my fav card among all the cards I made. It made me smile :)

Not to forget that the layout of this card is based on the sketch over at Card Patterns. I had stop playing with their sketch for some time and when I visited their blog yesterday, I was greatly inspired by the sketch and the DT's creations. My friend Yvonne is part of the design team as well! I still remember the day when my card was choosen as fab 5 and later I won the guest design spot. I was overwhelmed by the opporunity that the ladies of Card Patterns gave me. I shall never forget that :)

I am a bit chatty today and thanks for stopping by here :) May you have a great day

OA goodness

Good morning ladies!

How was you weekend? Mine was not so great. My back and neck is acting up again and I was in terrible pain. I didn't want to go out, no appetite, feeling dizzy and I either lie down or sleep for almost the entire day. I was so weak at one point that I felt like a living dead. Thank GOD I was feeling okay today. Although I am still experiencing some pain here and there but it's bearable. I would like to say thank you to all my bloggy friends who send me well wishes! Love you all!

I hope I did not bore you with my backache stuff. I'll try to focus more on cards here. Let's see....I have a card to share with you today. I have a few cards that I have yet to share and this is one of the bunch.

I decided to use my neglected OA paper and die cuts. I have those die cuts for a while but I seldom use it. You are gonna see more cards featuring the OA die cuts. This is super easy and quick to made. It's simple but I heart it!

Thanks for stopping! Have a great day!

Update on my backache

Hello ladies!

I have two cards to share today. These were created for the Smidapaper class that I conducted back in October. For this class, I taught how to use various punches to make flowers. It's very easy and quick to make.

My backache was so bad that I could no longer bear the pain. So yesterday I went to see an orthopaedic and we did the X-ray to determine the cause of the pain. The X-ray showed that my neck is deformed.....a normal person should have a straight neck but mine is bend forward and if I don't take care of it now, it will get worse. Doctor said I shouldn't carry heavy things or bend down. Not even running as it will cause damage to my spine. Hubby asked the doctor whether making card is part of the cause of my neck pain. Guess what......the doctor said it could be the cause. Oh boy! I was so sad to hear that! Now, I was under strict card making at the moment :( Sad isn't it??? Sigh.......

Me + Jessy

Hey peeps! Yes, I am still alive :) I was back from KL on Sunday and did not have time to craft. I didn't even have time/energy to sort out the craft supplies that I bought during my trip. I don't know what happen but I had a terrible back pain for the last couple of days. I'm still experiencing the pain while I was typing this. It got worse to the point that I had difficulty to stand straight or walk straight. I thought the pain got something to do with my stomach problem but it's not. So, I have to see an orthopaedic soon....if the pain persist. I hate to go to hospital again.....especially the long wait. It's no fun :(

Let's talk about happy stuff :) I finally get to meet Jessy while I was in KL! She's so friendly and I enjoy chatting with her! Too bad our meeting lasted only an hour+ because I got to rush back for my cousin's wedding.
Jessy: "It was fun chatting with you and thanks for the beautiful stuff that you gave me. I would love to meet you again!"

I was supposed to meet Evelin too but didn't make it because I had to leave early on Sunday. There's always next time :)

Have a great day :)

Happy Saturday ladies!

I am away from my beloved computer when you are reading this (I love scheduled post!) I have to attend a cousins wedding in KL and am probably indulging myself with shopping right now :) Plus, I'll be meeting with Jessy and Evelin while I was there if time permits.

I am going to make this really short. But before I go, I'll leave you with a card I made last weekend.

Bye and have a great weekend!

Good morning ladies!!

I made this card for the Embellish Magazine's current color challenge. Black, pink and red is such a perfect color combination for Valentine's card. I want the heart to be the focal point of the card so I keep everything simple with limited embellies. I hope you can see the pearls underneath the sentiment though. I finished this within 15 mins and I wanted to make more for the challenge but I was too sleepy to continue.  

Ok, onto the next stuff. Two weeks ago I reveived a RAK from Evelin and yesterday I received another one from Amy. I was filled with joy and excitement each time I receive a card from a bloggy friend. And this morning I decided that since Valentine's day is only a month away, I would like to spread some love and joy to my bloggy friends from everywhere around the world. So what I will do is, I will make a card for each and everyone of you who commented on this post. It doesn't matter if you are a first timer or a regular here. You will receive a card from me no matter what. When you commented on this post, please email me your snail mail address and a card will be heading your way :) It's that easy!

Look what I found in the mail today????

I found this beautiful card! If you are an avid follower or fan of Amy, you'll find this card familiar. Yes, this card is by Amy all the way from Washington! Isn't she's the sweetest thing? I always love happy mail! Thanks sista!

Oh yeah....just a little update on the Twilight Saga. I finished reading New Moon last week and this is what I am reading now.......

Is it me or what but I find Bella quite annoying in this book. I only begin to read this book so hopefully she does not annoy the hell outta me as I read further :)

All about chipboard

Hello Ladies!

The test result came back positive and I was infected with Helicobacter Pylori. I was given a week of medicines to kill the bacteria in my stomach and I was told by the doctor that there might be some effect cause by the medicines. Oh boy! I just hope that after the medication, the bacteria will be gone forever and ever and never return to my stomachland :)

Today I am gonna share with you the cards I made using some of the stuff that I've been hoarding for a while like this Cosmo Cricket chipboard. They are really cute and I am hoping to create more card out of it. I still do not have a sewing machine so I painstakingly handstitched on the card. It took me half an hour to do the stitching!

Next up is a card I made using the butterfly chipboard by K&Co. They are really pretty with different sizes and designs.

Have a great day!!

LCOM Monday Challenge - Flowers

It's Monday and this week it is my turn to do the challenge over at LCOM. If you know me, it won't be difficult for you to guess what's my challenge to the gals. It's FLOWERS! Yes, this week's challenge is to create flower can be from tissue, ribbon, felt, fabric or anything else. The possibilities are endless. And I decided to use ribbon to create a flower card.

I bought the ribbon at Daiso in Singapore back in 2008. How time flies! I really love this ribbon and that explains why I still have it after two years :) The center of the flower is a brad from GCD Studio (it's in one my Scarlet Lime Kit). I deliberated whether to use sequins or pearls for the stem and leaves. Finally, I decided to go with pearls :)

I hope you have great day! Thanks for stopping by!
