Much Thanks!

Hello my sweet friends!

Today I have little card to share using paper from one my favorite manufacturer, October Afternoon. The yellow polka dots paper is from the Modern Home Maker collection. Can you see the music note background? Ohh, how I love the stamp from Papertrey! (the stamp is not mine though, I borrowed it from Sheila). While creating this card, I realized that I don't have any ink pads at home because I left them in the store so I used distress ink instead. I love the vintage-y effect that can only be achieved with distress ink :)

That's all I have for today. Enjoy your weekend!

Busy Bee...

I just realized that Chinese New Year is only a week away! Oh my! I am so stress out here! It's a tradition
to held a reunion dinner on New Year's eve where family members get together to celebrate. So being a filial daugther-in-law (ahem), I have to carry out duty like cooking and cleaning the house (it's my least favorite things to do in the world!). I even have to write down a list of things to buy and plan my cleaning schedule. Crazy right? I know. Ok, I am not going to stress you out too :)

Let me share with you a card I made last week using the Parisan Anthology paper again. Love love this paper so much!

Thanks so much for coming here! Hugs to you all!

Bali Trip - Part1

Hello friends! I finally sorted the photos we took during our recent holiday to Bali. We spent four wonderful days there and it was truly a memorable trip for us. As promised, here are the pictures for your viewing pleasure :)

The beautiful view of Bali from thousands feet above.

Arriving at Ngurah Rai airport. While waiting for our transport, I can't help but to strike a pose :)

The first restaurant we visited was a French restaurant that was located in one of the back alley in Kuta. I remembered we were the only customer there and were served by a very friendly waiter that later became our friend. 

After dinner, we walked around Kuta and did our first shopping. Hubby is really great at bargaining and I bought two dresses from this shop at very cheap price :)

Nasi Padang (Balinese local food)

Breakfast by the pool.

This view was taken from a coffee plantation which was located on a hill top. It is one of our favorite place ever! Thanks to the local guide who brought us there.

This, my friend is the animal that make the world most expensive coffee out of its poo poo :)

Complimentary coffee and herbal tea.

Coffee Luwak, the world most expensive coffee.

Hubby with our local guide, Ketut.

A small packet of coffee Luwak cost us RM100 (about USD28). It truly is one of the most expensive coffee I've ever bought :)

Part 2 to be continued..........

2 become 1

Helllooooo!!! I am back!!! It feels great to be back home! And it feels even great to be able to update my blog and get connected with you all again! I really really miss you all. I know I've been really bad at commenting lately and I wish I have more time to do so. Thanks so much for your understanding lovelies!!

I came back from Bali on last Friday and it was such a nice place to visit. Two thumbs up! Balinese people are very friendly (except the immigration officers....they look like they could kill me on the spot, lol) and we really love the place. We snapped more than 200 pictures and I am going to sort them out during my day off. Hopefully I can show them to you soon. Something happened to us during the trip and I am going to share them with you on my next post. You might want to add this to your "how to travel smart" list :)

But for now I have a card to share! Yay! It's been weeks since I update new card here. I finished work at 10pm yesterday and hubby took me out for an ice cream at baskin Robbins. Sweetness! Now sure if it was the capuccino ice-cream I had but I couldn't sleep after that. I watched football together with hubby and my mind wandered to something else. Hehe, I was thinking of the beautiful Parisan Anthology collection by Pink Paislee and I can't help but to create a card in the middle of the night :)

The text patterned paper is originally in white but I distressed with spun sugar distress ink by Tim Holtz. The thing I like about this paper is the embossed flourish background. It's glossy and act like a resistant when I swipe the distress ink all over it. Can you see it from the picture? Why don't you give it a try if you have this paper in your stash :) They are also available in Smidapaper

Happy Monday!

Another TOOT TOOT!

Hello friends! It's 2011 already and I hope it is not too late to wish you all "HAPPY NEW YEAR"!!
So what's your new year resolution? Me? I don't have any because I know I can never fulfill them. But I do have a goal that I hope to achieve :)

Last year has been a great creative year for me! I set a few goals and one of them is to get published. I never imagine seeing my cards on the glossy pages of CARDS magazine but then dream come true. As my talented friend, Lindsay wrote on her blog "If you dream it, you can achieve it"! And it's so true! One of my ultimate goal is to grace the cover of CARDS magazine some day and guesss what??? That day has finally come and my card is on the cover of CARDS magazine January 2011 issue!!! I am truly thankful for what life brings and I look forward to 2011.

I would like to thank each and everyone of you who took the time to leave comments on my blog! It means a lot especially after a bad day. Your kinds words never fail to brighten my day and bring smiles to my face. Your support and encouragement have certainly keep me going and make me want to this for as long as I live. Thank you so much my friend! I sincerely hope 2011 will be a great and fulfilling year to you!

Happy day!
