Say hello to Josh.....

Some of you may remember that our mini Maltese Ares, ran away a year ago. Since then, hubby been pestered me relentlessly about getting a new dog and I, of course strongly objected the idea. Don't get me wrong, I love dog but the thought of cleaning, bathing, feeding and taking care of it (again) is too much and kind of intimidating. And I can't bear the feeling of losing another dog again. Every time hubby brought up the topic, my answer would always be "NO".....not until 3 months ago that I finally lost the battle and now I'm back to being a "mom" to a fur kid.

This is the only photo I have of him as I haven't got time to take more. Ain't he's cute?? (apparently, he loves sticking out his tongue and I'm glad I managed to capture this trademark of his)

Bye and I'll catch with up you soon!

Published cards

In order to maintain my blog, I decided that I should have at least one post a week and gradually increase as time goes by. I just hope to get back in the groove slowly rather than doing nothing about it. And with that said, I have a couple of published cards that I wanted to share here.

April 2011 issue....

May 2011 issue......

June 2011 issue.....

That's just about it. Have a great day ahead, my crafty friends!

Best Friends are the joy of life

Two weeks ago I told myself I would blog more frequent maybe two or three post a week, then last week I was gone again. Now I'm not even sure if I would able to keep up with creating, let alone blogging. I've been inactive in the creating department for a while.....occasionally managed to squeeze a card or two but that's it. Not more than that. I'm feeling really uninspired lately and although there are many things that I want to do but  it seems hard to start. I'm hopeful that time will help me get back the creative juice I once had and the inspirations to create again. I'm hopeful............

If you are a frequent visitor to my blog, I'm sure you will recognized this photo and will probably think that this girl has no other photo to scrap except this. Well, it's almost true. As a self-proclaimed procrastinator, developing photo is always the last thing on my mind. Hence, different layouts with same photo :) I created this layout almost two months ago for Crate Paper June Color Challenge. I didn't win but Tara Anderson featured mine and a few others as her favorite on the blog. You can check out the post here

Hope you have a fun creative day ahead! See you soon!

CASE STUDY Anniversary Blog hop

Case Study is turning ONE!! To celebrate, Case Study is having a month long celebration starting off with a blog hop and lots of fun prizes to be won! How fun! Before we get the party started, make sure that you hop from Barbara Anders blog. But if you are lost or didn't know where to worries. Just hop on over to Case Study Blog to start.

The super sweet and talented Iwona came up with the idea to CASE or be inspired by one of the DT member, be it past or present. All of the DT members are so talented and it was a tough choice to make. Finally, I found the one that truly inspires me. She's none other than the talented and a very dear friend, Amy Wanford! Ohh....did you know that she's one of the top 5 girls in the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol?? Super awesome!

This beautiful card of Amy was published in the May issue of CARDS. But I saw this card on her blog earlier and fell in love with it instantly! I knew this is the card to CASE.

Here's my version......inspired by Amy. I had not one but two banners. Instead of using ribbon, I punched out some hearts from pink polka dots paper to make my own heart banners.

Come and join in the celebrations and be sure to check out all the lovely inspirations. To continue with the hop, your next destination is Clare Buswell's blog. Happy hopping!!!!

Officially back

As the title says it all.....I am back! Back to crafting and back to my lil crafty corner :) I would like to say a MILLION THANKS to my dear friends who are kind enough to leave some sweet words on my previous post. It is comforting to know that you are thinking of me and for that, I am always :) I am leaving you with a card I made a while back. Obviously, I was in a 'shabby' mood when this card was made :)

Have a great day!

*cough*'s so dusty here.

Hello friends!

Time really do flies! My last post dated May 19th and it means I haven't blog for more than two months. Wow! I can't believe I neglected my blog for this long. But things are starting to get better and I just wanted to let you know (in case anyone still visit my poor neglected blog) that I am back into the groove and you'll be seeing more post from me soon. Maybe tomorrow....who knows :)

Take care my friends! Hugs!
