"Owl are you?" card

Its a busy week again, with my girl's birthday party, friends' gathering and with projects that are to be due soon. A lot of projects are still in progress. Time is short, especially with the coming of Christmas and family holiday trip. My goal this month is to complete all my projects before 16 Dec. WOW!! Tight schedule!! 

Anyway, just created this card for Lilypad's "Simon Says Stamp Presents a Product challenge". The challenge is to make a card that uses buttons. Here's my take:

Used a lot of clear buttons for the body by pasting them onto different patterned papers. The eyes are made by layering 2 different sizes of buttons. Also used Spellbinders dies to cut the papers for the body and wings. Not sure it looks like an owl as my girl actually says its either a butterfly or a dragonfly. ha ha...

Cards For The Needy Campaign

My friend, Agnes had been planning a Make A Card campaign for the needy that will be launched next year. The cards are made for people who just needs a word of encouragement.  And its open to everyone around the world. So if anyone is interested to contribute, please go to the link above or email me. Thanks so much.

To kick start the campaign, I have made these 3 cards.

Card 1: You're So Special

Card 2: Sending you lots of sunshine

Card 3: Wishing you love & laughter

Love blossoms!!

Recently me have been into colours. Realised that I have been using alot of bright colours in my cards and layouts. that how I feel?? Colourful??? Cheerful??

Created this card last night, using the sketch from Lily Pad's - The Craft's Meow Presents A Sketch Challenge.

Its a simple card using Hero Arts& Sizzix stamp set. The dies are really useful for fast cutting of the butterflies. I used to fussy cut myself and wasted a lot of time. Thanks to this die that I no longer have to do that.

Sand Castle

Sun, Sand, Sea = Fun!!!

My kids love to build sand castles. Well, I guess all kids do.. Ha ha.. This picture was taken at East Coast Park a few years back. Its the Apple Tree (playgroup) gang gathering. Love how my kids play!! My gal loves making sand castle while my boy loves playing with seawater. He loves to scoop up the water into the pail and pouring into the sand (into the "lake" around the castle). Hmm... funny how come the water level in the "lake" never rises..ha ha..Pure innocence..

Created this layout using the sketch and color palette from The Color Room

A simple, sweet and fun layout. Used distressed stains to create the 3 background colors:

Here, me embossed half the chipboard alphas to create the sand look. Stamped, colored, cut out and layered the castle:

Drew the sun and stamped the clouds, cut out and distressed:

Here's the sketch and color palette:

Life is precious... Should always treasure your loved ones.... N make up with your foes...(if any).... Cos life is so fragile...

But God is good. His mercies endure forever...

Hmm... seems quite sentimental...

Anyway, just got the news last night that Aunt Shirley had gone home to the Lord. She never woke up from the coma. God has his own timing who and when to take home... So me feel comforted that at least she didn't have to suffer.

Just want to end that God is a great comforter.. Pray that He will comfort all the family members and friends of Aunt Shirley. God bless!
