Make A Wish

It’s such a bittersweet day for me today. I am getting ready to go to my best friend’s day at the moment and am sneaking in a little post before I go. Today’s her last day in Jakarta and tonight she is leaving for Sydney again. We have been friends for almost TWENTY years and it still breaks my heart when we part. Our story is extraordinary and believe me when I say extraordinary because we have never lived in the same city for more than 3 years. Yet, we are the closest friends to each other. Now that’s special :)

Anyway, here’s the card I am showing you today. Pink galore!!

So Wonderful

Hello all! I’m trying to create cards based on an era. I had so much fun creating this one, I might do another one from another era. Do you recognize the era I’m trying to represent here? Yeppers, it’s the 50’s where people jive with all those funky outfits! Think Grease!

Kitschy Kitschy Ya Ya Da Da!

I like all style of cards. Shabby, CAS, elaborate, as long as it’s not too vintage then I like it. Now I am attempting to create a card that’s a little kitschy. At least I think it’s kitschy according to me hehehe.

Happy Haunting

Hello luvs! It’s a new week so it’s time for a new card ;) This time it’s for The Rubber Buggy DT post. I made a simple Halloween card. I finally gotten the chance to use my Halloween related supplies. I am in love with that web die!

Summer’s End

Hey all! It’s Monday again and I’m feeling a little blue.. It’s nearing the end of August and it means Summer is really gone… Plus, our temporary helpers will go back home to their hometown tomorrow because our live-in helpers are back. I kinda like them a lot and it feels bad letting them go. But I do need to remember that we already do have permanent helpers.

Anyway, as an homage to summer, I made two cards here. Although, I can’t promise I’ll stop making summery card soon ;)

You Make Me Smile

Anyway, here’s a special card I made using one of my new Some Odd Girl stamps images. I absolutely LOVE her!!! Look at her, so cute!! I also love coloring her up. She’s very fashionable :D

For You From Me

Hello everyone! I am back again. Last weekend was so busy! We had a party at home plus on Saturday it was Indonesia’s independence day. I have a card for that day but I forgot to take photo of it. So today I am showing you a card I made for The Rubber Buggy DT. This one looks so sweet and the photo didn’t really pick up the colors perfectly, but it is quite pretty :)

XOXO

Hiya all! It’s a bit quiet and different at home. We usually have 2 permanent live-in helpers at home but every Eid they would come home for a week or two. We did hire a sub-helpers, but they aren’t as good or swift as our helpers. So I had to do some things myself..

Anyway, it’s a nice day today and I thought I’d share this card with you all :D

You’re The Best

Happy Eid Ul-Fitr!!! It’s the day we forgive and move on with a clean slate. I’m so looking forward to meeting my family today and gobble up some delicious food that will be served both at home and at my Uncle’s as we gather up annually during this holiday.

I might be scarce in the next few days, but I do have a card I’d like to share with you today.

Shy Girl

Hey everyone! Wow, I can’t believe I can finally have a breather! My niece was here for almost a week and she’s very clingy to me, so I had limited time crafting or posting. I’m thankful that the holiday is upon us though. Tomorrow until early next week in Indonesia is a holiday. We have Eid Ul-Fitr celebrations here and I’m looking forward to it.

Here’s a card from me today. A cute looking Tilda :)

Hello There!

I told you a few days ago that I would feature a card that I made using image that I colored using colored pencils. Well here it is. I have another one, so be on the look out for that in the coming days.

I really need to color using my pencils more. I use Caran D’Ache Pablo Colored Pencils for this. I love the colors on the set. I have the most complete set and I adore each and every color. Unfortunately, they lack the colors for skin. I use Lyra skintone to color her skin here. The thing is, Lyra Skintone is too chubby for some small images. But coloring TGF images which has large areas to color is great.
