Fun cards

So happy it's already Friday again. Seems like when we have 4 days workdays, the week seems to flew by real fast. And me.. likey. Weekend is the only time I get to craft a lot and catching up with all my DT projects. Anyway, this weekend I really have to get lots of things done as next weekend I won't get to do any crafting at all cause my li'l brother is visiting!! Yay... yay... yay... :)

Today, I have a couple fun cards. I call them fun cards 'cause I had so much fun making them. I haven't play the Caardvarks challenge for awhile. But, when I saw their current sketch, I knew I want to play along. I combine it with DeNami and Play Date Cafe color challenge, which is to use pink, black, and white. The card itself is a long card, which I really dig the look. Note to self: must do this type of card more often.



When hubby looked at this card, that's the first thing he commented on, the size of the card. I am really happy with the way this card turn out. The pink, black, and white combo is so striking and that turtle.. me lovey. I love turtle. I have many turtles collection. From stuff animal to figurine to key chain, I have it. :) In Chinese & Budhism turtle symbolize longevity & wisdom. Besides that, for me, turtle also somehow reminds me of calmness, grace and it simply makes me happy when I see them.

Next, is my card using Mojo Monday sketch and Lilybean fairy from Pollycrafts that I also enter for Fab 'n Funky anything goes challenge. This is one of my favorite digi stamp. The background patterned paper (except the teal one) is from Woofy World "Chic Vera" set. Of course, I have to have it since it's so pretty and hey... it has my name. LOL. How can I resist??


I have this patterned paper printed several times ready to be used for future projects. And that olive wrinkly ribbon is part of the ribbon sets from PrairieBirdBoutique that I won from Paulina Pretty Pink Posh ribbon giveaway last month. I didn't quite get it what the fuss all about wrinkly ribbon, until I try this one. LOVE it big time! I can't believe it when this ribbon thread in smoothly into the teeny tiny hole in the small tag here. I ended up not using it that way, but I was impress that it went through that tiny hole & I easily pulled it back out with  no damage to the tag whatsoever.

I hope you like both cards. I am slowly gathering some stuff for a giveaway and I think I'll be ready to post it by  next week. So, keep checking back. Enjoy your Friday and thank you all for stopping by. Hugs, Vera.

ETA: Goodness... so excited! Just saw my card being featured at CARDS!! My first one. Sigh... my Friday is so dandy now. Happy... :)
