Happy News

Wow... yesterday was a weird day for me. It was weird to stay at home during week day. It was weird not to do my normal routine things. As much as I am viewing things from positive point of view, I can't help but feeling a bit sad of loosing my job. I can't sit still, so of course I get on with the house cleaning. Dusting, check! Vacuum, check! Mopping the floor, check! Car inspection, check! Cooking? Hm... postpone till today.

Then, I was like... now what? Decided to start browsing and eeekkk... almost give the doggies heart attack when I jumped out and scream! I posted about it yesterday and am still shaking my head in amazement. I am one of the 5 honorable mentions for Paper Crafts Stamping Royalti. That just made my day. People get to vote out of the 5 nominees who will get to join the Stamping Royalti. You can cast your vote HERE.

My card is the typewriter one. I would so ever be grateful if you would vote for me. :) And  thank you for all the sweet tweet, comments, and emails. I really appreciate you all.

After I stop shaking, last night I played with Paper Smooches "Boob Tubes" set. Don't you just love the names? Thank you, Kim for this awesome set. I made 2 cards with this set. Here's the 1st one:


I think this is such a fun card and I am sure after reading the sentiment, hubby can appreciate the pink colors. :) Yay? Nay? Hmmm... he just saw it! It was... ooohh... yay! LOL.

On to the 2nd card. Fun & cheerful. Here how it looks totally closed.


Here how it looks slightly open. Yep, the TV is on the inside of the card. I created a window, did paper piecing, color with markers, and for the eyes I make it white by using Rangers white enamel & black enamel for the pupil.


Well, today I get to keep myself busy by doing a consulting work for a vendor I used to work with. It's only 2-3 days works, but hey... I am happily accepting any opportunities. Things happen for a reason and I am totally surrendering myself to God's plans. He knows what's best for me and I'll just keep the faith. Thank you all for all the support and encouragements. Have a blessed day!
