Winter Wonderland

I fell in love with Mama Elephant Winter Wonderland set from the moment I saw it. It took me a while before I got it, but I finally did and I just love the serene, sweet look of this set. And love the font combo on the sentiment.

Here's my first  card using this set. 


I have tons of Christmas cards to make and this set makes it so easy to create gorgeous simple card. I lined the bottom of the card panel with stickles for some soft glitters. This card goes to Caring Hearts Card Drive.

And, peeps this week is the last week to send in your cards for Caring Hearts Card Drive. If you plan to send in your cards, please do so. Our record was roughly 3500 cards. Would be great to break  that record. We appreciate your support and thank you for making this drive successful every single year. Hugs, xo

Simply The Best Pup

If you have followed my blog for a while, you know how much I love puggies. Ever since I moved to the States and considering getting my own dog, I always know I wanted a pug. People would ask me, did I own a pug growing up? Nope. In fact, I don't think I ever see any pug the whole time I grew up in Indonesia.

I do remember seeing one on my uncle's t-shirt. That's about it. Before I got Ollie, who was my 1st pug, I read and learned about them as much as I can. I want to make sure we're compatible. :) Well, that love continue to grow. So far I have been owned by 3 puggies. And, it's contagious! My mom also have a pug.

So, when I thought of doing a photo card, of course like everyone else, I turned to my kid. So, here's Eli on the cover of my photo card.


This pic was taken like a day or two after we got him. He's such an adorable bundle of joy. I miss the time when he's this tiny. He's such a good puppy. I don't gushing much about my puggy, do I? ;)

Let's chat about the card a bit, shall we. I made this card using goodies from i {heart} papers. The patterned paper is from Echo Park Bundle of Joy Girl and the sentiment stamp is from Technique Tuesday Simply You by Ali Edwards set. To stamp on the photo paper, I used Memento Luxe Wedding Dress White

Have you tried, Memento Luxe? They are awesome. The color is so rich and stamp so well. i {heart} papers carry all the colors, so check them out!

Thanks for stopping by here and don't forget only 8 more days left to send in your cards for Caring  Hearts Card Drive. 

And, for a smile enjoy this little lesson about pug. :)

You Are Amazing

Yay, this weekend, I was able made several cards. Finally, have a little bit of mojo going. Most of the cards I made are DT work for an upcoming new releases, a couple for submission and one is for my i {heart} papers post.

I have a few sets that are still new in its package that I figure it's about time I use them. Yep, seriously, the 3 sets I use today were never been inked till just now. The set I used are Avery Elle Oh Yeah, Fill In The Blank and Paper Smooches Briny Blue.  



I love the combo of white with bright blue. This card is pretty simple, but with the bright blue popping against the white background, it's eye catching, no?

Of course, a little bit of glitter couldn't hurt, so I added some sticklers on the fish black stripe. Am pretty happy with the way this card turn out. 

Well, that's it for me today. Can't sit too long. My back was finally healing, then smart me, not paying attention while walking, I forgot there's a step and I went flying and hit the floor hard. I can't remember the last time I had such an epic fall. Totally sprawled on the floor. It was a grand fall. Floor 1, me 0. Yep, the floor wins. :)

May your coming week starts off in a grand way, but good grand way. Cheers....

Merry Christmas Deer

After one day off, it's time to go  back to work. Although, I feel bad for hubby, because his phone didn't stop ringing even though it's his day off as well.  I guess, that's what we call job security. :)

We spent the day pretty much just running errands. We got our front door replaced, which is nice. We've been working on our house pretty much since we got married. It's at the point, where it's almost done, just have to do some little change here and there. Next on the list... is re-doing the roof. Okay, that one is not small, but it's really need to get done.

Anyway, I did take time to read on a book, did lots of snuggling with the doggies, and watch The Voice, of course. Love that show & love Adam Levine. Hah... how could you not? Oh... and yes... I finished a card for i {heart} papers.

I made this card based on CASE Study Challenge #165.


The patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn Into The Woods 6x6 petite paper pack and the deer is from Lawn Fawn Into The Woods set. The sentiment is from Wplus9 Woodland Wreaths set.

Seems like my creative mojo is taking a day off as well. I have plenty of time to create and only managed to do 1. The rest of the time was spent looking at my desk. Seriously need to clean that desk. One of this day, I'll get there. ;)

Moxie Fab Thanks! Blog Hop

** FOR CARING HEARTS CARD DRIVE BLOG HOP PLEASE SCROLL DOWN **



Hi everyone and welcome to the biggest blog hop ever! Many of us were saddened when we found out that Cath is stepping down from running Moxie Fab blog. I mean, for us, Moxie Fab = Cath, right? So, we want Cath to know how special she is by throwing a super huge blog hop party. Yep, she means that much to us.

You should have arrive here from my dear friend, Kimberly Crawford blog. If not, you can always go to Moxie Fab World blog for the complete list of the hop participants. 

Cath, my post today totally dedicated to you! :) As many other paper crafter would agree, you definitely have quite an impact on the paper crafting industry. It won't be the same without you. You have a knack to spot all things fabulous, trendy, you encourage people to try something new, to broaden their creativity all the time, and inspired us through all those moxie fab images.

On a personal note, you are simply a lovely, down to earth person. I am so thankful that this hobby of mine connected me to you and that we got to meet in person. I didn't get to spend long enough time with you, but the short time I had was very lovely. You are so warm, sweet and welcoming. You probably don't even know this,  but when you emailed me last year about being Moxie Fabber of the week, you gave me such a boost of confidence that I needed.

So, thank you for all the inspirations, the encouragement. Simply put....

And....



Yep, I need 2 cards to say it all. :)

On my 1st card, I made the cat by freehand shape the wire into cat shape. Left the cat tail hanging free. So, yes, the tail will wiggle if you touch it. For the second card I venture into water-coloring to create the soft look.

Cath, it definitely won't be the same without you. I will miss your Moxie Fab post. Thank goodness for FB. We'll keep in touch. Enjoy your free time, give those adorable puppies of yours a hug from me and wishing you all the very best in whatever you do.

From here, your next stop is Jaclyn Miller. Thank you so much for stopping by here.
