Friends Are Like Flowers

Hello, hello... My blog is a bit quiet for a bit, isn't it? There's just too many things on the to do list and also, this past weekend, hubby and I were celebrating our anniversary. So, I definitely take the time out to celebrate. :)

Well, I am back today and I want to share this card that was up on Crafter's Companion blog earlier this month. 

Supplis: Crafter's Companion Bebunny Sweet As Rose,
Bebunny Bunches of Love, Embossalicious Embossing Folder - Chevron,

This card totally makes me think of spring with all the pastel colors on the background. 

That's all for me today, peep. Enjoy your Tuesday!

So, if earlier we have theme challenge from SugarPea Designs, now we have fun sketch challenge from My Favorite Things.

Here's the fun sketch:

And, here's a peek of my card. You can see the full card at MFT Card Challenges blog or simply by clicking on the pic below. :)

Can't wait to see your creations!

Celebrate Spring

Aah... spring. My favorite time of the year. The weather is just right. Not too cold, not too hot and flowers every where. Just cross fingers that the mosquitoes not coming out either with all the rain we've been getting lately. :)

Well, with spring here, SugarPea Designs challenge for this week... yep, you guess it, it's all about spring. Create any project that reflect spring. For my card, I went with the cute doggies from Hot Diggity Dog with the house and hill silhouette on the background. 

This card totally reflect how we enjoy spring at our home. Spring is the time of the year where I can sit outside with the dogs on the backyard and not melting from the heat. Especially, Abby, she's my outdoorsy girl. She loves running around the backyard, sunbathing on the grass and checking out the birds, squirrel, etc.

I don't let my dogs outside without supervision. I am very protective mommy to my doggies, so spring temperature is nice as we can all stay outside longer.

Hope you'll play along with this fun challenge and in a couple hours I'll be back with more fun challenge. :)

Bundle of Joy

Hi peep. Today, I have an adorable card featuring Crafter's Companion Bebunny Bundle of Joy to share with you.

Supplies: Bebunny Bundle of Joy, Spectrum Noir
Blendable Colored Pencil 23, 34, 43, 44, 45, 61, 62, 65, 108, 113

I couldn't resist this set, so even though I don't need baby card, I just have to make one. Besides, I know my SIL, Gina could always use this kind of card for her bakery delivery.

So, with this card, I have accomplished trying out all the Spectrum Noir collection. From their alcohol markers to their watercolor marker and now their blendable colored pencil. Between the 3, have to admit, my favorite so far is their Spectrum Aqua.

Their colored pencils are awesome. I mean as far as color selection, it's crazy awesome. There are 5 sets and each set has 24 color. I just prefer the Spectrum Aqua at the moment because it take less time to color the whole image. And, when you're short in time, quick & fast is important.

That's it for me today. May your day be filled with cuteness. :) Cheers...

Dog vs Cat

I am an animal lover in general. But, if you ask me whether I am a cat person or dog person, no doubt about it I am very much a dog person. I grew up having dogs all my life, so cat just never enter the equation, since most of my dogs weren't cat friendly. 

My pugs are probably the most cat friendly dogs I have. When my friend, Karen used to watch Ollie, she pretty much just ignore the cat and it irritated the cat, that I remember laughing hearing the story how her cat out of the blue just smacked on Ollie's head to get reaction from her. Eli, he thinks everyone is a play mate.

Now, Abby (not a pug), would go crazy and want to chase cat if she sees one. She went crazy when she saw a cat walked on our fence.

With that said, I surprise myself with how much I play with the cat stamps from My Favorite Thing I Knead You set.  

Hah... The cats in this set are so sweet & adorable, that I can't resist using this set quite a bit. I love animal sets with cute smiling face. Never ever thought I'd love a cat stamp set. This set is a first. 

So, are you a cat or a dog lover? Does it influence your stamp choice? Well, that's my question for the day. I hope you have a fantastic Friday. :)

MFT Sketch 220

Hi all. Are you ready for a new MFT sketch challenge? It's a fun one.

I actually make 2 cards for this sketch. Here's a peek of the 1st card.

You can see the full card on MFT Card Challenge blog. Check it out will you and come play with us. :) Looking forward to seeing your creations. Now, here's my second card.

This month, my blog is definitely filled with lots of dog, cats & bunnies, isn't it? And, I just love it. Between SugarPea and My Favorite Things new sets for March, I am definitely in craft heaven. In my opinion, you can never have too many critter sets. The more the merrier.

Well,  that's all for me today. Hope your Wednesday is awesome. Cheers!

Bunches of Love

Yay... thank goodness it's weekend. I love weekend like I love cheesecake. :)

For today, I want to share this sweet card that I made for Crafter's Companion. I love their Bebunny collection.

Supplies: Crafter's Companion Bebunny Floral Bunches of Love, 
Spectrum Aqua: Tan, Charcoal, Begonia, Sunflower, Scarlet,
Bud Green, Aquamarine, Magenta, Yellow

This is my first time playing with Spectrum Aqua and they're a blast to play with. Love their pretty colors. I simply brush the color onto my stamping block and use that as my palette. Add a bit of water, swirl, swirl, brush the color to the image and done. Granted, I still need lots and lot of practice. I am not a watercolor master or anything like that. Not even close. But, I do enjoy the learning process. :)

Well, I have loads of task for today, so that's all for me for today. Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!

Home Sweet Home
