Birdie Greeting

Hi peeps. Hope you're enjoying a beautiful Saturday in your neck of the wood. I am knee deep in the middle of our house work. We're replacing all the trim and doors, so let just say everything are being moved to the middle of all room.

To say life is a bit cray, cray at the moment is an understatement. The good thing, all this remodeling stuff make us do lots of cleaning out unloved, unneeded stuff.

Anyhooo... to calm my mind in all the craziness, I took the time to make a card. This one I made for Crafter's Companion.

Crafter's Companion supplies: Sheena's A Little Bit Festive
Christmas Visitors, Spectrum Noir: BG1, BG4, BG5, BT1, BT2,
CG1, CG2, EN4, FS4, FS8, TN3

What a pretty bird, right? This card is going to my Caring Hearts Card Drive pile. Have you mail yours or are you still working on yours? I hope you will join me and Jennifer on this card drive! Have a blessed weekend, everyone!

You make Life Sweet

I love this week MFT sketch, so I made another card using the same sketch. I finally play with this cool cup dies! This dies totally make me think of Baskin Robbins Cappuccino Blast! It's one of my favorite drink and the cup looks just like this.

I used an acetate for the cup round lid to make looks like the real cup. :) This card is such a fun card to make. Well, super short post today. I have so much on my to do list!! Enjoy your Thursday, peeps.

MFT Sketch 252

Hi peeps, are you ready for another MFT sketch challenge? Here's the latest sketch to inspire you:

I pretty much stick close to the sketch and used the brick stencil to represent the lines on the sketch.

Seriously, this Poppy cardstock is my favorite red cardstock. It is such a pretty red. For me, this is what a perfect red looks like.

You know what I love about the MFT Challenge team? Besides the fact that they are awesome people, of course. It is how often several of us could think alike. And, yet each card still distinctively, uniquely reflect each individual style. Check out the team creations for this sketch challenge HERE.

Hope you'll play along and join us!

CASEing Kelly Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to CASEing Kelly Blog Hop. A little introduction. A year ago, Kelly Latevola started this special series CASEing Genius where she featured paper crafters that inspired her and create a card based on the featured crafter's projects. 

She featured me back in November 2014 and you can see her post on CASEing me HERE. Kelly has always been so supportive and I love her generous spirit. So, today, as her CASEing Genius series is celebrating its 1st anniversary, Marika Rahtu & Nina Marie has kindly organized this blog hop as a thank you and a surprise for Kelly.

Each of us chose 3 of Kelly's cards and then we got to create a card based on the chosen 3 cards. Here's Kelly's cards that I love:

Hm... You know, how much I love critters, right? This card totally scream cuteness and her coloring is just fantastic! 

As someone who loves clean and simple style, this card totally caught my eyes. The colors, the crisp design... perfection.

And, this one, I just think the coloring is so amazing. Her bright coloring of the owl & the leaves totally make this card pop.


So, for my card, I am inspired by Kelly's CAS style on these cards along with the bright coloring and make this bright, cheerful card that. The layout of the card with a border on the left reflect the design from card #2.

The use of white space is reflection of Kelly's card 1 and 2. And, the rest I think you could see it's totally inspired by card #3. This card is CAS, yet it also filled with so much color & brightness that I think capture the signature style of Kelly's cards.

Kelly, congratulations on CASEing Genius 1st anniversary! Here's to many more and thank you for all the amazing inspirations. From here please hop on to Kelly's blog.
