Halloween Cards Part 2

I am back with my second batch of Halloween cards. I am telling you, this year I made an effort to make a batch of all one of a kind cards. The paper packs and graphics might be the same but the designs are all different :)

Halloween Cards Part 1

Happy Halloween everyone! Wow, it has been a while.. But fear not, I have not yet finished crafting. I’m gonna keep this one short, showcasing a few of my Halloween cards. I actually made two other but I gave it away to my friend before I got to photograph them.

Hello! Aloha!

Good morning everyone! Hubby took me and my niece swimming yesterday. It was such a lovely day since it seems we owned the place since nobody was there except us! Heehee. I was totally knackered to bits but I think I am a little fitter right now ;)

I’ve been having fun creating cards with summer images. I hope you don’t mind hehe, these images  make me happy and as I said before, place where I live always have a tropical weather :)

Mermaid Tilda

Hello everybody! Oh it has been a lovely weekend! I had a great time with my family, so fun! And now I am back with a new card to share with you all.

I am in love with this image, although I guess when I bought it I didn’t quite factor in the season haha. But, I am never a ‘seasonal cardmaker’ anyway, so I can make any cards I want. And that’s including this one. You might not see it clearly, but there is an acetate that’s framing her.. I tried to make her like underwater and the acetate was the window. hehe. I kinda mess up the hair though… I hate it when I do that, but I already colored the whole body and scales so I figure ah well I’ll just run with it. hehe.

Flutterby

I am leaving for Bandung today, just a quick weekend getaway with my family. I am really excited and I know this is something that everyone is looking forward to and also needed so badly. Hehe.

Anyway, I’ve been up since 5, packed, showered and had breakfast all by 7 o’clock. So what do I do to kill the time? Finish up my cards hahhaa.

Okay, here is a simple surprisingly no patterned or digi paper *GASP!* at all card.

Just Saying Hello!

I have been wanting to post since a couple of days ago, but hubby got sick on and off since weekend so I hadn’t had the time to blog.

Anyways, how is your day? I just bought a heating tool. I think I may have to learn how to use it properly though, since my embossed powder didn’t go as it was suppose to. Perhaps it’s just the powder? I know people prefer Zing, but as my ‘starter set’ I bought Martha Stewart three-set one. Well anyway, I’ve been wanting a heat tool for a while now so I’m pretty happy :)

Here’s what I got to share with you today.

Never More Than A Thought Away

How was your Word Cardmaking Day celebration? Did you do many cards? I did manage to make some cards! Thank goodness for hybrid crafting! I can whip something really easily and fast and looks like it’s been done for hours ;)

Last Friday was my last day doing morning shows on my radio. It has been an great excellent run for two years and I am both happy and relieved to end it. Not to worry, I will still be around doing the afternoon shows :) Anyway, I am so happy that now I will have more time for myself and my family. Usually I get up at 4 in the morning and went to work and stuff and I don’t get home until about 7 at night. Right now, as I am taking a break for a while, I will have time to sleep in and do more stuff like making lunch for hubby hehe. Anyway, I created this card for those who were involved in the morning show. I might not see them as much anymore, but they are never more than a thought away.

2011 World Cardmaking Day

NEW_WCMD_2009

Happy World Cardmaking Day to all cardmakers out there! This is my first time participating in the blog tour. I hope you are all having fun :)

I remember making cards since I was a little girl. When I was in college I would make them with wrapping papers, I have not yet discovered the wonders of scrapbook patterned papers hehe. Then since I’m always a tech geek, I discovered digital scrapbooking. It didn’t take me long to try out hybrid scrapbooking and crafting. It has been more than a year since I’ve exclusively made cards and it really makes me happy. Some of the finished cards I give away and some of them I keep. I love the look on people’s faces when they know they were given a handmade card. I think their joy of receiving handmade cards exceed the joy of getting the actual gift hehe.

I have a couple of cards lining up to be posted and I don’t know which one I’d like to showcase today, but I found this one to have a perfect sentiment for today. I am sending you all cardmakers out there, around the world, a warm Happy World Cardmaking Day wishes. Keep creating, keep being creative and keep making the world a better place -- one card at a time ;)
