As you are reading this, I am on my way to Singapore. Clare will be performing Mahler Symphony 8 with the orchestra at The Esplanade Concert Hall. I also have another reason to go back this time, my throat has been feeling very uncomfortable for weeks, since I trusted Singapore's medical system more, I am doing an upper endoscopy to find out what's wrong with my throat, it is very worrisome and I do need your prayers my friend! Thank you!

MFT Color Challenge 24

The Challenge:

It took me quite a while in my craft room, trying to figure out what I want to do with this color palette, I just can't think of anything for days.... and then I decided that I have lost my mojo and would like to skip this time .

well, sometimes thing just happened, out of a sudden, the idea come to my mind and I hurry to my craft room to put it into action....

putting my new favorite die from MFT into action as well....

the flower is from one of the old MFT die I have

the peek-a-boo die for the background is also one of my favorite MFT die, just like the flower die, I used them both quite a bit

I am happy with this card, how about you?

The Challenge:

PTI Make it Monday #216 ~ Adding Colors to Cover Plates

This week MIM is really fun, Laura always have the best idea, she shows us how to add colors to the cover plate.....

I am using the cover plate from PTI market mini kit Garden Gild Kit

I especially love the soft background and want to keep that soft tone, so I color the bottom part of the floral in pastel.

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 268 ~ Let's go Nautical

This week at

We have a new DT

Please hop over to CCCB and welcome our new DT

And the theme for this week set by Samra is....

Let's go Nautical

this gotta be the fastest card I ever made...

well, I was making my blog post and realized that the project I intended for this week doesn't look so good, and it was less than 2 hours before this post should go online, so I ran into my craft room, found a ready cut cover plate in white (I used the cut out stripes for another project last week), and found the red anchor, another piece intended for other project but end up in the bin

layered them on a piece of blue denim patterned paper, stamp the sentiment, tada.... all done

now hop over to 

and join in the fun
