Lily for 3 challenges...

Wow, I am suprise at myself... this is the 2nd post for today.
Last day of March... March used to maean so much to me...
For my 1st post, please scoll down.

I have another Lily card for you. I told you, you will be seeing a lot of Lily. After that will be Billy.
Anyways, I am entering this card for 3 challenges:
1. Card Patterns: Sketch #57
2. Paper Sundeas #11: Inspiration colors
3. Crafty creations #61: Anything goes...

Here are the sketch and the inspiration picture:

Here are the pictures of my card:

Closer look on Lily..., As usual, I added a lot of stickles on Lily.

Look at Lily's hat. I used the Liquid Applique for the first time and LOVE how it tured out. It is so easy to use and looks so puffy!!!!

Other embellishments... I *heart* lace ribbons, and sparkly pearly brads!!!

Sentiment area. I really really really love this EK success punch. This pattern reminds me of India. And if you REALLY know me.. you will know that India is on my top5 countries to visit list.

Message area.

I hope you like my card and keep stopping by...


Sweet Lily

Hi all, are you having a good week?
What's everyone doing for easter?
I have NO plans yet, I think I will probably end up crafting at home....
As you might have known that I am sooo smitten with Pinkcat Studio's Lilly and Billy... I got a couple of stamp sets a few weeks ago and haven't had a chance to use them.
I have decided to go ahead and unwind my inner Lily.... that said, you will be seeing A LOT more of Lilly and Billy.
Today, I have a Lily card to share.
1. For Fun Challenges: Anything goes (Family friendly)

I didn't follow any sketch this time... so no sketch picture to show.
I was thinking to enter this card for another challenge, BUT, I forgot to use the require technique.... What was I thinking?? I didn't notice until... I finished my card.?!?!?!?$%%$?@?&>%?>@?@?$

Anyways, here are the pictures. Please be patient, there are quite a few pictures...

Sweet Lily from dress up set.

Closer view of Lily with her favourites....

Close shot of the flowers, I mixed up different kinds of flowers to match my theme.

Another closer shot...of the details.

The sentiment, I just LOVE to use pastel chalks with my sentiments... they really spice up the words...

Message area.

Another late night for me again, so I am heading to bed soon. (1:20am) Hope everyone will have a good Wednesday!!!
Thanks for coming.....xxx

Hello, happy Monday!!!
This is going to be a short post, because it 2:22 am. I am supposed to be in bed instead of staying up late to craft.
Anyways, today is going to be something different. You might have noticed from the title already. Instead of a card, I am sharing with you a bookmark that I made.
I am entering this for: A spoon full of sugar, challenge#96

Here you go:

Very sparkly....I have added stickles to the background, her ballon, her hair and her dress.

A closer look of the balloon and the charm. A very girly charm.

A cloer look of this lovely little girl...

The sentiment...."Wish big". I have used the glimmer mist for the first time since I got them. It is so magical... I used it for the sentiment and the hearts. You cant' really see from the pictures....

That's all for today. Thanks for dropping by!!

Welcome to the world.....

Happy weekend, everyone!!!!
This week has not been the greatest week....
Started off very tired, and then I injured my right thigh with hot oil.
Yeah, I know... I shoulda been more careful. I will next time :p
I have a baby card to show you. I know.. out of no reasons, I always make baby cards/ stuff.
This time, this card is for a REAL baby. My dear friend from high school gave birth to a beautiful baby girl a couple weeks ago.
So, the least I could do is make her a card, right?
I am entering this card for 2 challenges:
2. Crafty creations: Challenge 60, Babies

Here you go:

I really like this cute baby stamp set from Pinkcat studio. Also, I love the ribbon.... with all the hearts. So cute!!!! Since the baby is a girl, I decided to bling up the ribbon. Every girl likes diamonds, right?

Closer view of the image. I did some paper piecings with her hat, and her dress. Also, just my new sizzix embossing folder for layering.

Sentiment, oh.... baby girls are sooo precious***

Message area.

Oh... I almost forgot... This week's sketch for OCCSC#8

Thank you very much for visiting.. will see you soon. xxx

For a special friend...

Hellooo!!!! I am baccckkkkk!!!!
It has been a long long 2 weeks... I miss my crafts so much.
You know... I have tons of ideas floating in my head but can't get them "right".
This card that I am going to show you...I started it on Sunday night. Didn't finish until today.
It's like I don't know how to craft anymore... Well, I caught up and will be posting more again. I have to really get my creativy juices going or I get really really stuck.
So, really for some eye candies after sooooo long?
Here we go:

As the title says, this card is for a very special friend. Who? I am not telling... cuz I don't want that person to know. You can take a wild guess though.

Closer view of "my friend", aka Billy. I blinged up his glasses and the ice-cream. In fact, I put my friend's name on the shirt.

Side view of my card and image. I just use my cuttlebug folders for layering, then did some paper piecing, and finally some dew drops.

Sentiment, yeah, "Friends forever."

This is where I will write my message.

Hopefully, my friend won't see this cuz I want this to be a surprise. But I have to post this to show you guys or you would have to wait for some extra days. Well, I hope you like this card and thanks for stopping by!!! :)

Leaving blog for 2 weeks...

Hello, Not a very way to start a morning...
Rainy and WET!!! Well...my cold is getting better by bits.. slowly..
But I will survive... thanks for all the lovely comments.
I am very very super duper sad to tell you that I will be leaving this blog for a long long 2 weeks.
I am a few midterms next week and a big presentation the week after. So, all my crafting time will be spent in the library.
I will see you back here on the weekend of 20th.
See you later.
