And this is what I came up wtih:
Whole vew of the card. I embossed the background and layered with white cardstock!

Altered project

I am back with an alter project to share. Instead of a card, I made a scene with my stamps. I really like this picture frame and I dont have a picture to put in. So, I decided to create a scene using my new stamps! I really like how it turned out since this is my first try!! Most importantly, I hope the person receives this like it too =)

Mini card with Nina stamp

Um...3 days in a row!!! I think I am back on track? I managed to make a mini card (3"x4") after work. I used a mini stamp which I got when I was in Taiwan a few months ago! Her name is Nina. She is so cute!!! And I realized I havent used my nestabilies for quite a while, so I used my Dahlia in different sizes! I am going to try to get back on my crafting side, hopefully I will be back with all the challenges soon. xxx

Billy and Lilly card

I made this card using one of my favorite characters from my stamps: Billy and Lilly!!! I have always like this stamp because I think they are so cute on the bike. And I dont know why, these 2 little cuties always reminds me of someone!
I used a girl and boy punches to make the borders, and if you look close enough, they have different outfits!!
Not much embellishments for this card as I think the colorful background and the little people speak for the card. I hope you do enjoy this cheerful card!!!!

Thank you for visiting!!! xxx

Feels like forever since I last posted in here. Life has been so busy, but now I have this blogger app on my phone. I guess it doesnt take much for me to post once in a while.
Sharing with you is one Tilda card I made a while ago. I really like the color yellow so I like the touch of yellow ribbon on my card!!!

Noreen is BACK!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone!!!! I am not sure if anyone even comes to my blog anymore after I had been gone for.... 8 months.
NO, I didn't stop card making for that long but just with me moving back home and was busy with my new job.
Let me just tell you more about where I have been and then I will show you some of the work that I have created.
After I got home, I took a rest for a couple of months. Then I got a part time job. Afterwards, I went to interview for flight attendant. And guess what??? I got in!!!! That's my dream since I was a little girl to be a fight attendant!!!! Then, I had a very intensive training for a couple months and now I have been working for 3 months already. I gotta say, my dream has come true but I will keep working hard to acheive more.
I have settled to my job and my life now, so I have more time to get back to my blog and hope to keep in touch with all my blog friends. I have really missed you all!!! =(

I hope you will enjoy looking through my creations, I know that they are not as good as most of you!!! I promise I will be here at least once a week to show you what I have made and also slowly getting back to all the challenges out there. Send me a Hi if you are around....!!!!! See you very soon, maybe in a few days because I am off to India this evening (HK time).
