Friends in countries where there is winter keep on putting up statuses in facebook that they’re freezing so I made several cards to send them and hopefully warm their hearts for a minute or two.
a sunshiny card to keep the chill away
I just used a free colored digistamp for this and papers from national bookstore. The clouds are hand-drawn and manually embossed using a provocraft folder and a rolling pin since I don’t have an embossing machine yet.
Hope my little card made you smile today and made you think of happy memories of summer. Have a great day everyone!
I’m in dire need of coloring markers coz the one I have here is the Stabilo Power Markers and it’s so difficult to work with. It streaks and bleeds a lot too. 😦 Just look at this!

After A LOT of research from crafters’ blogs my search narrowed to two top markers. Copic Markers and Shinhan Twin Touch markers. Copics cost an arm and a leg and a few extra pounds to top but it’s the best there is in coloring. They say the tip is like a little brush so it’s easy to manage. Twin Touch on the other hand costs almost 75% less than Copics but it’s not as great.
A few days ago my husband moved my crafting table (again) near my computer table to avoid cluttering so I had to re-organize my papers and tools yet again. I think I was already moved 5 times (against my will) but so far this is the best spot! 🙂
I found a small box of cards that I made two months ago when I was still starting and here are some of them. Please feel free to comment! 🙂
My 8 year old daughter went to a scrapbooking workshop this afternoon and I was happy to meet two moms present who are also into paper crafts. We talked about nothing but paper while our kids got busy and exchanged numbers promising to call each other and meet for coffee to plan a paper craft date. I got so excited that right after coming home I made some cards for Mother’s Day to share with you all. By the way I still don’t have distress ink so what I used was poster color mixed with a teeny bit of water to “loosen” the consistency. This green and pink card was the first one I made. What do you think of this? It’s so easy to make.
Second card is my daughter’s personal favorite. Asked why she likes it, she replied “Because of the chick. Everybody like chicks!” Err, its a bird sweetheart. LOL
