I love scheduled posts! Don't you? :)

I get really swamped during the weekdays and nights that I sometimes don't have the time to make cards, photograph them, edit them and blog about them. I would love to do that every night but well, we all have things to do that we just have to do, right? :)

I made this card using a combination of stamps from Inkadinkado, PTI and Hero Arts :) I also sprayed Glimmer mist on it to give it more ooomph. I think the blings helped too.

Gosh, it's December already! Time does flies. I still remember the start of 2009 and now it's already coming to a close and 2010 is right at the door. Man, sometimes I really wish that time can move slower....

A card I had 'problems' with ....

Whenever someone requests for a 'masculine-themed' card, I would spend the longest time ever thinking of how to make one.... besides colours, what else can I do to make a card more 'masculine'?

Sweet-looking, vintage, cute.... those are 'easier' to make.... but masculine? Hmmmmm...... I need to take a class on how to make masculine-looking cards :P

Here's a card I made that is supposed to be masculine... lol... do you think it 'exudes' masculinity? :P

Wishing you Showers of Books!!

My friend wanted a card for her sister who loves books :) The sentiment initially says 'Wishing you Showers of Blessings' but I left out the word 'blessings' and hand-wrote the word 'books' instead :) My friend said her sister would love that so, I went with her request :)

I made this card to take part in Dawn's Colour Challenge :) What do you think? :)

Time.... I need time :)

I understand perfectly when another cardmaker says that sometimes, making the card is 'easy'.... it's the photographing, editing and then blogging and posting it that takes the bulk of the time... :) I agree.

Sometimes, time is really not in our favour and we might not have the luxury of time to do all the things we want to do :) But I am also glad that sometimes, it is in times when we seem to lack time that we 'find' the time to complete things we set out to do.... Am I confusing anyone yet?

I don't know.... I just feel that way sometimes :)

Anyway, I made some cards as a request from my friends and I have edited them and am going to blog and put them to post at scheduled times :P Love the scheduled post option! :)

Here's a card a friend requested for her friend who loves cycling :)

Thanks so Much!

There have been some changes in my workplace lately. My head of department recently resigned and left. Well, as much as I have my grouses against him sometimes and yes, we do butt heads (I am not and can never be a 'yes-lady')... but he is overall, a good boss. He gave me a chance eventhough I had no experience in our current line of work and he gave me the flexibility and confidence to get to where I am. I know there's still so much more to achieve but he definitely did give us a good base.

I do miss his presence in the office. He will come by our workstations once in a while for a chat or to have some snacks.. haha... and he's the one who 'almost' all the time decides where to go for lunch.... sigh....

But I wish him all the best in his future undertakings. He will do his best to lead a new department in his new workplace.... :)

Here's a close-up of the card I made for him..

Merry & Bright

I made this Christmas card in less than 30 mins.... well, it could have been faster but the Carl puncher I have gave me problems... am going to get an EK one, I think they are of better quality... :P  But much pricier, so nevermind.... I think I'll live with this.... until next month? LOL... I love tools and acrylic stamps and all things related to cardmaking (and scrapbooking)! :P

I think I'm going to make a bunch of this card to give out :)

Code : HH0016

Do you think people will like receiving this? :)

Oh, this I love :)

I know I have been missing in blog-o-land for a while.... pardon me. I believe this cycle of MIA (missing-in-action) will happen periodically. If I can help it, I would want to make and post a card a day but due to workload and commitments, I sometimes will have to 'disappear' for a while. But I do try to look at your blogs and leave a comment or two.... most times I just lurk, but I am around. I miss you as much or more than you miss me :)

Ok, here's a piece of good news (for me, anyways :P). I made a card to enter a contest in a LSS last month and I'm so blessed to be chosen as one of their two winners!!! The challenge was to create a card that uses pink as the predominant colour.

Here's my card .... and I'm biased but I love it! :P

Friends to the end

This is another card I made for M's 3rd Sketch Challenge :) Savitri said that I may have jeopardize my changes to get my last card picked cos I showed my kitty's picture in the same post as the card and M was oogling at that more than my card so, I had to do something, right? LOL

Well, actually I was hoping to use this owl stamp for the longest time but I kept having no idea on what to do with it.... and looking at 365 Cards' Day 250 challenge, I decided to combine M's sketch and 365 Cards' Challenge. How am I doing it? eh-hmmmm, by being a little rebel :P

M, don't worry, I didn't rebel on your sketch... :P

I'm rebelling on 365 Cards' challenge... hehe.... the challenge is to create a card inspired by Mondrian's art. I googled Mondrian and wow, his art is simple yet interesting :) So, I didn't use his 'sketches' but instead used his colours on my card :)

See the red, yellow and blue? That's Mondrian-inspired :) Rebelling? Erm, not too much I hope... Gloria should still be the resident rebel, I wouldn't dare take that 'glory' away from her... LOL

Wishing you Showers of Books!!

This is for another friend whose sister love books! Part of the sentiment is from PTI's Scattered Showers set.... I left out the word 'blessings' and replaced it with handwritten 'books' cos my friend said her sister would love that! :) The owl is from Sassafrass Lass.... I love combining stamps from different sets. They make things more special, don't you think?

I added some Stickles on the polka dots too and glossy accents as well. Just for added dimensions. I love LOVE love dimensions :)

Happy Belated Thanksgiving to all those who celebrates! :)

M's Sketch Challenge #3

I made it into Top 10 for M's 2nd Sketch Challenge! :D

And now, on to her 3rd Challenge! :) These days, I've been kinda 'tied' up with things and have not participated in as many challenges as I would love too but I will try not to miss M's challenges :) Really have to up my game and participate more.

Here's my card for M's challenge :

Code : HH0015

And here's the reason why I've been missing so much! :)

Hubby's a kitty person.... I, well, love dogs a little bit more but cats are easier to keep a little bit since they toilet-train quite well :)

He's been a cutie... kinda agressive and hyper-active but I think it's just cos he's a little kitty. But I want him to be hyper... fun watching him dashing here and there! :P
