another fluffy flower

Code : AAL0032

Another card with the fluffy paper flowers.... I was trying to put them in an envelope earlier... haha.. was having a bit of a problem stuffing them in but I manage to put them in nicely after a few tries :)

Am in the process of making more cards to send out... hope I won't be too late in sending them out... Ok.. it's almost 2 am now. I think I better get to bed and finish up on the cards later today. I love staying up at night cos it's nice and cooling! Afternoons are just too hot, this part of the world... it was scorching today which makes it the perfect laundry day.... but because of the humidity, I'm all hot and sticky! yuck...

Thank God for air-conditioning.. am gonna wrap myself up under the blankie now.... 
Nights :)

Code : AAL0031

Loving these paper flowers I learned to make :) I'm going to be making a bunch of Valentine's card for people I know :) Maybe mini cards... maybe the standard sized ones.. I'm not sure yet :)

I'm getting kinda sleepy... Been feeling very lethargic again... lethargy spells that comes and goes... Hope that by next week, I'll be all skippy and energetic again :P

Be my Valentine

Code : AAL0030

This is another upside down umbrella card :) and this concludes all the designs I will be having for this year's Valentine's Day. You can start ordering the cards now so that I can make reproduce the ones you want as I only made 1 piece each so far :)

I've been having fun making Valentine's day cards so far... am going back to the 'usual' routine of making birthday, thank you and cards for other occasions :)

Hope you've been having fun too :)

upside down umbrella

Code : AAL0029

An overturned umbrella with lotsa hearts in it.... for your valentine :)

I was so happy when I thought of how I wanted to use my umbrella to contain the hearts.. when the idea popped into my mind.. There's actually glimmer mist on the card but I doubt you can see it from the photo. It's really quite pretty when it glitters ever so slightly :)

Seen any Valentine's day cards that you like? You can order now.... just email me :)

buried in work & reading....

Code : AAL0028

It's Sunday again... the weekend seems to always past fleetingly.... Been burying myself in work and then in reading Eclipse as well. It's hard to tear myself away from the book to get some work done. I've gotten so lazy to even exercise... sigh... losing all my muscle mass. It's all skin and bones now :(

The background patterned is hand-stamped. Loving the new PTI stamp set... :) I love stamp sets that allow me to make my own 'patterned' paper... LOL. Of course, I still buy a lot of patterned papers... which is a problem... cos I hoard them all.. sigh... I really need to take them out and use soon. But I love them so much I want to keep them.. notice the dilemma? :P

Gonna get buried in my book again.... I think I'll be moving on to Breaking Dawn sometime next week.. sigh... then I will have 'withdrawal syndrome' because there's no more books after the 4th one... help? ~~~

Crazy cat morning

Code : AAL0027

Happy Saturday morning, people!

Well, it's not so early anymore but hey, it's still technically morning :P Was having a bit of cat trouble earlier..... My cat has been quite a problem lately.... Very temperamental and biting us a lot. I never used to have scars on my hands but I do now. He gets really fierce too. I wonder what's his problem. He gets wet food sometimes, has a nice cozy place to stay and we really love hugging him... it's just he who doesn't want to be hugged :( I do hope someone can teach us what to do... make him stop biting.

Anyway, here's another one of my Valentine's Day cards :) Another one or two more to go, I think.... and then there's some designs that I want to repeat... :)

Kitty Love

Code : AAL0026

I need to make more puppy cards ya? I think I have a few kitty ones up but only 1 with the puppy :)

I was chatting with my colleague the other day and told her about scheduled posting and how it made blogging 'easier' sometimes :) At least I can blog in the middle of the night and set it to post much later... or write a few blogs when I've got a little more time on my hands and then have them post as and when I want them to?

She said she's going to try it out ... I hope it helps her too :)

Code : AAL0025

Ooopss.... I just realized that this post was posted up with nothing written on it :P Sorry Amy, for the quiet post... Indeed it was... Hope you check back... :)

I think I posted it without writing anything cos I forgot about it. You see, this was on scheduled posting too.... I think I must have uploaded the pictures and forgot about the 'writing' part, thinking that I'll do it later... and ... I... forgot :P

I've been preoccupied with New Moon. Didn't know a romance story book can keep me glued to it and not wanting to let go until I am finish with it. I never liked romance books.... due to my 'bad' experience with one years ago... It was all mushy and well, TOO mushy. I thought all romance story books are like that and swore them off. I was more into adventure, mystery, ancient histories kinda books anyway.... so, of course I had my apprehension about Twilight and the whole series.... To my surprise, they are quite good :) I am at the last few pages of New Moon now... gonna start Eclipse real soon...

*gasp* I thought I could control myself and put down the book when needed but I guess not! :P

All the cards you see posted this week and end of last week were made way earlier :P Thank God for scheduled post! :P

Hey there, sweetheart

Code : AAL0024

The 'patterned' papers are stamped with my PTI stamps, which were detained by the customs sometime back :P I'm glad, eventhough it was a troublesome affair to call them, drive an hour to reach the customs, got asked to go from counter to counter....  I finally got my stamps. And they all arrived safely :)

Well, my heart smiles when the package was opened... like how it smiles when I receive snail mails. I reminisce the times when I ran out of the house to check the postbox each time I hear the postman pass by... and how happy I was whenever I find a letter with my name on it :) Those were the days of pen-pals :) 

I wonder if people nowadays still have pen-pals....

Hugs & Kisses

Code : AAL0023

I think my friends like the puppy card more than they like the kitty ones... LOL.... I think I'm gonna make more of that then :) Have some more, flowery doodads cards waiting to be posted... in the coming days...

Don't you think this kitty is cute? I think it is... I even glossed up the heart and rose on the card :)


A hug with a fold in the middle ;)

Code : AAL0022

A friend of mine is rushing me to post up all the pictures of the Valentine Cards I made... :P I was thinking of posting one a day and well, I guess I'll never have ALL the pictures to post up cos I will still be making more even after I posted up all that I've made now.... cos, there's no such thing as a 'collection', I guess... well, not for me? :P

So, what I *can* do is to post a card a day... I think I'll run out of cards to post by next week :P Then I'll have to make more... which is good :)

Here's sending you a hug with a fold in the middle :)

4 little hedgehogs

Code : AAL0021

Don't you think these 4 little hedgehogs are just adorable?

Taking a break from the PTI stamps for a while and am using PB stamps :) Love them both.... I am going to take a break.... am feeling tired.. these lethargy spells comes and goes, no?

Have a great day!

Love you

Made this card a few days ago.... I still have about 8 cards that I have not posted the pictures up yet... :P

I will probably post a blog a day but I might not have anything interesting to say... Just pictures... what say you? And guess what? I'm still reading Twilight... I know... superbly slow, right? But I always seem to have something else to do?

I am busy busy lady.... :P

Here's my card.... like it?

PTI Valentine

Code : AAL0019

I think a lot of my Valentine cards are made with PTI stamp sets :D I just got this set from PTI (from the parcel that had me going all the way to KLIA to clear customs... *grumble*)... well, the background image is from the new stamp set... the ones on the hearts are from the older set....

Random thought : Do you love watching House? CSI? Leverage? Chuck? hehehe.... these are just a few of my favourite shows. What's your favourite shows?


Love you forever

Code : AAL0018

Another Valentine Card.... you know, I actually have quite a few made but I did not have the time to post it all up yet... The card-making is one part, the photo-taking, editing and blogging is another part of this :) Not that I don't like the process.. I love it. I just wish I have more time for all of this, that's all...

Going to hit the sack now... it's way past midnight over here already (what's new..haha)

Code : AAL0017

Here's another Valentine card..... You'll be seeing lotsa this on my blog until the actual day, I suppose ;P
I'll take a break from it once in a while but I'm kinda having fun with my new PTI stamp sets (well, they are not very new.... they were supposed to arrive much earlier but was detained by customs).

My best friend came over with her husband to play with Tinsel today :) We went for Japanese before coming over to my place. Tinsel was in a cranky mood tonight, though. Keep wanting to bite people. Got smacked a few times by me in front of my friends... :P Well, he can't bite my friends, right?

Be mine

About slightly more than a month from now, there's going to be 2 occasions to celebrate for the Chinese in Malaysia :) This year, Chinese New Year falls on 14th February which is also Valentine's Day!

What a coincidence, right?

Anyway, I've started making some Valentine's Day cards for sale.... there's more that I will update over the course of the days and oh, I did upload a blog on a card set about a week or so ago? Those can be Valentine Day cards too (hugs & kisses... that sorta things) :)

Here's one for tonight.... be mine :)

Code : AAL0016

Oh, you can click under 'Cards-All About Love' on the left sidebar, and that'll bring you to all related cards too :) Happy browsing! :)

There's almost nothing I love more in the world than to receive snail mail.... and of course, if it's an RAK, it  makes it even more special :)

And this week, I had 2 RAK :) One from dear Cindy and the other from dear ~Amy~ all the way from the US. I 'met' both of them through our common love of card-making and blogging and I am very, very fortunate to 'know' them. Isn't it wonderful to make friends online? Friends you have not yet met physically and our way of communication is through blogs & emails? :)

From Cindy

Christmas goodies from Cindy's RAK

Amy's fabulous card! :)

Thank you, sistas! I truly treasure the both of you... and I hope to make more friends to share RAKs with :)

Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge #21

There's a new Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge.... come to think of it, I haven't really joined any challenges at all for the past month or so... my bad. But thank you still for coming back to check on my blog (those of you who does anyway, appreciate it very, very much! :) ).

This time round, Dawn's choice of colours are so soft and sweet.... I almost am not sure how to match them! :) 

Here's my take on it.... I added some prisma glitter on the soft yellow colour (I coloured it with Copic) on the butterfly's wings.... I hope that's ok :)

Starbucks, Changi Airport

Am currently sitting in Starbucks, Changi Airport with my current favourite drink (Caramel Macchiato), a book (still reading Twilight), my Mac and free wireless connection :D

It all equals bliss.... of course, it would have been a whole lot better if hubby is with me...

I know it's the first day of the new year and all but I had to come down to SG to get some stuffs done, which I'm more than happy to do so :)  Woke up at blinking 430 am to get ready, out of the house at 530 am (a BIG TQ shout-out to Hubby for driving me), reached the airport at 630 am for check-in and waited for my flight.... Reached SG at 845 am and the day started (!)  :)

Was walking in Raffles Place (i think) and saw a craft shop but darn, it was not opened... eventhough the sign says that they're open until 600 pm today... Liar... the shop was dark and I tried walking back there after 15 mins but it was still dark :( 

So sad... it would have made my day if I could go in and browse the craft selections that they have available.... well, maybe next time....

I shall continue my wait for my flight.... man, life is good when there's a good book, a hot cup of coffee and free internet! :P

Here's leaving you with a picture of my model-wannabe cat, Tinsel :P

cute, right?
