Another holiday greeting card. This is a beautiful sketch. I am sure will use this one more than once.

Happy Thanksgiving!!


Made this one for CPS143.

This week is all about colors. I put myself all in the color mood and still want to find some time for some sketches. I feel more comfortable playing with sketches than colors which means I need to play more color challenges. :)  Can't let the colors beat me!!!

Use Jennifer McGuire's butterfly again. Yes. I love it so much and I just can't stop making them.

I always seek for challenges to push myself more and I am really grateful for all the people who came up with those challenges.Thank you all for the hard work. I am really appreciated.

A card for myself?? Hahaha~~ Happy birthday to me!!!

I did it. Last time I pass the deadline so this time I put this challenge as priority. I made it.
It's quite a challenge to put 5 colors together. I am glad I have the change to play along. I went through all the entries and they are just so creative.
Thanks Dawn for this wonderful color challenge.

Get Sketchy GS#14

Made this one for GS#14 . I color the image with markers and finish with some glitter glue. I made this card for some special friends. They are amazing ladies and really make my life colorful. Hope they like it.

Thanks for looking.


Made this one for CPS142. I have lots of birthday cards to made and this sketch just come in handy. This is the first time I try to color a image with pearlescent chalks. I like the soft tune and the little bit shinny. Just a bit , not too much. I hope you can see it in the photo. Somehow Pink and black works very well to me. Black just simply balance out the too girly pink.

I learn how to make the layered butterfly from Jennifer McGuire. So creative and such a unique technique. I would love to try to make a big butterfly using the same technique.

Sparkling toppings and juicy cheery.

Caardvarks Circle birthday card

Made this one for Caardvarks circle card Challenge.

This is my first take. A fish shaker birthday card. I punch out the fishes using Martha Steward Punch from Shrinking paper. It's the same fish you can see beside the circle sentiment. I love the clear bubbles stickers. So cute. Hope you all have a nice weekend.
I will try to make more if I can make it to the deadline Nov. 17th.

I want to make some NON tradition color holiday card. I came up with black/ purple (my new favorite color) and my old time favorite brown. I try to brush out a some glitter on the chandelier to make it a bit shabby. I really like the tune on tune color combo. This card is also very good for mass produce.  Perfect for holiday ~HUH~?! Hope you like it. TFL~

2S4Y Kazans Sketch 39.

Made this one for 2 Sketches 4 You Kazans Sketch 39.This week is involved lots of glitters. This card combines lot my favorite: Favorite color tune, favorite color, favorite shimmery paper, favorite background stamp.....
This not a traditional holiday color and I want to give a bit different for my friends.
I stamp a little ornament underneath the embossed sentiment and I hope you can see it. I like the glitter frame a lot. I used double side type and type around the card then sprinkle glitters on it. It stays pretty well.
