Mojo Monday 131 with 2 cards

This one is made for inviting a friend for coffee. I love the hearts on the mug and the polka dot paper. Super cute!!

This one is a wedding card. I really like this paper and this one is made for a male friend. Instead using pink I use a gold paper.When I first started, I actually had hard time to make a card and after I get the first one done. I am in love with this sketch and I have to make another one.

I made both cards using sketch of Mojo Monday 131. TFL~

Happy St. Patrick's day

I made this card for Jennifer McGuire's first Kid's card drive. Just realized this one can be a St. Patrick's day card or by changing the color, this can be a wedding card as well. 

They are spellbinders hears in three different color and sizes and I use foam type to stack them up.

Impress Go Green!!

 I made this coaster set for a Go green! challenge host by a local stamp store, Impress Rubber stamp in Seattle. I used Cuttlebug A2 Emboss Folder case(See below) which most of time we might just throe away. I used it as acetate. Any of the flat plastic such as dies case, fruit container, stickers cover.......all would work. I had so much fun. Give it a try and hope you like it, too. TFL~

Two Challenges, Caardvarks and Moxie Fab World

Hi, happy weekend!! Hope all your weekend is going well.
Made this one for Caardvarks Photo Inspiration Challenge

This photo is absolutely beautiful. SO crisp and clean. So bright. I try to keep the card as simple as possible.

I use Buds and Stems to create the background. Use StazOn and stamp Butterfly from Antique Engravings on acetate and cut out. Stamp the sentiment and glue the butterfly and antenna using Glossy accents. Distress the edge and tie the ribbon. Attach the card on white card base which is gently rub the edge with the same green color.   Thanks for looking and have a nice weekend.
