matryoshka


Whenever I bite into a sweet treat or pass by a bakery, I think of my friend who is a baking goddess. She brings over her divine delights every time she visits. So I thought when she came visiting today (and she came with yummy sticky date pudding and caramel sauce), I would make her something for a change! I used Paper Smooches' 'FOLKal Points' to create this appropriately cute matroyshka card with a popped up pie for her :) 

This is probably one of my more elaborate cards that I rarely make because they take awhile, but I hadn't papercrafted for ages and was dying to make a card, so I indulged a bit ;) Check out all the supplies I used! :)

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!

inchie


As much as I love making cards, sadly I haven't had much time for it lately due to overwhelmingly tiring and busy renovations which explains the big gap of time between postings!

I had a few friends' birthdays coming up, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to make some cards. This is one of them :)

I used a 1.5 inchie square from Inchie Arts. I love inchies! And because my friend loves seahorses (as I do), I once again used Lawn Fawn's seahorse stamp from 'Critters from the Sea'. I like the clean and simple design. I hope my friend likes it too...

Have a great day and I'll catch you soon when I post another birthday card I made :) Just waiting until she receives it because I know she watches this blog ;)
