CNY

Gong Xi Fa Cai! Happy Lunar New Year! May the Year of the Dragon bring you many blessings! 

I am a Dragon! :)

Tonight I'm having steamboat with my family. I made these paper dolls - stamped from My Cute Stamps, coloured with copics and paper pieced with Basic Grey's 'Lauderdale'.


Then I popped them up with dimensionals on these simple red packets (ang pow) I created. It is no fun having to give money (instead of once receiving it) but I had fun doing this!



Until next time, thanks for visiting :)

cards

Hey there, remember me? ;) I hope 2012 is treating you well! 

This blog has been sorely neglected, but it's one of my resolutions to post in it more regularly which means cardmaking more regularly too. I also want to start some scrapbooking especially to preserve some memories of my rapidly growing and ever changing boys as well as being able to keep the majority of my pretty supplies ;) 

In other papercrafting news, I subscribed to the awesome Studio Calico monthly kit and all the gorgeous pieces you get in those bags are inspiring! I have yet to make a dent in any kit. I've only nibbled at a few...

Here's a mini card I made. Lawn fawn has the cutest images:




Here's a few of the many Christmas cards I made:






And here's another card I made for my sister for her birthday :) I used Jennifer McGuire's chevron technique and Crate Paper's lovely 'Paper Heart' collection. It took me ages, but I like the result. The cute bear is from Paper Smooches :)



I hope all these cards will somewhat make up for my absence ;) Thanks for stopping by, I'll post again soon...:)
