Born to be Free

Hi peeps.. its been a lazy week for me lol. Sleeping and napping like never before ha! I have tried to make some Christmas but no mojo came, here and there, but no completed cards till today! ๐Ÿ™‚

I was so thrilled to have met with all the KL bloggie friends and crafters at our LSS Papier Love, Members Day. I was truly thrilled to meet with Jessie, Sharm, Amelia, ย Shirl, Evelin, Janet K, Nini, Paylin, Cennic, Jessica, and so many more. Missing you Cindy :).. It was fun, warm, and some of us ended the day with coffee :). Most, I have met for the first time. So, it was really kinda exciting for me . I am still smiling :D.

Today, I am sharing with you a card that I finally completed, inspired by the works of Sharm and Evelin at Cardabilities pretty Sketch 14.. ย I love all the elements used today. I got to take out my stamps and play (Kaiser – birdcage, Wplus9 & Pti – damask birdie, PTI – leaves and those gorgeous prima blooms. The fabbie paper is from Mariposa (finally, I used this ๐Ÿ™‚ ). It has been really fun making this! ๐Ÿ˜€

This card is again dedicated to myself. I am going through transition of motivating myself to be free, to embrace a life that is more fulfilling (am workaholic by nature ha!) yet relaxing. Do you find it hard to relax.. I do find it difficult sometimes. I always feel my day is productive, if I have achieve a list of tasks for the day .. . :p… Old habits die hard.. hehehe

Happy Halloween all !!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ hugs………. xxx

Happy Birthday

Hi peeps..

Just a quick post to share with you the card that I had made for my ex boss.. A really simple one. Lots of stamping. I hope he likes this coz he keep asking me why I put the buttons there.. we finally agreed that this is a keepsake in the event he needs an emergency button lol.. okie.. will share more in a bit … Have a great day ahead. ๐Ÿ˜€

Pink Masculine Card?

yeap.. that is the challenge at our LSS, Smidapaper. Hi peeps.. Happy day! Just to share a pink, red and brown ย masculine card.

Can you spot the pink.. the background text is pink, car is pink, button is pink, and all around distress pink. Does this count for a pink masculine card.. you be the judge hahaha!.. But I sure had fun creating this piece though. A simple piece, started with the sentiment.. how true it is… I live in the suburb of Kuala Lumpur, capital city of Malaysia, and we are practically have to go through massive jams daily during peak hours.. non peak – traffic is growing steadily.. quite a stress driving in KL, I can tell you!

Ok, peeps – a very quick post, coz I am going to make coconut candy now for ex boss birthday gathering tonight. My colleague has been asking me to make them something when I was still working, but just couldnt muster the energy and time. Now that I have resigned, I can make something, irony aint it.. lol. I love my colleagues, they have been a wonderful bunch, though I have only worked there for about 2 mths, it feels like a long time, cos.. we all had a great working relationship..

Bye for now.. thanks for always dropping. Your comments always put a smile on my face and make my days brighter.. for that I truly treasure. Thanks so much .. hugs.. xxx

Life is full of Magical Moments

Happy Diwali

Hi peeps… ย I am sharing a card I made today. This card took me forever. I started a week ago, but feeling tired and out of mojo. My first day free again from corporate work and I spent the day sleeping and made myself wake up and complete this card, after I saw this beautiful Diwali inspiration from talentedย Ujjwal.

I had decided to complete this today cos this card is for me to send out to friends celebrating Diwali early next month. Diwali or more popularly known as Deepavali is the festival of light, good triumph over evil, celebrated by the Hindu community in Malaysia. My in laws celebrates it too:).

I heart this gorgeous paper from Bo Bunny and teamed it with WPlus9 Magical Moments and the design was inspired by 2S4Y sketch 64. This is not the traditional Diwali card, but I love all the elements – peacock and colours that are festive.

Ok peeps.. I am off to nap again. Thanks for coming by. ๐Ÿ˜€ xxx

Hi peeps, can u believe it, my second post today(scroll down for the earlier one)… woo hoo..

I have thoroughly enjoyed this piece, dedicated to myself. I normally make cards for my family, friends and for sale, but never really for myself. So today, I thought I show myself a little more ::Love:: by making this card, inspired by Cardabilities Sketch #13. So fun and satisfying!

I had used for the first time, my Whole Cycle set by Practising Creativity Designs (PCD), lots of PCD here today.. the sentiment, cycle, the kite and the ribbons. I heart the little buttons that I had gotten… dont they look great as little flowers on my greeneries..

I thank you for always visiting by.. I have been so busy the last couple months, that I find it hard to find time to blog. Thank you for leaving such lovely comments. They always made my days esp the days I just needed a friendly smiles. Thanks peeps.. for your love and hugs.. XXX

Happy Birthday dearie ๐Ÿ˜€

Hi peeps..

Today is a good day! Coz.. I am feeling relax, I crafted, I get to make someone happy ๐Ÿ™‚ Life cant be better than that, right?
I have just quit my job, was just feeling too tired all the time, and I dont want to live my life feeling tired, energy-less. If my health cant take my job demands… no point right. After all, life is short, I want to have some balance. So I have decided, that I will take a month break. I do have another job waiting, but I am not sure if I want to return to the corporate line anymore.

So this morning, I am glad I woke up with a smile, did some surfing, and make a card. Later, my hubby n I will go to some nice little shop somewhere in teh heart of KL to have some infamous noodles.. managed by generations from this family. I am told its the best… So looking forward to it.. yum.. yum!!

So here a card I make for a dear friend, whose birthday is today! I heart this new rose set from W9Plus and the crinkled ribbon that arrived ages ago, and my first time using it. So thrilled. Happy Birthday Charmaine, may God continue to bless you with many wonders, joys and little miracles of life. Hugs………

Thanks for dropping by! ๐Ÿ˜€ Happy Weekend!
