A card to share

photo-16

Hi peeps,

Just sharing with you this card, a Mother’s Day card that I made using SRM stickers. I just love those ready to peel and stick on stickers. No need to think much, coz they come is such gorgeous design, colours and the sentiments are fab to use as the background is transparent.. making them so easy to place on the card. Fabulous.

Do check out their store and more inspiration @ SRM blog.

SRM Stickers is our sponsor this week over at 365cards, and I decided to join in the fun and play Word Wednesday – Mother this week.

So make sure you hop on by and play with us.

Have a great day….

Grow

Apr 7Grow is my buzz word for this year ♥

This year on a personal level, I am focusing on continued enhancement of my growth journey to be a stronger person, happier and more positive person. This means more ‘me’ time, allowing myself space to be.. to be gentler on myself and love myself. I know it sounds self indulgent rite.. who cares! as long as I am happy :p. Coz when you are happy, you radiate joy from within to those around you and you share that very bit of yourself! Being brought up in a environment of high expectation and performance based, one grows to be relentlessly hard on oneself for so so many years. My journey had not been easy, and the last couple of months has been a grace period and I want to swarm myself with all the good things in my daily life so that I allow love, joy and peace to rain within and strengthen the very being of myself :). Heart!

So today I share with you a card inspired by lovely sketch by Wendi over 365cards and that is how I have interpreted her sketch.

Hi peeps,

Before I say more, just wanna wish you all a Blessed Easter and give you a Big Hug!!! 🙂

Yeap, I am back to share with you a card today, I know its not an Easter card. Easter symbolises New Life… well, this is kinda the same too, dont ya think :p. Its a baby card. I just love making this card, coz its a happy card and I love the sweet colours, baby pin and all the tiny hearts that I had used here. Love! 🙂

I am back in my hometown to help my mum run her vege stall in our local market, for the the ching beng season.

Its the season for us chinese (similar to All Souls Day), to visit the graves of our family members who had passed on. During this time, my mum sells flowers in addition to her vegetables… and its one of her busiest seasons. Flowers sold are mostly chrysanthemums. So I am back here for a week or two and also just enjoying catching up with my fabulous brother Paul Ling ( he is angel without wings) and my mum and dad. Its a bonus, having all the local Foochow delicacies whilst I am home… super yummy 🙂

Chasing after my dreams… {heart}

photo-8

Hiya…

I have great news to share… that I am on the path of achieving my dreams. Strange isn’t it, only chasing after my dreams in my forties… I have always have passion for people, working with people, for growth and development. I have to say that I have been blessed with many gifts for I am a “Jack of all trades, master of none” lol. For many years, I am left wondering what would be the most fulfilling role or work that will give me the greatest joy.

I studied teaching at our local university, and began my first job as a teacher in a remote village, I found it a bit boring and unchallenging for someone who cant wait to get out and see the world :p. I decided that I wanted a career change and began my adventure in the corporate world in the bright city lights. I was doing well as a salesperson in the courier industry and moved on to training within the same company. I had enjoyed the challenges working with colleagues and was  performing well at work. I was a natural trainer. I then moved on from training to marketing, managing channel sales and international project management in Pakistan ( a stint which I totally loved) for a 1.5 years stint. I then started having serious health issues that left me exhausted and tired all the time. Facing a rather complicated hormonal imbalance, I decided to quit the corporate scene and took time to reevaluate my life and direction.

It started me on a journey to understand myself when I attended a series of PRH (Personality Human Relations ) programs and it took me on a beautiful journey to discover the person that is rooted deep within myself. The last 7 years of self journey has been a difficult but precious time, it is through PRH, I have uncovered doorways to my inner creativity, Cardmaking being one of them. I have had a fabulous time during my pilgrimage Nov – Dec 2012 (its like Eat, Love & Pray movie – heart) that has help solidify my personal experiences. Twas the time of my life too {grin:}

Since I came back, I have decided that I want to continue pursue the area of self  growth and be a PRH educator. I am overwhelmed, excited to embark on this  life long journey of commitment to love and growth. I am so thankful of His mercies and love. God is just amazing and awesome. Thank you Lord. I am excited. Keep me in prayers.. {heart}

Okie back to the card.. isnt this a fun card! I love this sassy digi Some Support – How You Holding Up from Bugaboo Stamps. I had fun playing with one. This card has been inspired by this gorgeous sketch Wendi over at 365cards.

Love is in the Air

Love .closeup

Love is in the air ♥ and I am not only talking about the “usual” stereotyping of what love might be though it is the Valentine season :).

The Chinese around the world also celebrates the New Lunar Year, ie ushering the year of the Snake (zodiac sign) today! Firecrackers and fireworks can be heard at the stroke of midnight, warding off bad spirits and negative vibrations and ushering new hope for a better and more wonderful year… joys, love, happiness, good health and prosperity!

Chinese New Year card with “Spring” sentiment ( welcoming newness and blooms)

Families get together for a reunion dinner (yesterday) on the eve of New Year. Familial Love is abundance, and parents gifted their young with red packets and vice versa, children wishes their parents with phrases of goodwill, happiness and prosperity.

This morning I woke up to such sweet aroma of the preparation of the Long Life Noodles with Red Rice Wine Chicken, to usher in wishes for longevity and wishes for luck, abundance and prosperity.

Long Life Noodle with Red Rice Wine Chicken write ups 🙂

So, to all my Chinese readers…. GONG XI FA CAI (Happy Prosperous New Year) wishing abundance of all that is good this coming year.

Back to my card.
