What happened?

... where did the time go? The year, time really went by fast! What happened last week? And I missed Glenda's Random Amusing Challenge Smiley from millan.net. Well, here is my entry for this week, and I took Glenda's advice, I double up the challenge. Hope you like it!
Ahhhh -nouncing!
My famous Amuse collection book...
As you all know, I am totally insane with Amuse stamps. Actually, aren't we all, hehe!
When I first addicted to Amuse stamps... as my collection started to grow, I was carrying a piece of cardstock with all my images on it, but then 1, 2, 3... pages of cardstock are started to go out of control. Smiley from millan.net So, I created my first edition of my own Amuse collection book about a year and a half ago.
Smiley from millan.net This is my second edition. I made for the The Paper Tree Amuse Collection Album class. Michelle, the owner is so kind to allow me to teach the class, and it is a honor for me to share this album to my fellow Amuse Addicts. Come join us if you can, please call Michelle at (603)624-8800 for details.

AP Challenge #2

AMuse*A*Palooza Challenge #2: Ribbon!
I put on my "thinking cap" and then I saw my "pink ribbon storage bag"... a blue ribbon caught my eyes. It's perfect!!! Here comes the sailboat, sun, snorkel boy, life's a breeze, sand dollar, and seaweed. And I even added birds (I'm so proud of myself, why? Because I don't like to draw/freehand on to my cards for some reasons, I always think that I will ruin the card)... but, I think this turns out okay.

Summer Fun...

I know it's not July or August yet! But I am really for the beautiful summer days. I made this card for the AMuse Lounge summer swap. The theme is what we are going to do this summer... And in eed... I went to Paris, France. What a beautiful city.... Le Effiel Tower, Catherdale de Notre Dame, Arc-de -Triomphe, Musee du Louvre, Opera House. Especially shopping at the Lafayette, walking down Avenue des Champs-Elysees and Place de la Concorde. The trip was amazing! Especially the architecture, and the Musee du Louvre.... WoW, WOW, WOW!!!

tHe PeRfEcT dAy

Happy Sunday, and it's a perfect day in the blogging world! Here is my card for TGF Farm Fresh Friday 3 stamps challenge, the rule is to create a card with at least 3 TGF stamps. Check out the detail here!

I had a great time creating this card, I only used 3 stamps. I used the Hope & Grace set and the Panda & friends set. I like how it turned out, I didn't used much... a few pieces of cardstock, my beloved Copic Markers, Spica pens, "the perfect day" rub on, the sticker heart and dots.
Well, it's late, time to catch some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.... Millan.netOff I go to dreamland!

some Unity love...

Here is a perfect treat! It was difficult to pick which stamp to use when there are a brunch of COOL stamps from the June KOM. But, I was having some after-dinner ice-cream, the choice was quite clear!!! Smiley from millan.net I didn't make it to the deadline for the Bits & Pieces & Unity hip hop challenge, but I wanted to use up some of my scraps. Oh, what fun! Plus, it feels really good to use scraps...

TFL and have a wonderful weekend!

another SQUARE card.

Well, this was the plan for today... Smiley from millan.net, I don't really enjoy it... However, I do love the end product, sitting at the deck enjoying my home grown tomatoes and smelling beautiful flowers. But, it was raining. Smiley from millan.net. So, I called up my good friend, we went shopping and made cards all day. So wonderful!!! Here is another entry for the Amuse-A-Palozza Square challenge. I airbrushed the sunset with my awesome-ness Copic Markers. I love the Cabana stamp. Just wishing that I was there! Ahhhhh......

Shoebox swap at the Tree!

Ohhh... what a FUN night at the Paper Tree, Manchesteer, NH. We had our monthly shoebox swap tonight. The theme was Stamping Bella. We hanged out, made cards, chat, laugh until we all dropped. We had such a fun group....

Love ya all ladies!!! Smiley from millan.net I want to show you all the fun cards that I made.
Connie's... what a beautiful card, so colorful! The stories of you and your poncho is too cute. I'm sure you looked very styling with that. Thanks for teaching us the ribbon trick. Plus, I love that paper!
Tracy's... Absolutely love the color! Never thought of using shimmerz after coloring the image. So clever, hands down!!! I'm loving it! Too bad, I forgot the bling for her eyes.

Tasha's.... the most PRICELESS pair of sneakers in the world! I LOVE the color combination. Even Stacy and Clinton (from What not to wear) will be proud of them.

Carol's... beautifully done. Great idea on using stardust pens for her hair! It's perfect! Pardon, my inky corner.
Sandy's.... another well done card, beautiful layers, and color combination. Great pick on the papers! Love them.
And finally, this is mine! I am still into GREEN, why? I don't know...

Just one layer?!

Oh boy! That's a tough challenge, but it was fun! No layering! Check out TGF's blog for more details.

Well, here is my scoop! I stamped Annika on a separate piece of cardstock, cut her out, masked it on the card while I stamped the background (a clear stamps from Prima - timbres transparents) in memento cocoa, inked it with Tim Holtz distressed ink in old paper, colored with my beloved Copic Markers (background- E31 & Y26, Annika E40, E41, R32, R39, E00, & R00), added a ribbon, punched a big hole, and added the pretty flower.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!

You're the BEST!

Yes, you're sure the BEST! Millan.net Hehe... What a wonderful day! The weather was good, I went to a FUN baby shower, relaxed, and crafted all evening. Here is my entry for the A Muse Lounge Challenge#6: It's a Guy Thing. My guy is totally a computer geek. I love using the mainly man set for him. BTW, I am in love with the new gingham paper!!!

P.S. I can't wait until A-Muse-a-Palooza? Is it here yet? 26 days to go... who's counting? Smiley from millan.net
