Absolutely, nothing better this after a long day of work... HAHA! Isn't this too cute? This is the Bubbly Fun Fhiona set from Your Next Stamp. Fhiona sure know best... a pretty pink headband, a muddy face mask, and relaxing in a lavender bubby bath. That actually sound really good ;)
I used the challenge from The Pink Elephant. And it's a recipe challenge, we need...
1 ribbon - I got this terry cloth ribbon which I got a while ago, YAY!
2 squares - got that!
something that sparkles - I used SMOOCH for the mni-flowers, Copic Spica pens and stardust pens for the bathroon accessories and bubbles.
Thanks for stopping by...
off to bed... night, night! ;)

Spooky Monday...

Hello, since Mondays are always yucky! How about a fun card to start out your day...
I got these super cute Halloween papers (Moxxie Eye of Newt - Toe of Frog) from my LSS. I used Tommy from Softpencil. I cut out his dino and his little ducky. The ghosts are a wood mounted stamp from Amuse. And I got the mice border punch from Martha Stewart.

Have a great Monday!

It's done. This is for the Amuse monthly swap at the Paper Tree. And for this month, the theme is animal. I brought the sombrero hat for a while, but I think I only inked it up once for Cinco de Mayo. So I figured it would be perfect it use it with the donkey for this... but it didn't turn out too cool. So, I decided to used the panda! Not bad! Mr. Panda is kinda of styling! Smiley from

Penny Black Saturday Challenge

For this week's challenge, the theme is Christmas! I want some non-traditional Christmas colors. And since I do not have any Penny Black Christmas stamp (I quess I have to get some, hehe!) I used this cute little dog in the Bubbly set, and I added a Christmas hat.
Hope you like it!

Roar for you!

This great sketch layout is from the Greeting Farm Fresh Farm Friday Challenge.
I used the Wild Thing stamp set.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

For this week, the DT gals are working with this wonderful image called Loving Birds from the Softpencil Etsy Shop. And we have to totally glam it up with lots of blings, sparkles, shine, etc... I love my glitter, sticklers, shimmerz... but I was lost for a while and don't know what to do So, since I can't decided.. I made 2 cards!

Card 1 - I printed the image onto acetate, I covered the loving birds with Art Institute Art Glitter.

I'm so sorry that the glitter and glimmer doesn't show well in the pictures. Smiley from

So sweet, so precious! I just want to hold him forever. Smiley from We also treated ourselves with a manicure and pedicure. We went to shopping for a little bit, and I came home and craft...

Softpencil Thursday!

Happy Thursday! I love this image from Softpencil, it's called House Collection Set 2. I fell in love with this image when I first discovered Softpencil. I have been thinking... it would make a very fun pop-up card. And to the wonderful surprise, the DT had picked this image for this week's special... Yay!!! So excited! It's time...
I kept it simple... I airbrushed the background with Copic Markers, cut out and colored all the images, added the punched out little cute flowers (I used a $1 mini-flower punch, hehe!). I also added little shine and sparkles by using Spica pens and red Smooch.
Hope you like it, and please stop by other DT gals' and guest designers' blog!
Have a wonderful day!

What a wonderful day... just relaxing!

Not much going on, being lazy! So, I decided to do the Penny Black Saturday challenge. For this week's challenge which is a color challenge, we have to use blue... tan & cream. The image is from Penny Black critter party clear stamps and the sentiment is from Amuse (after I finished the card, then I saw... the stamps set had the same sentiment Smiley from )
Later, enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Woohoo, what a fun night!!! VSN at SCS and I got to play it Amuse style. Dish #1- Foil Dinner
Use embossing powder and the heating tool! I couldn't help to use the milkshake stamp, I embossed it with silver embossing powder, then colored it with Copic markers and spica pens.

Dish #2 - She was a fishmonger.
Use gel (water) technique, need something that relate to sea life. Actually, I don't have any fishes on the card... will the deep sea diver count? Oops!!!

Dish #3 - Leftover!
Use up all the scraps!! I had these green 1" stripe cardstock forever... yes!!! Everything is from my scrap box, and even the flowers has been in my draw forever too!!! Thanks VSN!!!

Dish #4 - Knife Skills
Use any/all cutting tools. I used nestabilities for the layout, then I cut out the rockin' girl with a pair of scissors, and the sentiment is cut out by decorated scissors (which I haven't use them forever!).
Thanks so much!!!
