Birthday card I dedicate to Jen

Aloha Jen, here's a card that I would like to dedicate to you. I really love this stamp that my friend sent me from United Kingdom. I wish I knew in advance it's your birthday today :)

Just to let you all know that Jen at Pieces of Me have a birthday party all day long :) So go ahead and join in the fun! Hurry up you still have time because it will end at 6 pm Hawaii Standard Time. Can you imagine that every hour she's giving away a lot of stamps and embellisments. As she said "don't forget to let your readers know about this crazy insane party we are having - or at least say you don't want them to know so that you can have more chances!!! =0) LOL that's true BUT I want to share the fun so come on over to her blog. I'm sure you'll love what you see..... Mahalo!

RAKs and The Pink Elepant Challenge #2

I entered this Mother's day card for The Pink Elepant Challenge Blog by Lori and Robin. This week challenge #2 is to use something of little sparkles. I added rhinestone in the middle of the flowers and I added stickels on the petals too. I added stickles on the butterflies, the scallop border and the sentiment. I'm not happy about the photo, so please click it to open a new window so you could see some sparkles. So happy that I used my edge punch from Martha Stewart and my swirls clear stamps from Autumn Leaves by Rhonna Farrer. And I have to give a credit for my dear hubby because he picked the papers from Basic Grey-Ambrosia/winsome and zest and the design. My hubby is a great designer too :) TY hubby :) I love how it turned out.

Busy Days & some good news

My good news....Guess what? This card is a winner in Challenge #3 on Valentine's Mini Card Crop hosted by: Anne House. Here are the lists of the winners I love this beautiful sketch of Anne. I made this card for my hubby, he's so happy when I showed him my name on the winner lists. My hubby is so lucky to keep this card because some of my cards that won was in the box, my girls doesn't want me to give away. They said that I have to keep it. :) By the way, this is one of my biggest prize :) $50 GC.

Another card I entered to Challenge #2 You Have No Heart! at SNR. Yes, as Anne said is to create a Valentine's Card...without a single heart on it. No hearts on the paper, ribbons, not a single heart anywhere. Consider this is your Anti-Heart challenge...and have fun!! I had one on my mind when I saw this challenge, it's my chance to use the rubber stamp from my special friend Linda that sent me. Yes this is my second time using this cute image stamp *Kyle with daisy* from Cuddly Buddly rubber stamp. Thank you so much my dear friend Linda :) I had so much fun stamping and I need more practice lol...

I entered this card for Challenge #1 Flower Power at Scrapbook News and Review on Valentine's Mini Card Crop hosted by: Anne House. I was happy that I finished all the challenges even though I was very busy that time. I had so much fun.....
This is one of the reason why I was so busy before Valentine's Day. My dear hubby had a fundraising by selling roses. They sold 42 dozen of roses. We had a hard time looking for the flower vase but when we saw this inexpensive mug at Price Buster, we bought around 42. This is gorgeous, I really love the saying *You color my life with love* and the design. I made the mini card/tag in last minute. I cut the heart from cricut and inked the edges then stamp it, it says *Wishing you all the LOVE a lifetime can hold...* The stamp is from Stampendous!
And my other good news.... and another reason why I was really busy. I made 50 Birthday cards and 10 Sympathy cards and sold to my new friend :)
These 10 Thank You cards I made for free, and she was very happy about it. For the very first time that I sold my cards not only one but many :) Right now I'm starting some Mother's day cards to sell again. So I'm super busy again....
Thank you for looking!

Bitten by the BUG Doodlecharm Hearts

This week at Bitten By The Bug Challenge Blog, Regina want us to used the beautiful heart in Doodlecharms cartridge. In this card I used my own sketch here . I cut the hearts from my cricut expression using the Doodlecharms cartridge. Then I made the ribbon flower and made the 3 silver spiral and I added acrylic jewels.

My girls want some too so I have to make some more with the spinner. This is really fun playing lol... I enter this card to also for the technique category the spinner card.
