Tiffany Blue Quilling Handmade Card for Mom

A card for mom:
Made following a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Hi guys! I'm glad to be back on the computer--my hard drive died and I had no laptop for a bit. I lost some of my pictures and unfortunately some of my card collection with it. :( On the other hand, I'm glad that I was doing a semi-good job uploading many of the card pictures on the blog. Let this be a lesson to you all as well...back up your information if it's important enough to you! I would like to just go on my way pretending I never took the pictures, but somehow I can't! I just can't! Such is life...

Hope you'll be out and about enjoying the nice weather--we're having sunny days in the upper 60s! I planted my tomato seeds and hopefully I'll be seeing some of them soon!

Quilling Purple and White Flowers Circle Window Card

Sometimes it's so hard to capture a handmade greeting--this card was one of them!
 I had to hold it closed for the picture, so that a deep shadow isn't cast on the center.

This window card was made for my brother's friend. I've known him for many years now, but one thing I didn't know until now was how much of a romantic he is! Hopefully this will mark a great start to a new relationship! Best of luck to them!

I printed the wording on vellum and attached it to the inside of the card, so that it'll peer through the hole.

Have a great weekend craft people!

Quilled Yellow Orange Sunflower

Hello! Thanks for stopping in today! I have the good fortune of being selected as the guest designer at the sweetest thing this week! This card was made following the Sweet Sunday Sketch 182:

I had a lot of fun making this card. There's a lot going on, but I do like trying to put the quilling as the center focus. I just bought some sunflower seeds to grow, so I made sunflowers amid my excitement!

They are chalked which is where you see the fading effects.

Big thanks to Karen for giving me the opportunity to join in the fun this week! Do head over to play or just say hello to her!

Star of David Shaped Bat Mitzvah Card

April is here! Hope you had a few good laughs from April Fools Day. :)

I was playing around with this online software for digi stamps and it turns out they have some free ones to let you play around with and print I did--it works! If any of you are interested, you can find it at Cuddly Buddly ARPY. The free ones are on the right bar and you can drag them onto the white space for editing. There's a printer button on the top bar for whenever you're ready to get working on them! Very simple to do. There's also an option to import from your computer or purchase them directly from the site. This process bypasses having to load it into an image editing software on your computer.

Last week, I made some egg tarts for work and they came out pretty well! There are different types, but I just went with the original Cantonese "don tot."

I made a simple shaped card for a friend to give to a girl who was having a bat mitzvah:

The paper used for the overlay of the star actually shimmers pearlescent in the right light.

Happy day to you all!
