Happy New Year's "EVE"! lol ;-)

Finally I got some "MY TIME". I'd been so busy and hadn't checked blogger for 10 days? and hadn't posted it any on my blog for almost 3 weeks! Hanukkah, Christmas, "thanksgiving in december party", all in 10 days with lots of baking & cooking, and "moving" (again!) made me really busy. Hope you all had a wonderful Hanukkah, Christmas & looking forward to the new year, 2012!

Today is my birthday, and I'm uploading the birthday cards I made for others this month. LOL! Unfortunately I hadn't had enough time to finish & mail them, but when new week starts, I'll go to the post office to mail them. They are for my House Mouse online buddies. The first one ~ Confetti were colored with Perfect pearls, using water. Three little confetti & the mouse were layered with pop up glut dots for more dimention, as well as punched out balloons on the right. The strawberry cake stamp is from PSX. I used Glaze pen over strawberries, clear star pen over the lace on the cake stand, yellow stickles for candle lights. I've drawn "stitch line" around the image. The second one ~ I think most are self explanatory. I used Glossy accents on keyboards, three jumping mice were layered with pop up glue dots for more dimention. I used this colors (black & red) because I'm sending a snoopy rubber stamp, in red sports car, which I also have in Guam (the car, I mean! lol!), with black leather inside, which is my "love" in Guam! lol :-) The recipient luvs Snoopy stamps as well as I do (I believe!), so I bought the stamp which would match with this card colors :-)

Thank you all for stopping by my blog today. Hope you'll all have a SAFE New Year's Eve. I'll see you soon in 2012! :-)

~ Traditional Christmas Colors ~

This is the theme at One Stop Craft Challenge this week. Although I used Distress inks, they are Red & Green, the traditional christmas colors :-) Small trees were punched out from textured (embossed) card stock. Twines and background DP were too white so I distressed them using TH distress ink, directly to them. I used Viva Decor Pearl pens for Cream & Gold pearls on branches, and used "distressed" red glitter for red dots on branches. I used the nestabilities for sentiment, which I CUT & mailed it here. I don't have a nestabilities with me, and had to color the edges, as the way it is shown there, different from coloring using the nestability dies, stil attached to the die cut outs. I found this image from my stash from years ago, and wanted to color it as soon as I found it, and this will go to my house mouse online buddy in NM :-)
Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today, in your busy Holiday Season. I appreciate it! :-)

~ Blue Christmas ~

That's the theme at Delightful Challenge, and this is the card I made for my best friend & Godmother this year. Well, right now, I'm in Guam, USA, "where America's day begins", so it's like on this card here, at the moment, Santa is coming from the sea, with dolphins! ;-), with lots of sunshine, blue sky, blue ocean, seashells... all stamps are from Guam's original stamp company. On the small ornaments on the right bottom corner, you can see Palm trees on one and "latte Stones" on another one. "Latte Stones" are found on Guam and neighboring islands, and nobody really knows why they are here... You can't really see it from the picture, but the main image is more shiney, from me using sakura clear star pen to give more shimmers on the sun & waves. I put fun flock for santa's clothe too :-) Both are going to VA where they expect Snow flurries on Christmas day, I'm mailing this card, with lots of sunshine & WARM feeling! :-)
Hope you are having a nice Sunday evening~~ Thank you for stopping by! :-)

thank you card

ok, lots of places have started to see the White Stuff which I don't like. lol... but I wanted to share this card with you today, the one I made for our "Thank you" swap for my House Mouse group I belong. It was the swap of November, and it went out on 30th, the last day of due date :) The recipient will be receiving it, very soon. I couldn't take a good picture. I haven't figured out how to take a good picture at the place where I am now, yet... with lighting and all.. so I have a bit more to explain about things the camera didn't pick up.... the leaves on the main image, I used the glitter pen to draw the veins of most of the leaves. Two falling leaves & mice were cut from the 2nd stamped image, and were adhered with foam tape to give a bit of dimention. I used distress inks for trees, before attaching them on the card. I also used the weavy textured paper to punch out the dark brown trees. I don't have a cuttlebug where I am at now... I chose this image for this swap because I wanted to say, "for being a friend" inside :-) The mice got a ride from this doggy, because they are friends :-) I also distressed the fall leaves DP because the white parts of the paper was "too" white. Hope the recipient of this card will be pleased with my card :-)
Thank you for stopping by my blog today :-) Have a nice evening~~:-)

"Snow Much Fun!"

ok, I never think so but the challenge calls for that, and I love to watch Ice Hockey games, so here is my take on the challenge at Creative Inspirations. I made this card to my House Mouse Online buddy who also loves to watch sports, incld. NHL, like me! :) That's the only time I WOULD go to the COLDER place, EAGERLY! lol!
Three mice on the front and a puck were cut from the 2nd stamped image, layered them for more dimention. Yes, those "wooden" hockey sticks were even thinner than the tails of mice, and I almost cut them off! lol! I used yellow stickles for the fire. I distressed the edges of the main panel. Since I wanted this to be a Christmas card to her, I added the tree, being decorated with stars and tinsels (I wrapped the tree with tinsel), used foam tape for more dimention.
Hope you are having "Snow Much Fun" wherever you are at, while I'm having "SUN Much FUN" at the beach! lol ;-) Thank you for stopping by my blog today :-)

~ it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ~~

yes, it is :-) The other day, I went to Home Depot (in Guam). People were loading Fresh Christmas Trees up to their SUVs, like this card! :-) Except there is no snow here on the Tropical Island :-) Anyways, I made this card to my old time online friend whom I recently reconnected once again. She loves cats, like I do, and I had this stamp for ages but never inked it before! ha! yes, I was ONCE a COLLECTOR, like many stampers from old time were (or still are! lol!). I'm also submitting this card to the challenge at the Paper Variety where they are having the theme of "Christmas lyrics" :-) yes, I'm singing, like these peanuts! lol :-)Lots of Old stamps have black images on the back of the stamps, not colored, and in a way, it's good because you can color anyways you want, and I chose RED for this car, because I have a RED car which I love, and missed a lot! :-) I distressed the edge of the main image panel. Then I used Sakura Souffle pen/white to make snow, lots of snow, ... like Snow Storm! lol :-) Although the picture doesn't show, the layering blue paper underneath has simmer in it. I distressed a bit of plain but DP, with Snowflake stamping in the same distress ink. For the sentiment, I first stamped music notes in versa mark, but it doesn't show much, esp. in the photo but it's there! :-) I wrote a Christmas lyrics on it, and used Sakura Souffle pen again, to make MORE snow! :) Yes, this card has lots of snow on it, because although the recipient of this card lives in NV, she loves SNOW! (I can't believe that fact! lol!) So I'm sending her lots of snow on this card! :-) On mom cat's coat (cuffs), baby cat's hat, and big brother cat's hat have flock on them, to show the fuzz! :-) I also used silver mica powder to paint (mixing with water) for the rims of the tires, but it doesn't show on the picture much either. ..

Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today. I appreciate your comments! Have a nice evening~~ :-)

Finally, A Card!!

Actually I've been making cards lately, although the last post of my card is over 2 months ago... it's hard to make cards in different location, with lack of stamping supplies. Also I can't find the place to take good pictures... anyways, when I saw this image, one of my "house mouse online buddy" came to my mind. ok, she is a quilter and this is not a Quilting image, and I know House Mouse Does have a quilting image but this image is the closest image I got; quilt~cozy & warm inside~this image! lol :-) I layered the cuff of the hat & three mice but cut the images separately so some of the mice's ears could go over the raised cuff of the hat. I used the flock on the top of the hat, for "fuzzy" feeling :-) To make it more like a Christmas card to my friend, I added the christmas tree brad on the left corner, and plastic Glittery Poinsetta button on the right, although the glitter doesn't show that much on the picture. I used DP to punch out the mittens, and adhered with dimentional glue dots. "Mittens" give "fuzzy & warm" feelings. :-) Since House Mouse & Friends' Monday is having the challenge of "Fuzzy & Warm", I'm submitting this. I used this sentiment, feeling "peace" from these mice's sleeping faces...
Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today. Hope you are having a cozy & warm evening wherever you are at :-)
editor's note; right now, I'm on the tropical island, no need of mittens nor hat, but wearing the t-shirt & shorts. Lots of sunshine and luving it! I can't take "cold/snow" :-)
