Happy 50th anniversary!

How impressive to have 50th wedding anniversary!! Even my father passed away before they hit 50th anniversary!... When I read my house mouse online friend's post in house mouse yahoo group I belong to, back in February, I wanted to make a card for them :) I wanted to make a card a bit fancy for celebrating 50th anniversary, but since I'm mailing this to Canada from USA (BUT, long way from here, Guam USA), I didn't want to send anything too thick or too fragile. I decided to make a FANCY front, and used Glitter lace background technique (ok, I'm not sure how it's called, really, but learned it somewhere a while back...). The background LACE paper I MADE is the one I used that technique. So, it's not the real LACE I layered on the card stock. I used similar design paper from MS holiday/valentine's day paper stack for layering the main image & the sentiment. I used glitter glue (yellow) on sunflower petals, randomly, but it's a little hard to see. White little punched out hearts on the right corner & layering paper underneath of glittered lace background paper has also shimmer in them but it's hard to see it on the picture...but very similar simmer to that white ribbon and that's the reason I chose that ribbon, to match. The sentiment stamp is old Holly Pond Hill collection. The number "50" is from alphabet set of Lawn Fawn. Surprisingly, the font MATCHED with the Happy Anniversary Stamp! And the size is also perfect that "50" being a bit larger! How exciting! lol! I wrote a little "th" by the number "50". :-) I used pearl pen to make "her" pearl necklace :-) Other pearls are store bought; white & red, both. I placed a little heart gem inside of the number "0". Yes, as you noticed, I FINALLY got my C-plate in the mail!! yeah! :-) It's so nice to "Cuttlebug" again! lol :-)
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Have a great week! :-)

another "miss you" card from Guam to PA! :-)

"he", who hardly understands arts said the last card (Guam to PA!) was awesome. lol! Hope "he" will think so again, with this card. ;-) I enjoyed making this card. First I wanted to use that sentiment with the paper plane stamp (both in the same set from Lawn Fawn). I also wanted to use chevron pattern, which is also Lawn Fawn. The beach scene is Guam's Original stamp company's. I colored  it using markers and this shows Guam (USA) where I am now. The right scene shows western PA where "he" is now, and western PA is in the mountains.  I used the inkadinkado tree stamp, colored the stamp with markers. I colored the "ground/mountain" with distress ink, cutting the shape of the land, and masked & colored using ink applicator. I paper pieced the paper plane with the same paper I used for background. I stamped the chevron pattern and trimmed it. I used fiskar's punch to punch out the clouds from the card stock I stamped Hero Arts Envelope pattern in lighter ink and inked around the edge of clouds to give a bit more definition after punching those out. The end of the sentiment "...", I used a dot of explamation mark from Lawn Fawn alphabet set :-) SUN is old CTMH. I luv this sun, and almost always use it when "the sun" is needed! :-) I'm submitting this card to Lawnscaping challenge, "Stamp a scene".

Gorgeous day & evening, Guam, USA! :)

Last Friday was Gorgeous here, desite of Friday the 13th! ;-) Yesterday, we had a Gorgeous sunset. Most of you are not familiar with this island I am at now, so I thought I would share the pictures & youtube short video clips. I took a day time photo & video of Agana bay from the patio of Cafe where I had an Iced coffee :-) The sunset one was taken from the patio of Beach Bar & Grill at Gun Beach, and that's why it's kind of noisy, in the background. There was a live band, and many people were there, behind me.
Thank you for "Visiting" Guam today! Hope you all had a great weekend! :-)

3rd Lawnscaping Blog Hop!! :-)

Welcome to the Lawnscaping Blog Hop ! So glad you’re here! You should have come to me by way of Erika M. This month's theme is all about Spring! The hop runs from Friday, April 6th - Sunday, April 8th! Now sit back and relax and be prepared to be inspired. We have lots of designers on this hop so we want to make sure you have time to see them all! You have the whole weekend to hop along.... Make sure to comment on all of the blogs because there are LOTS of prizes to be won! All the details can be found on the Lawnscaping home page .
Here is my card.
To make this card, I used 4 Lawn Fawn Stamp sets. I changed the stamp image of birdbath to a little fountain, and used paper plane TRAIL stamp to make the water coming out from the of the bottom. :-) I used sakura gel pen over the water. I also made a new kind of trees, using a big tree stamp with 3 layers of leaves to 6 layers (and embossed with swiss dots embossing folder), and a chopped trunk/log stamp to make trunks of the trees. Except the watering can & tulips, everything is paper pieced. I did sponging on the background; sky & ground. I used hero arts envelope pattern stamp, to use fiskar's cloud punch (small) and used hero arts bigger cloud stamp, trimmed it, and stamped an old CTMH's sentiment. At last, the fox is smelling the tulips! :-) "Spring" reminds me of many birds, and that's why I made this card :-)
Thank you for participating Lawnscaping #3 Blog Hop, and thank you for stopping by my blog! :-) Next head on to Patricia Hays blog. If you've gotten off track, don't worry! Head on back to Lawnscaping to see the complete list of the hop participants and prize information! Have a great weekend! :-)

updated : April 13, 2012, this card was picked as one of 7 Fawny Flickr Friday  card! yay! ;-)

Thinking of you too...

As I mentioned before, I have another friend who's been dealing with her health & her husband health in California. I made this card for her, hoping this will give her a bit of smile, and also let her know that I've been thinking of her also. She sent me this Tilda's stamp late last year. I think that was for my birthday. I've been wanting to color her ever since! :-) I now have Flower Soft, and wanted to use it for the Lilac Tild is carrying. I knew it would work for my lavender image but wasn't sure for lilac, especially for smaller image, but I like the way it turned out :-) When I want to cheer someone up, I tend to use the color Yellow :-) (also for the birthdays:-)) . I also tend to go rather clean & simply for Tilda. I think Tilda herself is so cute, and I don't want her to be burried in too many embellishments. This style works for me :-) I stamped flowers from Rubber Stampede, on the top, to make it look like lilac she is holding :-) I added glitter glue (puprple) randomely to give a bit of shimmer to the card. I used swiss dots embossing folder for background paper. The sentiment is from Hero arts. To finish it off, I used a pretty white ribbon! :-) I layered the main image & the sentiment with dimentional foam to give a bit of depth to the card.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Happy Easter!! :-)

I'm submitting this card to Magnolia-licious challenge.

Thinking of you...

I've been thinking of my MOUSE friend (house mouse online group friend) in California. In fact, I have TWO mouse friends I've been thinking of in California but this goes to one of them, and also later, I'll upload another "thinking of you" card for another friend...
She's been rather healthy (like me :-) ) but for the last couple of months, she has been having more doctors appointments than she's ever had, in such a short time. So I've been wanting to make a card to give her a bit of smile, and shows her I've been thinking about her and praying...
Lavender & purple always calm my nerve down :-) I luv working with the color & the flower. It just relaxes me, since I was a 4th grader... :-) And now you know why I have THIS blog name & profile picture. :-)  Flower soft never appealed to me til I met THIS house mouse stamp & this color of flower soft :-) I luv how it looks. Hope you agree with me too. lol :-)

I also loved this week's challenge sketch at the Sweet Stops. And I finally got a chance to USE new papers from DCWV which I found at Joann right before I left PA, and BROGHT them with me in my carry on, because I got nervous for missing luggage & in the mail. I fell in love with these 2 stacks of papers from DCWV, and guess what the name is; the Chateau Lavender Matstack & its Cardstock Matstack. :-) Now you know how much I love Lavender! lol! When you have great papers, you just want to use them as many as possible, and so do I :-) I usually don't decorate inside of the card, but I did, for this, using the same paper I used (circles) for upper and bottom corners of the front. I even used a small part of the paper for the sentiment from this stack :-) It may not show on the pciture but the card stock I layered the main image & the sentiment are shimmery paper. Hope this card will give her a bit of relaxation when she looks at it ...
Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today. Have a great long weekend! :-)

another SHAKER card!

ok, this is my 3rd Shaker card this month! lol! After us, the house mouse group members have decided to have a Shaker card Swap this month, I've already made two, and at last, I made this card for the swap, and it's in the mail to the recipient :-) I made the INSIDE of the card first. This month, due to the warm weather at the east coast of US, Cherry Blossoms have started to bloom early in D.C. And this year is their 100th celebration after they received trees from Japan as a gift. Everytime I see cherry blossoms in D.C. in pictures, I remember my childhood when I was living in Tokyo, Japan. Cherry Blossoms to me are not only the symbol of spring but also "APRIL"! lol! "April" in Japan is the start of school year when many kids carry their Brand New leather bags, with their new textbooks & new school supplies, IF you are the first grader and 7th grader, and because of leather, they look so new! :-) The same can be said for many new employees, after they graduate from universities in March, and Japanese companies, schools, etc. hire certain number of newly graduates, and they wear New Suit, incld. usually new leather shoes, and they also look so fresh! :-) To me, those are the SET incld.cherry blossoms, in early April, every year. I love cherry blossoms! I used old hero arts' Inches (I think they don't call that stamp that. lol) of cherry blossoms, randomly stamped to make a frame so that I can write something in "that frame". I happened to have a left over rick rack in matching color so I adhered it and I trimmed another house mouse stamp image (the mouse carrying the jelly beans) and adhere it in the end of the rick rack. I used sakura glaze pen for jelly beans, and just used the matching color for the card; Pink only. On the front page, I used Posh Impression's cherry blossoms stamp, using markers to ink it. The sentiment stamp is Memory box. I adhered the left over cherry blossoms stickers (I believe it's Jolee''s, but am not sure without the packaging...) on the corners. I'm submitting this to Simon says stamp challenge ; "Anything goes" :-)
Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today. Although Guam (where I am right now) doesn't have cherry blossoms, hope some of you see beautiful cherry blossoms in your neighborhood :-)

Happy Easter! :-)

This is the easter card I made, for Three Non stamping friends, for this easter, and I just mailed them. :-) I bought this stamp set last spring but hadn't had a chance to ink them. Since I love Chocolate Bunny (!!), this was perfect! lol! Inside of the card, I stamped "Wishing you a Sweet Easter" sentiment with an egg image. The stamp set was a Dollar at Michaels! ;-) I think this was my FIRST CAS Easter card, and I like it! :-) I used the technique, "Partial cuttlebug embossing" I watched the video clip of at Stamp tv a while back, and in her talk, she mentioned about using the same embossing folder on top & the bottom, so this is what I did. Actually when I first watched this video, I made a card for CAS-ual friday but the challenge expired before I uploaded mycard and I can't find the picture and the card is still in PA... Anyways, I used Swiss Dots embossing folder. It's pretty much self-explanatory. The petit oval die is from my stash, and I had to handcut the larger oval from brown card stock, because, I still haven't received C-plate yet... some of you know what's been happening to my C-plate... oh well... do you think my HANDCUTTING dies getting better ??!! lol! All stamped images were heat embossed.

Masculine Birthday Card

I needed to make a Masculine birthday card, and saw this sketch at this week's challenge at Mojo Monday Blog . Here is my card. The recipient is a Pittsburgh Penguins' Fan (NHL). I don't like "Black & Gold" but it's Team's color so I can't change. lol :-) Hockey Jersey is from Stamps N'More which I bought last summer at stamp convention. I've never used this stamp til now :-) The skate is from INKADINKADO. It's a Roller skate but since he plays roller hockey, it's fine :-) I stamped Lawn Fawn's Cheveron pattern and trimmed one side, to make it close to the sketch. The sentiment is from Penny Black. All stamped images were heat embossed. The hockey jersey is adhered with pop up glue dots for a bit of dimention.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Enjoy the rest of the WARM weekend! :)

Get Well Soon...

well, it started out to be a "get well soon" card after I heard she had a Stroke, and had to be in rehab. for 2 months. I finally made a card, and heard that she was getting out in two days! I was happy about fast recovery! So I changed the sentiment from "Get well soon" to"Thinking of You" :-) well, this is the thing. We play cards everytime we get together. That's "OUR" thing, and I found this House Mouse image so perfect, even with the wooden chair in the back!, just like their Dining table where we usually play! :-) I used a darker yellow DP (same design as other light yellow poldka dots paper I used for this card) to punch the flowers out, and I used gold gel pen for the center of the flowers.
Thank you for visiting my blog today. Have a great day! :-)
I'm submitting this to : Cute Card challenge ~ anything goes

Sending Love your way...

from Guam, USA in the Pacific to Pittsburgh, PA. !! :-) And that's what this card front shows! :-) I found this background Cute Map stamped image in my stash. I remember this was from Stamping gathering at CTMH's consultant's house, about... 10 years ago... I had an idea using this mail box stamp & sentiment from Lawn Fawn but needed the MAP image on the background. I don't have a printer for digi image nor anywhere I can find nice DP here on the island, BUT very fortunately I found this image!:-) The background image was a bit larger but I cut off the top where it said Canada. I tried to place the mailbox "in the pacific", trying to not cover the stamped image of the words, "Pacific". I placed the envelope on Pittsburgh area. :-) I could punch those little hearts out BUT I stamped the hearts from another Lawn Fawn set, and put the strip of the red card stock with the images through Xron tape adhesive maker, and trimmed them, because I loved the shape of this heart to this card compared to the heart punch I had. I colored the WHITE background card stock, using 2 distress inks to look more like an "old map". I paperpieced the mail box, and also used the distress inks around the edges. I also "distressed" this little "envelope"! :-) At last, I used the twine to make it look like "wrapped" mail. :-)

Birthday Shaker card to my "house mouse" friend

I like this type of shaker card; shaker box INSIDE of the card, and almost FULL size of the card! I can decorate it more! :-) In shaker box, I put lightly peal tinted hearts, purple "Happy Birthday", yellow(Gold) birthday cake and other little things from different bags of confettis, to match the colors of the card. The corner image is an old CTMH. The sentiment inside is Penny Black. I punched out swirls on the Echo park dp on the bottom. On the front, I used the same dp, used a Fiskars flower punch on the four corners. I love this punch! :-) ... no I haven't gotten my C-late yet...BUT fortunately I found Purple scallop circle die cut out in my stash from last october, when I did lots of just cutting, using nestabilities and the cuttlebug, and this shape & the size is the only purple I found!:-) I added a couple of flowers from the different punch to finish the card:-) The setiment on the front is TPC Studio.

"You are my Home"

"Sentiment" is the key at CAS-ual Fridays this week. And this recipient cares for "sentiment" much more than the "design" of the card (simple is the best! loll :-) , so I made this card. Inside, it says, "Missing you" with a little heart by its side :-) Stamps are Hero Arts, in the packaging with the logo of Operation Write Home. How appropriate! :-) I'm glad I finished the card, and was being able to upload it. My camera's battery died when I was taking a picture, and I had only 90 mins. before the challenge expired.... lol...
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Hope everyone is having a nice evening! :-)

One year later...

3.11 marks one year after that big earthquake hit northeastern part of Japan and HUGE tsunami engulfed 20,000 Japanese people. I've seen many pictures of "now & a year ago", esp. those things which was destroyed by the earthquake & Tsunami. I can see Japanese people have been working hard to rebuild. But I watched BBC documentary on youtube today; the Japan's children of the Tsunami. This BBC program is almost one hour long, but mainly focusing the interviews on the survived children. The children talks about how they physically felt the earthquake, how they emotionally felt & have been feeling ever since, the totally changed everyday life, carrying the radiation detecter, no time frame of when they who had to evacuate from their own houses can go home (20~30 year?..)cuz of the high radiation level, to their dream when they grow up. Some wants to help people who suffers from natural disaster, radiation researcher... If you are interested, you can watch the documentary at
I keep praying for people in Japan ...

My first St. Patty's day card this year :-)

I'm a "wanna be Irish"! lol ;-) I've always celebrated this day, with Green Cookies to Green Beer, even I'm FAAAR from Irish! lol! I don't have anything green to wear, except for St. patty's day shirt! lol :-) And I totally forgot that I'm now on the island where I can't find any Irish people, on this US soil... maybe only the military personel from US mainland. So, I couldn't find Shamrock confetti, which I've seen so often when I was in Pittsburgh.... I punched out some shamrocks, found a red heart, red LIP shape, and shimmery tiny hearts confetti from my old stash here, for the shaker box. Since those shamrocks are papers, I needed to put the real confetti which helps things in the shaker box to move, rather than stick.... oh yes, this is for my Special half Irish person (!!) and that's why I put those hearts & lip confetti :-) I used this week's sketch at CardPatterns challenge. Apparently I forgot to pack my fav. St. Patty's day DPs for layering, so I had to stamp & heat embossed! And for lighter green card stock, I embossed with swiss dots embossing folder. I used sakura clear star gel pen to give a bit of shimmer around the both edges on the green circle card stock for the shaker box. The main image is an old Posh Impressions Stamp, and the background shamrocks are old hero arts stamp. Two shamrocks in the background stamped paper above the shaker box are cut outs. I found the spaces there, and used the shimmery paper to punch out, the same one I used, inside of the shaker box, and adhered them for more shimmery look!:-)
Thank you for visiting my blog today. I really appreciate you to stop by in your busy schedule and leave some comments :-)

Sketch Challenge at Lawnscaping!

This is the sketch at Lawnscaping's challenge this week, and this is my card :-) This is the first time I used picasa software for better picture look! :-) All stamps are Lawn Fawn. I layered the rectangle piece with foam tapes, and added another layer (oval) with foam tapes over it. I used Stickles over "steam" image. I stamped a tiny heart with white ink, on each cup on the oval card stock, went over to color them in with Uniball white pen. I used tiny heart embossing folder for background paper. yes, I DO have 2 B-plates, so I can use my cuttlebug to, at least, Emboss, at the moment. I "doubled" the ribbon, to make that look.
Hope you all are having a nice night. Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

Sugar and Spice...

and Everything nice! This is the theme at House-Mouse & Friends Monday challenge. I took "Sugar" part & Everything nice on my HM buddy's birthday! :) As some of you know that I recently moved, and brought Cuttlebug (in carry-on luggage! ha!~of course, they asked me what it is at the security check point!! ) and mailed B-plates, rubber mat, all of my nestabilities & all my embossing folders... See what is missing here??!! "C-PLATE!" :-( No set date for C-plate to arrive here... I was overwhelmed when I was packing and I don't remember where the C-plate is now.. I know it's somewhere in PA! lol...Anyways, it's not PERFECT like using nestabilities for the oval shape to be cut, handcutting! and I really wanted to have pink Scallop oval paper to layer the main image. So, I came up with this idea, to make a similar background paper; Ribbon! I've put Strong adhesive tape on the back of the main image, and made frills from straight ribbon. I'm surprised to find the matched colored ribbon from 10 years ago, to a year old papers! But now I ran out of red tape and hopefully I can find the similar strength adhesive tape later today. ... it's hard to find things on this small tropical island When I NEED something... lol.. You do become Patient in life in general, though! lol :-) I use 10 year old gel pen from Pilot for faux stitching lines. From my experience, Sakura gel pen works Perfect after 10 years, Pilot, still works, not perfect, but those cheapy gel pens, made in Korea, I had to through all away. So, for your info., if you think you'll be stamping for next 10 years, I recommend you to buy Sakura Gel Pens! lol :-) I used sakura clear star pen over doiley image, to give a bit of shimmer. I also used the same pen for "blowing the candle" on inside image. I used sakura glaze pen over candles for more "wax" look. I used Ballon punch for inside image, and just hand draw the strings. I still need to improve the pictures, for sharper image. ... yellow stickle was used for the flame.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a great week! :-)

Get Well soon!

My HM stamping friend is in rehab, after the foot surgery. I wanna cheer her up when she sees this in her mail box after she comes home, to show that I'd been thinking & praying for her. I saw this sketch at Mojo Monday, and made a card using the Square sketch. Good thing I remembered that they are closing the challenge in about an hour! ha! I bought this new camera; Nikon. I'm not sure it's about this camera OR my New Setting of photo shooting place at my new place.. it doesn't show as clear as I want it to be... anyways, here is the sketch & my card. Hearts on the corner are adhered with pop up glue dots to give a bit more dimention. I punched out the tiny white hearts, adhered them onto the larger red hearts for extra design. The sentiment is the part of an old Hero Arts stamp.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Hope you all are having a relaxed sunday! :-)

Group's Swap Card~White & another color

I made this card for February swap in the house mouse group I belong to. I luv RED and I found the Perfect image! I always wear Red Lipgloss when I go out at night. So this little mouse is "me"! lol :-) I cut the little mouse with the lipstick & the case from another stamped image and layered them to give some dimention :-) Everything else is pretty much self-explanatory. oh, we could use the natural colors for our mice.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Hope you all are having a great day! :-)

Finally a Card! ha! :-)

This week, at Casual Friday is "Jest for the Pun of it!"( They want us to use a pun, or a sentiment in a silly way to create a joke, on our CAS creation, so I did. :-) I made this card to "someone"(!!) I miss, and inside of the card, it says "Thinking of you LOTS!" :-) I haven't found a great spot to take a good picture yet at my new place. So please bear with me. :-) The recipient doesn't care much about the design of the card but care about the sentiment, esp. Funny ones, so this challenge was perfect! :-)
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Hope your week has started out Good! :-)

"Tea" swap

January is a National Tea Month, and my house mouse online buddy wanted to do "tea" swap, and this is the card I made, and I liked this week's sketch at Mojo Monday, I decided to use this sketch. All stamps are from Lawn Fawn set. I stamped the steam & tea leaf randomly on the pink card stock. I used Impressability to emboss light purple background card stock, for the top half. Tea pot, tea cup steam from the tea cup & hearts are all heat embossed.

Today, Ravens won, and I'm happy :-) Except 49er's, I like all other 3 teams who's won this weekend, for Super Bowl :-) I don't dislike 49er's either. So, I'm good to go, for Super Bowl! LOL :-) Hope everybody is having a long great weekend. :-) Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today :-)

House Mouse Swap Cards

I belong to House Mouse Yahoo group, and we have monthly swap. Last month, it was Anything Goes & this month, "GUAM swap!" LOL! I know, probably nobody nor no group ever had this theme before. LOL! I was back in Guam from last October, and although I have tons of Stamping supplies there, they are all 8~10 years old things, BEFORE the stamping industry came up with so many fancy things (til this day!), and I missed the CURRENT trend, esp. Cuttlebug which I couldn't bring. Anyways, Guam Swap is to make a card using the things which was available about 8 years ago, which means, no cuttlebug, no fancy dp, etc. This is the card I made for my partner. ONLY thing I missed is that THIS House Mouse stamp is rather new, not available about 8 years ago.. LOL! Some Mousie friend mentioned, and I realized after finishing making it! LOL! The card is rather self explanatory. I STAMPED all over on the background paper. Back then, there weren't many fancy DP available, and we MADE our own, stamping lots on the paper. I stamped the two mice on the front and a coffee cup on another paper & card stock and layered them to give them more dimention. Jute cord was there to show the tie for the coffee bag you usualy see in real life, to close the bag. :-) oh back then, there were no Distress ink, and I SPONGED the dye ink around the image :-) The 2nd card is last months' swap card; anything goes. I made this card, with bright colors & rather summery image, cuz I HATE winter... I LUV SUNSHINE, Blue Sky & WARM temp. :-) I stamped another mouse & some of the flower petals, layered them with dimentional foam to give the depth to the image. I cut a little where the oar goes into the water, to give the smooth look from the height, into the water. and I colored the white edge of the slit with the perfect pearls I used for the water, for more natural look. Yes, we had Perfect pearls, and I luved using them a lot back then :-)

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Hope you all are having a nice long weekend :-)

2012 Orange Bowl Highlights

2012 Orange Bowl ~ My School Won BIG!

Many of you know that I'm a BIG college football fan. Of course, I LUV my school. Unfortunately 83% people thought that Clemson would beat us but we, the mountaineers CRUSHED them last night; 70-33!! The BOWL GAME'S RECORD POINTS! This game was my dream came true because I also took a summer course at Clemson! I was looking forward to this game since they started to talk about the chance of these 2 schools going to Orange bowl, after we beat USF, the last game of the season. I bought this t-shirt (on the picture), and wore it with WVU earrings for the game! :-) Clemson got 1st TD, and I thought, uh-oh... but it turned out to be AN AMAZING GAME!! Again, the final score is 70-33!! Great job, guys! :-)

Happy New Year!!

2012 has started! :-)
This is the new year's card I made for my mother who lives in Tokyo. It's their custom to send new year's card, rather than Christmas cards in US. And it's not really a card which they send, but rather, a POSTCARD. The sentiment says "happy new year" in Japanese. All stamps are from Posh impressions, except Tilda. Since it's a postcard, I couldn't put too much dimentions & embellishments other than glitter glue & tiny pearls using pearl pen.
Thank you for visiting my blog today. Wishing you all an amazing year!! :-)
I'm entering this to;
Allsorts challenge ~ New Beginnings
Cute Card Thursday ~ Happy New Year!
