"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;
