A special card for you~

This is the second time I participate on Friday Sketchers challenge. This week's sketch is by Heidi from Norway:

I have enjoyed making this card and I think the sketch is great. I will sure use it again.

As my good friend Erin is going back to Taiwan tomorrow, I have made this leaving card for her and her family. I have paper pieced Tilda's dress and layered the oval shape and Tilda figure on sticky foam pads to give it a 3D look.

I hope she likes the card! It is so hard and sad to say goodbye...
We will give her our love and best wishes and know that she will be doing great in starting a new life in Taiwan. Take good care~

真的很捨不得妳走,missing you already!

For my Grandad...

My beloved Grandad passed away on 8th May 2009. It was a shocking news as it all happened so quickly. I believe he had a good 89 years of life and my love will always stay with him. Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend his funeral in Taiwan. However, I made this card especially for him and luckily it arrived in time before his cremation. This card will be cremated with Grandad and I hope he has received it.

My Grandad loves orchids. He has a huge garden where he plants hundreds and hundreds of orchids. He also creates new breeds of orchids and won many awards. With sadness, I struggled to make the card as my mind has gone blank and no suitable craft material in hand. In the end, I made this simple card and hand drawn a picture of my Grandad's favourite flower- Orchid. Truly hope Grandad will like it.

My first challenge!

This is the first time ever I have taken part in a blog challenge and the blog is:
Friday Sketchers Challenge Blog

Here is this week's sketch #52 by Claudia Rosa.

And here is my card.

This is a card for my sister-in-law Sharon. She loves pink and who doesn't! So I thought I would try the combination of pink and brown. I have used my new Magnolia 'Tilda with rose' stamp. It took me a while to finish this card as I made the heart shaped ribbon buckle myself. Threading and attaching those dangling beads took a bit of time too. However, I think it is well worth it.

Well, this is my first challenge and I certainly enjoyed it. I am sure this will not be the last! I am actually looking forward to the next sketch and if I have time maybe I will try other blog challenges too! Hope you like my card. scuba diving in Navy Pier
