Mummy to be... Congratulation!

Hello there!

Half way through the week. Keep on going, weekend will soon be here!! ^_^

A good friend of mine, Monica, is going to have a caesarean tomorrow. She will become a mummy again for the third time and I can't wait to meet her little one. I made this card over the weekend for her, to celebrate and wish her good luck on the delivery of her baby boy.
Here is a closer look of the image.
This stamp image is an old one. It's from Elzybells which I believe is no longer available. It is the perfect 'mummy to be' image. I hand wrote the words and I hope it is not too ugly!! ^_^

As I recently heard another great news from my Japanese friend Kiko, I decided to make another card for her too. She is expecting a baby in January next year. Life is just wonderful when you are surrounded with all this great, surprising news!

So here are the cards. Same layout, same image but just slightly different colours.
I have created these two cards based on this week's sketch at Friday Sketch Challenge #82. It is an easy to follow sketch and I like it.  
That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by and I will see you soon.

Bright Shiny Snowflake Card

Hello Peeps!

OMG! When was the last time I blogged? Life is getting a bit crazy but exciting at my little house. We had new house appliances fitted and new fences in the garden. (Finally, we have an oven = we will have Christmas dinner this year!! Hooray!) I am busy reading the manual so that I can operate them and my husband is busy painting all the fences to protect them.

Anyway, I am here today to share a Christmas card.
I love cards with movements! I used Spellbinders Shapeabilities Snowflake Pendants dies (S5-117) to die cut two of the snowflakes. I then used a metal brad to fix the two sized snowflakes on top of each other. To make the snowflake dangle, I attached it on a silver cord which is then fixed to the back of the backing paper.
I don't want to take the focus away from the Snowflake but still want to make it interesting so I chose a plain white card and embossed it with Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder. I hand tore the embossing card at the bottom to reveal the pattern/words paper. I also inked the torn edges by using red ink just to emphasise the unique jagged line. I love the hand torn effect! Revealing of the paper fibre and the one and only squiggle tore line are just something that excite me!! ^_^
Here is the close up look of the snowflake. I used a red mirror card for the large snowflake to make it shine! 
I am entering this card to Virginia's View Challenge #9 - All Things Metallic. My red mirror card snowflake, metal brad and silver cord should count, right?
By using left over pattern paper and cards, I am also entering this card to Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 151.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice weekend.
