Mini Groovie Challenge & Yellow Challenge

Just finished my Groovie Mar - Apr Mini Challenge by Feli in Groovie Java Scraps Cafe and I combined it with Papier House Yellow Challenge.


The stamp image, epoxy sticker & chipboard are sponsored by Feli. There are a lot more yummy embellishments, just that I did not use up all. Thanks Feli.


The house is colored yellow, and embellished with some yellow flowers around it. Frame is stamped with yellow staz on ink.


Made the base of the card with yellow cardstock. Centre of the card is stamped with Tim Holtz mustard (yellow) & spice marmalade (orange) distressed inks and, edge inked with Walnut stain. The flourish stamp is by AL (Autumn Leaves) while the flower stamp is by Fontwerks. Originally flower is much smaller, I have restamped with edges to create a much bigger one. And the word "Thanks" is handwritten by me. Border of the card puched by Fiskars Water threading Border Punch...

TFL!

Chance upon this on Black River Designs' Blog and I find this interesting... Not sure if there will be people interested in my hand made stuff though...

The first three people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

Hightea at Conrad Centennial Singapore Hotel

In the noon I went to have hightea with my scrapper friend, Irene (Scrappyheart) at Conrad Centennial Singapore Hotel! The teas that they served are really nice. I had the garden of herbs with mint, lavender, rose, chamomile, etc..., it is soothing and with a really nice fragrance. The chocolates and desserts are awfully tasty & sinful! They serve nice sandwiches in bite sizes too! Nice catch up session as we have both been busy and long time no meet up le...









Got to know Irene through TSL and admire her handmade cards, and the passion for cardmaking just get us connected together, the North (Woodlands) meet East (Tampines)! Oops! Now you may have guessed which part of Singapore I'm staying at??? Muahaha....

We haven't get enough after the hightea and we proceed to Koufu and have some homemade lemon tea while continue to exchange ideas and techniques... Then we went to Kinokuniya A 'N' BC at Raffles City and bought some reaaly nice gift wrap papers and I bought a block stamp by Kodomo which I feel, is at a very reasonable price...

Back from the Creative Escape!

Finally back from thje creative escape, this is really a fun and tiring day but I sure enjoyed my day! Had much fun learning new techniques from Kah-Mei Smith, Donna Downey & Tia Benett, and meeting some old and new faces! Coincidentally, met my ex-colleague, Geraldine! What a small world!

But what got me sad is when I was on my way, I realised that I have left my cutterpede on the OHP Projector and forgotten about it after helping MF to take her photo with Tia Benett. Though I've been utilising it for a couple of years and with the depreciation, I didn't lose much, but what makes it valueable is that it has got the signatures of the scrapbooking masters, and this is the very 1st proper paper trimmer which I've bought ever since I start scrapbooking, which has got such invaluable sentimental value!

I pray hard that it can be found... tonight gonna be a sad day for me which is a totally contrast from what I'm feeling during the day...

To The creative Escape...

I'm so excited! Will be going to the creative escape soon and have much fun! Keep a lookout, will post more on the escapade after my return...

Almost an accident!

Today almost met with accident on the bus no. 8. The driver suddenly jam break and all the standing passengers, including me almost fall off despite holding tight to the chairs, etc.

I'm terribly shocked and scared, due to fear that I may sprained my ankle again. My ankle sprained since Feb, has yet fully recovered and I certainly do not wish to injure the same spot again. It's been months since I'm injured. From very cautious to avoid taking cold drinks, spicy & sour food to simply bor chap! Especially with the extremely high temperature around, I can't help but pick up ice from the fridge and enjoy a moment of chill...

For the lottery lovers out there, you can consider to buy the bus plate no. 2574 or 2754 , cant remember exactly the plate no. though (SBS****X), muahaha...

Some Neighbourhood Photos











Have you ever stopped and take a good look at your neighbourhood? That day was in a special mood, saw some unique dark clouds from far on my way home while travelling along the road. And decided to went up to some nearby flats to snap around. Only then I realised the "darkness" in the cloud is due to some light reflections... However, I'm gald that I walked around the neighbourhood to have a better look...

Should I move forward now?

Received a call from an old buddy, she asked if I'm keen to join her in some freelance job and doing some online biz together... I'm keen and I really feel like coming out of the rat race and start on my own... My only fear is that my parents can't accept it... as this is gonna be at my own risk and the income will be unstable... thinking hard, thinking real hard... I guess I won't have the answer until I can really sit down and measure the pros & cons...

When did I become people's pet???

Got a shocked when I received this message in my hotmail inbox!


When did I become other people's pet? When did I got sold at $500.00 when I don't even have the slightest idea! If you are a Tagged member and have not been logging in for long, pls check? You may have unknowingly "bought over" by others...
