Each Passing Year is Another Journey Travelled

Hi everyone, hope all of you is enjoying the week so far.

I'll be flying back to Indonesia on Thursday evening as it's Eid ul-Fitr (which translates to lots and lots of yummy food for the whole weekend, wooohooo!!!), so I thought I'd publish another post tonight.

Today's card is a card for my brother in law's birthday, which falls sometime this week--I've already mailed out this card a couple of days ago but I'm quite certain that's it's gonna reach him late! Oooopsss, my bad!

Anyway, here's the card using Card Pattern's Sketch 80. Not sure that the pattern is 100% as sketched, as it turned out that the bicycle image was too wide for a rectangular card T_T.

My brother in law loves cycling, so choosing the bicycle image as the topper was not a hard choice :). I created this bike silhouette digistamp from an image from Modish at SXC.

The cardstock and patterned paper I used were SEI's Oasis range; it's definitely one of my favorites although I think they might have discontinued this range :(.

As an embellishment, I printed a verse on kraft paper and adhered it to a punched scalloped circle cardstock (cut by my new Marvy Uchida Scalloped Circle Punch). Font credit goes to Kevin and Amanda's Free Scrapbook Fonts.

I'm submitting this cards to these following challenges too: CCCB Week 21 (One for the Boys, using the color blue), Paper Cutz Challenge #57 (1 ribbon, 2 button, and 3 colors--blue, brown and cream), and also enrolling them for the second time at Bee Crafty's Anything Goes (with digi-image), Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge's Anything Goes, and Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge (Write Me a Message).

Okay people... Gotta go now, got some packing to do :). Hope you enjoy the rest of the week and keep an eye out for my next post 'cos I may be posting loads of photos of oh-so-yummy food!


Much love,

New House! - Set of 3

Hi people, enjoying the weekend so far?

I've been meaning to make these cards ever since my husband and I moved into our new house, but welllll... being me, I've only gotten around to make them today ^_^. I made a set of house-themed digistamps to 'celebrate' moving in to this house and I thought I'd make a set of 'change of address' cards.

So here they are, using CPS #183 sketch.

These cute cards are so quick and easy to make, especially with my Woodware craft punches. Gone are the days of painstakingly cutting circles with scalloped scissors! :) The cardstock I used were plain colored 160 gsm office supply papers, patterned paper is DCWV's The Spring Stack.

I colored the digis using watercolor pencils. I quite enjoy using pencils to color stamped images; I think it's easier to fix when I make mistakes. I can actually erase and recolor some parts of the image, like what I did on these three images :D.

On top of the CPS blog, I'm also submitting these cuties to Stamp Something's Something Cute Challenge, Digi Doodle Shop's Best Write Me a Message Challenge, as well as Bee Crafty's Anything Goes challenge (have to use digital image, though), and Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges Anything Goes.

That's all for today's post, but I promise I'll be back early next week with another card that I made for my brother in law :D.

Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Much love,
