April CCC

Hello everyone :) It's sunny and hot here, and i'm at my office preparing all the things before i bury myself into tons of works, better i share my happiness first :)

I took part in April CCC hosted by Deborah Nolan. This is my first experience and i LOOOOVE it ;) From 3 option that Deborah offer i choose my favorite which is Asian Theme. Why? because i'm asian girl and i looove all things about asian especially Japanese and Chinese. Here is my card:

April CCC-Geisha

I combined three stamp companies: Hero Arts, The Greeting Farm and Inkadinkado. Well let me introduce you to Kaoru (she's altered, her body is made from CL373-good fortune and her face & hair is made from TGF-Anya Geisha). Her kimono is paper pieced from Japanese origami paper. And she brings her fave Japanese's fan (from CL373) everywhere.
I used Inkadinkado-Bamboo stamp and Hero Arts LP163-three paper lantern for the background.

Here is the closer look:
April CCC-Geisha

Other supplies are Memento tuxedo black ink, ranger embossing powder, glossy accents, gems and fancy pants paper.

I sent my geisha's card to Simone Naoum. I'm so glad that she got it and she like it :)

Then i would love to share these stunning cards created by Jette Pedersen for me as her April CCC. I love love love her butterflies, the rich colors against the kraft paper and red pearls/clear bubble gems are perfect touch. Thank you so much Jette, you really made my day!!

TGF Royal Battle week three

This week challenge is so hard (at least for me), it is a layout! I think we are so lucky, the one who did this challenge is Kathy Racoosin(aka masterpiece stampers). Fasten your seatbelt, hope you're not fallen from your chair when you see this STUNNER: When i saw this layout, i stop breathing for a while.. oh MAN, the color combo, the photo, the stitching and the patchwork landscape is beyond my word!! Dunno what you think, but for me doing layout is soooo difficult, it much much bigger than card size and it's not easy put all the element together (photo, stamp, color combo, embelishment and sentiment/journals).. KUDDOS for you Kathy.. you DID it amazingly!! If you love the layout just like me and willing to give your vote to our group please leave your comment here no later than Tuesday, April 13th. Thank you soo much for your vote and hope we will make it to the next round.. :) Hope you have a great weekend!! Off to watch my favorite serial movie '24' season 8 :) BIG hugs, Fika

Today i have three happy news to share with you my friends.. :) First, we (The Dream Team) are through to the next round... Thank you so much for all my friends and family who voted for us. I'm so happy and super excited as the next round is creating scrapbook page which will be created by our team leader Kathy Racoosin (aka MASTERPIECE stampers that is what i called her)!! Just can't wait to see what she come up with.. pretty sure will be amazing like always. Second happy news that i want to share with y'all is today i'm featured at Deborah's Wednesday Wonder. I'm so thrilled and so happy, it was two months ago when she asked me to do this interview, and I think I'm so lucky that she offered me this opportunity and said YES, I would love to! And now i'm amaze that she even knows about all the diversity in my nations include with the unique ethnics, languages, island, etc.. Man, are you a walking wikipedia Deborah?? Her funny comments and sweet compliments about me with details made me smiling so big, hey Deborah.. i DON'T have a glass desktop, LOL!! It's funny when i think exactly the same when i look at her simply stunning onelayer "GUPPY LOVE". I keep in my mind, i wanna do that too.. but then when i try to do it, i keep adding more and more embellishments in my card, it's become so far away from simple!! Anyways, thanks a lot Deborah for featuring me, you really made my day :) And at last, i keep the best for the last.. heehee.. i run the random generator to pick one lucky winner of my giveaway and here is the lucky girl: Donelda said...
