Chinese Anya

Hello everyone.. I have not made any cards yet since last Monday. My days were too busy with the job's interviews and also taking care my DH. He got an accident, he fall out from his motorbike and got second degree burn injured on his leg. And until now he barely can walk.. :(

Today i sneak out a while in my craft room because i had this idea for a week in my mind.. I created Chinese Anya for TGF Design Your Anya contest. I'm not so good in drawing her *sigh*

anya chinese

Thought it would be nice if Geisha Anya got a friend so she can hang out together, attending tea ceremony, watching Chinese/Japanese movies, go to the Lantern Festival, etc :)
How about you? Do you have a close buddy that share so many wonderful things together? Well I hope so because true friendship is a precious thing in the world :)

One of my fave challenge is following the Card Chain Challenge (CCC) host by Deborah.
Guess what Mr. Postman deliver to my home this morning?
May CCC from Kelly Booth
Two wonderful May CCC cards by Kelly Booth. The first card she used TGF-Cuddle Anya stamp, friendship theme and Deborah's sketch.
And one more purpalade card using WS-Ebony.
As you may know, her coloring is GORGEOUS!! The real cards are even better than the photos.
I LOOOOOVE them so much.. and thank you for the extras Kelly, big HUGE hugs to you!!

And here is my May CCC sent to Vera Rhuhay:
I was afraid when sending this card to Vera. I'm afraid she did not like this card because it's not my usual fun style.. I still learn how to create an elegant card using hydrangea as I saw so many super talented flickr friends and Hero Arts Artist use the hydrangea stamp so beautifully!!
And i was relieved when she said she like it :)
I used friendship theme and the color palette (not exactly the same with Deborah's palette)

Hero Arts stamps: K5376, CL342
Paper: blush notecard PS544 by HeroArts and my pink linen cardstock
Ink: Ranger distress inks and Memento tuxedo black
EK success punch
Colored with copics add some pearls and gems :)

Thanks for looking! :)

My graduation day, goodies and souvenir :)

Happy weekend to all of you my friends.. Flashback a little.. from Mon-Wed i was so busy at my office doing my daily job and reviewed the audit report, Thurs is my last day at the office, but till 5.30 pm i was soo busy handover my job, review the audit reports again (because my Boss wanted me to review it until the last second), and i did as best as i could to finish all of them.. at least that is my last goodwill for one last time :)

Then i was so surprise got this "souvenir" from my colleagues, actually i almost drop my tears.. but no.. i still can hold it.. i want to be happy on my last day :)

I would love to share my RAK goodies from lovely Sue (Suzanne C.):

I won this prize from QOTW posted by Sue in flickr thread about a month ago :) Lucky me not only i got the fab HA stamp but also i got the famous tag made by Sue herself, and she knew exactly that my fave color is PINK!! How sweet!! Thank you so much Sue :)

Plus one more goodies that just arrived today is my prize from TGF Royal Battle Challenge, remember the whole voting things several months ago.. our team: THE DREAM TEAM won the second place at the battle, and that's because of your generous votes and my fellow dreamers Kathy Racoosin and Deirdre Horgan, they are the BEST mates ever!!

Birthdays in a row..

Hi gals.. How are you doing?
I feel so happy today.. it's just because soon i'll be graduated from my current job. After 3 years and 5 months been there, finally i have courage to move on even though it's a tough decision for me. Thanks to my DH, families and friends who support me through the difficult moments, and encouraging me everydays, you're the angels in my life!!

Now i would like to share some birthday cards created to my sister Rosalia and my best friend Meilani. Meilani's birthday is May 13 and my sister Rosalia is May 15 same with my DH, Widya. But until now i still have no idea how to create a birthday card for my DH, isn't it weird?

Birthday girl

When i chat with Meilani couple days ago, i asked about her favorite color(s)? she said red-blue-yellow. Then i asked her again elegant or fun style? she answered fun!

Then i come up with this card.. I add other colors too such as green to match with her scooter, black in one of her gifts as i love the black and red combo.. and it match with the candle. Hope it's not too much and i hope it's fun enough.. :)

Happy birthday Meilani!! Wish you have wonderful days with tons of fun and happiness and gifts :)
