Just For You, Darling

Finally it’s Friday! Last day of work before the highly anticipated long weekend! I am soooo happy to be able to sleep in and laze around the house eventhough I’m guessing my nieces and nephew will be coming over and spend time with me and my parents until Monday. I don’t mind though, I have missed them so much!

I am here to show you a new card featuring this darling stamp (the name is very apt!) from The Greeting Farm. I don’y know why the photo kind of washed out the image. It’s not really good, but I didn’t have time to re-take this photo. I hope it’s ok and you will still like it.

This Is Just The Beginning

Back at work! I am in zombie mode due to still being jetlagged, but these paperworks won’t clear themselves! Hehe. I hope I’ll survive the next 3 days of work then it’ll be long weekend as it will be the most festive time of the year.

Anyway, I am still missing summer days in south of France. Here’s a card to remember those wam special days.

Cheers!

Happy Monday, everyone! It’s been a short but sweet ride in Paris and now I am heading back to Jakarta. It has been such an awesome summer holiday! I think this is my second summer trip to Europe (during my adult life hehe) and eventhough it’s so packed but the weather and view was breathtaking. I think next time Spring or Autumn would be a better (and cheaper!) option hehe.

Anyway, here’s another summery card to end this trip. She is a cute one from The Greeting Farm.

Thanks, Friend

I am traveling from London back to Paris today. Kind of bittersweet as this is my second trip to London this year. The city is amazing and I never get tired of it. I have been so into British things lately, maybe the past 4 years. It started with their TV shows. After discovering their TV show, Sherlock, I get hooked on other shows including two of my all time favorites: Great British Bake Off and Have I Got News For You. Yes, those two shows are very different but are both so interesting and funny hehe.

This card is to say, thank you, London. You have been such a great city to visit! I hope to visit more in the future :)

Happy Wishes

Hello everyone! I have been quite diligent in posting in this blog. I hope to keep it up until the end of year (oops, I hope I’m not speaking too soon hehe). I sometimes get caught up in business trips that I don’t get to create anything. I hope to be able to be more productive now that I’ve reduced my business travels.

Here’s a new card that’s Summer-ish hehe. That pineapple paper is my favorite!

Oh Happy Day!

It was such a lovely weekend last Saturday. My good friend Izumi married the love of her love in such a perfect summer day. It was beautiful and lively. I met her when I was in Elementary school, the first time I went to Europe. We were in the same tour around Europe, she was with her brother and parents and I was with my aunt. Long after the tour ended we kept in touch via snail mail, until we discovered Facebook. I met her again last year in Tokyo after almost 20 years. It was so delightful. When she invited me to attend her wedding this summer I said yes immediately and it was the right decision since I got a very low price deal for flight. I mean it’s summer and I got less that 800 dollars for a return ticket! Must be fate :)

Anyway, to celebrate her wedding, here’s a card featuring a bride and a cute little birdie. I haven’t made cards with a Magnolia stamp in a while. I love how it turned out :)

Thinking of You

I know that school would probably be out when this post is up, but I found this image perfect for the papers here. It’s like she’s jumping for joy on the last day of school before summer. The original image came with a skull on the center of her bow, so I covered it with a rhinestone. Hehe.

Au Revoir!

It’s my traveling day today and I am so excited. I will be going to France today to attend my friend’s wedding in Pont Saint Esprit later in the weekend. Don’t ask me where that is, since all I know it’s in South of France and I’ve never been there before.

So to celebrate this summer trip, I’ve created a card with Parisian theme to it. I hope you like it :)

Sparkle

Good morning everyone! I have a new card to show you. I just can’t help the colors I used here, it is one of my favorites! I really love creamy pinks like this!

I also colored this cutie from The Greeting Farm and included a word die cut from a metallic gold cardstock. I love how sparkley this is!

Summer Fun

Happy Friday, everyone! I am so excited to get home from Sydney tomorrow. I have to pack for another trip next week. Today’s card is a simple, summery card. I love scene cards like this, but I am not used to it. I like layers and showcasing patterns. I love it nonetheless. I hope you do too!
