I think I should attach my kids' artworks here!

Sam and Yileen had a very creative and wonderful time playing the clay that given by a magazine company as a gift that I subscribed.

I didn't guide them to play the clay just watched them played and keep smiled with their works. I think they are like mother like son/daughter, don't you think so ?:-))

Blue and Brown

What could you interpret with blue and brown ? I went to Craft Etc and suprised that their website is decorated with blue and brown theme.I surfed for a while and decided that I need to buy some stamping supplies from them.:-)

Actually I have made some cards using blue and brown combination.I think it's the trendy combination colors now.Its easy to coperate with some other embelishments like prima papers flowers, copper brads, eyelets.

Today I received a blue and brown card from Beth Spaulding.Beautiful Card indeed!Thank you Beth.

Speaking of Patterned Papers.....

I love patterned papers very much and it's always in my wishlist when I want to purchase some stamping supplies and I always blame that I don't have enough patterned papers to make my cards!:-(

Today, I have made a card using patterned papers, it's original a swap from RRM. I really enjoyed making this card, using two kind of patterned papers, stamped image and the trendy papers flowers from Prima, then I have my card done! Will send it to my partner tomorrow!!

Beautiful Background Paper

I love decorating and always purchased some decorating books when I go to bookshop.Yesterday I bought Romantic Country from MPH and I want to share with you the beautiful wall paper that they have printed in the book.It's truly suprising and I am sure I will use it in my cardmaking.
