Leaving High Hopes Design Team ( Diva)

I choose the last day of 2009 to announce this news as the way to say goodbye to all my diva friends and specially High Hopes rubberstamps. High Hopes rubberstamps Diva was my first position in rubberstamping industry after I involving cardmaking 4 years ago. They gave me opportunity to shapen my cardmaking skills and specially in coloring skills. After my post as a Guest design team member in April 2008, they up- graded me as a permenant design team member in September in the same year , right on my birthday. Thank you very very much High Hopes rubberstamps, for your kindness, generous and all the love, the lady, Tina is a sweet lady, please drop her a line and you will know why:-)) Wish you all, my dear divas, a happy new year and happy happy stamping !!!!

Merry Christmas !!

I know I am not a good girl recently and made you all dissapointed :-(( I suffered from jet lag last week after I came back from Spain & Portugal. I love Portugal very much and would love to go somedays later if I have chance.

Well, christmas is just around the corner, oh my...I just haven't ready yet! Today I want to show you a paper bag that I decorated to have some gifts for a friend of mine. It was very easy to make. Just colored Tilda, cut a rectangle shape patterned paper from DCWV which release last year, added some lace, glitterly snowflakes stickers, some silver decoration pins that I bought in local craft store.It's simple and cute!

I wish you all Merry Christmas and happy new year, hope that we all have a bright year in 2010! Till then!!
