Craft Within One's Means

It has been an eventful week for me.
1) Made about 10 cards because it's my new habit to make at least 2 of each design every time.
2) 9 blog entries.
3) Submitted cards to 10 challenge.
4) Cleaned up the 'craft-mess' every time after I am done.

Well, perhaps cleaning up isn't a big deal. But I do my crafting on the dining table and with my husband's buddy under the same roof, I don't want him to feel the place being cluttered and untidy. London's apartments are known for compact living. Oh, how I wish to have our own place one day soon and a studio corner/room will definitely be vital. ^_^

Anyway, here's the card I made today. 

It says, "Friends are Flowers in the Garden of Life!"

Stamps: Friendship Sentiment (May Hughes)
Paper:Cream Card, Blue Card, Brown Foam Sheet, The Spring Stack (DCWV), Olivia Paper Pad (Basic Grey)
Ink: Black (Caroles Crafts)

Accessories: 3mm Baby Blue Gemstones (Anita's), Glitter Glue, Blue Button
Tools:Multi Frames MDF020 (Nellie's)

Another similar picture with flash to shoot it glitters.

Close up

This card is targeted for these challenges :

And it was supposedly also meant for this sketch from Critter Sketch...

... but to my dismay, I totally missed out on one other important criteria - with the colour PINK! Sigh, wasted an opportunity. Bummer. Next round then ;)


  1. A hint to John eh? haha
    Get a small cozy cottage with a fireplace in the outskirts of London ;)

  2. nah, not hinting to him. don't think it's time yet. outskirts of london? only if we have a car because the journey a nd time for changing of tubes can take pretty long. don't think he'd like that idea of taking so long to go to work :p

    actually the studio thingy would only apply when we have our own permanent hse... when we have decided which country to settle.

  3. I love the banner and all the bling. Thanks you so much for playing along with us at Southern Girls. I hope to see you again at the next challenge.
