Happy Hump Day Wednesday

Hey guys & gals,

I have been MIA for a long time now and decide to share some sweet "thank you" cards I had made for a friend. Nothing special, but I was able to incorporate some old TGF stamps and I have been wanting to put those cute adorable stamps into good use.

First thank you card...I used this cute little hula girl which I have always adored.
I used a decorative background paper which I have been waiting to use forever now... Love how the background does so much for the card. I had lots of fun, very simple yet looks like hard work! Stamped the flower on colored paper, copiced the middle to add a little shadowing and cut them out. And of course I needed to add a little sparkle in the middle...used a cute Mahalo saying and there you go!

For some reason when coloring the two images for my cards, I had some what picked out very similar colors schemes and here it is...Another TGF classic.

I copiced her entirely, paper pieced her head piece and add a little sparkle. Very simple card, used different borders and angles of the paper to create this. Used the stamp image tag from Stamping up.

Hope you enjoyed them! I will be putting up more pics soon of my holiday creations :D!!!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween Everyone,

What are you this year? Unfortunately I was too busy to pick up any costumes this I'm myself this year :D. I just wanted to come by and share with you a short blog today and wish everyone a Happy and Safe Halloween. Today's weather on the Big Island of Hawaii is perfect for skies, sunny, PERFECT!!!

Here's a little goodie bag that I put together for my nephews and niece. Nothing much, a little ghost box/bag and I embellished them with their personalized names. I also add a little cute juice bottle I found at Walmart. I was really happy with these, and thank goodness I only had to make 4 :P...

Have a great Halloween everyone...take care!

Happy Friday!

Halloween is literally just around the corner! Can't believe it came so fast, I remembering seeing all these Halloween decorations and candy at the department store and thought "Wow, Halloween is bit early this year huh?" And look, there's only a few more days! So, I'm not much of a Halloween person, but I found some stamps and digital images that I thought would be super fun to make a card with. I'm actually stuck with Halloween cards and no one to give...hmmmm. It's okay it was super FUN making them!

Here they are, these images were mostly found online. The web world is so good to us crafty people. Love it! I got images and svg all on the web, used my cricut to cut out the little bats you see, and everything else were "FREE" digital images. Used Halloween paper and they all are.

All that scraps- Pippi, she's adorable, I had her for a while and never inked her but thought she would be perfect in a Halloween Card.

Sister Stamp- 4th Release!!!

Oh my goodness...this is my 3rd post of the day...its got to be a record for me : D.

GONG HEE FAT CHOY to you all!!! (a little early but it's never to early for New Years...right?!?)

I am here again sharing with you the 4th Release of the Sister Stamps...YAY! I am super excited about this collection. I can actually make New Year cards this year and for Chinese New Years I can make little red envelopes for my niece and nephews, since Chinese New Years is a really big thing in my family :)! Super excited!

My most favorite New Years memory was my sophomore year in High School. It wasn't anything too special but I just remember I had my whole entire family come over for New Years and my cousin had just brought snow down from MaunaKea, all the kids gathered around and decided to build a snowman. I still remember all of us falling and slipping on the roads because it was wet and slippery from the snow, and having "numb" fingers while trying to build this snowman. It was an awesome New Years!

Thanks again for stopping by :)

Some Odd Girl Challenge- Black & White


I have a huge list of things to do and cards to make to enter into all these amazing challenges going on right now. But, as of yesterday I only got ONE done! haha! I am entering into the SOG Black & White challenge. I just adore these odd girls, you can do so much with them.

Here's my card:

I used "Kimono Kaylee" I really like her, as you can tell throughout my blog I really enjoy and LIKE Asian themed "everything" and I just had to get her. I colored her with color pencils and used my favorite color (blue, aquas, turquoise) papers. I like how this came out, it's not as yellow as it seems on the picture but with the flash and lighting it threw it off a little. I used sliver pearls here and there and added a ribbon. Simply but sweet card.

Make sure to visit The Odd Girl- Kristy's 30th Birthday Celebration and join in with all the fun!

Have a great Throwback Tuesday!
