Finally after several struggle months...........

 I have a card to show you , my dear friends.
I am so sorry that I was in silent these couple of months.
Many things happened in my family.
I lost my mother in a full moon day.
But I am glad that she is no longer in suffer.
She is deeply missed.

Well, back to my card,
I wish to warm up a bit to coutinue my crafting journey,
so today is a Magnolia Dies day ( for me :-))
You can get all the Magnolia Doohickey dies here:

I used three type of dies, here are:
1) Butterfly
2)Mini doily
3) Peonies

     Patterned paper and sentiment from Magnolia, paper flowers, wooden icons, sweet buttons from Prima Marketing. Other stuff: doily, half pearl, liquid pearl, film strip , brad from all other company and gift from fellow DT Nancie and Yulis.

 I used a mask that I bought many years ago ( LOL ) then applied picket white crackle paint. You can see the result at the lower left corner of the card. I arranged the layer per layer starting with white doily at the upper of the card.

 Here the close up of the card. I stained all the dies' edges with Ranger walnut stain ink and stamped with Magnolia Love sentiment. You can see I also stamped the Magnolia Old Script background at the right hand side of the card.

 The sentiment " Made with Love" from Magnolia. I stamped on a white cardstock and inked with Ranger Walnut Stain with an old look. Spice up with a piece of string and half pearls.

I had a very funny and relax time to make this super easy card. I hope you got inspired !
Have a nice day !

I am so sorry that I was not able to make a single card nor tag nor bookmark in these 3 months. I didn't have any mood to make any crafting thing.

I hope that I am able to turn my crafting journey to the normal path. I hope so. I need your support and encouragement. I wish to say a word of Thank you very much for visiting my blog in these past three months, although there was nothing new to be viewed.

I am alive + Bali Trip Photos

Hello my friends,
How are you lately ?
I have no cards to show you today and I feel sorry that I didn't update my blog recently. I was in creative sabbatical ( which I learned from my crafty friend Jing Van Opstal). I went to Bali for a short and relax trip and here I share some photos with you.
Bali is a unique place. I love it besides the hot weather. Food, beach, accommodation all are perfect. I will go to Bali again, specially Ubud , if I have chance.

Entrance of Tanah Lot

I love this duck. It called smoked duck, a must-try-food when you visit Bali. Even the steamed rice was so yummy.
Oil painting stall at Ubud Market.

 At Uluwatu. I remember the Twelve Apostles at Melbourne.Great Scene.

Ubud Market

Lovina Beach, where we went for dolphin trip. Excellent!
Thanks for viewing my photos and see you next week , promise ! :-))

My Love to you !

Hello friends,
Today I have a wall hanging deco to share. It's for MDUC #229 Hearts and Flowers challenge !
Please join us and let the creativity blooms !
I have a small wall hanging deco which I made from a wooden chipboard. It's about 4" x 4".
 I glued some blank puzzle pieces which you can get at the craft store on the white chipboard. Then I colored the puzzle pieces with various distress inks , for example: mustard seed, fired brick and vintage photo. Then I decorated the deco with beautiful embelishements and paper flowers.

 Here is a close up of the photos. I used Magnolia "Love" heart-shaped sentiment for my focal point. Butterfly dies cut out from Magnolia Doohickey. Hearts embelishments, pearl string from my stash and Live and Love craft, UK.

I tied the ribbon at the puzzle pieces and it can be hung at the wall. Perfect for decoration or a small gift for your love one !
I hope you had fun for enjoying paper crafting as I do ! Please come and join us at MDUC, my sweet teamies have their fabulous creation !
See you in next post !
