Baby's First Christmas

Dear friends,

Today I went to a charity event held by international women association for unprivileged children. There were many kiosks from different countries selling art and crafts and traditional food *yum*. It was quite fun, but I was wearing high heels so @_@... my feet hurt now. As a result of one hour walking around, I got some Christmas craft and they are super cute, so I decided to make a Christmas card.

Aren't we all excited that the holiday is coming ^_^?



Hope you enjoyed the card!

Much love,

My First Card

A Birdy Celebration!

Dear all my dearest friends,

Today, I decided to have a celebration for myself since I have so much kind feedback from you. Join in with the birdy party!

Although the colors are not vibrant but the combination of many colors and the repetition of the circles make the card very playful. I am not really sure why the Crayola are there; but all the sudden, I feel like they belong. 

Did you know that birds make sound like my name? "tweet" "tweet" ~ "Thuy" "Thuy". 

As always, a close-up for you! This is one of my favorite cards so far ^_^. What do you think?








I still have to go to work in the morning and have an event to attend in the afternoon so I have to say good night now. Talk to you soon...

love,

My Green Christmas

Hi friends,

Since a lot of us have not had time to do crafts for Christmas, this is for you Missy Smith and Crafty Bear. Christmas love is in the air!!!

This is probably the simplest card that I make, but I like it cause the beads look like Christmas lights :)
Christmas time is the time to believe. Keep running ... the journey is what so wonderful.
love,

My First Card

Joy for the Holiday!

Dearest friends,

A lot of us have started preparing for Christmas already. I have seen so many awesome Christmas cards and crafts from you, so I have to join into the collection.

A Jolly Holiday for everyone! It took me forever to put the beads on the Christmas tree. Very very tedious but so worth it.
I put a big red bead on the sock to make it like a King's. Love the birds on mistletoe branches and a touch of snowflakes worked out fine here... I think ^_*
I decided to take a close up for this one and love it. So Christmas-y!

From now till Christmas, let's keep counting... not the days but on Santa ^_^. Thank you for spending time looking at the cards. I am very happy.

love,

Just like birds, we can't be apart!

Dearest friends,

Birds are always fly in families; just like us, we want to to live among other to love and feel loved. Not until this very moment, I recognized the reason for me creating this card. This is for my brother... I love you no matter where you are. Just like birds, we can't be apart... Old times are forever memories!

I really enjoy this color combination. Very soothing with the jady blue but the red also brings out a lot of strength. 
The hardest part for me was to paste all the little beads around the rectangular. Believe me, the beads are so so small. Do you feel like from this angle, the bird is looking at me saying "Picture again?" 
I used EK Success to make the flowers. First layer is a big flower. Second is a small one and a bead on top. And I'm done. 
Tools I used to make the cards. The only pricy thing is Xyron mini printer, but you can use it again and again.  

As always, thanks for stopping by. You are the ones who keep me dreaming my crafter dream ^_^. Talk to you soon.

love,

Chirp Tweet

Hi there,

I am back today with cute cards. This is Chirp Tweet, love birds saying hi for your beautiful morning. Each day is a wonderful but some days are quite difficult, but please remember "Yard by yard, life is hard. Inch by inch, life is easier" :) I hope this card will bring you some smiles and make your day cuter.

I love the color combination... hopefully, you are too ^_* Blue, Green, Orange, Yellow will make you feel very happy.
I used the buttons to add in more dimension. I also elevated the birds for the same effect as well as to draw more attention to them. 

See you again soon when I have more cards to share.

Christmas Angels

Hi there,

Today has been a tough and long day at work, so I decided not to bring any paperwork home.... well except one but I didn't even look at it. Hmm... what do we have today... oh, it's a Christmas card. Yay!

Red and green are colors of Christmas and they are here in this card, but I decided to go with light green for a more gentle feeling. Nevertheless, you will still see some dark green in the details.
Well, I know my flowers/angels are a bit off center, but you know that's what happens when I try to make cards after work and late at night ^_* (wink wink). It's all about having fun right? right?
I used EK Success to cute out the flowers. For the top rows, I decided choose the mistletoes because they are in dark green and some red which hep them stand out on a lighter background. The angels are right below as if they are hung from the mistletoes. For the last row, I used double layers of flowers in light and dark green and with a touch red beads in the middle. 

Without any words on the cover, I wanted this card with colors and decorations to bring you a joyous and peaceful feeling when you see it. I am lucky to have a home with a family and when Christmas comes, we can all see each other to wish the best wishes for each other's life.

May the Christmas Angles bring to you, my dear craft friends, a lot of happiness..., some cookies and milk and plenty of heavy presents from Santa ^_* (wink).

love,

I've grown long neck missing you

Dear all craft friends,

I have been showered with your kind comments, your following me and all the encouragement. Thank you so much. In the next two weeks, you will see a lot more love cards because right after the anniversary, my husband went on a business trip, so I'm missing him so much. Well, good thing that I have you ^_^. This weekend, I am planning to do some new things with my blog and hopefully you will like it. 

Okay. What I have for you today is a "I miss you" card. Instead of choosing a romantic theme, I decided to choose one of my favorite animals, giraffe. I ran across some foam paper and thought it would be fun to make animals out of them (ha).

GOOD PICTURES ARE HERE NOW as I promised with you.

Romantic translation: Even when I am in the most beautiful garden on earth, I still feel something is missing when you are not here.Giraffe translation: The trees and flowers have grown so tall, I cannot see over the gate whether you are home yet, so I "grew" my neck longer. Oops!!!

A close-up for you
Well, I love the eyes so here is another close up ^_^
Besides a pair of scissors , I use these Xyron guys.  They come in quite handy. 
Well, usually I can make a lot of cards at one time, but today this is it! I hope you like it and you are not growing long neck missing somebody like me ^_*. Talk to you soon!

love, 

My First Card
