SNS Holiday Hop Winner

It’s seems a long time since I last posted a card project.

Last week was the International Holiday Bazar here in Doha and yours truly has taken part again for the second time 🙂 It was fun and every year more vendors join in with more interesting stuff to sell. I was busy preparing for the show and hadn’t much time to share a card lately. You can see some photos of the show in my Facebook page.

The past week was also a very sad time for us Filipinos. With the strongest typhoon Haiyan (local name Yolanda) hit the Philippines on 8th November, it has left thousands of lives lost and so much destruction in the Southern part of our country. We continuously pray for all our countrymen affected by the calamity. Even if we’re away, we’re contributing in whatever way we can to help now.

In a lighter note, I’m here to announce the winner of  SNS Holiday Hop, with my take – Christmas.

Using the random generator, we got # 21


Congratulations Janis!

Thank you all so much to everyone who left some love during the hop. I appreciate you all 🙂

I’m back + challenge winner

Hey there! It seems forever since I last blogged. This post should have been live last night but I was feeling so sick again and haven’t had the chance to finish the post. I came back almost a week now from a short break with family. It was short yet so sweet. Had the chance to play again with my little munchkins, KC, Abiel and Aidan. Miss them all already.

Sadly, I got sick the day after my return to Doha. This cough and cold is giving me a hard time. I should be in my normal self hopefully in the next days 🙂

Anyhow, it’s so good to be back. I’m sharing today Sketch-N-Scrap card sketch # 4. The flower stamp is from Hero Arts which I colored in with Promarkers with a combination of Inktense pencils. I love the vibrant color of both mediums. I then die cut the circle as well as the circle outline border, added a button and the some string. The background is partially embossed and I also embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Sentiment sampler.
