it's been a long time...

It has been about more than 2 weeks that I havent participated in any challenge. Well, too busy with my full time job that I need to concentrate otherwise, how can I fund myself for this lovely hobby. Yet, I am slightly sick but crafty stuff will always bring up my cheer for the day. Anyway, I decided to go for this last minute challenge, Pixie Dust Paperie the 1st challenge in October 2010. This card follows the 'Scrap-lift' concept which I took from lots of scraps left over and make a gift tag that can be in any occasion. I am inspired with Kirsty Vittytoe's card with a lady's gown that wraps and sewed nicely. So I use the strong pink crepe paper from my niece's school childrens' day party and make it as lace at both sides of the tag.  As I always like my own handmade flowers, there you see with the light pink and purple attached in the middle of the tag with ribbon tied. Others, are the Sizzix die-cut on the leaves and 3 pieces of MS punched vintage dolly.

I am also playing the Day 250 Challenge Combo of 365 Cards with August, September and October challenge combined. The five items that I include in this card is the flower blossom in the middle that is die cut from Cuttlebug scallop, the crepe paper, punched of 2 types of MS punchers, Sizzix die-cut of leaves, ribbon and glitters on the punched vintage dolly.

This are my takes;



Focus the sentiment with cupcakes Copics colored

focus on the middle blossom

 Thanks for staying up and happy crafting.!!
