Happy Birthday J!

Hiya friends, I am back to blogland again. The cold flu keeps banging at our door and will not leave us. Everybody has been sick over and over again and of course, this has placed a stop on my crafting projects.
This card is for my cousin J who will be celebrating her birthday on New Year's eve. She is a very kind person at heart and will always help whenever she can. I have tucked some gift cards to her favorite stores as a birthday present since she always tells me she has everything :-)
The image "Balloon Bouquet" is from Designed 2 Delight and this was given as a freebie if you participated in last month's challenge. It was colored with my Bic markers and matted on pink cardstock. Adhesived pearls were colored and added. I ususally follow a sketch but this time, I went on my own. The sentiments are from PaperTrey Ink.

{MFT} December Guest Designer Contest

This week was one of the busiest weekend ever and I was reading thru my emails, I saw this cahllenge. I thought I would not be able to make it but I did.

This is my first time I've participated in this challenge. I would love to have more MFT products because MFT have the cutest stamps and dies ever. The stamp used is MFT Joy Ride which is my first and only stamp set I have from MFT. I had this for a while but never got the chance to use it. I used the MFT's sketch.


 Papers are from K & Co and I colored the stamp with my Bic markers and prismacolored pencils. I stitched around the border and used my Dots folder to give it some impression.
