Just random

Thursday, April 30, 2009
I haven't make any cards these few days (its sound so long...3 days??..lol) and my hands getting itchy. Well.. I guess I only manage do cards till next week because my cousins they all just arrived yesterday and will stay at my place (my craft room) for about 10 days. How?! My hands itchy. It's just too troublesome bring all those stuff out from there and ... yeah. It's just not convenience to carry all those punches, papers, etc. I guess I probably have to wait till they leave. I don't mean to chase them. HAHA!!

..and YES! I'm waiting at library here for my sister they all. They went to attend my cousin's convo. Because my cousin only got 3 free entry tickets (1 for the sister, 1 for my sister and 1 for my bro). My brother said he never attend any convo before, so I just let him go with others. Anyway, will update some photos soon. Ciao~ xoxo

Mother's Day :)

Monday, April 27, 2009
I do not know whether is legal to do this or not. Yet, I still do it tho. :) Mother's day is just around the corner and my church, Hillsong is going to have a great celebration during this special day. What did my brother and I do? See the pictures below:


HA! lots of, lots of card that we picked from the seats where people left it behind. After the service, my brother and I decided pick up few these lovely mum's card to distibute to our neighbour. To invite them to join us during Mother's Day. At first, we planned to collect two rows only.. AND thenn, okkk. Just fewww more rows. Few more, few more. We ended up pick up around 170 cards. Seriously, it's heavy to carry only 170 cards. My brother and I going to distribute to our neighbours tomorrow morning, hopefully they see it and come and join us. Do something special for your mother. Get them lovely flowers, bring them to nice dinner, buy them presents because they're the BOSS :) I {heart} you, mummy!!!

I did enjoyed myself while doing this card (except the moment when I tried to get the right color). I always wanted to use this new stamp set and the challenge up is here. Why not? :) I think this card will be nice for Mother's day too. I think?? I'm not sure whether you guys think is cute or not but hope you guys still like my cute 'owl' card. Enjoy!

This is just a quick post before I head back to cleaning. Relatives and cousins are all arriving next Tuesday. So, we all have to clean the house and the guest room. I made another two cute cards last night. It's easy, but take times to cut the rabbit out. Need to get back to cleaning. I'll update soon :) Enjoy the weekend!!

Sis's 21st birthday

Sunday, April 19, 2009
Sis had her 21st birthday yesterday. We went to an European restaurant, La Boheme. It's locate at Balmain. Nice place and nice food with reasonable price. We took lots of photo over there and I believe my sister already posted up at her blog. So, just hoop over here to have a look at those photos. :) Btw, three of us made our very own design card for sis. You also can find it over my sister's blog.

Anywiee, i just add something else other than food for her 21st'. Yes! We went to watch Monster vs. Aliens on Thursday's night! In 3D!! Yess! I enjoyed it. It's funny.

More cards

Friday, April 17, 2009
All I can say is I have fun making cards. Besides, others also joined me tonight. The boys wanted to make card for my sister's birthday (tomorrow!!). So, I taught them from the very beginning to the end. Seriously, now I know how Marlene felt when she teach those CH's monyet or beginner like me to make cards. Haha..take times but I had fun. It's funny to see how badly they want to finish making the card when they just start making 10-15 minutes ago. They found it's very troublesome. Haha...Anyway, they managed to finish it before 12 midnight and ready to give to sister. I made one for my sister too. I'll post all the cards that we did for sis's 21st after we celebrate her birthday tomorrow. Besides, I also made more cards during past few days. Check this out-

Brownie. Easter.

Monday, April 13, 2009
I think this is going to be a long post with lots of photo and card to show you guys. Start for last week, when I finish my last class at uni last Thursday, YES, Baby!! It's Easter!! A week holiday for us! So, my sister, bro and I decided go Bondi to do some shopping after Friday's Easter service at church. After we finish the service, we all excited going to Bondi. So, we took train from the central straight to Bondi's Westfield shopping center and this is my brother's first train ride at Sydney. So, all good.

BUT.. when we reach there, I had a bad feeling when I see not much people at the train station. As we walk out from the train station, this is really bad. Bondi's Westfield shopping centre is usually pack with people but I didn't see the Peooplee!! So, I guessed proably few stores in the shopping centre didn't open, that's why. Who knowss~ it was the WHOLE shopping centre.*crap... I hate this!! We all planned what to get from there and IT CLOSED during Easter's Friday. Geez.. I should know this (that ang mo usually close their shop during public holiday) after staying at Australia for about 6 years now. Oh well.. we kinda disappointed at the end and walked around for 5 minutes and none of the stores open. SO, we headed back home.

During that night, my sister told me, "Sis, we have to get back to Westfield tomorrow!! Must!". OK! SO, off to go Bondi again on the next day. YAY!! It's opened! haha..and it was packed with people. After finish lunch at food court, I decided head straight to craft store, and sister, brother went to shopping at Myres (sis's fav).
BIG Ferrero Rocher's Easter Egg at Westfield's shopping center. Pretty~


I couldn't believe I spent 1 1/2 hours at Eckersley's till my sister called me, "Sis, almost 4.30pm. We have to catch our bus''. I managed get some stamps and gel pen from there. Happy me :)!! For the past few days, I made some cards. There are 1 and 2 particular that I like. Others? It's not that I don't like them, but is just either I made some mistake and it's just ain't right.. Hmmm. Show you guys what I came out with. Rubs-on, embossing and buttons.

From last week. I made some changes and I seriously don't know whether is good or bad

'Wonderfully You'
Chocolate chip ribbon with green scallop border

Played around with stamp. Brown cardstock
More brown

Brown again

Does this card look empty for you?

Cute card with smiling sunflowers. I should some dimensionals behind the white cardstock which I didn't. So, basically it's kinda flat. At the end, I added some dimensionals at button.

A very simple one

Bright green card stock with new flower clear stamp which got it from Eckersley's. Love it

How about this? I rounded one the top's corner.


On Sunday, we went to Sydney Entertainment Center for Hillsong's very first 'Art From The Heart' and followed up by a celebration service with powerful praise and worship. We got to watch the top 5 film nominates. Click here to watch more short films and here for gallery for artworks. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show! Once you're done watching, please cast your vote at the bottom of the page. 'Immolation by Glenn Stewart' is my favourite. So, I voted for Glenn Stewart. My top choice among all 5 top films. We got to watch another touching film during the service, it's a film between a father and a son. Very touching one. I wanted to vote that but I guess it's kinda long (the original is 33 minutes but edited to become 8-12 minutes film (didn't really know notice how long the film is)) and they didn't put it into vote list. Anyhow, I ( actually my brother) took some photos during the service and some art pieces at the gallery. And videos! Yay! It tooks about 40 minutes to an hour just to upload 1 video. Enjoy!! :)
