Hair Time


Before I was introducing to crafting, especially "card making". I used to be a hairdresser for two years, but left the field when I was pregnant with my second child. Now, I'm a stay at home mommy, taken cares of my little ones. Whenever I get the chance, I still work on hair. ;)
I "like" doing hairs, but I "LOVE" crafting more...Lol
One reason: I don't have to deal with picky clients... 


Now, I'm off this morning grabbing some hair colors products and heading over to Denyse's house. I'm hoping she would want some blond in it.  :)

Thanks for stopping by, Happy Monday!

 Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!

Natalie is Cin-Cin little best friend . They known each others since they both were in diapers and now they are big girl, "wearing princess underwear" But in my hearts they are still our little babies...sniff, sniff....




 Natalie loves owls and butterflies, or should I say her mommy is the one into owls. ;) Her room is filled with owl decorations and gorgeous butterflies hanging on her lovely princess curtain. Its the most beautiful little girl room that I never seen before..Seriously!, its that nice!!! Lol. I was also inspired to make this card when I saw this at Target srtore:




Adorable owl blanket! So I created four floras owls using Stamping up regal rose card stock, added a few butterflies, dimensions, and embossed with the mini hearts from texture impressions folder. Another clean, simple, and "pretty" birthday card!


The owl itself is so stinky cute. So, I can't help myself and  bought this blanket for my little baby Vicchini  a.k.a my little chubby owl. ^_^

Fancy Lattice

One of my dearest friend brother is getting marry this summer. Her and her husband is flying down south for her brother wedding. She asked me to make a wedding card for her brother and his bride to be. Her brother wedding theme is the Laker game. The bride and the groom are a big fan of the Laker and their wedding color is gold and purple. GOLD and PURPLE? I know, right? Not a very "pretty" colors to go together. So I tried my best to make the two colors look pretty as they can and I came up with this fancy wedding card for her.

I used Stampin Up Lattice bigz die to make the front of this card.


Here is a closed up! The word say " For the Newlyweds", which is from Stampin Up teeny tiny wishes stamp set.

And here are the inside of the card. I added Boho Blossom flower punch.
The card look much better if you see it in person. 

I hope the Newlywed will be happy to received this card.:)

 Happy Stamping!

What is this?!?

Can somebody tell me what this is? If you guess its right, I will send you a hand- stamped congratulation card with a few suckers...ok, ok, I'm just kidding,.if you are wondering why there a thermometer on top of an ice chest with dutch gray tape in the middle.... its a homemade incubator. And guess who made it again? Yep! my talented and clever hubby. I'm not sure how he made it, but he does an awesome job!
The Chukar eggs is a little bigger than a quail egg, its pinkest brown color and have a hundred of little black spot that cover the entitle surface of the egg shell. Isn't it cute. Last week and these week my female chukar laid a total of eight eggs and more to come. My hubby placed the eggs in the incubator, due to the fact that the hen does not brood its own eggs in a captivity environment.  We just have to wait 25 day for the chicks to hatch, all we could do is cross our finger hoping the eggs is fertile. 


Well, that is it for today! I will see you tomorrow....

Look who's turning...


Today, I would like to show you a simple adorable card  that I had made for a little boy name, Aidan. Cincini little buddy friend. He is turning the BIG 6. We missed his birthday, since he was on a trip with his family. We hope to get the chance to see him this weekend, 

This is a CAS card. To created this card, I used the Stampin Up In Color island indiigo with pool party, basic grey, and whisper white card stock. I though it was the perfect colors combo that goes together. Don't you think so? I embossed the island Indigo card stock with perfect polka dots and the pool party card stock I used the stripes texture folder. For the stamp set, I used Stampin Up Look Who's Turning, retired Choo Choo train and timeless type junior alphabet to die cut the number 6. Very simple and clean. What do you think? Do you think a 6 years old boy will like this card?

Happy Birthday, Aidan! Sorry we missed you, but we hope you have a wonderful birthday! We will see you soon...
Happy Friday!
