Birthday "hi"!

Crafty friends are the best! Christina (of Christina Hor Designs) (she organizes the Cards for Little Hearts card drive!) recently gifted me the MFT balloon shaker die and it was very handy for this pint-sized card, for a pint-sized person :)

I also followed Christina's sponged sky background tutorial!

The card measures 3 1/2 x 6 3/8. The koala is from MFT Cuddly Koalas, the "BIRTHDAY" is from Lawn Fawn's So Much To Say, and I generated the rest of the sentiment on the computer. "1st!" are some leftover stickers from Michaels.

I started with the sketch from Your Next Stamp's challenge #86, but it got a bit lost along the way, haha. The colours are still there though!

Spreading holiday cheer


I am trying to clear up the scraps on my craft desk and this is a cup that I coloured over a year ago. Yay!

These little marshmallows just wanna jump in the big cuppa hot chocolate. (My husband calls this stamp set the "suicide marshmallows" set...)

Let it snow


Is it ever too early to start on Christmas cards? I'm going to say no :) I've had enough of snow for now though!

Love this faux metal embellishments technique from the ever-amaziong Jennifer McGuire. It's my first time to do it and I am already itching to emboss more of these MFT snowflakes!

Panda hugs


Playing along at the Gerda Steiner Designs' monthly challenge with a rather CAS card. This panda is so super cute! I hoped to give him a bamboo-looking background with the Altenew watercolor stripes stencil, but these must be super bamboos because they grow horizontally 😂

You're "sew" awesome


My first time to play along with the Gerda Steiner Designs' monthly challenge. This bunny is "sew" cute!

I wanted to paper piece a felt heart, but the -20ºC temperature outside dissuaded me from going out to get some; brrrr!
