THREE CARDS ON A WEDNESDAY

I’m not really into card making - - the first card I ever made was last Scrapfest (that was in November last year), I haven’t made another until now. Maybe because I’m at my SB highest plus the season’s right, I want to surprise my friends with a little of my handiwork love.

Got the inspiration for my first card from Inspirational Card Sketches (hey, Jona is on the DT!!! Check her lovely work there!!!). Here’s the sketch for the week:

This is my take (this one will go to my Tita Ajing in Riyadh, along with several pictures I promised to send her):

I actually enjoyed doing this that I decided I wanted to make more. I have these BG Archaic papers that I want to use for the longest time (still waiting for those pictures of my kids with dinosaurs) - - I thought I’ll just get creative with them. Hhhhmmmm, archaic? Perfect for friends you have for ages. ;o)

For my second card, I used Card Positioning Systems #102 Sketch:


This is my take (this one will go to my college friend Ember in Singapore):


The third one I’m gonna submit to Scrappinkids. Aniza’s Valentine Challenge is to create a card with anything red to consist only 10% of the card. This is my take (this one will go to Mylene, another college friend, in LA):

That was fun - - and fast. ;o) Maybe because I was thinking of the people whom I’m gonna give these cards to…. Still have to make another one for my friend Christine in Texas. Plus I have to create the LO for AdThis for their Feb16th Ad (promise, the Ad is fab as usual!!!). Please, please, I gotta have more time before Vday (no more time but tonight, honey)…

P.S. I was also able to use my new KaiserCraft Seals clear stamps in my cards. Aren't they great? ;o)
