Storage makeover

A few years back, i bought a mini cartoon storage for my son, but due to many years, the image was blur, and old, so, i decided to do a makeover.

Here is the original ...

so, this was what i did.... I cut four blue cardstocks (since it has 4 compartments) then, i stamped the background with Basic Grey's wild flower...using Versamark .

I add orange ribbon and butterfly stamped image ( also from Basic Grey's wild flower). I glued only the centre of the image, so, it looked more 3D. Lastly, add 2 acrylic gems at the butterfly body.


It become this...

Hope he likes it.... ^_^

CNY cards (aka Ang Pow's cover )

Hi there,

We're still celebrating Chinese New Year...

There is tradition where we give red packet (Ang Pow) to people for their blessing and good luck.

The Red Packet, 红包 (Hong bao, ang pow) is a rectangle envelope used for holding money as gifts during auspicious occasions. Red packets are usually red with auspicious characters, designs or symbols although gold colored red packets are also popular. Some red packets are in different shades of red and even pink.

In this occasion, i'd made 2 Ang Pow's cover with CNY greeting as well..for my -in laws,,,

Above two are the CNY greetings or the cover..and below two are the red packets (Ang Pow)..

Another one is...

GONG XI FA CAI !!  ^_^

Valentine's day is at the corner.. most people who celebrate 'the day of love' will prepare their own cards (a big plus if there's a gift..^_^ ) ..which show in written words that sometimes, hard to say thru orally.

A great quote can add a meaningful translation of your feeling.
As some people might find it's so hard to pour it in, i found a few "love quotes" that i like.. to share with you.., that you can write in your sweet Valentine's card for your loved one....

* Anyone can catch your eye, but it takes someone special to catch your heart. ~Author Unknown

* Loving is not just looking at each other, it's looking in the same direction. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Wind, Sand, and Stars, 1939

Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end. ~Author Unknown

* Love - a wildly misunderstood although highly desirable malfunction of the heart which weakens the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise and the lips to pucker. ~Author Unknown

* Love is a canvas furnished by Nature and embroidered by imagination. ~Voltaire

* Love makes the time pass. Time makes love pass." - Euripides

* "Life is the flower for which love is the honey." - Victor Hugo
