Thoughtful Thursday

Time to stop and be still as it is my day off today. :) I came across this post and thought I would share it with you.

I love her ideas on how to make this day a day full of wonder. Enjoy!

Paper Piecing

I recently bought the Pagoda cartridge for my Cricut machine. I love the images that come with this cartridge!!! I created a framed piece with the bamboo, bird, fan, and flower images and pieced them onto some coloured cardstock to keep the effect simple. I added some buttons for some more texture to the project. :)

Play Date Cafe Colour Challenge

I used the PDCC colour challenge to create this Asian inspired all-occasion card. I love this colour combination!  I would send this card for a birthday or a thank you card for a dear friend. :)

Seeing Red

Hello, and Happy Lunar New Year! I've been working on some cards and projects the last few weeks, and am so happy to be posting on my blog again. It's been a busy time getting used to having a little one at school and balancing life with work and parenting. The crafty time that I can carve for myself is really special and allows me to feel like my own person again!

Here is a project that I made for adoptive families. I love that children are born in their parents' hearts from the first moment that parents conceive the notion of building their family through adoption. So I used my heart punch to punch out some hearts from Asian scrapbooking paper to display this love of parent to child. Hope you like it!
