TMITA Challenge - I Heart You Tag

Hello my friends, happy Saturday....

It's been quite some months that I haven't made any tags... Wow.. This digi image is sooooo cute that I made three tags. At first, I only just printed 4 times, just in case I made wrong color. But, in my sight, they are all ok So, why not made three right away. These are for my DDs. Even they saw me taking these pics, they said, "Wow, Mom, my name's on it!! Ok, Mom, we'll wait 'till next Sunday.."... LOL. I promise them to give them a Valentine's gifts with the tag on it.. Hope the gifts will be surprises for them. Just small ones..

Here is my take on the digi image that Nina gives in There's Magic In The Air challenge, with theme: Valentine Tag and Stitching. Oops... so sorry, I don't have any needles on my craft desk. Precisely, I forgot where to put them. So many things around the table. So, I made faux stitching using my pens. Thanks Nina, for allowing us using stitching that can be hand drawn.

Color them with Copic sketches.

Each bear bears each name of my Dds. They are 12, almost 8 and 2,6. They are adorable. And my DH is the happiest man in the house, surrounded by 4 girls all the time...LOL....

Thanks for looking...


Faith, Hope and LOVE - Paper Play Challenges Week 5

Wow... I found again this lovely stamp in the box. "How long have you been laying there, pretty stamp?". I bought it several years ago when I had a chance to visit Houston, TX. I think I bought it in Michaels. I still can recall that almost every day, I went to Michaels, just to feast my eyes. I stayed there for 3 weeks in that city and found fabulous and wonderful crafts there, as well as in Hobby Lobby. I joined stamping course ( which I was able to and pretend not to be able...LOL, just to see how they taught me..) I also learned how to emboss on craft tin. It's a lovely craft ever made.

Back to this stamp. This February is really full of heart, flowers and love. In the stamp, it says that "..But the greatest of these..is Love.." I couldn't agree even more... 1000% agree...

Here is my take for PaperPlay Challenges Week 5, with the theme : Love Notes. Do hope it matches...

Light blue cardstock stamped with Hero Arts Clouds with Soft Pool Hero Arts Shadow Ink, Stampabilities Faith, Hope, Love stamp, checked red ribbon, Copic Sketch and punched hearts

Hope you love this verse as much as I do....

Other Hibiscus

More about Hibiscus... Whenever I have to draw, it is always this flower which comes to my mind. Even for "batik" painting, this flower was there. And for fabric painting, I also drew this flower, as you also can see it on my photo in my Profile. I don't know what made me love this flower. What I know, this hibiscus will bloom in the morning. I consider it as a human being, who should get up in the morning and start the activities. And in the evening around 5, the flower will close all the petals and faces down. It looks like it needs some rest for tomorrow's energy. So is human. Needs to rest for gathering energy again....

If you happen to have time and click my Multiply, the title is "J'adore Hibiscus", with the hibiscus flower in the photo profile. This is my Multiply.

"Batik" painting for beginner, from the start to finish took 2 days (I joined this couse while I also was giving craft courses in Cilacap)

In another town, Pekalongan, while most ladies joined batik course, I joined this fabric painting. So enjoyable..

Thanks for looking and for your appreciated kind comments.


Wow!! It's already February. Even yesterday, 01022010 was said a mirror date. For me, it was a day to reflect what we had done in January. May the good deeds continue and the blessings of God be with us all the way.

It's just today that I had a chance to make another card. I really adore this hibiscus stamp. So, I do hope you all don't mind that I use it again. I love hibiscus. Once in my life, I ever had various kinds of hibiscus. The most I love is the broken white color petals with the maroon inside. So lovely.. Also once in the past, I even used hibiscus for my email address (not any loger active) to show how I adore this kind of flower. One more thing about this flower, even to my father's graveyard, twice a year for more than 16 years, while my siblings brought roses or orchids, I brought my own hibiscus flowers.

This card is for my brother who will fly to Chad this coming Thursday to work for WFP (UN) for 3 years. He likes green so much. This flower will remind him of me...LOL... (he gave me 2 books about Jakarta...prior to his leaving)
Hope you will also enjoy this pink hibiscus as well..

CB embossed green and white cardstoks, Penny Black Hibiscus stamp, Hero Arts CL325 Amour stamp, Zig markers on the flower and sentiment

I enter this card for PaperPlay Challenges Week 4, with the theme: color combo Pink, Green and White. Also for Penny Black Saturday Challenge Week 86, with the theme Someone Special. And of course for the sketch challenge in Inspirational Card Sketches #51(a bit late).

Thanks fo looking and for your nice comments.
