This is where I will be spending most time in 2017.
Living a simple Christian life that reflects the character of God can only be possible in Christ and daily walking in the very Presence of the Almighty God.

Butterflies and Dragonflies
These are my favourite insects and I do so love to add them to my card designs.

Here's a quote about love and butterfly.

"Love is like a butterfly, the more you chase it, the more it will elude you. But if you turn your attention towards other things it will come and softly sit on your shoulder." - Unknown

DIY Thank You Cards
Trying to make my Thank You cards more personal by adding my own handwritten greetings. Coming from one who has yet to learn the basis of Calligraphy :-) Will have to practice more.

60th Birthday Card for Him
A handmade birthday card for a guy who is a musician and spend all his life making beautiful music.
Not easy to make cards for men, right? I too find difficulties coming out with card designs for guys. But I guess, if we think of their interests; example, their pastimes, hobbies or anything they love doing, and work in related elements into the design, then we should be on the right track.
So for this card, I thought of the person I was making the birthday card for and the one love he has that is so consistent day in and day out. It's music!
That's why this card with lots of music notes and scores.
And the words inside this 60th birthday card:  "Follow the music in your heart."

Yummy Cupcake Birthday Card
Am so hungry after creating this chocolate cupcake birthday card. Wish I have the magic power to turn it into a real cupcake :-D
It was inspired by my 60th birthday card from my friends. From the tiers of cupcakes I chose one to create into a card using designer pattern paper and some cutting and shading. Hope to give to a girl friend this Wednesday for her birthday which is on Friday. We're having a early celebration.

**An Update on My Life**
It's been a while since I was active online. So much happened offline and so my cyberlife was kept on hold. Am I back? Not sure. Still a lot going on in the real world that demand my time and attention.

But occasionally, I will check in to see what's evolving on cyber. Also whenever time permits, I plough on to convert my various websites to mobile responsive sites. Slow going but I'm reaching completion. Reminds me of traffic on the highway the other day when my brother-in-law fetched my sister and me to buy curtain rods from Ikea. When coming back, it was slow moving on the highway but although traffic was crawling, we were at least moving and did finally got home just on time to work dinner. Same with my websites, I'm getting there :-)

Hope to have some time to craft today or someday.

Happy 50th Birthday Cards
Problem getting a birthday card for a 50th birthday? Why not make it yourself? It is much more personal and precious. Add a design that has meaning for the birthday person; for example, if he is a musician, use a clipart of photo of a musical instrument, music notes or music score of a favourite song. And if it's for someone who loves gardening, flowers or garden stuff would be great.

Christian - Crafter - Singaporean
Bragging rights
I’m a full-time caregiver to my mom who is suffering from dementia. I especially enjoy cooking and love having my friends over for a meal. I'm also a crafter who's passionately addicted to card making so when all are asleep in the quiet of the night, I'm up into the early morning, designing and making greeting cards. Once a week, you might find me roaming shopping malls, bookstores, libraries, art galleries with my Nikon D90 or just idling in eating places around town. Most often, you’ll catch me staring blankly at my computer screen in deep thoughts:-)
