She's an Angel...

Hiya friends! Here is my third card using Kiyomi from Sister Stamps. Do you remember this
I think Kiyomi may just be my favorite image... what do you think? I couldn't decide on what soft colors to make her so I made a few. This one here she is with an angel. I hope you enjoy and thanks for looking!

A walk in the garden...

Here is another one of Kiyomi from Sister Stamps. I couldn't resist naming this card "A walk in the garden" because I totally overloaded it with flowers. I love the sentiment ticket because it's reminds me to do just that.

I'm truly grateful for this life I'm in and I know at times I need that reminder... ok a lot of times!  Sometimes I realize that I'm missing out on life from worrying over silly things. I sometimes get irritable from not having enough time to craft but then I think of all the time spent with my babies and realize that I would not have inspiration without them in my life and they matter most to me... and I would not have the desire in me if it were not for the love of my husband.

Here's to all of us who has such busy schedules and obligations.... Remember to LIVE!

Ok enough preaching, LOL! Have a great weekend!!!

Sister Stamps Release #4

Are you just as excited as I am about the release of the Sister Stamps "Chinese New Year" images?  I can hardly contain myself. They are being released today. I am a quarter Chinese but it was my pure blooded Hawaiian grandmother who always kept the Chinese traditions strong in our family because she worked with a bunch of Chinese ladies for over 30 years.

Do you remember the restaurant Helena's Hawaiian Food in Kalihi on Oahu? Yeah my grandma was the Hawaiian lady there. LOL! People couldn't believe that because I look so Chinese. Every year on my birthday and Holidays she would give me Li See (red envelope) with money in it. Till this day I have all the Li See she has given me and I also keep one in my wallet in case I may need it.

On to my card... I used Mei Li from Sister Stamps first release. I had some old Asian stamps that my mom passed down to me and just added little embellies. I kept it really simple... well, because I need to practice my creativity. I hope you enjoy and if you are interested in getting these cute images below then check it out here.  Have fun inking them up!
