City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 258 ~ CCCB Anniversary CASE THREE

I have some much going on in my head and only realized I forgot to schedule my post in time! 
We are celebrating 5th Anniversary of City Crafter Challenge Blog in the month of April, it is moving into week three where the DT cased Ros' card here.....

When I see this, I knew right away which stamp set I was going to use....

it is my New York City Scene stamp set!

living in NYC for 8 years, it is still magical to me, therefore, I decided to go with silver ink.

I throw in some heart confetti to make it a shaker card as well....

I think this is going to be for my DH come Valentine's day next year, LOL!

The lovely package this week is sponsored by Ros

stop by City Crafter Challenge Blog and play along!

Our Beautiful World 93 ~ Toys

This week at

The word is


I bought an owl die and trying to make felt owl keychain....

left it on my craft table and my little Papi thought it was a TOY for him.... so he rip it off before I even put the keychain ring on it..... : (

He thought every soft toys at home belongs to him.... sometimes he kisses his TOY

sometimes he bites it...

and sometimes they fight over it...

but most of the time, he'd stop when the TOY looks like this..

oh Papi Papi!!!!!

Please stop by Our Beautiful World and play along with us!

I made this card for DH's nephew, it was a graduation card....

I hope it is not rude for me to used the photo he sent us, add a window using the hard plastic that came with the clear stamps I bought every month, and then add lots of confetti inside.

Our Beautiful World 92 ~ Shaken not Stirred

Sorry for being late this week, my traveling usually do not have a lot of notice, DH told me that his daughter just gave birth to a baby girl on Friday, he wanted to leave for Colorado right away but we already bought ticket for Barry Manilow's concert for that night, so we decided to leave early Saturday morning, I didn't have time to upload my photo to the blog since I need to catch my sleeps after the concert to prepare to drive the next day as DH might need help for the 14 hours drive to and back the same day.

Here you go

Shaken not Stirred

Since this is a catch phrase from James Bond referring to his cocktail....

well.... I do not drink AT ALL, so this cocktail mix from a friend was sitting right in the pantry to wait for the photo opportunity.
