Friend Blend

Click HERE for the "Shades of Green" card for City Crafter Challenge Blog


This is a card I made with my girlfriend Ann Peng in mind.
Ann Peng and I knew each other since high school, we were school mate. She moved to Germany after marriage, and then moved back to Singapore when her husband was posted back to work there. We spent a good 7 years in Singapore, sending kids to school, have breakfast and do X'stitching at Ikea's cafe, shopping at Takashimaya for our favorite Japanese kitchenware. Driving around Holland Village admiring at the 5 million dollars mansions but never dream to live in one.
And then she moved back to Germany and I moved to New York City, we meet almost every summer in Singapore, I've visited her in Graffin, and she visited me in NYC. I love tea and she loves coffee, for many afternoon cafe time we spent together at Delifrance, Ann Peng, this one is for you!


I pick the colors up from The Play Date Cafe


These beautiful colors came from Senior designer of the cafe, Sarah Anderson



Supplies -
Paper: My Mind's Eye, Martha Stewart, Bazzill Basics Paper
Stamp: Papertrey Ink
Buttons: Papertrey Ink
Others: Spellbinders Nestabilities, Seam Binding
