Back to my little space!

Whew........ finally, back to my little space, back to creating.... 
Got home late last night, way past midnight, and woke up by the gardener from Moon Valley Nursery at 7.30 AM : (   they are here to filled up our bare backyard, so no sleeping in on a Saturday morning : (
Oh well, at least I get to craft this morning, here's what I come up with

And I think I can make it in time for COLOUR Q challenge # 46
Here's the inspiration photo from Colour Q

I started making this card on Tuesday morning, thinking that I can squeeze in a little time for the challenge, but fat hope, I need to pack my bag and run to the airport, and I can only complete the card this morning, so to say, this card took me more than 4 days to complete, LOL!

DP are from October Afternoon and The Girls' Paperie
Cardstock is from Bazzill Basics
Seam binding is my first try, hand-dyed at home
Stamps are from PTI
Flowers from recollections
Buttons are from PTI too

Good to be back here.... my husband is going to New York City next week and asked me to go along, I think I'd have to say NO this time, I hardly spend any time in my craft room this month, sorry dear!


I have one more thing to share, I received this award few days ago from lovely Elena, but was away from my desk and can't do anything till I come home.

It says - You are the coolest person on earth, LOL, no, I am just kidding, I don't know what it says but I am sure it's lovely things, however, I do know that I need to past to 10 lovely bloggers, so here you go, my speech -

Thanks Elena, for this beautiful awards (the picture is beautiful, the words can't go wrong right?) I am so honored that you picked me!!!!!

and my list of 10 lovely bloggers are (it is hard to just pick 10, but rules are rules)
