One for the boys

My brother likes vintage item just like me, I made this card with his birthday in mind


I am entering the challenge over at
Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #20 - One for the boys theme (must have ribbon on your project)


I using my Pixie Kits scraps to make this again, bits and pieces of left over, can you spot them?


Ok, I am going to leave the photos to the minimum, as my internet connection is not up and running like normal yet. I even reduced the photo size to as small as possible, hoping it will help with uploading speed, but nah, it only makes the picture look blurry, husband is not around, no one to fix that, all I get from the internet provider is "we are experiencing difficulties in that area", oh well, this is 3rd day, I wonder how long can I take this "uploading pain" and continue to blog on a daily basis?

Please help Japan!!!!!!

If you know me, not only I love Japan and all things Japanese, I even have plan to live there someday. I also have many Japanese friends whom I met in Singapore and New York, that already moved back to Japan, I am glad to find out that they are all fine but my heart still goes to those who is suffering right now. If you are reading this, Tomoko is organizing an event to help Japan, you can find out the details here, I am sending a package of my handmade cards to Tomoko for this fundraiser, hope you can join in the force to help Japan too!!!!

Yep... I spotted the PDP kit items immediately. I still have quite a few of the Wild Cards left and pulled out My Funky Valentine Kit this morning to use today. Guess we are thinking alike, Kirsty. Thank you for the inspiration... I love what you did with the black papers (I'm really into making cards with black patterned papers). This is a winner!
Thanks for the Tomoko link.
Have a Happy Day!

Love the vintage touches! We have very slow internet here too at times but I have worked a way around it. Load your pics into picasa then e mail them out to your blog - almost instant! And if you don't have Picasa it's free...
