Season’s Greetings

Hi everyone! 
I just wanted to wish everyone a (belated) Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah! 
And an Early Happy New Year! 
This year has been a crazy but fun one for me. Becoming a mom for the first time is amazing but challenging every single day! Phew!  (I still remember starting this blog before getting married, before buying my first place... and now I’m a mom! Time just flew!) 

I just wanted to say, I’m so lucky to have amazing card making, and blogging friends. 
I may only have met a few of you in person, 
and message a handful of you guys in FB and Instagram daily; but I’m so glad you are all in my life. 

Virtual hugs from me to all of you! 

(That’s my baby boy! - he was Harry Potter this Halloween lol hehe)

DT Spotlight - December 2017




Hi everyone coming from the Kitty Bee Designs blog and
thanks for coming over to my blog!

I can't believe it's already December! where did the year go???
I swear the older I get the fast time flies! I wish when days are more fun, it goes slower and vice versa for bad days, eh? December is not only the time where I celebrate Christmas, but it's also my mom's, brother's and husband's birthdays!!! *I've got a lot of presents to buy and wrap... phew*

So, for my December 2017 spotlight card, I used 'Carrot wagon bun' who I imagine is bringing Christmas presents to all her forest friends! Look at the size of her gift (even though it's only a carrot hehehe) 
I thought this would be the perfect digi image to capture this month's holiday and celebrations =)

 For this card I used Lawn fawn 6x6 paper pack called: Let's Bokeh in the snow (and as a Canadian from the Pacific Northwest... many of you know most of us from this area hate snow! no really... we really don't like snow, and prefer rain, since we're just right above Seattle),
Michael's Craft - recollection ribbon and star brads, and 110lb cardstocks, my copic markers, a little wink of stella for the bunny, and I used my brother label maker for the sentiment!

Thank you for visiting me at at Sugar Cards today,
and if you love this digital image as much as I do,
please head over to the Kitty Bee Designs Etsy shop!

Happy Holidays everyone!

I'm so glad you clicked over and came to my blog to check out the card I created for 
Challenge 108: THANKS!!!

For this month's challenge, we're challenge all of you to show us how you're THANKFUL!
and since my American neighbours are celebrating their Thanksgiving, it's the perfect challenge!
(side note: In Canada, we celebrate our Thanksgiving in October, and Remembrance Day in November hehe)

To show how I'm thankful, I've decided to use BASKET OF LOVE BUN!
I just love bunnies and hamsters... and I thought this bunny giving a basket full of carrots is the perfect way to show how much she's thankful for her forest friends, or maybe she's bring it to a Thanksgiving dinner for everyone to eat =)

 For this card I used Lawn Fawn 6x6 petite paper pack called: perfectly plaid fall, Michael's Crafts 110lb white card stock, copic markers, clear wink of stella, recollections large gold brads  and I used my brother label maker for the sentiment.

So, if you love this digital image as much as I do, please head over to the Kitty Bee Designs Etsy shop to grab this adorable bunny, OR click HERE to join our challenge and win her for FREE!

DT Spotlight - September 2017



Hi everyone coming from the Kitty Bee Designs blog and
thanks for coming over to my blog!

and I hope girls are enjoying the first month of Autumn,
which is also my favourite season... and why you ask?
it's because September is when my husband and I first met, went out on our first date
and it's also the month we got married!

Hence this is the reason why for my September 2017 Spotlight creation, I used 'Best Bun'!!!
aren't they just the cutest couple!? I imagine it being my husband and I hehehe
so, I thought this would be the perfect digi image to capture the our relationship hehe =)

 For this card I used Lawn Fawn pint sized patterns called beachside and let's bokeh in the snow (because when we got married, our theme colours for our wedding were all shades of BLUE!), Michael's Craft's 110lb cardstocks, my copic markers and a little wink of stella for the bunny heart and bow!

Thank you for visiting me at at Sugar Cards today,
and if you love this digital image as much as I do,
please head over to the Kitty Bee Designs Etsy shop!
