Land of the Hornbills


I came to a realisation that even though I am a native born and bred in the Land of the Hornbills, this was the first Hornbill themed card that I've ever made in my how many years of crafting!! Oh dear! How could this be?! There have got to be more hornbills on my cards in the future haha! (*note to self)

This card was an order from a friend for her ex-colleague who left Miri to return to her homeland in the UK. 
She loves hornbills and this was a parting gift for her. (I can't believe that this card will travel all the way to the UK! Gasp!)

It was indeed quite a challenge to get the right patterned papers, cutting out the hornbill manually (if only i have a Silhouette machine *dreaming on*) and the placement of the embellishments, sentiments etc. In the end, I was well pleased with the outcome :)

Much love,

Chinese New Year throwback!

Hello all! I just remembered that I've not shared my Chinese New Year creations yet!! Yes, the festival was more than a month ago..LOL! I was watching Fresh Off The Boat last weekend (Love that sitcom! So hilarious!) and the episode was about the Huangs celebrating Chinese New Year and it occurred to me that I've not updated my Chinese New Year crafts on the blog yet haha! 

So, here they are, my #throwback Chinese New Year 2016 cards!

These easel cards were ordered by a church member who would like to give these cards to her family & friends. She wanted the cards to have bible verses in them as well. So, the verses I used were mainly of giving thanks and on God's love & provisions :) 

I used mainly reds and gold..since it's the colour of wealth & good fortune for the Chinese culture (that was what Mrs. Huang kept repeating in Fresh Off the Boat lol!)

That's all for now! Looking forward to watching the next episode of Fresh off the Boat haha!

Til then, have a great day ahead

Much love,

Hello everyone! We skipped February (yikes!) and march on into March! The past month was really work that is, and I (Evonne) just totally had to put the crafty side of me aside for a bit..
