Magnolia Day 2012

We all wish we could go.. lol .. But all of us are really excited for the biggest day in Boras this October :)

This will be a fun event to be attended by the wonderful DTs. They will be having tutorials and demos so please if you are nearby, swing by the shop on these days :)
The new collections will also be available on the Boras shop on Magnolia Day so this is going to be so exciting :)

If I had a bajillion dollars I would fly off at this minute and camp out the shop :) lol..
For those who will be coming, enjoy the day :)

The weekend flew by so fast! One moment I was doing the laundry, taking a nap and now at this very moment I am now preparing to go to sleep and thinking of psyching myself up because it's Monday once again :(
But I do not want to consider this as the end of the week but a start of a new wonderful week :) I guess it's all in the mantra of telling yourself it's gonna be a good one :)
So for the beginning of the week I would like to share a card I made last week. Sometimes I forget that I have really amazing stamps from Magnolia from their very early collections but that's only because the new ones keep me occupied most of the time.. lol... For this card, I used this stamp that I bought earlier this year but never got the chance to color. So I finally did :) Isn't this stamp adorable :)

Hi guys!
I am back with a card to share.. My elbow feels a lot better thanks to prayers and some good old medicine and linements :) Must be my age, I may have brittle bones! lol..
Here's a card I made a couple of weeks ago using a very cute stamp from Magnolia :) This stamp is a special release stamp and for you Singapore stampers, it's available at Paper Craft Gardens. Hope you can drop by the shop, they have a wide selection of Magnolia stamps, papers and DooHickey Dies! It's my little haven here in Singapore :) The shop is located at the 3rd floor of Suntec City Mall Tower 3, near the cinema. On a side note, a couple of weeks ago Pauline Bertilsson, the very talented creator of Magnolia stamps, visited the shop together with her whole family. They were in Singapore en route to Australia for the Paperific event. I was pretty bummed out that I didn't get to meet all of them, but I am still happy that they were able to tour this small but amazing country :) Maybe someday I will get to meet them :)
Ok, here's my card :)

Cardstock: Bazill; Patterned Papers: My Mind's Eye; Alpha: American Crafts; Flowers: iamroses, Prima; Stickers: K & Company; Rhinestones: Kaiser Crafts; Misc: Doily, bells, twine, Distress Inks, Liquid Pearls

Merry Christmas from Coco!

Hello my dear friends!
I feel really sad because I have a muscle strain in my elbow. It has been hurting for a few weeks but never really bothered me however everything changed this week. I couldn't raise my arm or carry anything heavy without flinching in pain. And the bad news is it's my right arm that's hurting which is my dexterity :( So the doctor ordered no heavy lifting, no strenuous activities for my right arm - including coloring for at least a week :( Ugh I am so bummed..
Good thing I have already colored a lot of images :) and I have completed all my assignments including my card for this rounds TOMIC :) We hope you can join us for the fun :)
