A little birdie.....
told me you're special....
I'm really loving this altered block I did not long ago. I 'm just going to keep it for myself for now but I think eventually this will be a gift to someone.
Here it is...
Raw and naked...lol

Some of the supplies I've used....
And finally the masterpiece...
I told ya' i'm really loving this a lot at the moment.. 
I will be doing another altered block sometime soon :)

I apologize for not updating my blog as often as I should...My MIL is still in the hospital and time is very limited for me to do anything even though I'm dying to do so,yet alone sitting and updating my cyber world. I have tried creating something at night after the visit, but my body and mind just cannot function and let the creative juice flow. It just shut down...Sigh

Thank you for visiting my blog
Stay healthy always
Hope to be back again soon
Love

Better Late Than Never...
This is the Once Upon a Sketch Challenge for 1st July. Yup...I know I'm kind of late but than again, it's better late than never...lol
Here's the beautiful sketch by the talented founder of OUAS, Nadia Canizzo...


You are left with just slightly more than a day to join in the challenge, but if you are running out of time, please do hop over to their site and see all their breathtaking take on this sketch. Trust me, you will be inspired. OUAS Design Team did marvelous job on this, and as always they are so so inspiring.  Ok on that note...here's my take on this...

They required that you have to identify the person in the photo and write something about them, and it can be something about their personality, character, or a short write up about two sentences long....

I have chosen my sister...Sheinaz.
She's my sister my buddy
She is super sensitive but great at heart.
She's my shoulder to cry on.
You can depend on her.
She's wonderful.

A little close up...


I'm really loving the little birdie there and those rose buds...

Well that's all I have for now...
Will wait for their next sketch reveal coming up on the 15th real soon.

Till than...
Take Care

I want to thank Nadia, my new found wonderful amazing, talented friend who is also the founder of OUAS for her kind words and my recognition. To all the wonderful ladies at OUAS as well, thank you so very much. Please accept my humble thanks to all. This will really get me going. My DH was reading it yesterday nite, and I can say, he was equally happy and proud of me.

Good Morning Scrappy friends...
how have you been? Hope you are doing just great and have had a great weekend... It's already July and time is really flying fast.  There's so many challenges in store and I hope to get my hands on them soon.. I've been rather busy lately and have not been scrapping much for almost a week already. Firstly I think I'm on a emotional ride given the problem that I'm having right now. It's very difficult but I have to face it and I cannot give up. I pray each night that God give me the strength to face the challenges that he has set for me. I read a book and it said :
Ensename: which means Show Me in Spanish
Ensename. Show me. A prayer to the Goddess, to the Universal Mother, to the Great Intelligence (whatever you called Him) 
"Show me what I need to learn. 
Show me what I need to let go of.
Show me the path to take.
Show me whatever you want to show me.
Show me how I can serve.
Show me new ways to love.
Show me what I am meant to do."
Ask for guidance, ask for signs, ask for direction, and it will come.....

Well so much of me hoping for here..and on the other hand, another reason I'm sort of MIA is because my MIL is in the hospital. She had a stroke last week and was quite in a terrible state. I've been visiting her everyday since she was admitted. Thank God she managed to pull through and is much better today and it did not caused her any physical damage. However, because of the severe stroke she had, she has lost her speech. Doctor said there is no guarantee if she will ever get back her voice given her age and the clot in her brain. She is 88 years old. Anyways, I hope things will all fall back in place soon..
Let's hope and pray... Sorry for the non-scrappy related bits up here.


Sometime back I did this and have not been posting it...
This is a very simple card I made using the La Blanche silicon stamp...
I stamped and colored it...
I kind of like this stamp because not much pressure is required 
when stamping and the image is very detailed...
Here it is....
that's all for now
I'm leaving you with love and hope that you'll have a beautiful day ahead
Love
