Craft Stamper Feb 2016

I am a ColourQ Coutiers!

I am back!!  School is having a week break this week which give me sometime to go back into the blogging and making some cards again.

I am combining this card into two challenges which are at ColourQ by using black/ white with a spot of colour and at Craft Stamper which is all about "text".

This poppy might look familiar to some of you - it's from PB Divine set.  The original set comes with two poppies only and I added the third one to fill-up the space!

I thought, besides colouring onto this big space, I could also stamped some text onto it - I used HA Newspaper Background stamp.  I did some paper-pieced on this project.  The background splatters are from SU Grundge.  I decided to pop my colour on the leaves.

I added some glossy accents on the leaves to give it a little morning dew look.

Today, is the fifth day that I lost my voice.  The first three days was the worst as I could barely talked just because I had to work with the children. 

As it was towards the end of the second term, we had a bake and sale at school.  I had to bake some cookies with the 4-5 years old children.  As you could imagined already, how could I work without talking to them so, I had to force myself with my whisper voice to give some instructions.  I tried to explain to them that I lost my voice - but they just stared at me and gave me a look "why are you whispering, Ms. Lai Yoke?"!  There was one boy who just whispered to me just because I whispered to them!  At times, it's fun to work with this little children as you don't know what to expect from them.  

So much for the week and I hope my voice will be back soon!  Have a great Sunday!

What a super way to use the PB stamp Lai-Yoke, it looks so effective with te text stamped into the petals.

Hope your voice comes back soon, lots of bugs going round it seems, I too have one of them although do still have a voice - at the minute anyhow.

So funny the little boy whispered back! Hope your voice is back soon & glad you have a week off, Lai-Yoke! Your card is just brilliant! Never would have thought to use the leaves for the pop of color & I love it! Great job with the GA for dew drops, too!
