I started making cards again a week ago and decided today to have a look at my old blog, Poemsheart. Much to my disappointment, I found that the photos I had uploaded before to the blog are gone. Then I recalled that the original photos may have been moved. So, what to do now?
It would be nice to see the photos back on the blog, so I will have to do some work to get them back...
In the meantime, I will soon be posting my new cards for some card blog challenges.

This blog was initially created to jot down little poems about life and nature, but it digressed to cards as I discovered the hobby of card making. Today I wish to write a poem inspired by a tropical storm.
A Tropical Thunderstorm
The clouds build up
amidst the heat of the day.
The pressure changes,
the wind builds up,
the temperature drops.
The rain arrives.
Peter, patter, it starts.
Soon it is pouring.
The lightning strikes,
the thunder booms,
the rumble in the sky.
The wind slows down
into a breeze,
the rain turns into a drizzle.
All around it is wet,
the trees refreshed.
The rumbling in the sky remains,
the birds begin to chirp.
It becomes very quiet
but for the rumblings.
The earth is cleansed,
dirt and dust washed away,
the air is nice and cool.

It normally takes me a long while to figure out card challenges
but this one took me like less than 10 minutes,
thanks to two wonderful challenges
A very simple card to express
a simple message of thanks.

This card is made for Mojo Monday's MOJO282 Round or Square
and I chose Square.
This card took a very long time to complete.
Why? Finding the right mix of papers, mashing them around,
and finally rotating the sketch clockwise.
That was the answer ~ rotating the sketch.
Papers are from DCWV's Tradewinds Stack.
An oriental touch to the card.

This card is made for this lovely February sketch from Pals Paper Arts
The plum colored card is embossed with 2 Sizzix folders,
with this lovely leftover ribbon from my stash.
The scalloped circles and classic circle in contrasting colors,
and a little label tag tied with Maya Road twine
with space for a handwritten message
like Thanks or Love or Friends.

It's been a while since I was actively making cards
and now finding it hard to get back on track.
This card (2 versions) is made for 2 lovely challenges
The white base is slightly dimpled 220g paper.
The patterned paper is BoBunny's mounted on the cherry cobbler ticket
and for contrast in version 2, I placed the green border.
A simple birthday card for you.

It has been a busy start to 2013 and three weeks since my last card.
Everything is like a flurry of happenings
and we celebrated the Chinese New Year (today being the 10th day).
This simple card is made just for retro sketches rs#51
A lovely sketch indeed.
I turned it clockwise and came up with this.
Dragonfly and flowers by Spellbinders.
Buzzing to you
on your birthday...
