Back to Making Cards...

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.

A Poem About A Tropical Thunderstorm

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.

Fastest Thank You Card Ever

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
CAS(E) This Sketch CTS#17 (too late nonetheless) and Dynamic Duos DD#42


A very simple card to express
a simple message of thanks.

Oriental Touch to MOJO282

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.

I think this card came out suitable for Pals Paper Arts PPA153 as my 2nd entry.
Also submitted for The Paper Players Challenge PP134.

Versatile Card for Pals Paper Arts PPA153

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.

Freshly Made Birthday Card with colourQ

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.

Buzzing to You on Your Birthday with rs#51

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...
