Color Throwdown Challenge/ Cupcake Craft Challenge/ Whiff of Joy Challenge for Gust Designer Call






Wheee!!! I am on a high after completing my first craft project in a month! We have been back in Singapore for the last month, staying on for another 4 weeks after Chinese New Year. I thought I had completely lost my mojo so I was delighted to be so inspired after blog hopping amongst my favourite stamp challenge sites! There are so many challenges that I wanna participate in that I decided to try my hand at combining the Color Throwdown challenge as well as the Whiff of Joy Challenge for Guest Designer spot. Then I came across the Cupcake Craft Challenge, saw the bunch of daisies and decided I had to use my favourite flowers from my stash. I had discovered them at a crafts market here in Shanghai, so sweet and pretty and I am never sick of using them!

The Color Throwdown challenge was to use these colors:


I could not find a light yellow/ beige colored paper amongst my stash and finally decided to use the bright yellow paper to match the daisies I had intended to use! The stamp used here is from Whiff of Joy's Spring Stamp Kit. I took a gamble and placed a pre-order for the kit after seeing only part of one of the images. I have been impressed with their stamp designs so far and true enough, I wasn't disappointed!!! I lurveee my Whiff of Joy images and their sizes are just right for cards and even scrapbooking layouts!!!I shall try to use them on my layouts soon, just have to brainstorm on how to incorporate them in!


Speaking of scrapbooking, I am absoultey guilt stricken at how much I have spent at the LSS in Singapore when we were back. And on top of that, I am expecting more stash from YSS. One of my parcels sent around Christmas had been sent back to Ericia, stating 'bad address'. But Ericia told me that she had wriiten the exact same address on another parcel which I had received!!! Anyway, I am totally impressed with Ericia's patience and customer service, so I would strongly recommend YSS to friends now! I hope I will receive my stamps from Simon Says Stamp. It has been 2 months since Heidi sent out the stuff and its not here yet. On top of that I had just placed another order with them too! Add that to my win for Lotus Paperie (hip hip hooray! My first win!), I should have 5 parcels arriving!!! Will take pictures and share them with you guys.
