Japans cards بطاقات لليابان

السلام عليكم
اليوم الحمدلله خلصت من البطاقات اللي بوزعها على المشاركين في معرض
مجموعة اليابان للف الورق
وداخل البطاقات هديه بسيطه بحط لكم صورتها بعدين إن شاء الله
getting ready for my visit to the annual conference of the Japan Quilling Guild
since most of my supplies are either in progress or on the way to be shipped and I can't afford to delay anything coz thats just the way I am
and I have to be ready at least a week ahead of my departure
so I thought i'd make the best use of what I have already
one of the companies that I keep buying from without thinking is Hero Arts
well coz I know it's a purchase that would be used somehow .. somewhere .. sometime
well .. you get the idea .. it's just one of those things that are hard to resist
so anyways .. I took out all I got and started working
those hero hues are just so perfect for everything I just didn't know it
anyways ...
Since the quilled flowers are bulky and the card & envelope sets wont fit ..
I trimmed around half an inch of the two sides of each folded card
and it did the job
It's magic :)
so .. more pics later inshaAllah :)
List of supplies:
Used Hero Arts Hues Folded Cards
poppy, lilac, & carnation
Background stamps designer woodgrain woodblock design block flourish and dots & stripes cling stamp
message stamp : thoughtful messages
ink : hero hues chalk ink poppy & punch purple card : ink used is dusty concord distress ink

جميل جدا الموضوع

بالأمس كانت مقابلة تلفزيونية على الهواء مباشرة عبر تلفزيون الشارقة
لم أكن أعلم مدى تأثيرها و أهميتها
إلا بعد انتهاء البرنامج
وعند النظر إلى العدد الغريب من المكالمات و الرسائل البريدية
ماشاء الله
من روسيا .. قطر .. السعودية .. العراق .. الجزائر .. ليبيا .. أستراليا .. فرنسا .. سويسرا .. المملكة المتحدة و إيرلندا
جميل جدا أن يتواصل معي الجميع
بعد الاطلاع على مايمكن فعله
عن طريق ؟
لف شريط من الورق
شكرا للجميع على تواصلهم وتشجيعهم وكلماتهم الرائعه
جميل جدا

still waiting for that phone call

I smile at the mention of the holy month of Ramadhan
because who doesn't like Ramadhan
then I grin .. remembering that she would always call before Iftaar
to tell us off for not eating properly
But then I can't hold my tears
my heart aches & goes gloomy
coz I then remember that my grandmother passed away long time ago
and I'm still waiting for her phone call everyday before Iftaar
for the past decade.

So what's been going on so far?

السلام عليكم
من ناحية شو صار لين الحين
نقدر نقول .. ولا شي مهم
لا شيء يذكر
بعدني أفكر أهاجر
لكن خل نراويكم صور شغلات سويتها في هالفتره
I don't know what is it to be honest
is it the fact that I honestly seriously truly feel OLD
or is it the horrible hot weather ?!!
but either way .. it's a very depressing stage of my life ..
like when it's been very ugly and now it's floating over the limits
so at least I can hope that nothing gets worse ..
okay !!
Paper Crafts ..
My favorite cousins wedding in July ..
of course I'm attending ..
and this is the topper for the cards he asked me to make specially for him
what else ?
Last week took part at an Arts & Crafts Souq and met the most interesting and sweet people
A sweets Lady who is even sweeter than her sweets :)
Two Fav ladies who are crazy with their needle work ..
made me think I should take up more arts classes ..
and well .. met few of my web pages visitors .. it was fun :)
and .. well .. trying to get ready for both trips ... India & Japan
Don't even know where to start from ..
it's hard when you have a lousy good for nothing family ..
you end up doing every single thing related to you and them ..
and I have had enough of this .. I've been doing it for long now ..
but I need to get things done .. and well .. YES .. I am a survivor ..
and I'm going to drop dead very soon ..
Yesterday with all the icky feeling I'm doing thru ..
I managed to make two paper dolls ..
so here goes ..
so I guess it's not bad to feel depressed huh ?!
oh .. I forgot .. Japan's trip ..
I Finished this one last week ..
I was working on it for two weeks non stop when I had fever and lost my voice ..
Gonna have to figure out how to ship it though ..
my Sakura Tree ..
I love it
ok ..
that's it ..
gotta get going and start working on more paper dolls ..
Planning to make an army of those and then start making friends with em .. :S
eh ..
well until next time ..
