Hi Scrappy Sundays readers!

Good Sunday morning!
It's been some time since I checked in here.
I'm terribly sorry I had to miss last week's Scrappy Sunday due to the overwhelming workload upon my schedule.
Fondrey's been a big part of my life now that all my weekday afternoons before teaching are devoted to purchasing, stock taking and invoicing etc..

Nonetheless I managed to squeeze in time to make some little cards over the week for two lovely friends' birthdays.

 This is for Kay! I can't resist using the Crafty Secrets stamps  and the new Prima roses!
The image of the girl is stamped and painted over with Gesso so that it doesn't compete for visual attention with the beautiful scroll with the birthday greetings.
I'm beginning to like using Kraft for my card base. Yummmm..
Kraft Cardstock from Ac, Papers from Melissa Frances and Prima Marketing, Prima roses, Stamped images from Crafty secrets, Handscrunched Seam bindings in Earth (email me to purchase), pink lace ribbon from stash, borders punched from Martha Stewart, Copic markers, Gems from Heidi Swapp, vintage brown ink

 I coloured the flowers and leaves (on scroll) with Copic markers. I'm now itching to buy more of that addictive markers. :)
The scroll is also inked on the edges to make it stand out.
Oh, I was thinking that it'll be lovely to stamp her birthday on the inside of the card. I used brown ink for the date and purple vintage ink for the floral wreathe from the same set.

This is the other favourite card of mine.
For Amy dear whom I assumed loves strawberries! hah
Basic grey patterened paper for background, jar and strawberries cut outs, gingham ribbon and lace ribbon from stash, Seam bindings handscrunched, stamped images are all from Papertrey ink, vintage ornamental resin from Melissa Frances, Pearl button from stash

Before it slipped my mind, congrats to Papercandy for the Websters 6 by 6 lullaby lane paperpad giveaway!

 Thanks for playing along ladies!
My heart is filled with gratefulness each time I see you leaving encouraging comments or emails. 
I can't think of anything else but appreciation from you to keep me going in my scrapping journey.
If you have some time to spare, do hop over to my friend's new venture here or here.
She's selling art prints that belong to a series called "the prosaic series", which illustrates the everyday life, the common people and readymade objects.
Basically, all current art prints belong to a series called "the prosaic series", which illustrates the everyday life, the common people and readymade objects.  
They are A6 size postcards , hand-drawn illustrations combined with digital editing, high quality prints. 
She's only selling a card for $2, and $7 for a set of 4. If you find handmade cards pricey, her hand-drawn cards will definitely be a good alternative.
Have a God blessed Sunday! :)
Just to share a quote that the boyfriend and I conversed on the road:
Like grass and flowers, we and our achievements will wither and die.
Only God's words and glory will live forever.
