Happy Cardmaking Day and a Request!

Before I show you my cards today, I just want to ask you to pray for my home country, the Philippines and its surrounding countries, that are all going through difficult natural calamities recently. There have been thousands of casualties and millions of people displaced by the typhoons and earthquakes that just happened in the last few days. And more typhoons are expected to hit them this weekend. Relief efforts are not enough to fulfill the needs and are slowed down by flooded streets. I still have relatives and many friends living there. For more info on this, please read HERE. Thank you, friends.

  3. Nina,
    I have been saying prayers since I saw the news reports. And I'll keep on with the prayers.
    Your cards . . . Each one is stunning. I love the ribbon on the first card with the button, the curly label looks great with it and your image is gorgeous. especially the way you colored it.
    Love all the trim on the second card. Love how that ribbon looks and the stitching is great. The gingerbread house card is so cute. Great coloring and the paper you used is perfect I really think the brad you put on the bow is pretty.
    what fantastic cards. You always know just what to do.
    Thanks for sharing !
    Hugs,
    Lisa

  9. Hi nina. *hugs* I saw the devastation on my yahoo news page. So sad and yes, I've lifted them in prayer as soon as I saw that. *sigh*....I'm so sorry. On another note though your cards are simply beautiful. So elegant and charming. I especially like the last one with the curtain over the window. How clever!
