Happy Birthday cards

Congrats on winning!

What a pleasant surprise when I was informed that I won the stamp set: Timeless Treasures designed by Theresa Momber of Gina K. Designs. Theresa sent me the stamp set and her card as well. Beautiful! Thanks to Theresa!

I made a card for H. at work with this stamp based on Melanie Muenchinger's Inspiration Mosaic stamp. I love these two stamp sets.

Love U

This is one of cards that I made for Crayola Colors card swap. I like this heart stamp that I received from my dear Mom like Mom. (I don't know how to call her other than that. She is very loving and giving.)

These are cards for Crayola colors: red, blue yellow, orange, green, purple, brown, black. It was fun to go by colors.

Peace on Earth Waterfall Card for CFH Mini Bloghop: August 15

Welcome to my blog! Thank you for stopping by. I am so glad to participate in this good cause again. I hope you get inspired by every blogger's creation.

I made a card for Card For Heroes Mini Bloghop: August 15. Please click the link to start this bloghop from the first blogger if you didn't. Thanks.

I like to make waterfall card. Once I made it, it became easy and it was so much fun. I used blue and pink colored card stock this time for a change. I think it turned out very well. Hope you like it, too.

On this Card For Heroes Mini Bloghop: August 15,I like to share:
1. my idea to "How to make more than one card". It is basically about to plan beforehand to use the leftovers after you punch out flowers or snow flakes. Instead of throwing them away, you can use them as a mat of the focal point. You can make five or more different cards by doing this way without wasting. I made an instruction for my cardmaking friends at work and saved it pdf file but I don't know how to add it on this post. Instead, let me show you these cards as examples.

And these are cards that my cardmaking friends at work made for Cards For Heroes. They made them based on the first card sample that I made. I am going to put a sentiment on each card before I send them to Cards For Heroes.

2. why I love crafting for our heroes. I wrote the following when I participated in Memorial Day Bloghop. The more I make cards for them the more I feel thankful for them. I am grateful for my life.

"I want to take this time to remember all of the brave men and women who have given their lives serving our country.

I remember that we used to write a comforting letter to soldiers who were fighting in the Vietnamese war when I was a middle school student in Korea. My uncle was one of them and he got injured during the war. I saw him suffering from the injury throughout his life. I didn't really know at that time but now I can tell that soldiers are heroes. I am grateful for my life and my work in America safely. Thanks to them for their service!

I am happy to participate in card making and sending cards to soldiers in the battle field through Cards for Heroes. I joined the Card Makers group and started making cards for Cards for Heroes since January. It has been exciting challenges when I had to make cards with the different theme each time. It gives me warm feeling when I visualize whom holds my cards in his or her hand and looks so happy."

3. There are deadline for cards to send such as the Nov 1 deadline for holiday cards for Cards For Heroes. Please visit and find more details at Cards For Heroes.

Thank you for your visiting and encouraging comments. Enjoy this Cards for Heroes Mini Bloghop and have a wonderful weekend!

"Life is peachy when I think of you."

I made this card for STVPF25: Photo Focal Points challenge.

David said the sentiment for me and I printed it on my computer.

I think it goes very well with the photo. "Life is peachy when I think of you."

"Bulgiki" - A famous Korean dish

David treated me at the Korean Restaurant yesterday. We had "Bulgoki" - a famous Korean dish. It is beef that thinly sliced and marinated with special sauce. We cooked it on the grill on the table. Once it is cooked, we wrapped it with lettuce. Tasted so good!
