Breaking the rules!

Friday night was no gimmick night, went straight home, ate dinner, watch a little TV and off to scrapping until the wee hours of the morning!
When mojo comes there's no stopping, here are my accomplishments last night.

This is my take on CPS sketch #60

A sketch from My Paper World, bday card for Eanna

(love the cupcake stamp from Pink Paislee and added a pompom for texture)

sketch from CardMaps by Becky Fleck

(used my new stamp from Cloud 9)

Anything goes card

(stamp from Imaginisce, also starting to make use of my MM eyelet setter)

and a thank you tag (stamp from Inque Boutique)
And here's a little playing and breaking the rules too! I bought a color wheel early last year but never used it ever! I guess I'm not the type to worry about colors, I play it safe but sometimes I do break the rules, as long as it looks good to me I give it a go, so here's a mix of pastel with dark/bright color.

I did try using my Fiskars craft knife, but eventually used my ever dependable cutterbee scissors! One advise, move away from Kaiser Craft rubons, oh men, I almost cried since it's the last thing I added in my LO, it just doesn't rub-on the LO, I fixed it using my black uniball signo pen. I'm not a fan of rubons but I do buy them, yes coz they are pretty *lol*, but the best I used so far is Basic Grey. Anyway, I did this for Eanna, DD of liliput, isn't she a cutie! She's 3! Happy Birthday Eanna!

One downside, I broke my cutterpede while cleaning up *sigh* I hope I can fix it with mighty glue/bond, oh well.

I'm off now to party!!! Happy Saturday!

hi, marix!!! :) looooove the LO you did for Liliput's DD. mas maganda ngang gamitin yung cutterbee. nagkakalyo na ako sa X-acto knife kaya bought the scissors (kahit medyo pricey - super sulit naman kasi mas mabilis gumupit). :)
