Be sure to tune in for Week 3 of #MayMail (holiday cards) hosted by the awesome Dani @sorryforwastingpaint! πŸŽ‰β€οΈ

Happy May Day! And time for a new wave of challenges! There have been so many I've wanted to take on, but with my time limits, I've narrow it down to these:
1. Of course, we're keeping up with #HPDaily, hosted by the lovely @alilepere With my favourite book this month! OOTP!!!
2. Then #LetterDisneyPixar with @sweetsthrnsass and @sarah_letters , 'Cause who doesn't love Disney and Pixar!?
3. #ShufflePlayLetter is returning with @artsycraftsy at the wheel! I'll have to load my iPod up with some new tunes!
4. @midcy13142 kindly invited me to join #calligracrowd so why not! πŸ˜‹
5. And finally, for the main challenges, #MayMail with @theletteringtribe I've always wanted to make cards, so this is a perfect step!
I may drop in on a few other challenges here at there, as there's so many good ones! And I hope you all enjoy 😊

A Happy Happy birthday to my unicorn-loving friend @artsycraftsy 🌈

Mother's Day paintings are done! MOM is for my mama, inspired by the love painting from @leslie.write.it.all, and the mountains one is for my mother-in-law, who is an avid backpacker. I don't like the way the script turned out (lesson learned: draw lines so you write in a straight line!) but I don't have time to redo this so it'll have be OK! Excited about giving these to them soon. And don't worry, they can't see this post :) #maymail #watercolor #painting #mountains @theletteringtribe

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the mother's out there. Specially to my awesome mom!

In times I am tempted to give up, the thing that keeps me going is to still believe -- that everything will work out for my own good and will turn out to be beautiful in the end.

Haven't done a handmade card in a while but for the last day of #maymail with @theletteringtribe here's my contribution. Although a bit of a downer, this Helen Keller quote is so touching! .

Didn't really follow today's theme, but I just really wanted to get something in for #ohsopunnymay πŸ˜‚ and (more importantly) use my new elephant stamp! 🐘😍 Plus this doubles as a last minute #maymail for my friend who went hunting for this stamp for me! πŸ’•

Anybody have tips on more even stamping? My coverage wasn't great, so I dabbed some spots with a brush and watercolor afterwards πŸ€” welp

Hi everyone! Here is just a #greeting #card I made for my best friend's birthday. I'm not very happy of the result but I thought I could share it with you anyway.

The whole children's ward/building is decorated with a gorgeous underwater theme by awesome local graphic designer @jellybeandreams which is why I chose these colours 😍
