Lin Mei's May Maybe Malaise

That about sums up my May. Maybe or maybe not. Mostly maybe not...maybe. If I keep this up, "maybe" is not going to look correctly spelt and this post may just end up on the list of maybes. Yup! That's done it ... "maybe" looks completely wrong now. Maybee it needs an extra "e"... Not! *sigh*

I hosted this month's INKlings Cyberstamp and, being a little stamped out after Convention swaps, nominated as the first challenge to make a card that featured Designer Series Paper mainly. With this month's DSP promotion, I was feeling like I could actually USE my DSP for once as there's still time to buy more on sale if I really messed up...

Sorry to hear you're suffering from Maybe Malaise. On a brighter note, I love how you've used this paper. So far only you and Shelli (at convention) have managed to make me think it might be paper I could use - before that I just got scared of it and ran away to put my sunglasses on!

I LOVE that card Lin Mei. (No maybes about that!) What a great idea!

michelle le breton said...

What a great idea and use of punches. I love it.

Leigh said...

Beautiful card Lin Mei. I love the way you've used the punches.

Lin Mei said...

Hey Beth! I think you would look really cool with sunnies on ... if you buy Pink Flamingo, I'll come to the next training day with my autograph book. Is it a deal?

Hello Kerryl! Thank you and a warm welcome to my blog. It was really lovely meeting you at convention and seeing you temporarily adopted as an INKling :)

Thanks so much Belle! It is time for me to get my foodie fix from your blog.

Hey Sue! Thank you and I was so happy to meet you at convention ... really would have loved to spend more time chatting at depth with you. btw I have to say I was very impressed by your snazzy Kiwi Kiss top...

Thank you muchly, Michelle but how much more awesome are your cards?! Welcome to my humble blog.

Welcome Leigh! You sported an amazing array of convention swaps and I missed out on all of them *pout* Maybe next time...

This is a lovely card Lin Mei. I love the way you have made the petals using the oval punch. Saves the fiddley (spelling!) cutting out.
Sorry i missed your cyberstamp. No excuse just a bad memory, thought it was Wednesday.

Lin Mei, this is SO cute!! I am warming to the Pink Flamingo papers - in 'real life' I think they are really pretty. Sweet card, and very creative!

Chris Parker-Barnes said...

That is just such a cute card, Lin Mei. I got that paper as one of my freebies for the "May" promo, thinking that "maybe" I should try to use it, and I just love it, I have used it heaps.
It was great to finally meet you at convention. Hope you are over the "maybe's" and feeling more definite! :)
Cheers
Chris

Hello Marcia! Thank you for visiting this very slack blogger. I am trying to get back on the blogging wagon but there has been so much going on!

Hey Fiona! No problems ... I think that I am worse since I've only managed to finish two of the challenges that I set. You are still most welcome to take part.

Lin Mei said...

Welcome to my blog, Christine and many thanks for your kind comments! Sorry it has taken me a while to say so...

Lin Mei said...

Hello Chris! It was too short a meeting and I still owe you a couple of swaps but it was lovely to be in each other's presence :)
