Spring Has Sprung ~ DS4J Mid-Challenge #67

Hello everyone! I've been missing for several days attending a family reunion for property hearing two Mondays ago. When I came back, I couldn't craft straight away because it's my son's turn facing chicken pox followed by daughter number two. They got it from their big sister who has recovered with some marks, brrrr. Daughter number three is still safe until today; hoping for the best :) School holidays is just around the corner and the kids are anxious to spend time with my Mother down south (we will leave this Friday). Nevertheless, they have to stay indoor. It doesn't matter if they can't go anywhere so long they can be their grandmother and help out. Honestly speaking, they are totally bored staying home!
Enough blab. Next on my agenda today is to announce DS4J Mid-Challenge. The theme is Spring Has Sprung! Take a peek here to see what my design teammates have created. For my card, I have used a lovely image Tulip Basket and you can get it here.

 Supplies: DS4J image, Origami papers, MS border punch, Copic Sketch, Petaloo flowers, border sticker, Kaisercraft brown ink pad
 I love the texture of these origami papers.
 Making this card is similar to the way I scrap layouts, lol. I love using my own alpha dies and dymo for titles
I love tulips and this time I go for sephia tone.

I would like this card to enter these challenges:
1. Simon Says Stamps Challenge : Flower Power
2. Cute Daisy May : May Flower
3. Let's Create : Ch#70 Die Cuts 

Thank you for dropping by and have a nice day. Till then.
Hugs and smiles,

 I folded the circles into halves  and another halves to add dimension.

I colored her at night time when mojo kicks in at that hour although I dislike coloring at night because of the lighting and I must say this is my bestest coloring so far :)

"The Rarest of Flowers" with Lady Anne's May Stamp Challenge

Hello everyone! Life's been hectic and exhausting on my end since Tuesday when my eldest came home from boarding school with fever and rashes that turns out to be chicken pox. I'm nursing her every now and then as well as preparing my mind and soul if or when her three siblings ever catch the virus from their sister, lol. I was able to take a long rest yesterday and let my mind sleep in the end; it hardly sleep tight when I'm sleeping, hihi. 
I apologize for posting this a little bit late but seriously I don't have much energy to face the computer screen when I had less sleep the last few days attending to a sick child. 

Okay, without further ado, Lady Anne's Challenges is having a new stamp challenge this month and as always is Anything Goes. The challenge starts on May 1 until June 4.
