My New Journey in 2017 with MHKDesigns

{My DT work for MHKDesigns}

Happy New Year everyone!
I left the last few days of 2016 concentrating on my four blessings' school preparation for the new term commencing today.
There were lots of things to do: forms to fill up, bought school books, new school shoes, wrap up text books, stamp up their names on exercise books and hunting for uniforms to find the right size for my petite youngest child especially took two days!
{I swear I drove all over town and went from one outlet to another until we spotted this shop I never know existed, lol. Unfortunately there's no size and I figured its best to alter the waist by chopping off three inches down and sew back new waist rather than hunting from one place to another}.

Today they are back to school. My two girls are studying in boarding schools. My eldest daughter comes home once a month and my middle girl does so twice a month. My son and youngest daughter remain in my nest keeping me company. Without the two sisters, the little one is learning to be more independent {smile}. Looks like all my kids are busy again studying for their future life after the holidays we had altogether the past five weeks.

And me? Yes, I am back to my routine and finally able to play with paints once again.
My artsy mojo has return as well. Not to mention blogging moment.
Let me announce my news I've been holding back from the last day of November when I was offered by Mynn the owner of MHKDesigns to join her amazing design team.
...Thank you very much Mynn for the offer...

This is my first project for MHKDesigns: January Challenge; a set of vintage style ATCs.
A few close-up shots:
 I used Realistic Roses digital stamps for this project.
I printed two images and fuzzy cut the roses and leaves for layering.
This is this month's challenge inspiration:
Each month we will always have a photo inspiration so that anyone can play along, but if you use products from the MHKDesigns store, you can link up ANYTHING!

I'm taking my ATCs into these challenges:
1. 613 Avenue : ATG with optional twist Totally Technical
2. Get Creative Challenges : Anything Goes
3. Crafting By Designs : Anything Goes

I hope you get some inspirations from my ATCs this time. I look forward to see your creations at Mr. Linky before the month ends.

Happy creating and all the best into the year.
Hugs and smiles,
