Crochet and fruits

Hey guys!
Long time, no post hehehe
I've been really busy with crocheting and practicing to get better at it. I've been kinda obsessed with crocheting fruits hehehe
I've made an apple, grapes, pineapple, strawberry and watermelon ©

What kind of other fruits should I try to crochet?

Hey guys!!!
OMG! this is the first Christmas and New Years week I get to spend not at the hospital with my patients... since 2005!!! holy moly! So spare a thought for all the health care workers giving up time away from their families during the Holidays to look after yours.

anywho... I want to wish you all the happiest Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa and an AMAZING New Year!

feeling the Holidays

hey guys!
I'm in this frenzy of making Christmas cards since a very unfortunate event happened to me this past Friday the 13th... someone broke into my car and stole my car manual and extra Christmas cards I hid in my glove compartment I wanted to give to my friends... THAT'S ALL!!! (since I don't keep anything in my car, all he could steal were those things...)
*sigh* I was the 4th victim this week according to cops and neighbours... =(
I wish I could've caught this criminal and smacked him on top of his head with my baseball bat!
I hate the fact this crook ruined the holidays for my elderly neighbours and young families with children...

anywho... here's my card for - feeling sketchy, anyone for anya - in sitches and cute card Thursday

Happy Cyber Monday!
Sooooo the day finally arrived and Cyber Monday Blog Hop with The Greeting Farm is HERE! YAY!
I'm so excited to be in this group of wonderful crafters who are huge fans of THE GREETING FARM stamps! As you all know that I'm a VERY VERY VERY big fan of this company.
Please ensure to drop by THE GREETING FARM WEBSITE and look at all the participants who have joined this hop. Then leave your comments below in each of the websites and cross your fingers!!! Because there's LOTS of prizes to be given out.

If you follow my blogspot already, you all know I ALWAYS create using one of my TGF stamps. There isn't a week in the past 3 years I haven't pulled out one of TGF stamps to play with. But you may not know that way back when I was a starving university student, I could only afford TGF digi stamps... and that's how I got hooked. Here's one of the projects I made this past year using one of those digital stamps.

some of the TGF stamps also come in digital form and rubber stamp like this one
(I used the sketch from anyone for anya)

anywho... thanks for stopping by in my little corner of the web, I hope you all have a SUPER Cyber Monday Blog Hop!  Don't forget to leave a comment to be able to win! 

PS: You have until NOON tomorrow (CST) to enter to win and winners will be announced at THE GREETING FARM FACEBOOK PAGE....
