It’s been years since I ever did any card challenges.. I bought a Silhouette Cameo about a month ago and I’m having so much fun with it. Especially making things with vinyl :)
Well today I decided to do Chi Chi Memories July Challenge – Spa Time.. I just love their images.. They’re so cute.
Here’s the July sketch from Chi Chi Memories:
Here’s what I’m submitting :)
I’m still new to Copics (and card making) so I don’t really know how to do those color combos LOL.. For the image I above.. All I did was used a dark color to outline the image and color the rest with a lighter color. Some of the shapes (and the image) were cut from my Silhouette. The sentiment and the lines inside the oval shape… I used my Silhouette Sketch marker to type/draw it for me, instead of me doing it by hand or even print it.
Pillow/Drink: R24 and R29
Hair/Chair: C7 and C9
Skin: E21 and YR00
Hair Towel/Robe: V17 and V15
I should of added something.. It just looks to simple. I’m still trying to get the hang of card making but I sure do love coloring haha.

I may have found the best ube cupcake recipe. I’ve been looking for one for so long. I found one awhile back but it was alright but it’s not as great as the one I made today lol.
So I went to my local Filipino market and bought ube (purple yam) extract (also bought mango extract to experiment with), I wanted to try out this recipe I was given by a fellow Instagram friend I follow (sosweetbites). I just love her work. She makes fantastic looking sweets, very inspirational.
Long story short I made the cupcakes and the whole family loved it. They were eating one right after the other even without the ube buttercream icing. I myself can’t stop eating them. I think I already ate 5-6 since around 5-6 pm (PST) and it’s now 10:47pm.
About a week late but I forgot to blog about what I’ve baked for Halloween. I decided to bake cupcakes and cookies for our customers at North American Motors. I baked too much and there were a lot left over. I should have just baked half of what I’ve made and now a lot of food (cupcakes) got wasted =( . All the cookies were eaten by all the kids and myself LOL. I baked 12 regular size and 24 mini cupcakes of each flavor. There were three, red velvet, chocolate-cinnamon and vanilla. I also made about 75+ sugar cookies and I think 75 candy covered Oreos
