His Grace is Sufficient for me

Life is full of Ups and Downs =) I faced some difficulty recently and life is kind of stress =) However, God's greece is sufficient for me. Today, Yee Boon, who is good in creating mini clay toys, gave me a nice iPhone ear plug and at the same time, she passed me some supplements from an angel. She said: the angel preferred to be secretive. 
When i looked at the love gifts, suddenly it just feel like God talking to me: "Marlene, do no worry about tomorrow. I know your problems. I know your situations. I will take care of you. I will NOT ONLY provide you will sufficient food, i will provide you with Extra nutritions and dessert as well! Lean on ME. Leave it to ME."

This inspired me to create the below card to express my gratitude- Angels, thank you =)
Visit Yee Boon's creations here. She is not only good in handmade thinggy, but she is good in photography too!!!

Sending smile across the miles

I just came back from Beijing and i miss my Barnabas - Wan Yeen in Beijing. I went there to celebrate her birthday but i didn't manage to make a card for her before i went. So now, i decided to make one card and post to her with a handmade present =) here comes my super simple card =) I personally like it though =)

I am in love with Washi tape but i don't have a lot >< I bought these 3 mt Washi tape in 2009 and only using them often these few months after sawing how people play with these tapes recently. However, i only have plain design though ><

I made this card to express my gratitude to a friend who allowed me to stay with her during my trip to Beijing. She, Tina, not even prepared a nice room for me, she even prepared breakfast for me everyday and spent time at night, sharing His words to me. She made my trip even fruitful than i expected =) Thank you Tina.
