Life is sweeter when shared with friends

Hello again,

Another post for today. I was introduced to stamping for one year now. I still remember my first purchased stamps. Hero Arts is one of them. Since then Hero Arts has been my go-to stamp. I always like them. If you notice my creations I almost have flowers, butterflies on my cards. You can say, it's a feminine style. Well, I have to challenge myself to create a bit different style then. 
Anyway, I enter this card that I made 3 days ago to a Hero Arts challenge. You can visit this link in order to know everything about the August challenge:

Here is my card:

I use one of the sketch as inspiration. All images and sentiment are from Hero Arts. I make the background panels with ZING clear embossing powder, blend it with Ranger distress ink (shabby shutters, mustard seed, spiced marmalade, fired brick, and barn door). The label is from Spellbinder Nestabilities # 4. Cardstock is from Neenah solar white paper.

Hi all, how are you?

So embarrassed being a lazy blogger :( I can do at least five cards by the weekend, but too lazy to post them to my blog. Forgive me.

Last week we had a long holiday in Indonesia due to the Eid Mubarak. I stayed the whole week at home doing everything that interest me. It was so much fun.
Talking about holiday, I remember my childhood. One of my favorite vacation at that time was going to the zoo. Back in 20 years ago, no digital camera, there were many photographers at the zoo offering a photography service using Polaroid camera.

That inspires me to do these following cards:

The finished size is 4 by 4 inch. Stamps using: Paper Smooches - Zoo Crew, Paper Smooches - Chubby Chums, Technique Tuesday - Growing Wild. I blended the background using Ranger Distress Ink.
I hope you like them. Thanks for looking.
