Birth flower card

Today's card as the name suggests has got to do with my birth flower( which I did not know until I googled it)Jonquil.Thats the current challenge at Sentimental sundays.I have taken inspiration from the colours of my birth flower and created this.
The stamps used are Ippity which I bought from Ujjwal.The ink is Tim Holtz distress(Mustard seed).The matted gems and the lady bird is from Pie Lane.
This card also derives its inspiration from CASE study.and the texture challenge at Lily Pad.

The cover of my mysterious project

This is a pic heavy post.
And my project isn't complete so you can imagine how many pics it comes with when it is complete.also I haven't clicked many pages.
The cover.This I made for the D2d progressive challenge.that is how it started.But later it shaped to become a sort of a scrapbook.I am making it for a friend.
I love scrapbooks and mini ones too but have never tried one coz i do not have the basic stuff needed to make one.

But since the itch was always there and so was the suddenly formed to take shape yesterday.

This one also gets its inspiration from the ongoing challenge at DYSU.

and I am quite enjoying is pretty addictive.
okay after all the mundane rambling here are the pictures.

Tri fold card

Hey peeps!
I have been busy( so what's new?).Wanted to share that I conducted a workshop, on how to improve one's English through phonics and phonetics ,with teachers and parents at the Air Force school...and it was a huge success.So I will be conducting similar such workshops and also teach children Phonics and Phonetics.It is a fantastic feeling to hold a child's finger and lead him towards a great hobby called READING.
Anyway that was not why I bothered you all.I have a card to show you which is incidentally my first tri fold card and it came out pretty well for a first attempt.The image is fromThe stamping boutique and I have coloured it with water soluble colours I bought from Ujjwal.The paper is from studio Calico and the ribbon was also bought from Ujjwal.It was raining incessantly hence the poor picture quality.
The card.
The insides.
This was made for the ongoing progressive challenge at The Crafter's cafe.Please try and enter the challenge.
Thanks for passing by.
P.S. Right now I am working on something very exciting....something I have been meaning to try but could not.Will show you glimpses of that and of course the cover.The insides have so many pages that I will get bore clicking them and you will get bored looking at them.Can you guess what is it?

Alright net acting up so without further ado here is my card.

Flutterby Butterfly

I am sorry for this hurried post.Still in the middle of shifting.A major chunk has been done but a substantial amount is still left.I had to post this card because it is a progressive challenge on D2d blog and the deadline is very close.
The image is from D2d and I have colored it with color pencils and then added a touch of glossy accents.I have used my new Ippity stamp and the frosted white ink too which arrived yesterday from Ujjwal.This card is suitable for the skipping stones sketch challenge and the sentimental sundays-anything goes challenge too.
the gemstones are from pie lane.
I managed to create something with whatever was left in this house....since the rest has all already gone into the other house.Hope you like it.

If the shoe fits

Short post again today.Neck deep in work plus Air force day coming up so busy with the entertainment.I am crooning old numbers with a professional singer.God bless the audience.Also in the middle of shifting the house and have to make ten menu cards for the big day.Now you tell me ain't that neck deep?
Alright after the daily dose of rambling here is my card.I have made it for two friends.TWO? yeah I got the number right.It is for ERUM who is DT for Lia stampz and the card shall go to a dear friend whose name I can't disclose.
The card.
The image is from Creative Mind of Sylvie.I have used echo park papers to paper piece it.Originally I was going to colour it but then changed my mind.Does that happen to you too?The button is from (who else?)Pie lane.the gems are from Kaisercraft.the circle is cut with my new Fiskars circle cutter.I had a MS circle cutter which I am not happy with.this one is fab.Thanks KARUNA.also have used some masking with my new and old inks.
Karvachauth coming up and I shall be fasting for DH's long life and since its better to tell what you want when you are married for 11 years to avoid disappointment...I would love more TIM HOLTZ Distress inks.I hope DH is listening.
Thanks for passing by and for listening to /reading my ramblings.
