I was thrilled yesterday to receive craft goodies from dear friend Hussena.will upload pictures of the yummy stuff she sent.Also my long awaited embossing powder and punches arrived which I had ordered for( Thanks Priyanka).So though it was a long day...I managed to create this....
The layout is inspired by Prickley pear february sketch and the Sentimental sundays are responsible for my lace and pearl overdose.The flower is handmade..I am still looking for that six petal punch which dishes out fabulous roses...Give me a shout my dear friends if you spot one.

Detail shots of the handmade flower.Because I added a flower this one is apt for the current challenge at Lia Stampz...and the two layered card was inspired by the current challenge at Crazy for challenges.The current challenge at ribbon carousel blog says Anything Goes...what fun!

A sweet farewell

Add Image

Okay don't look at me like that.I told ya I am weird.How can a farewell be sweet right? fFor me it can be.... firstly because anyone who leaves Udhampur has to be happy and secondly because I have packed homemade rumballs in this box.
I had to use the stamps Ujjwal sent and I decided to use them here.
The PDCC colors are used here.The current challenge at DYSU is all about distressing and I have used a lot here.This one also qualifies at the current chalenge at The CASual fridays.
I also made a tag using same colors.Some more detail shots of the box.
Off to give it to our friends.
Thanks for passing by.

CAS card for Skipping stones

I am enjoying and looking forward to Skipping stones sketches and this time too it was no exception.I made a card as soon as I saw the sketch but had to wait till the morning to click the picture.
No point doing that anyway because it is gloomy and dark in the mornings as well.
To cheer me up in this grey and gloomy weather I used COLOR Q colors and stamped butterflies on this card.
This card is inspired by the current challenge at Lawnscaping challenge blog( Use distress inks).And for CASual fridays too.
CS-Jovita's store
Ditress inks
Ribbon from my stash
Sentiment stamp-Jovita's store.
Thanks for passing by.

Colours on Black

Weird title for a post...but you all are aware that I am weird ..right?
My obsession with challenge blogs is still going strong and I am regularly net surfing and looking for challenges and this one is for a favourite challenge blog called Unity Opportunity challenge blog.
I saw the tutorial on Splitcoast and since my white embossing powder hasn't arrived yet from priyanka...I used white ink and then coloured with my watercolour pencils.I love the effect .what about you?

Highlighted sentiment

Short post for now.Just wanted to quickly share a card I made for my secret sweetheart jaya christina for an event on ICR.
Itis apt for the current challenge at Sentimental sundays.
Thanks for passing by.

Butterfly card for Less is more

I love one layer cards.I find them dificult to conceive in head ...but once they are conceived it is easy to execute them.
And this is why I look forward to challenges on Less is more.
Their current challenge asks one to use either dies or punches.
So I am here with my creation.
The die cuts are from ujjwal's store.The beautiful gems are from PIE LANE.
Thanks for passing by.

Gift bag and a tag for a preggy friend

I have a busy weekend craftwise.Friday evening my daughters were invited to a kiddie birthday party and then on sat they are invited again to a friend's bday and my preggy friend's bday falls on the same day.So You get the picture right?
Well I love eye make up and so does she( I presume)I bought her eye make up and a hand held mirror and then made this black and white bag with a splash of Pink to hold her bday gift .
She has a long name and it was practically impossible for me to fit it here I used her more popular nickname.
The colors are PDCC colors.
This tag is absolutely appropriate for a preggy...I think.
What do you think?
Another view of the gift box.The glittery alpha chipboard-karuna's store
Brads-mansi's store
The chipboard tag ,gem and felt alphas-ujjwal's store
Starry embellishment-My stash.
I hope she likes it.Fingers crossed.
Thanks for passing by.

Gift box and a tag

Now this is tricky but I will try and post two projects for two different challenges here.So why am I not making two posts...because both the box and the tag are for one girl.Not convinced? Okay I am lazy......yeah that's convincing enough.
So this is the box inspired by the current challenge at Color Throwdown.
And this is the tag inspired by the current challenge at pollycraft Monday.
Thanks for passing by.

Boy card with girlie colors

Beyond grey challenge blog is out with its newest challenge and quite an interesting one at that....which is to create a masculine card with girlie colors( read baby pink,pastel green and pastel yellow).Now I checked and rechecked this tricky one on their blog repeatedly.....It is pretty tricky...My first thought was to create a tag... a masculine one.So I almost started making one...You always need tags....BUT the challenge said only I thought some more( precisely 15 minutes)I believe your first ideas are the best;and thought of making a shaped card for a baby boy....Ohh come on baby boys are masculine at least GENDERWISE.
And so here I am with my card.
The insides.

Hope this is appropriate.Oh it better be!
Thanks for passing by.

Shaped card...which is sweet too.

Like i said in my last post ...I am addicted to this time I kept checking on the Sentimental Sundays site for its current challenge....and the moment they updated their current challenge....I made this one.I know one of their DT members has also made a shaped card ...but I swear before scrolling down for inspiration ...I had decided on this one.
This card is for a lady in our station who has been blessed with a cute baby girl.I think this one is apt for a baby girl.The template of this card is from The Alley way stamps and so is the image and sentiment.The color inspiration is also from the same.The flowers are from Pie Lane and the oval pink gems inside the card are also from pie lane.
The insides.
I love this card...what about you?
lemme know.
Thanks a lot for an overwhelming number of comments on my last post.I really try and comment on your posts too but with some of you I just don't succeed...I hope the browser and the blogger sorts itself soon.
Thanks for your love and for passing by.

I have been checking Less is More blog since yesterday for their latest challenge and made this one within 30 minutes of seeing the challenge.Such is my addiction with challenges nowadays.
The current challenge at Less is more is really interesting...check it out gals.
I have masked the circular part and the stripes are border strips from Pie lane.The swirl stamp was bought from mansi and the sentiment from Jovita.
The insides.
Ohh yeah the gems are from kaiser kraft and the rest of the underline was completed with piercing.
Hope you like this one.Remember I mentioned that I am making a pack of cards for somebody.this one is the third card in that pack ...two more to go and then will make the card holder.
