Missing in Action

I am missing in action since a week now.. I have got a lot of new goodie stuff, but just not getting time to sit down and create something or even read all your wonderful blogs. My brother just got hooked :D & his engagement is just 2 weeks away. There's soooooo much to do!! Shopping for new dresses/Sarees and jewellery for my Bhabhi (brother's wife is called Bhabhi in India). And I have to get my own blouses stitch! I dont think i can get that stitched in this festive season and that too in 15 days!!
I think  i'll only be able to make a card as DT of craftyJC challenge#4.. and maybe one or two more!!

Will be back soon!

I miss you

I was going through a card book by Nanc & co. When i stumbled upon one I Love you card which immediately caught my eye. I have used a similar concept of partitioning the space into such boxes and writing my sentiment. This card is dedicated to a close friend who is settled out of city and i miss him a lot.

Cardstock & red buttons from my local stationer. Red square, bigger hearts & metal basket charms from Cheap Jack's. Small hearts from Idee. Old scrabble letters were a find from my old wardrobe!

Best Mom

I love this card a lot. This one's exactly my style,Happy & Bright.. Dedicated to my mom :)

The blooms are handmade, layering out flower punch outs.. They are lovelier in reality, with a soft tissue paper & that pearl. I made this card for Yvonne's current challenge by Sherryann to make handmade flowers!
Paper from stash. Ribbons from Itsy Bitsy. Alphas from Hobby Ideas.

On your Special day

I bought some white lace a while ago. Had really tough time taming it :D To create ruffles from lace is not easy. I used some staples for the ruffles and then hid them behind another layer..

Here's another card using similar stuff but a different lace. The guy i bought the lace from, had a very very small peice of this gorgeous broad lace. I couldn't resist buying it, even though the guy was amused at what could i possibly do.. lolz.. And i can make another card from that same piece if i use along the smaller side of the card.. :)

Stuff used -
Laces from local stationer
Butterflies, flowers, sentiment and ribbons - Itsy Bitsy
Papers & cardstock from my local Stationer
Pearls from stash

I Love you

 I Had this Red Heart doily since a long long time. I think i have hoarded this for close to 3 years now :D And here's how i used it -

The blooms are handmade by layering a few flower punch cut outs. The thread is a lovely find from McLeodGanj market. The stamp is a wooden block, bought several years ago from a local shop. Red ink is from Idee and sentiment is printed.

 And another good news. I'll be on DT for CraftyJC challenge #4 as a random participant for challenge#2. :D Super excited for that!
