Friendship Day !

Hi Friends !

It was a craft till drop Saturday for me yesterday...slept at 4 am and was wondering how do people manage to post at that odd hour after creating for so long ! I was dead tired to even click some pics.. ! But now that I am all set and done...this is what took me so long, three friendship day cards for 3 best friends :D

I have used Brenda Walton PP, Pie lane button, handmade rose, TPC Clear stamps and CTMH thread. This card goes to my friend Swati, we met in Infosys while I was working and staying in Chandigarh !
This goes for CraftyJc Freinds Forever challenge !

I have mostly used silhouette die cuts on this one..! This card goes to my college time sweetheart Achin (she is a gal :P), we were alike in so many ways...until she got married :P . We studied and stayed in Pune for 4 years and now she is settled in Mumbai ! This is my second entry for CraftyJC Friends Forever challenge !

And now the third one.........

                                                               Inside of the card

This card is very beautiful in reality, the pic isn't good enough....I am in love with colors other than pink, for the time being :D And this card is for my School bus buddy Akanksha, she is an year elder to me but that is what friendship is age/no caste/no bar ;-) We are still in touch coz we live just 15 mins apart :)

That's my third entry for Crafty JC Friends Forever Challenge !

This was not all which made me wake up till 4 in the morning, I was working on my first explosion box ! It just needs a little finishing and I'll be sharing it soon :)

To all my lovely blogger friends, I want to dedicate this poem

Upon a friend you can depend,
And this has always been the trend,
From ancient times to modern day,
A friend will always find a way.

By lending hands and being there,
A friend can show you that they care,
And friends always know what to do,
To help you out and pull you through.

So always celebrate your pals,
And whether they be guys or gals,
Just treasure them forever more,
For they're the people you adore.

Thanks for being a part of my life and helping me grow as a person, as  a crafter and discovering myself :)

Blue !!

Hi..I am back with another post... I know I am acting crazy but can't stop!! Today I want to share a Blue CAS card. Not much to say about CAS cards so just check this

 I am bad at taking pics..we all know that.. :$...... But these came out OK :) The very pretty roses are hand made and took a lot of time..phew !

There is not much about just admire while you take a look...

My poor photography skills combined with incapable of editing photos in my laptop currently....

A much better pic !

I am entering it for: - Shades of Blue - Flowers - Anything goes - Anything goes - Anything goes

I'll be back again..with a new post soon !

Digi with Ease[L]

Hey girls....
I have started to participate in various blog challenges, not only because it gives a chance to win :D but that it also helps me to grow as a versatile crafter !! I really have started enjoying challenging myself with something new...Well, in this post I am talking about CraftyJC - Digi or Doodle Challenge once again which inspired me to try Digi ! After a successful go at Doodling, I wanted to try Digi too...and here is what I came up with...

The entire concept was in my mind since a long time....I just had inhibitions to try something "this" new - Circle Easel with Digi... :)

It turned out pretty good though....The Digi image is from Sassy Studio !

I have received the flowers from my cousin from USA, recently...finally I have got hold of some pretty ready made flowers

And the cute red button was in the 20-20 ICR swap that I received from Piali !

I am entering this card for these challenges
CraftyJC - Digi or Doodle - I have gone digi ;) - Flowers - Anything goes - Anything goes - Anything goes - Colors of Summer

Pumpkin Doodle !

Hey fellas....Hope you are relaxing and enjoying your Sunday..! I wanted to go and watch a movie...but there is  a dinner planned tonight and then a long week ahead.. :(
So to rejuvenate I decided to give another shot to Doodling after many failed attempts, and finally came up with something interesting !!
As is obvious, the phrase is doodled, but that isn't the only doodling in my card, check this cutest pumpkin
Yesss...the pumpkin and the twines, everything on this card is doodled !! I sound happy I know, but I ought to be after all the yucky doodling that I had been trying the result was really good.
I drew the pumpkin free hand from some blog (I am sorry I can't find it now, I am trying though). And then I colored using my Bic Markers.
Just when I was about to stamp a sentiment I decided to doodle it too !
I also loved trying a new color combo of orange and green !  Hope u guys like it too !
So that's my entry for Crafty JC - digi or Doodle !
