Feburary is not only the month of LOVE but a lot of birthdays as well. I am not sure if that holds true for you but I have a lot of friends whose birthdays fall in feburary. And recently I have been really lazy and haven't sent a single card to any of the birthday people which is actually very bad of me.
The month started with the birthday of my sweetest friend "Poonam" better known as "Punnu" or "Poo" on 5th and I had promised her that I will send a handmade card on her birthday and here is the card which I made for her.

Although, there is a Crazy for Cupcakes set by Stampin' up available but I have hand drawn the cupcakes and then painted them using watercolors(to be more economical !!). The sentiment on the card is also hand written (no stamping for me!!) The patterned paper used is also handmade. I used crimson  red, skin tint, brown acrylic colors and mixed them using my fingers to create pattern. Again, its cost effective and good to look at but beware this technique will leave ur finger nails dirty :) 



I haven't dispatched this card yet.
I guess I will need a belated birthday card now ;)

Then came the birthday of one of my oldest buddy from school "Ruchi" on 10th and again no card for her as well.

Then on 11th was my cousin "Ashu Bhaiya's" birthday, and forget the card I didn't even wish him. Now that reflects really really really bad on me.

Coming up on 13th is "Pallavi's" birthday and hopefully I will be able to send a card to her in time. Let's wait and see !!

On 14th, Its "Punnu's" first marriage anniversary and I really want to send her a beautiful card on her special day.

Infact on 14th Feb 2009, lot of people close to me got married. Ofcourse there was Punnu's wedding, one of my cousin Marisha's wedding and another of my very sweet friend Deepika's wedding. 
Now let's see how many cards I sent out this month.

Hope you liked the birthday card !! Thanks for visiting !!

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 


Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching


Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.
