True Friend (Item ID#1129)

Whhooohhoo Its Friday and I am already sooo excited for the weekend. This week has been really tough at work and I have been waiting for it to end soon. Hope the next week would be better.

I made a card this morning for Digital Doodle Club Challenge and took the colors from Curtain Call color challenge#27. I didn't had a color challenge in mind for this card but the colors at current Curtain Call Challenge are fab and go well with my image.

This is what I did with the digi I received from Kathy for joining the Digital Doodles Club. She has some fab images and lots of fun challenges and freebies for the club members too :). Go and join the Digital Doodle Club now !! And I really hope she likes what I did with her image :)

And surprisingly, I did the inside of this card too :)
I am putting this card for Sentimental Sundays Challenge which was to show flowers and sentiment.
Hope you like it!! Thanks for visiting!! 

Life is Beautiful (Item Id#1128)

Life certainly looks beautiful today as its Thursday and weekend is just another day away :)

So here is another card I made for CPS Sketch #164  and 2 Sketches 4 You. Both of which coincidently have similar sketch.
I have been in my water color mood for the past few days, so just painted this little scenery and drew the checks with crayons. The sentiment is of course hand written.

Most of the time I am lazy to do the inside and do it only when someone asks for a card but this time I did it :). Here it is.

Hope you like it!! Thanks for visiting!!

Blue Magic (Item Id#1118)

Hope you all are in great spirits!! Just a quick post to share this card. I love using water colors and it had been quite some time since I did it. So here I am :)
I didn't follow any particular sketch this time. Just did whatever popped up in my head. All the flowers are hand painted using watercolors and added some blue stones. And you must have noticed by now, I can't resist Blue for long :))

Challenges it goes for are

Creative Card Crew#49 (May flowers)
Krafting' Kimmie #26 (Lots 'o Flowers)
Sisterhood of Scrap (Flowers)

Happy Mother's Day (Item Id#1127)

Happy Weekend to all you lovely people out there!!

Hope you are enjoying the holiday and the good weather!!

I want to share my second DT card today for Challenge Up Your Life where the theme this fortnight is a Mother's Day card with orange/pink color combo. Now the color combo was a real challenge for me because I haven't used it before in any of my projects :)

Took me some time to cook this one up. Here is the card

I had to do a lot of work for this one. I didn't have a grey card stock so I cut out a piece of handmade paper and colored it grey. The pattern on both the orange and grey card stock has been drawn with hand. I again used some fruit packaging for the bow and finished with a heart brad. The flowers and hearts are hand drawn and I used a orange furry dust (No idea what its actually called :) ) to cover them up. I hanged the hand written sentiment using the fuchsia ribbon.

I used the sketch at Sketch Girl for this one.

It goes for the following challenges

Clearly …

Thanks a Bunch (Item Id#1122)

Happy Sunday to all you lovely people !!

Hope you are enjoying the weekend !!

Today I want to share a Thank You card with u all and would like to dedicate it to all my lovely followers, visitors, people who take time to leave some appreciation, my family and friends for their never ending support and to everybody who has stood by me and had faith in me. :)

Here is the card

I used the image from Katherine at Countless Joys and I loved it completely. I used some of the fruit coverings for the base and have hand written the sentiment.

I am putting this up for the following challenges

Trees at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog (Item Id#1126)

Thanks a ton to all my lovely visitors and followers for appreciating my work and leaving some love!! I am so delighted with the response :)
Today I would like to share my DT card for Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog. Yes you got it right!! This week I am the Guest DT and I have set the theme as "TREES". I am a complete nature girl and trees are such an important part of it, so I thought lets keep this as the theme and see how it gets interpreted. Hope you will find the theme interesting and will have fun. :)
Here is the card I made to give a little inspiration should you need any :)

The tree has been painted using water colors and I had so much doing it. I used green corrugated sheet for the base and some pattern paper. The brads are from basic grey.

I think this card would ideal for Father's Day or probably dad's birthday because I feel fathers are just like trees - they always stand by us and provide us with all we need.

I am putting this up for the following challe…

Honey Bee (Item Id#2208)

Hello !! Today its just a quick post. I made a card for Moxie Fab World Sketch this weekend and have been quite lazy to post it.
The sketch is quite interesting and I couldnt resist myself from using it. Here is the sketch

And this is my take on it

I am also putting this up for Crafts and Me Challenges who are hosting their first challenge as Fairies or Wings.
Hope you liked it!! Thanks for visiting!!

Rain or Shine (Item Id#2206)

Happy Saturday Everybody !!

Hope you all are having a great weekend!!

I am super excited to share my first GDT card for Challenge Up Your Life today with you all. The theme for the next two weeks is "April weather". Whether you show us sun, rain, a rainbow - or all togehter - it´s up to you.

And here is my take on it

And this is how the inside looks......
The digi stamp is a freebie from Arthur's Clip Art which I coloured using water colours and the sentiment is ofcourse handwritten.
This concept had been there in my mind ever since I saw this digi. Isn't it adorable ?

I hope I have given you some inspiration to get started. So go and play over at Challenge Up Your Life :)

I am putting this card for the following as well
Ooh lala creations (April Showers)
Going Grey with Scrap Creations (April Showers)

Birthday Wishes (Item Id#1101)

Hello All, Hope you all are having a great weekend and enjoying it completely!! I certainly am. I will be a Guest Designer for Rainbow Lady Challenge for the week starting 15th April and am very happy about it. So I had some work to do this weekend and prepared my GD cards for both Challenge Up Your Life and Rainbow Lady, though I cant share them with you at the moment. Keep watching the space next week. :)

Today, I just wanted to share a card with you. This one is quite different in the sense that it is completely that hand painted without the use of any embelishments or pattern paper.
I loved this sweetheart painter busy painting the birthday wishes. And here is the inside of the card with blooming flowers. The sentiments are all hand written ofcourse :)

This goes for the following challenges
Polka Doodle - Birthday
All Sorts #46 - No DP
Charisma Cardz - Animal Magic

Vintage Butterflies and GD call

Hey guys!! How have you all been? I know its long and I havent posted anything. Have been a little busy lately both professionally and personally ;)
Let me start with a good news. I am so excited and happy to be considered for my first Guest Design Team Spot at Challenge up your life....yippeeee !!! Hope to inspire and make everybody proud of my creations. Check out the challenge every fortnight at Challenge up your life and you will see some inspiration from me there for the next two months.
Now onto the card, I made this one 3 days back but didnt get the time to post it. I love the vintage feeling to it. I did try a lot of new things on this one. I had some oil paints lying for ages with me so I thought I'd better try using them this time. But beware, oil paints take lot of time to dry and might even come off the paper...which in my case did :( I used my metallic bronze and gold 3D outliners to create the pattern. After all the difficulties with the color, I loved the end product and …
