Oh My God !!

what else can you say when you discover that you are not only the random winner of a 10$ certificate from Softpencil Digital Stamps but your card has also been picked as TOP 3 at Sketch Girl.

Can it get better than this??
Yes, it can!! Because Penny has decided to feature my blog as inspirational on Paper Craftorium

Oh My God!! I really can't tell you how excited I am and nervous at the same time..I got butterflies in my stomach with all these news floating around :D
Thanks to everyone to has visited me, left comments, inspired me to create, followed me!! I feel truly blessed!!

Happy Friday to everyone out there!!

Quick post to share another card using the CPS #168 and the Embellish Butterflies Color Challenge.

I tried hands at the yarn flowers after being inspired from the super talented Ann from All things Paper. She even has a tutorial on the same here. Although my flowers aren't good as hers but I couldn't resist venturing into the unknown one more time :)

The butterfly is hand drawn and here is a close up

Hope you like it!! Thanks for visiting!!

Finally I did.... (Item ID#1134)

QUILLING !! yes its true... I don't know for how long I have been following all the sites with little or more information on quilling but couldn't come to try it out. This time I finally did it :) It isn't very great but at least I gathered some courage to try.

When I saw this week's Etsy Inspired Challenge #89 - Made by Michelle Brusegaard with these creations, I had decided I wanted to quill those poppies

Aren't they adorable? Then I took the sketch from GS#39 and CardPattern #65 (my luck couldn't get any better) and the colors from Stacey's Curtain Call Color challenge #31 and when I combined all of these I got this

ok now...please don't laugh on my quilling :D I know it isn't really great but I hope you all like the card anyway ;)  please let me know...
Updated: I am also entering this card for Sketch and Stash Challenge which with a great coincidence (or should I say miracle :) ) has a similar sketch to follow and new is the Jenni Bowlin butterfly…

Am I lucky??

I guess I am :)) because I received theses Jenni Bowlin goodies today that Kathy from Digital Doodles sent me.

And I have fallen in love with these red vintage buttons and butterflies. They are sooo cute. Thanks a ton Kathy!!

I do not normally win anything but past month has been really lucky for me. I also won these gorgeous crochet flowers at The Crazy Challenge

Then I won couple of challenges at Countless Joys by Katherine with this card and this card. She had also send me a gift over a month back but I am yet to receive it, not sure where it got stuck in the mail :(( . The other gift I should be receiving from her is this

I wish I receive all the goodies soon. I am dying to put all of it to use:)
Thanks for visiting!!

I {heart} You (Item Id#1133)

Happy Weekend to all you lovely people out there!! Hope you all have some great plans for this weekend. As for me, I got to work today as well...poor me !!  :(( Just to make myself feel better and come out of the gloomy feeling of working on a weekend, I made a little cheerful card with lots of colors. I used the lovely sketch over at Sketch Girl and just followed my heart....I guess thats the reason for so many hearts on a single
I went green again with this card(not and used newspaper and bottle corks. I used pearls for the first time and loved the effect!!
Updated : With so much happening around in my life, I completely forgot to write that this is my last GDT submission for Challenge Up Your Life. I had so much fun playing along and being a part of the design team. All the 4 challenges that I played during my stay as GD were so diverse and such a learning experience. And I am glad that the challenge for the next 2 weeks is "Recycling". You all kno…

Hello Everybody!!

Hope you all are good and happy!! I know I have been missing from the blog-land for over a week but then I had so much going on around. I will share the details of what I have been up to a little later :)  As of now I want to share a simple card I made for CPS sketch #167 . I have cased one of Joanne's card from Mainly Flowers. I just love her cards and paper flowers.

I recently received my craft supplies from itsy bitsy which included these metallic paper flowers and I used some basic grey brads to complete the flowers. I also want to put it for Papertake Weekly Challenge (Say it flowers).

Hope you like it!! Thanks for visiting!!

A Friend is a Joy (Item Id#1131)

Happy weekend to all you lovely people out there!!
Today I want to share my GD card for Challenge Up Your Life. The challenge for the next 2 weeks is to use a resist technique and I really found it interesting. For my card I used the Crayon Resist Technique and I used it to color the flowers on my card. The center of the flowers was first filled in with crayons and then I inked up the flower(freebie from MARJORIE) using sponge. The crayon filled part resisted the color. I did the same with leaves. (enlarge to see details). 

The sentiment is handwritten as always. I want to play along a few more challenges with this card. The first being Sentimental Sundays - Someone Special (Friends are always special people in our lives) and the next is Lili of the Valley - Here comes Summer (the colors and flowers certainly speak summer in my card)
Hope you like it!! Thanks for visiting!!

Vintage Rose (Item ID#1130)

Hi  Hope you all are good!! Just a quick post to share a quick card :) I have wanted to do a vintage card for quite sometime and this is it, I finally did it :)
