Welcoming the new year with a happy smile!!

Happy Friday people!! Its Friday, my favorite day of the week with the anticipation of a fabulous weekend ahead :)

Its all the more special because today is the last day of this year ending on the note of a promising new year ahead. How could I let go of this opportunity to thank the people who made this year so special and wonderful for me. This was the year I started this blog without knowing I would be meeting such wonderful people and learn so many new things including the art of giving and sharing. This was the year I stepped into a new...beautiful  phase of my life..I got married to a wonderful person. This was the year I said good-bye to my two and a half year employer and this was the year I got operated upon. This was the year which was so eventful that it will always remain in my memories.

In the year to come, I look forward to creating beautiful things, learning and sharing...I look forward to finding a new job that suits my needs and skills..I look forward to stay healthy and I look forward to making happy memories in my married life with the person I love so much :) I hope the new year comes with good things for me and all.

With that note, I would love to share a simple card I made using the Skipping Stone Sketch#57 and Caardvarks theme of Monochromatic.    

I used stamps from the American Crafts Thanks set. 

I would like to dedicate this card to all the people who make me happy...all my regular visitors..readers..well family members and above all my husband. Thanks for being there always. Wish you all a very happy new year!!

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.

I know I w…

10 things I love about you..

...thats what I told my DH yesterday as it was our engagement anniversary. One year back on 16th of May, we got engaged and I wanted to gift him something special and different and that is when I stumbled upon Monicka Wright's blog and decided to case her wonderful note card. I took the colors from Smidapaper May Color Challenge, polka dot theme from Lawnscaping Challenge. And I am also playing along Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge#56 - Get Sticky.

Supplies: papers: Echo Park Papers(For the Record);embellishment: Element stickers from Echo Park Springtime collection, Little Girl, For the Record, Walk in the Park, Twine from the twinery(charcoal)
I used one of my favorite Echo Park collection "For the Record" for this card and love the way it turned out. Added a little hand-stitching along the edges, embellished each tag with lot of elementary stickers from different Echo Park Collection and had the most fun writing those 10 things about DH. It made me fell so ble…

Gond Painting !!

Wishing you all a very happy holi !! Its a colorful spring festival celebrated here in India and I wish that it brings lots of happiness and good things in life for all of you!

And on this colorful occasion, I thought I'd share something different and something close to my heart with you all. I have been crafting right from when I was a little kid and I have always loved to explore different forms of art and craft one of which being the traditional folk art of India.

India has a very rich culture when it comes to art and off late I have been hooked to giving all different forms of folk art a try. After I tried my hands at Madhubani last year which is a folk art from the state of Bihar, I am now hooked to another tribal art form called Gond from the states of Central India (Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh)

I love the way these Gond Paintings look. They are simple and yet so detailed. Its all about filling in the everyday life motifs with dots, dashes and lines.
