Hearty Wishes (Item Id#1125)

Hope you are enjoying your saturday!! I certainly am :)

Here is the second card for today which is again for CPS Sketch #158. I just love the sketches at CPS. They are often so simple that you can play along as you like and a single sketch gives you endless possibilities to interpret it. This is my 4th card for the same sketch.....I guess I am turning greedy with each passing day :)


Onto the card, I tried faux frosting technique for the first time with this one and look at me I frosted the hearts....lol
Although I need to practice frosting a bit more, I liked the way it turned out. I used pearl colors to color the hearts. 

And here is how the inside looks.

I am putting this for the following challenges:

The Crazy Challenge (Simple and Elegant)

Spring is in the air (Item Id#1109)


Good Morning people!! Woaaah its saturday...........day to relax and craft!! I just love it :)
This card screams SPRING :). I had not used green and pink for a while so just thought of going with it this time.  


I crushed the green paper to give a little effect. The plaid white background has been created using crayons.(The poor girl that I am, I dont own any pattern papers yet...so I create my own each time :) ) . The pink checked background came with my fruit packaging (So to say that my waste master instincts have returned with this card....lol). The flowers have been painted using water colors.I have popped up one of the flowers to give a 3D effect, I am not sure if its visible in the picture. 

And this is how it looks from inside

Isn't it lovely?? Well, its definitely one of my favourites.

This goes for the following challenges

Crafty Catz (Spring)
Simple Doodles (Show a little green)
All Sorts Challenge (Spring is in the air)
Simon Says Challenge (Show us your greens)

Yellow Blossom (Item Id#2250)

A big Heellllllooooooooo to everybody!! Hope you all are having a great time.Well I have been missing all the action in the blogland for more than a week and I have a valid reason for that. My parents had come over to meet me and I had a great time. Atleast for a week I didn't have to return to an empty house, I had someone to talk to and most importantly I didnt have to worry about cooking... :)

But I really missed the blogland and now it feels great to be back to this amazing world of creativity.

Today I have 3 cards to share with you all. Here is the first one



This card is pretty simple. I have used my embossed offwhite sheet for the background. Flower is a free digital image available at Bird Cards which I colored using water colors. Greens Brads are from Basic Grey.

Purple Haze (Item Id#1103)

Hey ya everybody!! Hope your week is going great!!
Here is a card for Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #44 (MMSC44). They have a lovely sketch this week. When I saw the other entries for the challenge, I knew I dont stand a chance to win this one. The entries are amazingly beautiful. But nevetheless I gave it a try :)




The background has been painted with free hand and flowers are ofcourse from Joanne's Mainly Flowers blog. They are not as good as hers though :).
I tried to do something on the inside of this card and here is how it looks.


I wanted to match the flowers on the front so I hand painted them.

Black & White (Item Id#1120)

Hellloooo everbody, Hope you all are having a good week. Once again thanks to all of you for regularly visiting my blog and being generous enough to leave comments. I really appreciate it!! Thanks a ton :)

This card here is based on the CPS Sketch 156 and some other challenge had the color theme of black and white. And again as usual I have forgotten which challenge blog. You must be habitual of my gold fish memory by now :).



I loved this sketch at CPS. Its very simple and elegant and there is a lot that can be done with it. I prefered to keep it simple this time. The pattern on the small square is hand drawn. The border has been done with a glitter pen. The beautiful black ribbon is from Creative Impressions. You have to believe it when I say that I have literally been spending half my salary on craft's supply :)) .

Lucky me, I found a few more challenges to put this card into. Here they are

Cute Card Thursday (Ribbon Tastic)
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge (Ribbon & Glitter)
